Denny Wood

Denny Wood

A walk through the ancient and ornamental woodlands of Denny Wood, with its fine examples of beech trees and abundant wildlife. You’ll explore Stubbby Copse and Parkhill Inclosures before descending to Holmhill Passage and enjoying the views over White Moor.


Follow the tarmac road through the Denny Wood campsite into Denny Wood. After 800m, continue straight ahead at the junction with the cycle path. Go over the top of the hill and continue downhill past Denny Lodge and Denny Cottage.

Continue on the gravel path past some open fields and go through the inclosure gate

After 1km take the marked cycle path (marker 301) to the right. Continue through the woodland for another 1.5km, through two gates in quick succession, until you reach a cycle route crossroads (marker 287).

Turn right at the crossroads and continue for 750m. Take a left turn followed by a right turn. After 800m turn right, remaining on the gravel cycle path. After you reach the inclosure gate, continue straight across the open grassland, passing Beechan Lane on your left, and through another gate.

Follow the path as it eventually heads downhill, curves to the left and crosses a footbridge takeing you across a stream. Climb uphill until the path meets the Beaulieu Road.

Cross the road and turn right along the track to Matley Wood. Follow the path past the casr park and down to the bottom of the hill before crossing the road up to the entrance to Denny Wood campsite.
