The Bore Place trails weave their way through the fields and woodlands of the 500-acre organic dairy farm, offering panoramic views across this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These gentle circular routes reveal secrets of a landscape that has been farmed and worked for over 1,000 years. The trails start and finish at the Bore Place car park and are waymarked by colour-coded directional discs and tall oak posts.

Explore the Farm

Children will delight at discovering the diverse nature and habitats that thrive in the farmland of Bore Place.  The farmland provides rich grazing pasture to the herd of organic dairy cows, whilst futuristic young thrill seekers will delight in the wind turbine, providing energy for the future.

Look out for brown hares that may suddenly dart out of nowhere in the meadows, a rare but wonderful find that you might just discover on your walk and be sure to  stop to admire the view of Bough Beech reservoir, set amidst the wonderful Weald landscape.

Step through ancient woodland, which in the spring is home to carpets of bluebells, the woodland floor providing the ideal habitat to grow in abundance, look out for ponds teeming with wildlife, perhaps you’ll spot frogs, insects, tadpoles or maybe a heron! Listen to the sound of bird song surrounding you in this tranquil area.  In Spring, you may hear the distinct sound of the elusive nightingale, its high and low pitches means you’re much more likely to hear it than see it.
