Managed by the Woodland Trust, Comforts Wood is made up of 11 hectares of former orchard and arable land. After being gifted to the Trust in 1990, a programme of planting was undertaken, and the area is now an established area of woodland. Exploring the woodland, you’ll find grassy glades and an open ride allowing access through the centre of the woods, while an open path runs around its edges. The site is bordered to the north by mature, oak-dominated, broadleaved woodland, which extends into Comforts Wood. Following the older trees, you’ll find Barnett’s Wood, also managed by the Woodland Trust, which features a seasonal stream which bursts into colour when the bluebells and wood anemones bloom in spring. In the north-west corner, a small pond is surrounded by shrubs and bushes. Limited parking is available at the entrance to the woods on Swattenden Lane, with access to the site through kissing gates.

Easy access information

This park and open space contains uneven trails, un-surfaced or narrow pathways. Also, there are width restricting features, such as stiles and narrow gaps making it difficult for visitors with pushchairs and/or wheelchairs to access some parts of the site.
