Dering Wood has a small visitors car park on the Pluckley to Smarden Bell road. Access into the wood is via an ‘All Access’ kissing gate, also suitable for pushchairs. The terrain at Dering Wood is flat. The first 50 metres of the pathway into the wood has a rough stone surface, however beyond that the paths throughout Dering Wood are unmodified grass and earth surfaces, which can get very slippery and muddy when wet. There are many informal paths throughout Dering wood giving a number of varied long or short walks. There are also two way marked routes around Dering Wood, a short Blue marked route of 2.2km and a longer red marked route of 3.2km. A Permissive Bridleway runs through certain areas of the wood and links an existing toll ride in the north to one running close to the wood in the south. Further information on the history of the site and birds/ animal and plants that are to be found within Dering Wood is available from
