Lydden Temple Ewell NNR, managed by the Kent wildlife Trust, consists of chalk downland, mainly species rich, ancient semi-natural grassland with marginal woodland, scattered scrub and hedgerows. The reserve lies on a south facing slope and can be very steep in places. Visitors are asked to keep to the paths and leave gates as they find them. Dogs should be kept under control at all times due to grazing animals. The reserve is bordered by several roads and these kerbside habitats are also managed as Roadside Reserves. The reserve has little signage on the road but the free car park, and access into the reserve, is situated behind the houses in the middle of Temple Ewell village, on the north side of London Road, opposite the entrance to the High Street.
