A large, tranquil site with spectacular views over the Weald of Kent, One Tree Hill has been protected for public enjoyment since 1911, and is an ever-popular spot for walking and horse riding, despite, or perhaps because of, its isolated location.
One Tree Hill was purchased by Dr and Mrs Jamieson Hurry in 1911 in order to protect the site under the National Trust Act. Since then, the area has become largely deciduous woodland, whereas before it was mostly arable and pasture land.
Although the 1987 storm blew most of the trees down, they have recovered well, and the woods are a great place to see some stunning displays of bluebells in spring.
A network of paths and bridleways run through the site, including the long-distance Greensand Way, which runs all the way from Reigate in Surrey to Maidstone.
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.
