A Site of Special Scientific Interest, Stubbs Wood is a long, narrow stretch of woodland, home to many rare animals and plants, which sits atop the Greensand Ridge and commands superb views over the Weald down to Bough Beech reservoir.
Footpaths run along the ridge from east to west, with the thick flora occasionally allowing glimpses over mile upon mile of Kentish countryside away to the south.
Made up of ancient woodland dominated by oak and beech trees, at Stubbs Wood you’ll also find a lot of holly, whitebeam, ash, chestnut, hazel and rowan, set amongst a carpet of bluebells, wood sorrel and ramsons in spring.
Unusually for Kent, some areas of heathland are also present, made up of heather, bracken, bilberry, wavy hair grass and heath speedwell.
The site lies just a few hundred metres down Wheatsheaf Hill from Ide Hill, a National Trust woodland, and the two sites can be enjoyed together as part of a longer walk around the area, which can also take in a number of other woods and National Trust attractions.
