Discover carpets of bluebells on Clent

bluebells carpeting the floor in woodland

From late April until mid May the Clent Hills are carpeted with bluebells.

You can find bluebells in lots of areas on the hills. One of the best spots is in the valley behind the Four Stones, where the sides of the valley are covered in bluebells, and the woods at the bottom of the valley are also carpeted in them. From the Nimmings Wood car park, head up the easy access path to the viewpoint near the top. From there, head down towards the log pile and gate in the bottom left corner of the slope. As you approach the log pile, take the path on the left heading behind you round into the Bluebell Valley.

If you'd like to go further off the beaten track and discover more bluebell woods then head over to Walton Hill. Most of the wooded areas have bluebells dotted through them and they spring up on many of the open grassland.

If you are parking at Nimmings Wood, visit the Welcome Point near the cafe and the staff can point you in the right direction.

 

Guided walks

Once again, we will be running a series of guided walks to view the bluebells across the Hills with our volunteer team.  The walks leave from the cafe at Nimmings Wood Car Park and cost £2.50 per person - tickets are bookable online for a 5% booking fee.

We have a range of walks, depending on who is visiting and how far you want to walk! Longer walks can be strenuous at times and for all walks, you will need to come prepared with suitable clothing and footwear for the weather. Click on the links below for more information on each walk.

As we often go though fields with lambs in we're afraid we can't take dogs on these walks.
