Dudmaston Comer Woods cycling family autumn

Bring your bikes or put your best foot forward this Autumn at Dudmaston. The car park and trails in Comer Woods are open everyday so you can get outdoors and experience the woodland at your own pace.

The Dudmaston estate extends either side of the A442 between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, with the hall and garden to the south west and Comer Woods to the north east. We're currently working to connect the different parts of our estate and create more opportunity for outdoor exploration, every day of the week.

Getting to Comer Woods

From Bridgnorth

Follow the A442 out of Bridgnorth towards Kidderminster. Drive through the village of Quatford. You’ll pass two roadside cafes (on opposite sides of the road) and Hollins caravan park. The entrance to Comer Woods will be on your left.

From Kidderminster

Follow the A442 towards Bridgnorth. Pass through the village of Quatt and the main entrance to Dudmaston Hall on your left. After half a mile, you’ll drive down a hill and approach a 40mph limit. The entrance to Comer Woods will be on your right just after the speed limit sign

Refuel at the Shepherd's Hut

The Shepherd's Hut is our catering facility in Comer Woods, near the barn in Heath Meadow. It's perfect for families and dog walkers who want to grab food on the go. Hot and cold drinks, a selection of home made cakes and ice creams are available here. We're open on Saturdays and Sundays and everyday during the school holidays. Check here for opening times.

Everytime you treat yourself to something on the go, you're helping to look after Dudmaston and protect it for everyone to enjoy for years to come, so thank you.

Car parking

Comer Woods car park is open everyday, check here for opening times.

To reach the woodland, please use the Comer Woods or Old Sawmill car parks. Both of these car parks open every day. Please do not park at Dudmaston Hall as there isn't a safe walking route to the woodland from here.

Parking is free for National Trust members. Please scan your membership card in the parking machine to receive your free ticket. Everytime you visit and scan your card, Dudmaston receives money which helps to pay for on-going maintenance and conservation projects in the woodland. Thank you for supporting us.

Parking in Comer Woods is £1.50 for 90 minutes or £3 for the whole day. Please display your ticket on your windscreen or dashboard.

Bring your bikes

Bring your bikes and try out the new Explorer trail in Comer Woods. This mixed surface route is perfect for walkers, families and those not ready for road cycling just yet.

For your own safety, please ensure your bike is in good condition, you are in good health and appropriate protection is worn.

Walking in Comer Woods

Running

Out for a jog? The Explorer trail is 3.4km long - a good distance for beginners and little legs to try. The route is circular and begins and finishes in the car park.

Natural play

Head to the Scout Camp, half way round the Explorer trail. It's a great place to pause for a picnic and play some of your own outdoors games. Climb the tree with many trunks, build a den using natural materials or challenge friends and family to follow the tree stump stepping stone path.
