A small enchanting woodland that is a haven to nature.
Home to many ancient Chestnut and Oak trees, Danes Wood is a wonderful place to get off of the beaten track for a dog walk or quiet stroll.
The serene forest glades hide a restless past, as the wood was named after a band of Viking raiders who camped there.
In the spring the wood bursts to life with snowdrops and then bluebells carpeting the forest floor. Come the summer Danes wood is a retreat from the crowds, stop and listen to the songbirds, and look out for buzzards wheeling overhead.
Autumn views from Danes Wood across the parkland reveal a landscape on fire as the leaves change to red and gold.
