Directions to the Woodland Education Centre from Offwell Village

From Offwell Village Hall car park, walk back towards the school and the church in the middle of the village. Take the single track road which runs down the hill alongside the church.

Turn left and go down the hill past the church.


Continue along this road until you come to the first field on the right-hand side of the road. The field is just beyond some thatched cottages. It has a large gate and a smaller kissing gate alongside. There is a public footpath sign by the gates.

Go across the field to the kissing gate diagonally opposite.


Go into the field and you will see a well-worn path leading across the right hand side of the field to a wooden kissing gate almost diagonally opposite you.

Please keep to the footpath.

Go across the field and through this kissing gate and you will be in the Woodland Education Centre. You can access an interactive map of the Centre here.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome. Please keep them on a lead as you walk across the field.

The Centre is open at all times and there is no charge for entry.
