Woodland Walks

The Woodland Walk used to extend down to Cowden Castle, but now exists as a scenic walk east of the garden which has been filled with activities for children and families. It features a wishing tree, where you can write down your wishes and hang them upon its branches so they will come true, a river crossing, where you can make a small boat from bark to send sailing down the river, a site to build dens from tree branches, and several other fun games and activities.

The Woodland Walk is now accessible to wheelchair users, as we have replaced the bridge which previously had some steps with a wheelchair-friendly alternative. However, some of the paths are still slightly uneven and the walk features some hilly slopes so please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff if you are unsure or want any further information.
