Belmore Woods

What a gorgeous little woodland! Muddy as heck and no clearly defined route, so not one of recommend for pushchairs at the moment. But if you’re local to Norwich, a lovely place to explore with a nice pair of wellies!

It’s a short walk from Dussindale Recreation Ground, which is where we parked – there’s a play area near the car park too and another small woodland.

When you enter the wood, the first thing you start to notice are all the fairy doors dotted around the trees. If you keep bearing to the right you eventually pass a few beautiful little ponds. My friend and I thought it was truly magical and the autumn leaves were beautiful when we visited in November.

I had my Viewranger app so we could see roughly where the paths were, but it’s the sort of pace you just go in and explore and follow your nose.

🌿 Length of walk: c. 1.5 miles round from the car park
🌿 Café: No – but a short drive to Sainsburys and Tea, Bags & Shoes is in Thorpe End – follow Pound Lane to the end, turn right and follow the path into Thorpe End
🌿 Play area: Yes! A great one next to the car park with a zip wire and tunnel slide
🌿 Pushchair friendly: Apparently 3-wheelers/off roaders are OK but not general strollers. Muddy in winter
🌿 Wheelchair friendly: No
🌿 Dog friendly: Yes – we saw some off lead
🌿 Toilets/baby change: No – but some nearby at Thorpe Rec, hopefully they are open
🌿 Seats along walk: Places to sit if you look hard enough
🌿 Picnic area: No
🌿 Opening times: Always open
🌿 Entrance fee: Free
🌿 Parking: We parked at Dussindale Recreation Ground (NR7 0UT – what3words ///sailor.awards.intelligible). The wood entrance is further down Pound Lane, past the Oasis ///rises.chill.complains
