Buckenham Woods

Absolutely beautiful little spot. Although I’ve seen pushchairs in the main part of the wood, I would suggest a baby carrier for the bluebell wood section. We came here when my little girl was a toddler and had a lovely time – it was stunning. There is a small car park off Wood Lane but be careful when leaving as it’s on a bit of a blind corner.

There are carpets of bluebells throughout the woods nearest Wood Lane, but it’s a lovely place and would be nice any time of the year.

It’s only a small wood, but really close to Buckenham Marshes and Strumpshaw Fen for even more adventures.
