Offwell Woodlands is a Forestry Commission Enterprise site In the Parish of Offwell. This 50 acre site is managed by the Offwell Woodland and Wildlife Trust and consists of a wide variety of restored habitats rich in wildlife. The Trust works with environmentalists and teachers and it is supported by a dedicated team of volunteers.

The woodland is ‘open access’ and free for all to enjoy. The lakeside tables are the ideal place for a picnic.

We are also very pleased to be able to make our Lakeside Classroom available to Offwell Primary School who regularly use it and the surrounding woodlands for their activities.

To get to the woodlands take the lane down the hill beside the Church. After about 200 metres there is a kissing gate and public footpath across a field toward the woodland. Walking time from the village to the woodland centre is approximately 20 minutes.
