Lower Woods Nature Reserve

15 mins walk, or from Wickwar centre: 15 mins cycle along road / 8 mins drive

Sitting on Wickwar’s doorstep is one of the largest ancient woodlands in the south-west. Lose yourself in 700 acres of beautiful nature reserve that have remained largely unchanged for centuries. Journey through dappled woodlands and spot butterflies, birds and carpets of wildflowers, including bluebells and purple orchids. Ideal for families and dog-walkers, the meandering path along the river will lead you to waterfalls and bridges – perfect for paddling and pooh sticks.
