Of course you can, but you must always keep your dog on a lead please.
This is necessary to stop dogs running through the bluebells and disturbing the wildlife and frightening the farm livestock on the other walks.
Three 'Dog Poop' bins are situated at the entrance to the Wood, both ponds, also one at Parkwood Farm and the Car Park. We also have a bag dispenser at the entrance to the Bluebell Wood.
We understand that some dog faeces may contain the parasite Neospora caninum, which is known to cause abortion in cattle.
We have picnic facilities in the shady corner of the large car park field.
We ask that you do not picnic in the Bluebell Wood please.
Sorry the Walks are only open to walkers, and those who have accessibility difficulties, therefore needing to use wheelchairs or mobility scooters.
We are a 3 miles walk from Berwick Station.
Again a 3 mile walk from the bus stop at Wilmington.

Bus journey to Hailsham and taxis are available, their telephone 01323 442233.
The Blue Walk is the one through the Bluebell Wood that is about 1000 metres or half a mile.
It is designed for wheelchairs and easy walking and can take from half to an hour, depending on how long you linger enjoying the views and their scent when they are fully out on a sunny day!
John McCutchan MBE started it in 1972, but the idea came from his wife Carolyn! The concept of it being run by charities continues to this day, with over 67 having participated over the years. In 2013 John, Carolyn, their daughter Philippa and husband Michael Vine formed the Bluebell Walk Partnership, this we hope will ensure it continues long into the future!
Entrance charges have been increased to reflect that the Bluebell Barn has now been rated for Business Rates, plus we are now paying 20% VAT on entrance charges!
