Description  Ashley Wood is an ideal woodland for family forestry, especially for those wanting to inter-plant with oaks or other broadleaves.  Set on  dry level ground and there's good year-round access. You enter Ashley Wood through a ride stop to an open area with a silver stemmed birch presiding at the centre, a perfect location where various woodland activities can be enjoyed. An attractive mix of Scots and Corsican pine are spread throughout the wood with more birch growing between them.

Open grassy areas which are ideal for camping alternate with denser groups of pine, whilst sycamore is widespread and by the roadside oaks have pride of place.
