Hollow Wood nestles comfortably between two main rides and holds many welcome surprises. It is made up of two areas of woodland, dissected by its own private track which facilitates excellent access to all areas of the wood. It has an attractive kidney-shaped pond, located near to the entrance.  A second rather overgrown seasonal pond, which from a nature point of view could be dug out and fully re-established.  There is a variety of trees, mature oaks, birch and beech trees as well as some large hornbeam and sweet chestnut coppice.

Hollow Wood is surrounded by other areas of private woodland which this creates a much larger and diverse habitat for the local wildlife. Muntjac deer, hares and squirrels can be found along with over 30 species of bird.

Because the woodland is so special it has a tree preservation order on it and is protected by the local authority. This simply protects the woodland and does not prevent woodland management - free guidance is available from the Forestry Commission and other organisations.
