Curl Wood is a lovely, light and spacious wood. Scots pine and birch are dominant but also spruce, larch, hornbeam, chestnut and some oak can be found. The floor is easily navigable on the most part with long grasses and bracken.

There are numerous wide clearings throughout the wood making a perfect setting for family camping and woodland activities.

There are two separate entrances from the road to access Curl Wood. The main entrance through the double wooden gates on the south-east corner, provides vehicle access via a hard stoned track to the main gate. The owner will be able to park inside the wood itself via an excellent hard gravelled track, easily accessed all year round by any road vehicle. The internal track is also wide enough should the owner wish to park a touring vehicle or caravan.

There is a second entrance through a single metal gate on the south-west corner. A track accessible only on foot provides a right of way along the north boundary. The south side of the wood is fenced along the entire length of the road.

Curl Wood is situated in an excellent area being only four miles from the popular town of Tunbridge Wells. 

RSPB Broadwater Nature Reserve is situated opposite the main entrance to Curl Wood – and you are likely to hear and possibly see some of the following birds: Goldcrest, Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Green Woodpecker and Marsh Tit. Summer migrants spotted in the reserve include: Blackcap, Whitethroat, Nightjar and Yellow Hammer, amongst others.

District is Wealden and the County Council is East Sussex.

Boundaries are securely fenced on all sides. Planning permission is in place for three years starting from 31.01.24 to renew the full original roadside wire fence with a grid wire at 1.6 metres tall.
