Steam Wood is a secluded woodland nestled within Limekiln and Park Woods in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The forest is predominantly composed of mature Corsican and Scots pine, with chestnut and birch also commonly found. To the right of the main entrance, younger trees planted 10 to 15 years ago thrive. This area features a pleasant clearing with a bench, perfect for enjoying the peaceful surroundings.

The high canopy allows plenty of light to filter through, creating a mix of sunshine and dappled shade that keeps the woodland cool even on hot days.

A wide track extends from the main entrance to a spacious open area and camp base equipped with a fire pit. The forest floor is mostly flat and covered with a soft layer of pine needles, while grasses and ferns grow in other parts. Steam Wood is a serene and private space, teeming with wildlife, including frequent deer sightings.

Nearby, the popular towns of Crowborough and Tunbridge Wells are just a short drive away. For families, the Bowles Outdoor Centre offers activities, and the historic 17th-century Boars Head Inn is within easy walking distance.

The district is Wealden and the County Council is East Sussex.

Boundaries: The boundaries are open on all sides and staked with blue markings along the border with the neighbouring woodland to the south and west. The eastern boundary follows the main woodland track.

Access: There is excellent vehicle access via a byway from the main entrance via two gates. Parking is possible inside the woodland.
