 Woodland Walks

From Queenswood car park you can follow a signposted route along easy Forestry roads, on the re-surfaced Daffodil Way and then, via kissing gates (the stiles have all been removed), to enjoy the hedgerow and meadow daffodils, rejoining the village road at Kempley Green and on to the village hall for tea and cake ..... all at your own pace a leisurely 20-40 mins stroll suitable for all the family. Walk back to Queenswood or take the free Daff'n'Ride bus.

Walking Maps of the Daffodil Way and walks in Queenswood will be available for sale from the village hall and St Mary's Church.

We look forward to welcoming you to our guided walks to view the daffodils; all walks start from the lay-by near Kempley Village Hall, where you can buy refreshments. Parking is available at owners' risk.
