“Variety of easy walks.”

Woods Mill nature reserve
Reviewed 4 September 2018

An easy place to delight the family and it's free!
Most of the trails around this reserve have good surfaces to walk along and provide a variety of interesting habitats to observe the wildlife.
Although not essential, you will get even more out of your walk if you have binoculars.

Lovely nature reserve in West Sussex with free parking. Well laid out paths and maps. You can do a very pleasant circular walk right round the reserve. At the end a footpath goes across which allows you to extend your walk. Seats at intervals and a number of ponds and streams. Very nice.

We visited the nature reserve on a Saturday afternoon and had a peaceful walk exploring the various habitats (lake, woodland, meadows and rough pasture). The only animal life we saw were a couple of butterflies and a fieldmouse (revealed when we lifted a small metal sheet in one of the meadows).The reserve is well worth a visit and I hope to go again when they are feeding the birds by the bird hide (they don't feed them during the breeding season).

I had heard so many good things about this place so me and a friend took our kids there today. its potentially so lovely, but there isn't anyone collecting any donations from visitors and as a result they don't have the money for upkeep. All bar one of the ponds is over grown and therefore wildlife is leaving rapidly. The boys found stuff to do and we saw a bit of wildlife there, but it could be so much better. There were several areas cordoned off which was a shame too. They need to charge for parking and get a cafe there, then it'll thrive. such a peaceful place. A real shame.

Good trails and quite a bit to look at
A really good place for kids to run and let off steam
but also a nice place for us oldies to have a stroll
I would imagine it could be a bit muddy in the winter
Sort of place that is nice to lose an hour or so at any time of the year
