Wilderness Wood and its cafe is open Wednesdays to Sundays 9am-5pm for members of the public and everyday in the East Sussex school holidays.


We ask visitors who would like to walk, picnic or play in the wider woodland to pay £3.00 per person or £10.00 for a family in the cafe.   This helps us cover the costs of being open to the public – path maintenance, fencing, signage, wind-blow clearance, play equipment and insurance.  We also ask you to abide by our  Code of Conduct.





If you come regularly to the woods or would like to be more involved, you can become members of the wood.  The information and form is available to down-load here or as hard-copy from the cafe.  Contact emilyanddan@wildernesswood.org if you have questions or would like to apply.
