IS STANTON WATERS WOODLAND WALKS ONE BIG AREA?
Yes, Stanton Waters Woodland Walks is one large woodland, with a green open space that runs through the heart of the woods. When you arrive the main gate to the drive way will be secured but not locked, then after a short drive you will reach the car park which will be secured and latched, the coded padlock should have been opened by the Stanton Waters Woodland Walks team for you. All gates must be re-latched and secured after use of the facility.
HOW BIG IS STANTON WATERS WOODLAND WALKS?
The Stanton Waters Woodland Walks site is approximately 2.2 acres - however the fencing has been erected within this and also includes the hard-standing carpark area so the internal walking area is slightly smaller than the site as a whole.
HOW DO I FIND YOU / IS STANTON WATERS WOODLAND WALKS SIGNPOSTED?
Unfortunately there are no road signs however you follow the B4019, Blunsdon to Highworth or Highworth to Blunsdon and you should see our entrance sign which leads you to the main/entrance gate. We are opposite staplers farm (directly opposite the duck & chicken eggs sign). Once passed through and the gate is re-secured you will be on an off-road driveway/track. If you then follow the driveway/track (Max 10MPH) the enclosure entrance is very visible. There will be another Stanton Waters Woodland Walks sign on the enclosure gate.
Post code: - SN67RY
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE GATE CODE?
The gate should usually be unpadlocked before your arrival by the Stanton Waters Woodland Walks team for your convenience, but latched shut. However should this not be the case for any reason you will always be emailed the security code prior to arriving at Stanton Waters Woodland Walks. Please note the gate code can/will occasionally be changed to maintain security of the site. If for whatever reason you have arrived and the gate is padlocked and your have not received the code, please contact the team via email or phone call (phone calls between the hours of 8:30am-6:30pm only please) with your name and booking reference.
WHAT IS SURROUNDING THE WOODLAND?
The woodland is surrounded by privately owned fields. Occasionally there are horses in the surrounding fields next to us but these are not directly against the fence line so only visible to the dogs at a distance.
On the other side, the field(s) adjacent to the woods are farm land for crops. On rare occasion(s) there is activity in the neighbouring fields such as working with tractors, chainsaws, shooting and the hunt which can be heard/sometimes seen from the woodland.
