Mereworth Woods

5 miles (8 km)

These large woods near Sevenoaks have miles of mountain bike trails and woodland walks to enjoy. The ancient woods consist of mixed broadleaf woodland, acid heath and some conifer plantations. The woods include wide bridleways with some steep descents and nice jumps to try. There's also good footpaths for walkers with lots of wildlife to look out for.
The Wealdway long distance trail runs through the western edge of the forest so you can pick this up to extend your walk into the surrounding Kent countryside. Heading north takes you to Platt andWrotham Heath, while heading south takes you to West Peckham and the Grade II listedOxon Hoath manor house. Around here you can pick up the Greensand Way which runs to the south of the woods.
Also nearby is Oldbury Hill where there are some good bridleways for mountain bikers and the pretty Ightham Mote which has good walking trails.
