Got all ready to go, found a place in the rather small and tight car park , walked with the dog the 400M up to the entrance to find the sign "no dogs allowed". Would be better if much clearer in the car park!

We went in mid August and only saw one other visitor, but plenty of wild deer, dragon flies, butterflies and a hare. Well marked one hour walk with serval benches. Worth taking a photo of the map at the entrance. Hard to find. Have attempted...More

It's a little hard to find, but this ancient woodland repays the search. A trail through the old oaks takes you to a dragonfly paradise, and each twisted oak has its own personality.

A beautiful place to walk through oak woodland and bluebells. Ideal for bird watching or simply to enjoy the natural world. Very tranquil and interesting woodland to walk through. Parking was a short level walk away.

This is well worth the visit. Parking is a short distance away and overall the walk is about 3 miles on easy terrain. Late spring day, with the sun shining through the trees; a little slice of nirvana

We often visit Captain's Wood. It's always a magical place to walk - the veteran oaks are magnificent; in April and May the wonderful bluebells carpet the ground in one area beneath lovely hazel trees. Sometimes we catch sight of the herd of Roe Deer...More

Captains wood is the perfect place for a relaxing (or not) walk. Enjoying the ancient trees, wild flowers, different habitats and when in season the fungi. This is one of Suffolks best kept secrets...
