I love Bradfield woods in the Autumn. Take a pair of Wellies though as it isn't very muddy. As I have 2 Yong children we opted for the black arrow trail which is only a mile and half long. Kids love exploring and because it's free it's a great way to get them into nature. The fungi picture opportunities are... More

There's not a large amount of ancient woodland in Suffolk but Bradfield woods is great example of what we're missing. The size of the woods might not be massive but the walks are well worked so that the space is maximized. As has been mentioned in previous reviews spring for the bluebells and autumn for the fungi are especially good... More

Bradfield woods is always a lovely place to visit whatever the season. I particularly like visiting when the bluebells are on show. It is great to see how an ancient wood is managed and the traditional skills maintained. The visitor centre which has a cafe is seasonal - nothing exotic - and a cup of tea is always well received...

No whistles and bells, just an entrance with one or two information boards and a small car park. Wide woodland walks through a variety of mainly coppiced trees, and a helpful map. Quiet and peaceful now that we are just coming up to the main season for fungi - one or two unusual examples already (Sept 29th). Please resist the... More

Lovely place for a wander on a dry day! Visitors centre and cafe on site with lots of information available about its history and what lives and grows there throughout the year. Dogs are allowed but on leads. If you like nature, its worth a visit.

Lovely old fashioned woodland managed in the old fashioned way but with chain saws. Lots of walks with typical proper woodland flowers on display. Coppiced and other managed woodland - free to get in. Dog must be on a lead.

My earliest memories of visiting woods are bluebell time go back some 50 years but the delight at seeing this carpet of blue has never left me. Although this is the first time I have visited this wood, the canvas was not disappointing. Free off road parking and various signed walks are available. Dogs welcome on leads.

I worked in Bradfield Woods , winter coppicing for materials for the rake factory at Whelnetham from 1958-1970. During the summer months I worked at the factory. It is a lovely place to just walk and enjoy wildlife.

The woods are quite beautiful - it can be muddy under foot, but it's a lovely place for a walk with a few different routes depending on the distance you want to travel! We always do a bit of a perimeter walk which can take just over an hour.
