About Charlotte’s Wood

Charlotte’s Wood is a tranquil, privately owned woodland in the heart of rural East Anglia.  It is large enough to lose yourself in but not large enough to get lost in!

The woodland has a path running around the perimeter that makes it accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

Next to Charlotte’s Wood are two luxury holiday lodges and a cosy log cabin sits on the woodland edge.  The cabin is used as a venue for meetings and training and as a meeting point and shelter during woodland activities. It can also be hired as a place to stay.
