How can I visit?
We welcome visitors in the following ways:
- Walk, run or ride on our extensive rights-of-way network, including footpaths, bridleways and permissive paths
- Enjoy Jubilee Community Wood at Watton-at-Stone
- Attend one of our organised events
- Arrange a private tour with us
- Arrange a corporate day with us
- Arrange a meeting with us to discuss your requirements for event hosting, filming or photography
Please note that the estate is not generally open to the public and footpath-users must remain on the designated public rights-of-way. This is essential for the estate to function and perform our demanding conservation, farming and forestry operations. We are a busy working estate and can only accept visitors at our Estate Office by prior appointment.
We are well placed to reach from across the region, with easy access from central London, major airports and several train stations. Watton-at-Stone train station is on the estate and connects London, Hertford and Stevenage.
There is no public car park on the estate, however parking can be found in the villages on, or surrounding, the estate. There is also parking in Hertford, from which there are buses to the park’s Hertford Lodge Entrance on the A119. A public footpath starts at this point and traverses the park. Bus stops on routes from Hertford and Stevenage are also in Stapleford and Watton-at-Stone, from where you can access our network of public footpaths and bridleways.
Visitors for organised events and appointments should come to the Estate Office in Woodhall Park, SG14 3NE, unless otherwise advised.
Please note that anyone visiting the Woodhall Estate does so entirely at their own risk.
