Directions / Parking
The main car park is likely to fill quickly but there is an overflow car park opposite the entrance gate.
Charges: £3 all day or £1 per hour; pay at the meters. Free to National Trust card holders.
Cater from beginners through to a good club standard. We call the courses Hare, Squirrel, Badger and Fox and these offer a clear progression in the difficulty level. Fox course incorporates adult training exercises.
£1 per head for everyone (whether a member or not).
You need to join a recognised orienteering club once you have participated at three or more events. This is a requirement of our insurers. Read about joining QO here.
Registration & Start Times
Courses open at 2pm and close at 3pm. Please try to arrive before 2.30pm for your run.
Wood and wild gardens with good path network and variety of point features, surrounded by open fields and further woods. There are plenty of streams and fences but there is usually very little need to cross these. There is a central valley with quite steep slopes on either side.
There is a cafe in the courtyard which should be open until about 16.00. We have warned them to expect a few more customers.
There are toilets too.
