Whilst out running an errand in the February Half Term we planned to stop en-route for a walk, this is when we discovered Wildmoor Heath Nature Reserve in Crowthorne, which is jointly owned by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust and Bracknell Forest.
There is a car park (postcode: GU47 8PD) which was free of charge and it also had two picnic benches next to the car park.
The nature reserve is a large 99 hectare lowland heath site which has a rich habitat for wildlife, including several rare species of birds - dogs must stick to paths and be kept on a lead during the nesting season. The site is of scientific interest and many species have been found on the site including ragged robins, bullficnches and stag beetles.
On the map below you can see all the different footpaths you can take. We went up the hill from the car park, turned right and looped back on ourselves to the car park, it was about a 25 minute walk, predominantly through woodland. The paths were nice and clear, apart from some tree routes but we are glad we took the littlest in a carrier. We love woodland adventures so it was great for an explore.
It is also worth mentioning there are some electricity pylons at this site which you walk near and can hear working.
