Opening and Events at Warley Place


Warley Place is open to the public every day.

The entrance is adjacent to the Thatchers Arms pub (post code CM13 3HU) and through a wooden barred gate that should be kept closed.

If driving, a small car park is at the end of the short drive. Trail Guides are available at the next gate into the reserve.

2018 Events

Spring Bulb Spectacular - Sat 24th February to Sun 15th April
(Weekends only plus Good Friday and Easter Monday)

During the months of February through to April Warley Place comes alive with a profusion of snowdrops in the woodland and daffodils and crocuses in the two meadows. At weekends during this time volunteers will be on hand to meet and greet you and answer any questions you may have about Warley Place’s habitat and history. Guided walks are also available on Saturdays mornings at 10.30am taking in the flora, fauna and history of Warley Place. A donation of £3 per person will be appreciated.

Larger parties please book in advance – contact Mick Hedges (01277 231367) or email. Alternatively ring Fiona Agassiz on 01277 230436 or email

Important Information

Please Note - Warley Place is a Nature Reserve and dogs are not allowed past the car park into the reserve itself.  There are no toilet facilities on the site.  There is limited parking space on the reserve so we would ask large groups of people attending to share cars where possible and to contact Mick Hedges (01277 231367), Fiona Agassiz (01277 230436) or John Cannell (01277 217236) to ensure their visit does not clash with another large party.
