After 1.2 miles (1.9 km), turn right down Park Corner Lane and at the end of Park Corner Lane turn right along Broadwater Forest Lane. After 0.2 miles (0.3 km) on the right there is a gate into the reserve.
The Arriva service 228/229 between Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough and the Brighton and Hove service 28/29/29A/29B between Tunbridge Wells and Brighton both stop on the A26 close to the reserve.

Information for dog owners
Dogs are welcome on the paths around the nature reserve. Please keep to the designated paths only.
Please keep your dog on a lead and under close, effective control at all times, due to the sensitive wildlife, habitats and livestock here.
We know that the countryside is a dog walking paradise. It’s important to remember the special surroundings here are wonderful havens for rare wildlife. Even if dogs are very well behaved, wildlife and livestock can easily become startled by a loose dog they perceive as a predator.
Scaring-off wildlife does more than simply causing it to move away; it uses up their energy, decreasing their chance of survival regardless of season.
Thank you for protecting the special wildlife here by keeping your dog on a lead and under close, effective control.
- Please be aware that ponies and goats graze on parts of this site. They’re here to do an important job - creating the ideal habitat conditions for some of the special species to live in. The ponies and goats are largely placid, but please keep a respectful distance from them.
- Dogs die in hot cars, please do not leave your dog in the car when visiting us.
- Please pick up after you dog and use the dog waste bins that are provide.
