What is Hill Holt Wood?

Hill Holt Wood is many things.


It is a woodland - open to the public every day.


It is a business - a social enterprise with charitable status.


It is a concept - a way of working with the local community to create a better environment, provide employment and reach out to those in need.


We are open to the public from 8am 'til dusk every day of the week. You are welcome to visit the wood at any time - and drop into the Hive Café on a Sunday for some warming tea and home-cooked food!



Hill Holt Wood operates in the community to provide a wide range of different services, from education and training to 11-19 year olds, adult education courses in the woodland, countryside and forestry management to the provision of "green space" at our other sites for those suffering from mental health issues.


The Wood Hall, a magnificent building at the heart of the woodland, is also available for hire for weddings, parties, corporate events and social functions.


Design:hhw, an innovative approach to architecture and design, also operate from our premises, as does Operation Sawdust, a youth led social enterprise recycling our waste sawdust into briquettes for log fires.


Providing a social, economic and environmental return is at the heart of everything we do at Hill Holt Wood!
