#2 of 7 in Nature in Buckinghamshire
Wendover Woods is an area of woodland on the north edge of the Chiltern Hills in England. Named after the nearby town of Wendover, the woods are part of the Public Forest Estate and are managed by Forestry England.

Covering 325 ha (800 acres), the woods are a mixture of coniferous and broad-leaved trees. There are several signed walks for recreation, as well as bridleways, picnic and barbecue areas and a children's playground. A Go Ape treetop adventure course opened in 2008.

There are views of the countryside in the Aylesbury Vale to the north, and a stone monument marking the highest point of the Chilterns which lies within the woods on Haddington Hill.

The Aston Hill Mountain Bike Area is at the edge of the woods.

  • Its changed a lot recently and have improved the facilities a great deal. Maybe slightly lost a bit of charm as it's much more commercial. Thankfully, its takes seconds of walking to immerse yourself into the beautiful untouched woodland and away from crowds where all the charm returns. I still love it up here and will continue to visit until I'm old and grey.
  • Great place to take the children to have a walk and do one of the trails. Go Ape looks great fun and the cafe does some really nice food.
