Located within a peaceful wider Ancient Woodland, Tumblers lies 7 miles east of Royal Tunbridge Wells in rural Kent. Accessible in roughly an hour and a half from London, this woodland is an excellent place to get away from it all and have some family woodland adventures.
Situated on predominantly level fertile loamy clay soils, the canopy mainly consists of majestic oak standards (many of the stems are of an outstanding quality) and tall, sweet chestnut coppice. The shrub layer underneath comprises birch, occasional holly, hornbeam, hazel coppice, and sycamore. Some of the sweet chestnut stems could be selected for wood fuel as well as post and rail fencing. Patches of bluebell, primrose, fern, bracken and blackberry embellish the ground layer, looking particularly delightful during spring and summer.
Towards the southeast of the wood is a gentle seasonal stream. Far reaching rural views can also be enjoyed looking out from both the northeast and southeast boundaries. In addition, there are several open areas that would make good spots for woodcraft and occasional camping.
A variety of feathered visitors such as greenfinch, treecreeper, woodpecker, long eared owl and numerous acoustic songsters enjoy the serenity of this area. Woodland mammals including muntjac, roe and fallow deer, yellow-necked mouse, badger and fox have all been sighted.
Tumblers benefits from vehicular access along an unsurfaced track suitable for a light 4WD vehicle all year round and a 2WD car in drier months. This woodland represents an ideal sanctuary for an enthusiastic woodsman.
If It Were Mine
Tumblers would be ideal for a keen woodsman to craft a stock of fencing posts as well as some pale fencing. Firewood for the hearth – most definitely! There are lots of places for the children to build dens and investigate the stream followed by occasional camping under the stars after a day’s adventures.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
