Trosley Country Park

Trosley Park covers 170 acres of beautiful woodland and chalk downland on the North Downs – and provides some spectacular views.

Once part of the Trosley Towers Estate, Trosley Country Park is now home to a rich variety of wildlife, and a mixture of woodland and open chalk grassland slopes.

The chalk grassland at Trosley is classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, while the grassland supports an array of butterflies every summer, including the Chalkland Blue.

There are three waymarked trails – the blue route trail leading over the downland is very steep in parts, while the red route is much gentler.  The yellow route, meanwhile, is an easy access trail suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. All provide spectacular views over the downs. There’s also an outdoor trim trail should the steep paths not prove tough enough!

At the Bluebell Café, meanwhile, you can try the local, seasonal produce. The menu includes home-made snacks, light meals and cakes, and even home-made dog biscuits for canine companions! The cafe also serves ice creams, soft drinks and fair trade tea and coffee.

For the more adventurous, the park is also a good base to visit the Coldrum Stones, and ancient listed monument of 15 sarsen stones.

PLEASE NOTE: A pay and display car park operates throughout the year, seven days a week. Charges are Monday-Friday £1.50, weekends and Bank Holidays £2.00.
