Hidden woodlands at Harewoods and Sandhills


Hidden woodlands, lush green meadows, tranquil ponds and an ancient common

The Harewoods estate was created over a number of years by the Victorian London stockbroker, Alfred Howard Lloyd, and forms a large part of the countryside in and around the picturesque village of Outwood - take a look at the Outwood village website to find out more.

Harewoods is lovely countryside to explore on foot, and fairly flat too. The many footpaths and bridleways take you across working farmland, meadows, an ancient common and woodland.

In the spring, the woods are filled with colourful wild flowers, with spectacular displays of primroses, wood anemones and bluebells in Hornecourt Wood. Over 100 ponds can be found, ranging from large open ponds to marshes, where keen bird-watchers may spot snipe and woodcock.

Outwood Common was used by commoners for grazing and timber up until the mid 1800s and many ancient oak trees can still be seen today.
