Wychwood Wild Garden is a beautiful woodland and garden, close to the centre
of Shipton-under-Wychwood in Oxfordshire.

Its 12.5 acres of avenues, woods and ponds much of which was laid out in the 1860's, is home to wild life and many breeds of ducks and birds. It is owned and managed by the local community and offered as a place of peace and tranquillity to local residents, guests and visitors to the area.

The Wild Garden remains open to all at the present time, in line with government guidelines.

We ask that all visitors respect the Social Distancing requirements of 2 metres from any other group. If you have children or a dog with you please keep them 2 metres away from others to discourage petting or interaction.

We are not able to carry out our normal volunteer maintenance schedule for the time being, so please take extra care when walking round the paths.
Please report any problems you encounter on 0845 8056804 so we can respond accordingly.
