Trosley Country Park, Meopham

4.4
#63 of 224 in Parks in Kent
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 Chalkhill Blue.

There are 3 waymarked trails – the Downland Trail is very steep in parts, while the Woodland Walk is much gentler. The Trosley Trail is an easy access route 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.

There's also the Bluebell Café where you can buy local produced food, snacks and drinks

  • Excellent cafe and toilet facilities for what is simple a country park. Have never reviewed a country park before so that in itself is worth a mention...  more »
  • Good for a walk in pretty much all conditions but can become slipy in parts when wet. Very accessible for buggies and wheelchairs so good for everyone.  more »
  • A lovely woodland park with different route options and a feeling of being completely out in the wilds. The cafe is lovely, there is a play area for kids near the cafe and - if you are so minded - exe...  more »

  • Best bacon sandwiches around and now they have removed all the lose shingle the venue is back to its excellent best.
  • Good food. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff.
  • Lots of great routes through the woods with a nice visitor centre selling refreshments. There's also a small play area next to the main car park. They have a exercise activities around the routes as well. Last time I visited they had put down a lot of stones on the main path. This has made it very buggy unfriendly!
  • Sitting atop of the Kent downs this large country park offers great views. There is car parking available and a cafe. The walks are well marked, with large flat paths or more hilly paths for the more adventurous. A popular place for dog walkers.
  • Well maintained country park that runs along part of the Pilgrims Way. Fantastic views across kent even on a partly cloudy day. Good for dog walkers and families with young children alike. Now that the paths have been widened in places, levelled and laid with a hard surface, accessible for wheel chairs, push chairs and easier to use for the mobility impaired. Good facilities including clean toilets, well stocked cafe with home made cakes, essy to park, many doggy poo bins along the walks and benches en route. I loved this place as a child and have visited it ever since.
