Ducks swim across Strawberry Hill Pond with sunshine breaking on the banks.

Strawberry Hill was almost entirely cleared during its enclosure in the 1800s. In the time since, it has slowly been replanted and is now largely woodland again - with trees including conifers and sweet chestnuts planted by the Forest's first Superintendent.

Toward the north of the area is Strawberry Hill Pond, which offers sunshine, tranquility and pleasant views, making it a pleasant picnic spot in warmer months. 

Things to do in Strawberry Hill

If picnicking in the Forest, please take care not to litter. Please note too that barbecues are prohibited under our byelaws. Our byelaws can be enforced by fines or prosecution.
