Penn Woods

Village and Woodlands

The Squirrel is lucky enough to sit on the edge of extensive ancient woodland – Penn Wood. Owned and maintained by The Woodland Trust, the woods are great for long rambles, or family adventures. For more information about Penn Wood, or details about walks and The Woodland Trust itself please click here to visit their website.

Due to The Squirrel's location close to two entrances to the woods, our customers enjoy the plentiful parking we offer, and the opportunity to amble along the wide paths, before returning to the pub for a well-deserved drink or bite to eat. One of these entrances to the wood is also located next to Holy Trinity Church, a gothic-style church which dates back to 1849 and has close links to the Penn, Curzon and Howe families. Monuments to the Penn family, the most famous of whom was William Penn, who founded Pennsylvania in the USA, and the Curzon family, who still preside over the area and remain well respected members of the community, can be found within the churchyard. On the wooden gate which leads from the churchyard to the woods the Curzon family motto can still be seen – why not see if you can find it? The Howe family financed the original building of the church, and remain closely connected with both Holy Trinity Church and the village of Penn Street.

The network of paths throughout the wood means that walkers of any ability – from the very athletic to a toddler – will find a walk to suit them, and The Squirrel’s fantastic children’s facilities along with a varied menu and excellent selection of beers provide the perfect end to a wander through the woods.

For walkers and ramblers, The Squirrel is an excellent place to begin or end your walk, or as a place to take your lunch break! We offer a ‘pre-order’ service, or of course you are welcome to order a la carte.
