About West Stow Country Park

Surrounding the West Stow Anglo Saxon Village and with 125 acres of unspoilt countryside, trails, heath and woodland walks, there is plenty to explore at West Stow Country Park. 

For wildlife enthusiasts there are two bird hides and a bird feeding area as well as a lake and the River Lark with all the life that this attracts. 

Perfect for picnics on sunny days or energetic winter walks and with an adventure playground for children, this is an ideal family destination.

Families can also enjoy the Beowulf and Grendell Adventure Trail.

Open:
Daily 9am to 5pm in winter (during December and January, the park may close at dusk)
Daily 9am to 8pm in summer

Cost:
The park is free to enjoy (you will need to pay for parking if you need it)

Dogs

Please note that between 1 March and 31 July, all dogs must be kept on a lead throughout the country park to protect ground nesting birds. Please be aware that dogs are not allowed in the Anglo-Saxon Village, Museum or Visitor Centre, with the exception of assistance dogs, due to the presence of livestock and the archaeological nature of the site.
