Two large areas of public woodland surround the village, namely Ham Street Woods and Orlestone Forest, Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs). Both are remnants of the ancient forest that once covered the whole of the Weald of Kent. The Royal Military Canal, the UK's third longest defensive structure, passes by ½ mile to the south. Three long distance footpaths also run through the parish:
The Saxon Shore Way
Greensand Way (which begins at the main crossroads and runs for 110 miles (177 km) to Haslemere, Surrey)
The Royal Military Canal Path
The area is also popular with cyclists, as Romney Marsh to the south is completely flat.
