Notes: From the car park at the Bolderwood Deer sanctuary, face the green in front of you and turn left onto a road, turn left and cross over the cattle grid and walk down the road. Pass Bolderwood cottage on your left and keep going until you reach the next cattle grid after approximately a quarter of a mile. Do not cross over but follow the boundary fence which is now on your right for approx 100yds and there you will see Yew 1. Turn back up the road and retrace your steps for approx 100yds (half way from the cattle grid to the cottage) and you should see Yew 2 on your right. It is quite close to the road but hidden by other trees. With your back to the road head directly into the forest until you come across a green path and follow it for a short distance (300yds max) and you will see Yew 3 on your left. Yew 4 is found SE of Bolderwood Cottage while yew 5 is just to the south of the cottage.
