The car park is small and fills up on good weather days, so public transport is probably a better option.
Bus 433 stops close by, running between central Croydon (stopping at East Croydon) and New Addington . It leaves Fairfield Halls (stop KC, outside Nestle / Gas Board buildings) at 10.00, 10.15, 10.30 and 10.45 and takes, allegedly, 21 minutes. So best catch the 10.30 bus or earlier.
Get off at the Dove Close stop on Sandpiper Road, and walk 100 yards or so down Old Farleigh Road to the entrance to the Woods.
There is also a bus 409 that runs about once an hour between Selsdon and East Grinstead – I’ll let you work out if it’s any use, the timetable is here.
Yes, a lunch/snack stop at The Harrow is on the cards.
