Finemere Wood is a 45.7 hectare biological Site of Special Scientific Interest near Quainton in Buckinghamshire. It is managed by the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust and the planning authorities are Aylesbury Vale District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council.


The wood was formerly part of Bernwood Forest, a medieval royal hunting forest. Most of the site is ancient pedunculate oak forest, which has butterflies including the rare wood white and black hairstreak. There is also an area of rough grassland and scrub which is crossed by the River Ray.

The site is open at all times and there is access from the road between Quainton and Edgcott.
