A peaceful wood currently being 'rewilded' to the natural landscape present before the conifer plantations. Dartmoor ponies now graze the northern area of the forest and the RSPB manage the southern lowland heath land, which is one of Britain's rarest wildlife habitats, providing home for many rare birds, reptiles and butterflies. Ideal for walkers with a circular 4 mile walk in the North Forest following the orange topped posts from the Newdelight Walks or the New Car Park.
