The reserve forms part of the Upper Wye Gorge SSSI, designated in 1989. The canopy is dominated by a mix of ash/beech/oak, with an understorey containing frequent hazels, as well as field maple, spurge laurel, hawthorn, spindle, guelder rose, whitebeam and yew. Lords Wood has a track leading down to King Arthur's Cave. The caves themselves are not part of the reserve. Access is straightforward, and the main track leads on beyond the reserve to link with both the Wye Valley Walk and other footpaths within Lord's Wood.
