Hosting a variety of majestic oak, beech and conifer species, overlooking Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast.  The Pinetum is thought to have been established between 1840 and 1860s, and features giant Wellingtonia's, Grand fir, Noble Fir, Blue Atlas Cedar, Japanese Red Cedar, Prince Albert's Yew and Coast Redwood's.  Many of the conifers that remain are now magnificent specimen trees, including one UK champion.  This site's diversity of species has earned it a Tree Preservation Order. A single path meanders through the woodland. Look out for the remains of a woodman's cottage.
