Duncliffe Wood is a large (93ha) woodland which stretches over the double summits of Duncliffe Hill like a saddle as they rise out of Blackmoor Vale.

Lying 4.8km (3 miles) west of Shaftesbury, its prominent setting ensures it can be seen for miles around.  The surrounding landscape is characterised by sweeping valleys and rounded hills with a dominance of woodland on the scarp faces. The site is well known locally for its spectacular spring display of bluebells - but due to its location there are some steep paths in places.
