Dickson's Copse comprises predominantly oak high forest, thought to have developed from old hazel coppice-with-standards woodland. It supports at least 28 ancient woodland indicator species (those normally associated with woodlands more than 400 years old). The reserve is about a mile north of Newport, and three miles south of Cowes along the cycleway. There is no vehicular access although there is some parking at the riverside picnic site on the northern edge of Newport.
