This prominent Ancient Semi Natural Woodland (ASNW) is conspicuous from much of the local area being situated at the southern end of the Wray Valley on the south east side of Dartmoor National Park. The wood has a west facing aspect descending from a small plateau downhill towards the Wray Brook and the River Bovey and is typical of the Dartmoor National Character Area (NCA150/NE519).
