This large area of woodland sits in a deep coastal valley and is not immediately obvious unless you visit nearby headlands or high ground. The sheltered valley and hidden location do however help create a wonderful setting of woodland around a lush meadow where the sounds of the overhead sea breezes bird song and the running stream water create an idyllic and historic atmosphere akin to 'stepping back in time'. Four previously separate woods make up this area. It is home to an array of wildlife including otters and bats.
