Overlooking the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, twenty minutes from the port of Lyme Regis and located in the beautiful area of Shute and near the medieval manor house of Shute Barton, you will find Sir William's Plantation. A peaceful spot, but with good access from the A35, the woodland is a mix of Douglas fir planted around 30 years ago along with plenty of Norway spruce and some lovely old beech banks. Access from the Kilmington end is by a track as marked on the plan below.
