Description    Bordered on all sides by mature hedge-banks, Aldercombe Wood is mostly growing spruce trees, offering the possibility of a timber harvest in the future. From its private access gate near the south-west corner, the land slopes gently down towards the northern boundary which has a small stream running along it. A narrow track runs down inside the eastern boundary. About 80% of the wood is planted with spruce. The remainder is rough grassland and it is here in this very enclosed and private area that the varied birdlife can best be enjoyed. Roe deer are regularly seen here too. The grassland area is sparsely populated with spruce and other species such as willow and hazel, whilst the hedges contain a wide variety of species. The wood is set among further areas of woodland and farmland. Despite being only a mile or so from the village of Kilkhampton, from where much of what North Cornwall has to offer is easily accessible, the wood has a very peaceful and secluded feel to it.

Boundaries   The boundaries are formed by mature hedge-banks. There is also a small stream running along the northern boundary.

Some of the photos are from 2006 and show the wood at an early stage of its development.

Covenant   There is a covenant, click here to read, on the woodland designed to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of this and adjoining woodland.
