Blackbury Wood is a set in a wonderfully peaceful location next to the picturesque village of Harcombe. The woodland forms part of Harcombe Hill surrounded by rolling hills that make up part of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The popular coastal towns of Sidmouth, Branscombe and Beer are just a short drive away.  

The woodland itself is a very manageable size and young beech, birch and holly make up much of the top section that slopes down to a central woodland track. Beyond this point, footpaths lead towards a pretty stream that runs along the edge of the field to the west.

The woodland opens up with lots of light along the stream and mature beech and oak border the field along with hazel, birch and ash. Bracken and grasses cover much of the floor. There are some lovely clearings that could be used for camping and other activities. 

The ward is Sidmouth Rural and the County Council is East Devon

Boundaries are marked in blue on all sides. The main track follows the eastern boundary and the top of the wood and to the west runs a stream and open fields. 

Access There is excellent vehicle access and parking is possible at the top of the wood on the track. The owner would have right of way on the hard tracks marked in green on the map.
