Dene Wood is about 3 miles north of Lyme Regis and its historic Cobb, Harbour and the Jurassic coastline. It’s an ideal location that provides the option to unwind within nature or explore the abundant attractions within the area.
The woodland consists of predominantly mature trees and varieties include oak, hornbeam, ash, hazel and spruce. In 2011, the owner planted 140 saplings of mixed varieties using a grant provided by the International Tree Foundation. An article was later written on Dene Wood as an example of recreational woodland management and featured in their annual journal of 2011. The majority of the mature trees exceed 50 years of age and several old oaks are in excess of 100 years, Dene Wood is part of a much more extensive woodland and offers a sense of nature that is hard to match.
Wildlife that has been seen in the woodland includes deer, badgers, foxes and even an otter has been seen in the stream that runs along the lower border of the woodland. There is also a healthy population of birds that include tawny owls and woodpeckers.
There are several areas within the woodland that can be used for camping and there is also a 15 x 20 ft wooden shelter that can provide cover if the weather plays up. A compost toilet makes the woodland more family friendly for those that don’t want to rough it too much.  

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