Great Bean Wood lies within the Blackdown Hills - a group of hills lying on the border between Devon and Somerset. The Blackdown Hills were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1991 for their ancient landscape features and special habitats. Many special species of animal and plant can be found here.

Great Bean Wood has a fine mixture of broadleaved trees including some wonderful mature Oaks, Holly, Hazel and Silver birch, with a covering of bluebells on the ground. Deer and woodpeckers frequent the wood and sporting rights are included. The woodland is next to the A303 so is easy to get to for occasional family camping.

The Wood is named after one of the two lime kilns that were active nearby - "Great Bean Hay" and "Little Bean Hay". Great Bean Wood is between the villages of Bishopswood and Yarcombe each with a pub and local accommodation. The nearest small towns are Chard (5 miles) and Honiton (7 miles). The south coast beaches and Jurassic coast resorts of Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer or Sidmouth are each a short drive away.
