Hornshaynes Wood is set in a fantastic wooded area that, despite it's easy access a few miles from Honiton and Sidmouth, is a peaceful haven with only the sounds of nature to break the silence. The wood is a mix of conifer such as spruce and western red cedar alongside some mixed broadleaves such as birch and rowan, giving a different feel once in the wood.

Other features includes a traditional Devon hedge bank lined with established birch and holly trees and forestry tracks leading into different areas of the wood.

A variety of wildlife can be found within the wood. Many different types of fungus are found in the autumn months. Due to the variety of habitat areas within the wood, from clearings to the conifer trees, to wet wooded areas, many different flora species are found in the spring and summer including wood sorrel, known in folklore as 'sleeping beauty' and the 'white goddess'. Fallow deer can nearly always be observed in the woodland and the open meadow that adjoins it. Indeed there are stunningly beautiful views of the local area from the edge of Hornshaynes Wood.

The market town of Honiton is just a ten-minute drive providing a good range of shops and a train station.
