Description  Trony Wood is a vibrant mixed broadleaf woodland with beautiful ground flora. In the winter and early spring the open canopy allows light onto the woodland floor nurturing flowers such as dog's mercury, violets and primroses. The scent of wild mint is stirred when you brush past. There are many clearings that are ideal for camping. It has an interesting topography of nooks and crannies in which to explore and a wide variety of tree species that are ideal for forestry projects.

Areas of hazel coppice can be useful for hazel hurdle making, garden obelisks, pea sticks and walking sticks. Established trees such as ash, birch and oak could be managed for long term firewood supplies.

The woodland has good views over neighbouring fields and has a natural spring running through its centre providing a valuable water supply. There is also good potential for pond creation, the eastern part of the woodland is predominantly wet woodland: a habitat type that is becoming increasingly scarce. This type of habitat hosts a wide variety of flora and flora from birds to moths, insects and plants.

Trony Wood is named after the river Trony, located nearby on the opposite side of the access road.

Included in the sale are a play platform, swings, a storage box and composting toilet.

The nearby village of Yeoford has a station on the Exeter to Barnstaple railway which makes it possible to bring your bicycle and cycle the 3 miles to Trony Wood. Yeoford train station has a glorious history and used to be one of the largest and most thriving stations in the area due partly to a now defunct sawmill in the village.
