A superb young woodland populated by truffle trees set in a National Park and within walking distance of the North Devon Coast.

The gently sloping woodland extends to about 3½ acres, plus a small meadow of about 1½  acres, making 5 acres in total. At planting in 2008 80% of the 2000 trees were inoculated with truffle spores. The trees are growing well and regular annual inspections suggest that, though the trees are yet to produce truffles, they have a good chance of doing so in the future.

Set in the most beautiful part of the Exmoor National Park, this woodland is also in the North Devon Bioshpere Reserve the two designations say much about the quality and beauty of the region. It is also just a couple of miles from the North Devon Coast, with notable places including Combe Martin, Lynton, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

Establishment was aided by an EWGS Woodland Creation Grant. Though in some areas the trees are still fledglings, in others they are up to 3 metres tall, providing a variety of environments. 

The trees are protected by professionally erected deer fencing, entry is through a deer gate, there is a water trough in the field with mains supply.

Access   Is off Heale Down Lane along a hard track and into the meadow which leads to Truffle Wood.

Boundaries   Are fully hedged and a stream runs down one side. The woodland adjoins a large area of common land, providing further areas to explore.
