About the reserve

This reserve boasts an extensive area of mixed woodland with ancient oak and hazel coppice, as well as river and wetland belts. It provides a suitable habitat for the dormouse and the greater horseshoe bat. The rare blue ground beetle occurs here and only a few other locations around Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.
