About the reserve

This reserve consists of flower-rich meadows, ancient Cornish hedgerows and mixed woodland. Because the meadows have been largely unimproved for agricultural purposes, they provide a variety of habitats for a diverse range of wildlife. Dorset heath, a rare plant in the UK, can be seen here as well as the southern marsh orchid. Cornish hedges are stone-faced banks filled with earth and are an excellent wildlife habitat in their own right
