Peace Wood is part of a larger woodland situated in peaceful rural Devon, a short drive south of Exmoor National Park.
Located on gentle slopes on loam over clay soils, the woodland principally consists of majestic moss-covered oak standards with occasional sweet chestnut forming the upper canopy. The eastern boundary is flanked by a line of mature beech, attractively standing on top of a large earth bund. Below, there is a vibrant shrub layer of hazel coppice, holly and hawthorn. The ground layer is lush with grasses, ferns and flora including bluebell, honeysuckle, male fern, soft rush and meadow foxtail. A number of small grassy open areas would make tranquil overnighting locations.
Towards the northeast of the wood, a quaint natural watercourse meanders its way north, with signs of it being enjoyed as a drinking spot by the abundant visiting roe deer populations. Other wildlife include badger, water shrew, little owl, skylark, rook and buzzard. A multitude of tuneful songbird species also frequent throughout.
Both eastern and southern boundaries (the latter also enjoying lovely far reaching farmland views) are bunded, adding to the sense of privacy of the wood. Peace Wood is accessed towards the end of a good hard track navigable with a 2WD car.
If It Were Mine
I would certainly take advantage of the existing Forestry Commission thinning licence and yield some firewood though a light thinning. I would also consider strimming and clearing one of the grassy areas towards the southern boundary, soaking up the views on summer evenings.
