Triscombe Copse is situated in serene rural Devon, a short drive south of Exmoor National Park and forms part of a larger woodland.
The copse sits among fertile loam over clay soils that slope gently north and consists largely of majestic beech and oak in the upper canopy, with occasional sweet chestnut and Scots pine in between (some of the sweet chestnut would make useful firewood, using the convenient Forestry Commission thinning licence). The beech and oak are particularly attractive with stems clad with moss, which is known to reduce soil erosion and benefit germination. Below is a vibrant mix of hazel coppice, holly, hawthorn and birch with a lush ground layer of flora, ferns and grasses; bluebell, meadow foxtail, soft rush and male fern are common species found here.
Pleasant earth bunds run along both the northeast and part of the northwest boundaries with mature oak and beech trees atop their ridges. A number of grassy locations within would make good locations for a new owner to camp over weekends. Towards the northwest corner, a small section of stream has over time wend its way within the boundary of the wood, making a useful water source for visiting wildlife. Occasional views of pastureland and beyond can also be enjoyed from here. In addition, a small watercourse briefly runs its way from the southeast corner before joining an adjacent stream.
Frequenting fauna include deer (red and roe), badger, water shrew, meadow pipit, little owl, skylark, rook and buzzard, as well as many tuneful songsters.
This delightful and very peaceful woodland benefits from good access via a hard surfaced track navigable with a 2WD car.
If It Were Mine
I would certainly strim the grassy locations, possibly also creating a discreet footpath to enhance access from the parking location. The good quantity of hazel coppice would make a useful resource for bush craft, or one could also make some rather nice walking canes!
