Honeymead Wood is located towards the northwest corner of a wider and peaceful woodland in rural Devon, 18 miles south of Exmoor National Park.
The woodland has a canopy of majestic beech and oak, under which many birch and hazel are growing. The occasional tall Scots pine provide a colourful contrast to the fallen beech leaves in winter. These trees are growing on fertile loam over clay soils and the site slopes gently down to the stream that forms the northern boundary. Where light breaks through the canopy, areas of grass form more open glades which would be great locations for a picnic. Where the canopy gets a little thicker, you will find a variety of ferns, mosses and fungi along with more shade tolerant tree species such as holly and beech saplings vying for light.
In and amongst the trees and undergrowth, regular visitors include a variety of birds such as little owls, skylarks, rooks and a multitude of tuneful songbirds. The mammal population includes roe deer, badgers, foxes and dormice. Down by the stream front you may even see a small water shrew scurrying around looking for food. And on the lazy, warm summer days, you can often hear the calls of a buzzard as it soars on thermals above the woodland.
The woodland benefits from great access along a recently upgraded hard surfaced track, suitable for a 2WD car all year round, taking you from the public highway right up to the woodland and then along the whole of the southern boundary.
If It Were Mine
I would clear a track down to the stream front and cut a few of the smaller birch trees to create a nice location for the family to come and spend a lazy summer day away from the hustle and bustle of the town/city, with nothing but the sound of the wild woodland around you and maybe the kids playing near the stream for company.
