Russet Wood is a delightfully private woodland found in the middle of the Devon countryside, but easily accessible from South Molton which is only 10 miles away. Tiverton and the M5 are approximately 15-20 minutes to the east. Access to the woodland is along a stoned track across some agricultural fields via a few metal field gates between the roadside entrance and the woodland boundary, meaning the area is largely undisturbed, aside from fellow woodland owners.
Surrounded on all sides by agricultural fields, there is no road noise and the only intrusion to the peace found here is the wildlife around you and the distant mooing of cows in the fields. The woodland comprises ancient beech and oak, with some majestic and mature specimens growing throughout. In more recent years, a mixture of young oak, silver birch, hazel, sycamore and willow have grown up and around the big trees creating a diverse woodland.
Wildflowers are abundant, bluebells, wild garlic, wild campion, wood sanicle, yellow pimpernel and wood speedwell have all been identified throughout Russet Wood. An assortment of ferns, mosses and wild grasses can also be found.
This is a wonderfully quiet part of the Devon countryside, an unspoiled parcel of woodland and is a delightful place to relax in, perhaps wild camping on the flat ground or do a bit of bird watching.
If It Were Mine
I would clear a path through to the southern boundary and make a little camping area to pitch a tent under the majestic beech trees, using the earth bank as a natural shelter from any wind.
Some of the denser parts of woodland could do with being thinned out slightly, doing so will give more space to the remaining trees (and produce a nice amount of firewood at the same time).
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
