Situated in the middle of the quiet Devonshire countryside, Pan Wood provides the opportunity to enjoy an almost unbridled location to relax in. There is little disturbance apart from birdsong and the occasional lowing of the cows in nearby fields.
This woodland consists of some fantastic specimen beech trees, some grand oak trees and lots of birch, hazel and sycamore trees with a strip of lovely Scots pine trees running through. The beauty of this woodland is apparent in every season and as they pass, the colour palette is a sight to behold.
Situated on a very gentle northerly slope, the northern boundary is the edge of a small year round stream. There are a few open areas that could easily be transformed into a camping or picnic spot to enjoy its melodic sound.
The fertile loamy, clay soils in the woodland support a wide range of plant life, from the wild flowers namely bluebells, wild garlic, wild campion, wood sanicle, yellow pimpernel and wood speedwell, to the ferns, wild grasses, mosses and fungi; a keen eye can spot all these and more.
The resident songbirds create a wonderful sonorous backing track as you walk under the tall trees, and a number of different animals are believed to visit the wood including roe deer, badgers, foxes and dormice. The little stream beyond the northern boundary may also be the home of water shrews and a variety of freshwater wildlife.
This woodland is a great place to spend your weekends doing a bit of wild camping and exploring - an inquisitive child’s dream! The coast is only about 30 minutes away and Exmoor National Park 18 miles to the north meaning there are plenty of things to do and places to visit in this area.
If It Were Mine
Pan Wood is in good form, there is no significant tree felling required but I would look to perhaps coppice some of the hazel, fell some of the small sycamore and ash trees to create some temporary open spaces that would hopefully encourage some wild flowers to flourish.
The quietness of the woodland would be perfect for a bit of wild camping, especially if you want to get away from it all - there are a few places ideal to pitch a tent.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
