I have already shared one blog post this year detailing a day trip to Wismans Wood on Dartmoor that was one adventure found from this amazing book Dartmoor 365 by John Hayward.
One of my 2018 Goals was to enjoy the area I live in, spend more time exploring , be outside, having fun and being fit. This book is giving me lots of suggestions which I decided to share to help others enjoy them too.
This trip was to Lady’s Wood found using the postcode TQ10 9JE if you are using google maps or a sat nav.
It was easy for me to get to, there’s not much parking as you can see from my photo before but a small space to accommodate a few cars just off the side of the road. To be honest we might have passed it had we not noticed the giant toadstool and frog on the opposite side of the road that someone had told me about previously.
From the road there are no signs to say you are there (well done that I could see) so hopefully this landmark helps you too.
Once parked up and wellie boots on we walked along a small path with the river to our right , under a viaduct until we seen the sign to enter.
you can find out more about the place from the Devon Wildlife Trust , you will see their sign above when you are at the entrance. It was a fairly short walk in a loop but it’s pretty and quiet apart from the lovely bird song.
Today we seen large amounts of wild garlic , lesser celandine and pink wood anemone, but in another month or so it should be filled with Bluebells.
The children enjoyed spotting the nesting boxes for the doormouse. Easy walking even with the rain and lots of mud.
This Walk is not a whole day out so would be perfect to add onto another visit or just to take an hour out in nature. A hidden (until now) gem right of the Edge of Dartmoor.
Do share your adventure here if you visit.
