Great place to take the kids and dogs, lots of places to explore, highly recommended for families for a good walk. As there is no car park and the woodland is situated next to a residential estate parking can be an issue so please park your car with consideration to the local population.

Fantastic walk here today in this woodland with hubby and our dog Odin. We've lived in North Devon 30 years and never been before or heard of this place. A hidden gem, so close to town, where we will return.
Yeo Valley Community Woodland is a triumph achievement, in an increasingly divided and dysfunctional world. NorthDevonDistrictCouncil (NDDC) and Friends of YVCW have shown what can be achieved when community and council work together for the greater good. Congratulations and thanks to all who made it happen.
