Moorhaven Woodlands

The Woodlands at Moorhaven Village is a two acre wood operated under a conservation trust scheme. It is located at the edge of the village on the North-West side (grid reference SX 664 577).

Running through the woodlands is the Ludbrook, a typical moorland stream, which rises about a mile to the north in the valley between the Ugborough Beacon and the Western Beacon, about 500 feet above the woodlands. In contrast to the bare landscape of the moor, the woodlands is covered in lush vegetation and has a wide variety of mature broad-leafed trees, including sycamore beech and ash. There is a complex network of footpaths on either side of the Ludbrook and through the steep banks on the western side. The stream is crossed by a ford, two timber footbridges and a traditional Dartmoor slab bridge.

By the side of the stream is an open timber pavilion, built in the Japanese style, with picnic and barbeque facilities. A little way upstream the Ludbrook divides to form a tiny island which also has picnic and barbeque facilities. Further up the bank, a path leads to a childrens camp, complete with a wigwam and a tree house. Reserved access to the woodlands ensures that it is a tranquil place at all times, and the ideal spot to relax and unwind.
