Hawkswood: Is a 4 hectares lie on a steep north facing slope. The area is a mosaic of heath and grassland with areas of naturally-regenerating birch scrub. There are also small plantations of beech, and part of the reserve is bounded by a mixed rhododendron hedge providing a spectacular display of colour in late May or early June. There is free access across the reserve, although the area downslope from the track can be wet and the terrain difficult. Allow 45 minutes to walk around the site.

How to get here

Car

Approaching from the west, turn off the A30 to Honiton. Drive into the centre of the town, and take the right turn signposted to the railway station. Drive on up the hill past the station, turning left at the first mini-roundabout, and then first right. Follow this road past Honiton Golf Club, and after approximately 2 miles (3km) turn left towards Slade and Widworthy. A track leading onto the reserve lies on the left approximately 150m beyond Townshayne Farm. DWT and its visitors have right of access along this track although it is marked private. Park carefully here and walk 400m along the track - the reserve lies on either side with a gate on the left a little further along.
