Marsland

UK»England»Devon»Marsland

Marsland is a very large reserve on the northern border of Devon and Cornwall. Extending several kilometres inland from a dramatic coastline, this inspiring site offers something for everyone. It is an exceptionally diverse nature reserve consisting largely of a wooded, steep-sided valley, along with coastal heath and grassland, meadows, woodland glades, bracken-covered slopes and small streams and ponds. At certain times of year it is rich in wild flowers and the woodlands are alive with birds. In the Marsland valley several footpaths lead through the reserve. From the parking area go through the gate and either turn left towards the coast or right to go down into the valley. Either route becomes a circular walk and there is a further footpath up the valley to Gooseham Mill and beyond.
