Bovey Valley Woods is made up of Pullabrook, Hisley and Houndtor Woods, providing one of the most extensive areas of accessible woodlands on the East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve. Bovey Valley was once a mosaic of woodland and small medieval farmsteads. Today it is home to breathtaking ancient woodland, the sheltered River Bovey and wild open moorland. Conifer trees were planted in some areas in the 1960s; a process now being slowly reversed by the Woodland Trust to re-establish flourishing native woodland.
