This site takes its name from a small oak wood. This amazing woodland is important for the mosses and lichens that festoon the trees and the impressive granite boulders found on the site.

This National Nature Reserve of 170ha mainly consists of a model example of the upland heathland and has a wealth of moorland birds. Wistman’s Wood is in the Dart river valley. Natural England is asking visitors to stick to the paths and to walk around Wistmans Woods and not to go through it in order to protect the extremely rare and fragile habitat.
