Woods and Forests in Cornwall

Cornwall has many beautiful woods, many of which have trails for walking, cycling and horse riding. While most of the areas of woodland in Cornwall are not massive in area, they provide a variety of leisure and environmental activities and a diversity of tree and plant-life, both flowering plants and fungi and are home to hundreds of species of animals and birds.

Areas of ancient wildwood and modern managed woodland, plantations, mixed woodland, broad-leaved woodland, ancient woods of coppiced oak and hazel, even a cliff top forest of dwarf oak trees, all are found in Cornwall

Much of Cornwall's woodland is owned and managed by a handful of organisations including the Forestry Commission, National Trust, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, The Woodland Trust and the Duchy of Cornwall.

The woods and forests are presented by area. Some of the woods have their own detailed page - just click on the links to visit them. Detailed pages for more woodlands are being added.
