A mixture of semi-natural woodland and heather heathland, with more contours than are usual in the South East. The area has a network of tracks but is otherwise nearly pathless. Earth banks provide line features in some places. Heavy grazing by wild deer helps keep down the woodland ground vegetation whilst Exmoor ponies do a good job of thinning out the heather!
