The Hillyfield is an award winning woodland on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park.

We manage 45acres of ancient woodland and organic pasture for environmental and community benefit. There are loads of ways to Get Involved, be that through volunteering, at workshops, or one of our open days. If you want to help then click the ‘Get Involved’ tab at the top bar above.

Our aim is to help develop a culture of wood here on Dartmoor & you are welcome to join the journey or add something of your own. This year is the last years we will be felling larch due to the disease Phytophthora Ramorum – so if you want to help fell a woodland & replant then get in touch! However our main work is going to be barn building. After a long drawn out planning battle, we now have permission to go ahead with permitted rights for building the barns we need to help support our work in this special woodland on Dartmoor.

The River Harbourne winds through this steeply wooded valley. There are two lakes and we have planted a small herb garden, tree nursery, apple orchard and productive willow osier. We look after bees, chickens and ducks, and graze the meadows with sheep and cattle.

In 2018 we won Silver at the Royal Forestry Societies ‘Excellence in Forestry Small & Farm Woodlands Award’, and in 2014 we won 2nd prize at Devon County Show for best managed mixed objective woodland. It’s what we are, a working woodland which is as much here for the trees and environment as for people. Woodlands offer SO much. We are also fortunate to have been granted support by the Forestry Commission, EWGS, DSDF, and Defra through the RDPE which has helped us on the journey.
