Holyford Woods Local Nature Reserve is a beautiful woodland, nestled in a picturesque valley near the coastal town of Seaton in East Devon. In the spring the woodland floor is carpeted in stunning bluebells and the air is filled with the aroma of wild garlic. There is oak, ash and hazel abound at Holyford Woods Local Nature Reserve and a variety of birds nest in holes in trees, bats roost in handy crevices and tangled roots can provide the ideal nesting sites for weasels and wood mice.

A goyle, or sunken stream runs through the heart of the woodland, feeding the Stafford Brook which runs into the Axe estuary at the nearby Colyford Common Local Nature Reserve. This wood makes a lovely walk and is a fine example of Devon woodland.

To get to the Holyford Woods Local Nature Reserve, you will need to park at the Seaton Down picnic site which is opposite Seaton Tower Garage on Seaton Down Hill Road. From here, walk back to the A3052 and cross over the road carefully. You will then see a signpost marked Holyford Woods Local Nature Reserve, follow this footfath down the field and you will come across the entrance to the woods. The nearest postcode is: EX12 2TF.
