Honiton Bottom Community Nature Reserve
Honiton Bottom Community Nature Reserve

Honiton Bottom Community Nature Reserve is about a mile from the bustling centre of the market town of Honiton. Situated at the southernmost tip of the town, this site offers close up views of some common but none the less enthralling species of wildlife.

The stream which runs along the eastern edge of the nature reserve is called the Gissage, and here you may see Dippers, Grey Wagtails and even a Kingfisher if you're lucky!

Small birds feed on the insects and seeds which thrive in the rough grassland. Tawny Owls hunt regularly over the nature reserve at dusk and in the early morning, Foxes are also frequent night time visitors.

The reserve has a surfaced path, allowing access for those with limited mobility, and buggies.


Honiton Bottom Nature Reserve is about a mile from the town centre, at the junction between Honiton Bottom Road and Battishorne Way.
