The Nearly There Trees


A group of beech trees located on a hill overlooking the A30 in Lifton, Devon. They are also known as Cookworthy Knapp and are believed to be around 140 in number. The trees were originally planted by the Lifton Park estate as game cover in the early 1900s and are now owned by the Maynard family.


The Nearly There Trees have become an iconic landmark for those travelling past them, and they have been given many names such as “Nearly There Trees”, “Nearly Home Trees”, “Cornwall Beyond”, “Grandma’s Trees”, “The Unicorn’s wood” and “Fairy Wood”.


If you’re ever travelling to Cornwall, keep an eye out for these beautiful trees!
