Lustleigh is a magnificent area for weirdly shaped outcrops and loaf like boulders that are set on the steep slopes above the heart of the village most of which are difficult to espy as they are cloaked in a canopy of trees. Yet there are some rocks, particularly along the narrow road between the village centre and hamlet of Ellimore, that are partially visible from the wayside and form part of the breathtaking scenery that this picturesque settlement has to offer.
In the private grounds of Copperwood some huge and striking boulders can be seen from the gate beside the lane seemingly part of a rocky ridge that runs parallel with the road but at some distance from it. The Rocks are very impressive even from a distance but one can only appreciate the true scale when a vehicle is parked up at the front, as the photograph below portrays. The exposed granite here no doubt tumbled down the steep hillside behind to rest in this spot and is indicative of grander rocks in the trees above.
The visible lower part of Copperwood Rocks presents as two massive stacked and cube shaped boulders perched at the foot of a massive hill and were first noted as significant by Tim Jenkinson in September 2014. Along with the neighbouring rock clusters at Pethybridge, Ide House, Brake, Rockholt and Higher Truckel they are among some of the finest rocks in Lustleigh, spread across the wooded slopes that are secreted above the village.
