Description   Snaffle Wood is a very fine example of a traditional Kent woodland. The hornbeam “coppice stools”, with their numerous slim tree-trunks, are mixed with many fine mature oak and a sprinkling of other trees. The wood is classified as Ancient semi-natural woodland, meaning it has been a woodland since the seventeenth century at least, and probably much longer. A feature of the wood is the ancient wood bank, with its sinewy shaped gnarled trees marking its western boundary. Coppice wood can, of course, be cut and it will grow again. This could be an ongoing resource for your own wood-burning stove.

In winter the leafless trees throughout the wood enable lots of light to reach the open, level woodland floor and warm it. Come spring, patches of bluebells emerge, together with other flowers, before the new leaves shade out the sun again. In the summer the wood is cool and shaded. A large clearing on the west side provides a good open space.

The area within which it lies is designated as Ancient semi-natural woodland, is a Kent Wildlife Site and a Special Landscape Area. The wood is close to the Rare Breeds Centre and within 6 miles of Tenterden, a great country town with a broad tree-lined high street and some nice cafes.

Access   there is road fronatage with the access to one side of the wood through a full right of way. There is ample room for parking just inside the wood.

Boundaries  are the roadside and on the other three side the track edges.

There is a covenant attached to the wood click here to read designed to ensure that all can have quiet and peaceful enjoyment of their woodland.
