Description: Small and manageable broadleaf woodlands like this rarely come to market in Herefordshire, so this is a great opportunity to secure a small woodland. This is a beautiful uneven-aged mixed broadleaf woodland on the side of Dinedor Hill with views towards Hereford.  The ground slopes gently away from the road, but there are level areas in all four lots.

Magnificent oak, ash, and beech trees are dotted around the wood, with a good canopy of mature trees, and some young natural regen.  The canopy ensures that there is very little bramble, and only the small holly interferes with the ease of walking around the wood.

From the lower parts of the wood, and from the road, there are impressive views, looking across the valley towards Hereford. A network of well established paths cross the woodland. These paths appear on the Ordnance Survey map of the wood as far back as 1888.

Access: The woodland is situated near the end of a no through road that serves a few houses further along the road.  The main entrance to Dinedor is in the centre of the wood (as marked on the plan). The current owner may be interested in upgrading the central track to provide access to the woodland that they will retain, which would benefit Lots 1, 2 and 4 as well. 

Boundaries: The external boundaries of the four lots are the adjacent roads or fences adjoining farm land as detailed below. The internal boundaries are mostly well established paths within the woodland. Small marker posts (see photograph) have been put in to help identify the lots.

Lot 1 has a private road as the western boundary, a fence line to the north, and an internal path as the eastern boundary.

Lot 2 has internal paths to the west and south east, the access track that the owner will be upgrading to the north east, and a short boundary to the north, the exact position of which is open for negotiation with the seller who will be retaining woodland to the north. .

Lot 3 has a fence line to adjoining farmland to the south west, the road to the east, and an internal path to the north west.

Lot 4 has the road to the south east,  an internal track that the owner may upgrade for access to the west, and an internal boundary separating the wood from other woodland to the north. The exact boundary is not yet marked on the ground.

Common Land:  Lots 1, 2 and 4 are part of Dinedor Common. Lot 3 is outside of the common. There will be, however, no commoners with any rights over the woodland.

Sporting rights: Included in the sale

Mineral rights: Included in the sale

Public footpaths: The paths that runs between Lots 2 and 3, and between 2 and 4 are public footpaths, and the northern end of Lot 1 has a section of public footpath around the edge.

Local area: The woodland is only three miles south of Hereford, situated near the end of a no through road. Dinedor Camp, a prehistoric hill fort, lies just a few hundred metres to the south east of the wood.

Please note, none of these woods are suitable for residential development, other uses such as summer camping may well be suitable
