Bentley Wood is a secluded mixed broadleaf woodland situated in the North Wessex Downs AONB

At just under 4 acres Bentley Wood is a very manageable size, perfect for those considering owning their own woodland.

Impressive beech trees dominate but oak, ash, holly and hazel are also present. Wide open glades throughout allow light to pour into the site creating a spacious and calming space. A small camp area with a fire pit is in place making it ideal for woodland activities.

The sunny open areas attract numerous species of bird life and insects to the wood. Roe, fallow and muntjac deer and woodland hare are also common visitors, all seen on our short visit recently. The planting of birch and oak at an early stage is already underway and will help to create diversity within the wood in years to come. This is an important environment and as such carries a local authority Tree Preservation Order (TPO). The TPO is there to ensure the protection of the wider woodland. 

Bentley Wood is a peaceful and private space far from any roads. The small village of Enham and local shop and also The Oak pub at Smannell are both within walking distance. The bustling town of Andover is just a five-minute drive with easy access to the A303.

Ward is Burghclere, Highclere and St Mary Bourne and the County Council is Hampshire

Boundaries: The boundary is open on all sides and follows the main woodland track to the north and east and a byway to the south. 

Access: There is excellent vehicle access all year round via a hard track and shared locked gate. Parking is also possible inside the woodland itself.
