Little Acorn Wood is a rare opportunity to buy woodland in this outstandingly beautiful Hampshire countryside.

The woodland has a spectacular display of bluebells at the end of April and is carpeted with wild flowers right the way through the summer.  Primrose, violet, wood anemone, dogs mercury and bluebells all confirm this wood as a valuable wildlife habitat. The most incredible sunsets can be seen as the sun sets on the lower long stretch of the wood.

Little Acorn Wood is secluded and level, with its own grassy internal track. 

Classified as an Ancient Replanted Woodland, after harvesting of the previous trees, it was replanted twenty years ago, and these are growing vigorously. They are mainly oaks, with clusters of cherry, ash, beech, willow and chestnut. These trees would be improved from some pruning to better their 'form'.  This includes removing some of the side branches to increase the value of the oaks where unbranched straight 'butts' should attract a premium at harvest. A not-too-strenuous enjoyable activity for a woodland owner that can also produce a supply of firewood. There is a grove of older beech trees.
