A really delightful woodland and only available as the owners are moving to the West County. Walking round the wood you can't escape the magic; whether it's the hazel or the oaks, the log stacks or the 'round' or the rustic shelter.

In spring the floor is awash with the colour of bluebells; wood anemone - the wind flower - shows bright white in spring.

This is an ancient woodland and is designated as a County Wildlife Site, CLICK HERE to see the details and map, this is a reflection of its value for wildlife. A TPO covers this and neighbouring woods but it does not affect normal woodland management where a management plan agreed with the Forestry Commission is in place.

Lots of good quality oak, hazel coppice, hornbeam, birch and wild service tree. The firewood is included although, if it were mine I don't think I could bring myself to burn it, the kindling set in their frames are a thing of real beauty and shelter a myriad of creepy crawlies. Flowing water in the two streams in most winters are a feature most children just can't resist.

Access: is directly off the small lane, an internal track leads into the wood.

Boundaries: there are free standing posts on the north and south sides, to the west there is a bank topped with overgrown hornbeam coppice/hedge. There is the lane to the east.

Ordnance survey have really useful maps, see their free maps here.
