Boasley Wood, Devon - 3.25 acres, £35,000

Boasley Wood

Set on land which slopes very gently from north to south, protected by tall hedge-banks on three sides and reached via well-made, hard-surfaced tracks which make the woodland accessible in all weathers, Boasley Wood [named after the nearby village of Boasley Cross] is a super wood, perfect for family forestery.

From the private parking area in the south east corner of the woodland, a broad track runs all the way along the southern and eastern boundaries, then turns left (west) along one of the hedge-banks, to the shared access track which runs along the western side of the wood.

A broad grass ride runs diagonally through a block of conifers at the northern end of Boasley Wood, forming an avenue and joining the perimeter track close to the north-east corner of the wood.

Before the woodlands were created [around 18 years ago], this and the surrounding land was mainly grazing for sheep and cattle. All of the hedge-banks which formed the field boundaries have been retained, giving the individual woodlands a high level of privacy and feeling of being self-contained, even though they are part of a larger area of privately owned woods. The hedges also offer shelter and cover for the many species of birds which inhabit or visit the woods and in the autumn, the berries provide a rich source of food for birds and small mammals foraging at ground level. Within the hedges there is a huge amount of material for stick makers and other 'coppice products', since they contain a lot of hazel, willow and blackthorn.

Roughly a quarter of the woodland - the northern part - is planted with spruce whilst the remainder is a good mixed planting of broad-leaved species including oak, birch and sweet-chestnut. The well-spaced planting has been maintained to a high level, with most of the formative pruning and brashing having been done, making it easy to walk between and beneath the fast-maturing trees.

Exploring around and through Boasley Wood, you may well be struck by how - for such a comparatively small woodland of about three and a quarter acres - the different parts of the woodland have such different characters and the rich variety of habitats it contains.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Dick White.
