Druid Wood, Devon - About 3 ½ acres, £35,000

Druid Wood

Spending time in Druid Wood is an invigorating experience. The air is filled with the smell of fir trees in early summer. A sunny grassy clearing has a wooden bench - a great place to sit and take in the atmosphere whilst resident roe deer wander by. An overnight camping trip would bring you in touch with the sounds of owls replaced by the dawn chorus as daylight illuminates the wood. These are all great for one's spirit.

The open character of Druid Wood is a result of good management in previous years leaving the Douglas fir trees well-spaced and this makes the woodland easy to explore and enjoy. It allows the trees to mature further giving a longer-term forest resource.

The woodland and surroundings are diverse in wildlife. Woodland birds present here include both greater spotted and green woodpeckers, tawny owls, buzzards and smaller birds such as the goldcrest. When enjoying the woodland you may see or hear mammals such as foxes and roe deer or you can look out for footprints or droppings.

An ancient wood-bank dissects the wood from east to west, along which are some sweet chestnut trees which add to diversity of habitat and vista. On the eastern boundary there is a spring.

Druid Wood is easily found from the main A38 Devon Expressway via a country lane and a stoned forest track so ideal for even a brief visit when in the vicinity. The added bonus here is the ability to access the footpaths of Dartmoor by walking down the main track in the larger woodland. A ten minute walk through the trees takes you down to the northern end of the larger woodland and here you can join a bridleway that takes you within the parish of Ilsington at the eastern fringe of Dartmoor National Park. Here there are numerous walks and cycle rides that take in breathtaking views. There are even a couple of pubs within an hour’s walk such as the The Welcome Stranger and The Carpenters Arms.

As well as the magnificent surroundings of Dartmoor, there are numerous other interesting places near to the woodland, from the ancient stannary town of Ashburton to the market town of Bovey Tracey as well as the wonders of the National Park of Dartmoor. For the more adventurous the nearby coastal Torbay has numerous beaches and activities.
