Leah Tun Wood, Buckinghamshire - Nearly 3 ½ acres, £45,000

Leah Tun Wood

Leah Tun Wood provides a perfect opportunity to shape and create a classical English woodland. The foundations are in place, planted between 1996 and 1998 it has grown exceptionally well. Oaks and ash dominate whilst scattered amongst them are silver birch, cherry, alder, field maple and hawthorn.

As it's a young woodland there will be many opportunities such as thinning some of the trees in the future which will create a valuable source of firewood. Whilst making a small glade would allow sedges and grass to get a foothold creating a more diverse habitat.

The edge of the woodland has a number of older crab apple trees, hazel coppice stools and some large hawthorns. These add variety and a varied habitat for wildlife. An internal private ride dissects the woodland and a bench has been placed here. Please do take some time to sit and enjoy the surroundings whilst listening to the numerous birds that fill the air with their chatter. This area is bathed in light and is already wide enough to set up camp or to picnic at its far end.

The woodland feels wonderfully secluded as it is located within a much larger woodland known as Graces Farm Wood. The wood was named Leah Tun wood after the old English name for the local town area. "Leighton" came from Old English Lēah-tūn, meaning 'farm in a clearing in the woods'.

Access is via a good forest ride that is well drained for most of the year. In the winter the owner can park in a private parking area for the exclusive use of the woodland owners near the highway and walk the short way down to Leah Tun Wood. Full vehicular access is given with the woodland.

The woodland is easily found. Located just off Dunton Road in the village of Stewkley and being under six miles from the centre of Leighton Buzzard and ten miles from Aylesbury it has great possibilities for anyone looking for a country retreat.
