Bellflower Wood, Gloucestershire - About 7 ¾ acres, £99,000

Bellflower Wood
Bellflower Wood
Gloucestershire

A stunning enclave of woodland wildlife and biodiversity set amidst the peaceful rural landscape of Gloucestershire

A walk through Bellflower Wood is a journey into the animal kingdom. The feeling is one of being a guest in another's home and that hidden eyes are watching from the undergrowth as you make your way into the realm of the woodland creatures.

From a large stoned parking area at the entrance, grassy trails lead into the wood and pass beneath a mixed canopy of oak, birch and mature conifer. Evidence of the natural inhabitants is everywhere. The imprints of cloven hoofs are scattered in the soft earth and the thick animal scent of wild boar hangs heavily around the muddy wallows at the tracks edge. Well worn foraging routes disappear into the thicket and the occasional snap of a breaking twig pierces the still of the forest. The watchers are never far away.

The abundance of wildlife is a natural consequence of the varied terrain here. Bellflower Wood is large enough to support extensive variation in character. In one part an area of sparse tree cover has lead to dense ground flora, where deer and nocturnal boar can hide during daylight hours. Elsewhere areas of hazel along the edge of grassy rides attracts butterflies in sunny clearings and stands of giant conifer reach skyward for the safety of nesting birds.

An area of young oak provides the habitat for the next generation of wildlife and the vivid pink of foxgloves illuminates the numerous pathways and clearings that run throughout Bellflower Wood, which takes its name from the flower that although uncommon can be found in temperate woodland regions.

Beyond Bellflower Wood the natural beauty of the surrounding area draws many visitors. Numerous walking trails cross the county including The Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path. The Wye Valley offers a chance to enjoy the scenery from the water and the historic city of Gloucester provides all the facilities necessary for a comfortable camping experience or to begin the journey of managing your own wood.

These particulars and plans were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
