Blewit Wood, Somerset - About 2 ¾ acres, £35,000

Blewit Wood

This engaging and diverse woodland was planted approximately sixty years ago by a local landowner. Although initially a commercial crop of conifer, over time natural regeneration has lead to the later addition of ash, beech, holly and hawthorn. The enduring effect of this woodland landscape is the sense of well being that can now be enjoyed from a visit to the woods where such a range of colours and wildlife habitats are now much in evidence.

There is good level access along a recently upgraded forestry track to the entrance. This track continues around the boundary of Blewit Wood to a further access point and onward into the inviting interior via a cleared ride running through the wood. There are numerous shady clearings and grassy open areas ideal for camping.

The thick flowering hawthorn is a particular feature at Blewit Wood. Not only is this an eye catching display in early summer but provides important dense cover for roe deer during the day to nurture young spring fawns. It is surprising for both deer and humans alike how close you can come to these timid woodland creatures in Blewit Wood.

The wood takes its name from the wood blewit. This woodland fungus can be found throughout autumn nestled into the crisp brown leaf litter and often later in the year in mild weather. It is considered edible but should only make it to the pot if you are completely confident it has been correctly identified!

The villages of Cleeve and Wrington are nearby and also the larger centres of Backwell and Nailsea where a range of hostelries provide a welcome alternative to campfire catering for an evening. The city of Bristol is within a few miles has lots of businesses useful for the woodland owner.

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.
