Bosco Wood, Dorset - About 10 ½ acres, £150,000

Bosco Wood

Bosco Wood promises great adventure for the next guardian of this most diverse of woodlands. The range of tree species is immense; from commonplace holly, birch and ash to the unexpected rowan, cedar and hornbeam. There is a surprise awaiting behind every new thicket and ancient bank as the character and make up of the wood changes dramatically the further you venture into the secretive interior.

There are remarkable specimens of oak trees of often staggering proportions and sheltering beneath this canopy remnants of hazel coppice are ready to be revived into a productive cycle. Closer to the ground the bronzy bun shaped cep mushroom merges with the leaf litter; an elusive prize for the country kitchen.

Clearing after hidden clearing continues to delight the explorer with the shear range of woodland flora on display.

Whilst visiting look out for one of the many roe deer that occupy this quiet corner, other deer sometimes seen include red, sika and fallow. Smaller mammals include foxes, badgers and stoats. The tree canopy hosts a wide variety of birds and if visiting at dawn or dusk please do sit and listen to the birdsong.

The boundaries of Bosco Wood look mainly across the open pastures of East Dorset and are clearly defined by these field boundaries and ancient banks.

The surrounding area has a long standing tradition of landowning patronage and has enjoyed the stewardship of important local figures since William de Bello Bosco of Norman decent was the first documented owner of local heathland and woodland in 1377 and it is from him that this woodland takes its name.

In modern times the locality is much admired for its natural beauty providing easy access to the delights of the New Forest, Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the south coast.

These details 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.

  • Price: £150,000 Freehold
  • Location: Edmondsham, Verwood, Dorset
  • Size: About 10 ½ acres for sale


Indicative boundary markings on trees are in blue and mainly run along the top of the ancient banks that surround the woodland. Elsewhere there are coloured marker posts running through the wood and clear boundaries with adjacent open fields.

From the south, after passing Ringwood, leave the A31 at the B3081 junction signposted Verwood and follow the B3081 north on the Verwood Road.

Continue your journey through Verwood town centre along Station Road, until you reach the roundabout signposted to Alderholt and Cranborne along Champtoceaux Road.

After a couple of miles the road bears round to the right and The Heavy Horse Centre is on your left. After a further 500 metres there is a sharp left hand bend as the road becomes Batterley Drove. The entrance to the woods is located a few metres along a private road on your right on the apex of this bend. There is a 'Woodlands For Sale' sign by the entrance gate, where you can park (taking care not to cause an obstruction) and continue along the woodland track on foot. (The new owner will be provided with a key access for the entrance gate)

The track continues into the woods, bearing right initially and then left after a few hundred metres until after a further 200 metres or so you will see the name sign and blue markings for Bosco Wood in front of you as the track bears sharply right.
