Bourne Wood, Hampshire - About 4 ¾ acres, £55,000

Bourne Wood

Upon arriving at the wood the tranquillity of the environment is at once apparent to the visitor. Follow the paths from the cleared parking area by the entrance, into the inviting interior. Here you will enter another world of forest creatures and woodland flora beneath a natural canopy of mature beech trees. From the brilliant green coverings of soft moss that cling to old stumps to the tufts of sedges and arum, or 'Lords and Ladies', that thrive in the grassy clearings; there is plenty here to discover. As you progress through the open wood towards the fringes, birch saplings and giant oak form a natural boundary and frame the delightful vista across the neighbouring fields of Bourne Park; a nearby country house.

The White Admiral butterfly has been spotted fluttering through the wood catching the shafts of sunlight that filter through the tree canopy upon its translucent wings. Roe deer are also a common sight here. Sometimes referred to as the fairies of the wood these delicate deer are browsers and nibble on choice stems as they drift undisturbed through the woodland.

Bourne Wood is an ideal place in which to escape; this is a peaceful place to spend the night camping or to have family time away from all the hustle and bustle of modern day life, where childhood pursuits of woodland dens and insect hunting can be indulged.

The countryside in this part of Hampshire is of great natural beauty. This idyllic farming landscape of sweeping vistas has retained a timeless charm that has remained unchanged for generations. Nearby Andover now offers a wide range of facilities, having originally grown to prominence during the eighteenth century as a coaching stopover for passengers passing through the area.

These details were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.

Directions

From the A303 leave at the Andover exit signed for the A343 and head north to Hurstbourne Tarrant and Newbury. A mile or so after passing through the village of Enham Alamein there is a turning on your right to Little London. If you are approaching from the North along the A343 then this turning is on your left about a mile or so after passing through the village of Hurstbourne Tarrant.

Continue down this country lane for about a mile until you reach Little London and then turn left into the village on a right hand bend. The road will then lead you through Little London, between the houses and then along a lane with woodland either side. After 500 metres you will reach the entrance to the woods on your left. The gate here is kept locked but you can stop here and continue on foot straight along the woodland track. Bourne Wood is set deep within this larger area of woodland and you will need to allow plenty of time for your visit to get there.

Vehicular access rights will be given to the new owner.

You will pass by several turnings on your left and right as you pass through the woodland until after approximately 1000 metres the track bends to the right and after a further 200 metres take a left turn and continue for 150 metres until you come across the entrance to Bourne Wood on your right.
