Estover Wood - SOLD, Somerset - About 3 ¾ acres, £49,000

Estover Wood - SOLD

Estover Wood is a delightful blend of mature larch, fir and ash interspersed with occasional yew, sycamore and holly. This interesting mix supports a variety of wildlife and creates an ideal opportunity for the enthusiastic small woodland owner to increase the proportion of broadleaf species, harvest mature timber or benefit from the abundance of available wood fuel. The usually timid roe deer can be found browsing freely here by the patient wildlife watcher as these deer roam uninhibited through the wood, along the many rides and paths beneath the towering tree tops.

Estover Wood is ready to be enjoyed for the enormous amenity value that it offers for family and friends keen to explore the shady thickets and sunny clearings that make up this wood. This dense area of mature woodland is a great place to become immersed in the natural environment, where a secluded camping clearing would make the perfect escape and an opportunity to observe nature at close quarters

The wood is named after the ancient right of Estover, which was an agreement with the landlord that allowed tenants of land to take timber from woodland for firewood and building repairs. In these more modern times Estover Wood has easy and level access along a length of well maintained track into its own parking area and is therefore suitable to visit with a normal family car.

The wider surrounding area is characterised by the natural beauty of The Mendip Hills that rise in this part of Somerset and stretch southward. Numerous small villages and market towns make up the local population and although conveniently nearby, the city of Bristol seems a world away from within the sanctuary of the wood.

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: £49,000 Freehold
  • Location: Brockley, Nailsea, Somerset
  • Size: About 3 ¾ acres for sale


Boundaries are indicated by orange markings on posts running through the wood on all boundaries and in addition the access track marks the southern boundary.
