Fieldfare Wood - SOLD, Gloucestershire - About 4 ¼ acres, £55,000

Fieldfare Wood - SOLD
Fieldfare Wood - SOLD
Gloucestershire

Unspoilt elevated views over open farmland from the fringes of Fieldfare Wood make this secluded woodland a most appealing place to enjoy some spiritual distancing.

Fieldfare Wood is the most glorious escape from the rigours of modern day work and lifestyle. The views from the fringes of the wood looking north and west across the farmland of rural Gloucestershire are truly uplifting. The woodland enthusiast will find this a thought provoking and restful place to spend time amidst the calming influence of nature and to reflect on the increasing importance of conserving our natural environment. Awakening from a night under the protective canopy of the mature woodland and looking out across the open countryside at sunrise is a rare and timeless privilege for young and old alike.

The woodland particularly lends itself to a secluded camping experience as there are some attractive natural clearings beneath the mature oak trees standing at the north eastern corner of the wood. This section of woodland is elevated above the neighbouring fields and is scattered with delicate woodland grasses and spring flowers that line the old logging track that provides access to the far reaches of the woodland boundary.

This is a wood however of diverse character. Other areas within its boundary present a very different opportunity for an enlarged clearing or to reinstate indigenous broadleaf species where conifer plantation has been felled in recent years. This now open area of ground is well protected by the area of large oaks that guard the boundaries.

The wood takes its name from the Fieldfare bird that visits the UK countryside during winter months and thrives on the open arable land and hedgerows that surround the woodland.

Access to the wood is via a good track that in turn leads to a quiet country lane in the attractive village of Blaisdon. This unspoilt area of the country has for centuries attracted visitors to enjoy the stunning natural landscape of the Wye valley and the forest of Dean. This once mainly forested landscape was an extensive royal hunting ground for generations and in modern times is rich in local history and mythology; where rural craft, folklore and legend combine in this unique rural enclave.

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.
