Goldeneye Wood - SOLD, Hampshire - About 3 ¾ acres, £55,000

Goldeneye Wood - SOLD
Goldeneye Wood - SOLD
Hampshire

Goldeneye Wood is sheltered amongst other woodland and enclosed by clearly defined boundaries including woodland tracks and a stream along one edge.

The winter woodland can at first appear to be a place where there is little life: where nothing flourishes in the cold and damp months that can be so restrictive to all outdoor activity. Brave the elements however; venture into the woods and a picture emerges of an environment where life can thrive in the harshest of conditions. A few notable examples of this are immediately identifiable against the uniform brown backdrop of the dormant hazel, birch and oak of Goldeneye Wood. Most obvious are the evergreen holly and rhododendron that provides thick shelter for the large woodland mammals from the driving winter wind and rain. Whereas some can burrow into the shelter of the earth, muntjac and roe deer will take cover in dense thicket, only dislodged from their hiding by the most imminent of dangers.

Elsewhere flashes of vivid green draw the eye. These bright mossy carpets cover the old stumps of fallen trees and the banks of the stream that rushes in full winter flow through Goldeneye Wood. The bright colour can seem almost incongruous at this time of year but the wettest months are when the ancient moss is able to really thrive. Moss is one of earth's ancient life forms, thought to be one of the first plants to emerge from the primeval swamps and establish on land, where it can absorb up to twenty two times its dry weight. It has no roots, no flowers or no seeds and is often overlooked as a plant of either aesthetic or practical value but in the past has been much valued as a naturally absorbent dressing for wounds with natural antiseptic qualities.

Goldeneye Wood takes its name from the winter visitor, the goldeneye duck that seeks out large bodies of water such as the lakes adjacent to this woodland where they can stop and feed in this rich environment.

The wider surrounding area is characterised by the natural beauty of rural Hampshire. Nearby Hook provides a range of everyday services for the woodland visitor and in spite of the peaceful location there is excellent access to the motorway network just a few minutes away from junction 5 of the M3 to the south or Junction 11 of the M4 to the north.

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.

Description

The winter woodland can at first appear to be a place where there is little life: where nothing flourishes in the cold and damp months that can be so restrictive to all outdoor activity. Brave the elements however; venture into the woods and a picture emerges of an environment where life can thrive in the harshest of conditions. A few notable examples of this are immediately identifiable against the uniform brown backdrop of the dormant hazel, birch and oak of Goldeneye Wood. Most obvious are the evergreen holly and rhododendron that provides thick shelter for the large woodland mammals from the driving winter wind and rain. Whereas some can burrow into the shelter of the earth, muntjac and roe deer will take cover in dense thicket, only dislodged from their hiding by the most imminent of dangers.

Directions

From junction 5 of the M3 follow signs for Hook on the B3349 which skirts around the town for a couple of miles over three roundabouts until a sharp right hand bend, where on this corner a minor road to Rotherwick continues straight ahead for a mile to the village crossroads where there is a right turn along Cowfold Lane. After approx 500 metres there is a gateway into the woods and a Woodlands.co.uk 'For Sale' board. You can park in this entrance taking care not to obstruct the access. You will need to climb the gate and continue on foot into the woods or if preferred there is access into Goldeneye Wood further along Cowfold Lane where the boundary runs adjacent to the highway. Please consult the plans below.

From the gateway proceed straight ahead along the woodland track for 200 metres until a turning on the left. Take this turning and follow the track for a further 100 metres until the entrance to Goldeneye Wood can be seen on your right.
