Ilex Wood, Gloucestershire - About 3 acres, £42,000

Ilex Wood

The fertile plains of the Wye and Severn rivers around Ilex Wood are characterised in recent generations by traditional farms and numerous small villages.

Once within the shelter of the wood an attractive pond lies at the heart of Ilex Wood acting as the social hub for the many woodland creatures that come here to drink and also as the nursery for the woodland insects that provide the first important link in the food chain.

Numerous pathways wend their way through the wood amongst an interesting array of ground flora. Grassy clearings are linked by these paths beneath a canopy of predominantly mature oak. Under the protection of these historic oak trees, hazel, hawthorn and holly provide cover and variety throughout the wood. Hazel coppice is much in evidence and for the forestry enthusiast is a valuable and versatile resource for woodland crafts.

Well made access tracks lead through surrounding woodland directly to the boundary of Ilex Wood. Further improvement may be required to enhance vehicle access into the wood. Assistance with this can be made available and Woodlands.co.uk will be happy to discuss how this can be coordinated whilst carrying out similar work nearby.

Ilex is the Latin name for Holly from which the wood takes its name. Holly trees are an ancient symbol of Christianity and fertility and can be found scattered throughout the wood

Nearby is the attractive village of Blaisdon; a thriving village and home to the Red Hart Inn within easy walking distance for refreshments after a rewarding day of woodland activity.

Beyond Ilex Wood the natural beauty of the surrounding area draws many visitors. Numerous walking trails cross the county including The Gloucestershire Way and Offa's Dyke Path. The Wye Valley offers a chance to enjoy the scenery from the water and the historic city of Gloucester provides all the facilities necessary for a comfortable camping experience or to begin the journey of managing your own wood.

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.
