Mistle Wood - SOLD, Gloucestershire - Nearly 4 acres, £55,000

Mistle Wood - SOLD
Mistle Wood - SOLD
Gloucestershire

A truly exciting opportunity for small woodland ownership. Set deep within the Gloucestershire countryside

A well constructed woodland track leads to the entrance to Mistle Wood from where a series of pathways through the wood provide access deep into the cover of mature woodland. At every turn the differing character of this woodland awaits discovery. The keen eyed will pick up the ancient trails leading through the forest further towards the eastern boundary where the thick conifer cover gives way to hazel coppice and mature oak. From here the delightful sweeping panorama of rural Gloucestershire opens before you and casts light across the forest floor, giving life to the woodland springtime flora.

As the tree density thins out along the northern boundary so the habitat that this offers the resident animal and bird life changes. The foraging routes of woodland creatures can be seen in the delicate mosses and grasses and the broken windblown tree trunks provide safe nesting height for the Mistle Thrush that gives this wood its name.

Mistle Wood forms part of an important wildlife corridor that branches out from the Forest of Dean at its centre. As part of a large block of almost 240 acres of woodland it sustains extensive populations of woodland birds and mammals. It is a short distance from the equally extensive Blaisdon Wood which in turn links to the Forest of Dean itself. In this way many of the species that roam through these linking woodland tracts can also be found in Mistle Wood. In particular there have been sightings of wild boar and their presence is marked by sections of disturbed muddy ground where they have been actively foraging. Although these creatures live in their own sociable matriarchal groups they are mainly nocturnal and extremely elusive.

Beyond Mistle 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.
