Nettlebed Wood, Hampshire - Over 3 acres, £49,000

Nettlebed Wood
Nettlebed Wood
Hampshire

A classic English beech wood teaming with wildlife and interest as a place to preserve and enjoy the natural world.

A crisp bright day is an enchanting time in the winter woods. The last of the golden autumn leaves retreat into the woodland floor and provide refuge for the insects and small mammals from the ravages of the coming winter.

There is however still plenty of life to be discovered in this mature beech woodland as woodland creatures make preparations and feed up on provisions of seeds and berries. The moist air is now perfect for the fruiting fungal blooms on the deadwood of last year's fallen trees.

Trees

Bright red berries of evergreen holly are in sharp relief against the monochrome woodland landscape and the drooping boughs of the giant beech trees are relieved of their summer growth. The bare trunks and boughs allow the winters light to penetrate deep into the woods. And so the process begins again...the roots and bulbs lie dormant, covered in the deep leaf litter in readiness for spring, of which the snowdrop will be one of the first to appear.

Wildlife

Roe and muntjac deer are often seen whilst the trees above host a wide variety of birds.

Features

Nettlebed Wood is a true refuge from the frantic pace of modern life. Located near the end of a long private woodland track it enjoys a peaceful spot at the edge of open fields. For centuries the seasons have come and gone and the woodland has seen the passing of many generations. They have supported both animal and human life in many different ways; as a source of wood fuel and building material and as well as a vital food supply. In more recent times they have also become a place of recreation and education.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Nettlebed Wood is available freehold and there are no public rights of way through the wood.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

The surrounding area is characterised by its rural beauty and extensive agriculture; including a nearby farm after which the wood is named. A number of large towns and cities along the south coast are within easy reach and there is good access to the motorway network and the capital. This connectivity makes the privilege of preserving and and enjoying the natural woodland environment within reach for many.
