Poulton Wood, Gloucestershire - About 4 ⅓ acres, £59,000

Poulton Wood
Poulton Wood
Gloucestershire

It is a rare to find a small woodland with such an appealing range of features, including a stand of mature coast redwoods, an attractive pond and a variety of tree types of various stages of maturity.

Recently improved access tracks pass beneath the shelter of surrounding woodland to the entrance to Poulton Wood. Once within the boundaries of the wood an attractive pond lies at its heart, acting as the thriving hub for the many woodland creatures that come here to drink, including wild boar and deer. The pond also acts as the nursery for the woodland insects that provide the first important link in the food chain.

Numerous pathways wend their way through the woodland amongst an interesting array of ground flora. Grassy clearings are linked by these paths between stands of young birch. Exploring the wood is a journey of discovery, emerging from dense cover to make the next intriguing find; either the nest of the wood ant or the complete change of environment provided by a stand of imposing coastal redwoods that have sheltered a tranquil clearing at their base. Under the protection of these giants is a perfect spot to spend nights under canvas around the camp fire and observe the wildlife at close quarters.

The access track leads through surrounding woodland directly to the boundary of Poulton Wood, where there is space to park. The name of the wood takes its name from the conjunction of the old English words 'pol' and tun' meaning the place with the pool or pond.

The fertile plains of the Wye and Severn rivers around Poulton Wood are characterised in recent generations by traditional farms and numerous small villages. Nearby is the attractive village of Blaisdon; a thriving settlement and home to the Red Hart Inn within easy walking distance for refreshments after a rewarding day of woodland activity. The cathedral city of Gloucester is within ten miles, with access to the M5 motorway.

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.
