Lord's Wood - SOLD, Cornwall - About 5 acres, £42,000

Lord's Wood - SOLD
Lord's Wood - SOLD
Cornwall

A young but maturing broadleaved woodland set in the North Cornish countryside and within easy reach of the coast.

If you stand at the south-west corner of Lord's Wood and look north to Kilkhampton with its prominent church tower, you will see a large area of open ground. This is Lord's Meadow, mentioned in the Doomsday Book as having belonged to King William I and before him to Harold (the Saxon king).

The woodland itself is approximately rectangular in shape and from the entrance gate near to the south-west corner, it slopes gently down towards the northern boundary. Well-made, stoned tracks run all along the southern and eastern boundaries, with a stoned parking area near to the south-east corner of the woodland.

The woodlands of which Lord's Wood is a part were established around 16 years ago on what was previously open farmland and the woods are still surrounded by farmland with fine views out to the north and east across the rolling fields.

The village of Kilkhampton is nearby. Here you will find a good range of shops, pubs, cafes and a farmers store and there is easy access to many leisure facilities like Tamar Lakes and resorts such as Bude.

The woodland is a mixed planting of broadleaf species including poplar, oak, ash, alder, wild cherry and rowan. There is also a variety of woody shrubs along the margins including field maple and spindle with its vibrant pink clusters. A small track runs down the western boundary and then across the wood from west to east. There is also a broader track leading off from about half-way down the eastern boundary and passing through several of the open grassy areas within the woodland - one of which has a bench. This track is just about passable with a suitable vehicle, making the process of extracting firewood (or depositing camping gear & supplies) a little easier.

As well as roe deer which are frequent visitors to the wood there is a varied bird-life with kestrels, buzzards and recently, red kite overhead. Towards the northern boundary, where a small stream runs the land here takes on more of a wetland character, you could be lucky enough to see species which favour this type of habitat, such as snipe, woodcock and sandpipers.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Dick White

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.
