Otri River Wood, Cornwall - Over 5 ½ acres, £45,000

Otri River Wood
Otri River Wood
Cornwall

Tucked away in a peaceful valley twixt a small stream is this picturesque conifer woodland with a private parking area and shelter with fine views.

Otri River Wood is approached by taking the well-made track which runs along the southern boundary, passes along another area of private woodland and then bends round to the right. From the point where the track enters Otri River Wood, the woodland extends to both sides of the track providing good access for amenity enjoyment and woodland management.

To the left is an area of mature conifers and broadleaves with a stream along the northern boundary. It is easy to identify places where red and roe deer regularly cross the stream. There is a picnic bench here to enjoy this quiet location. The woodland floor in this part of the wood is a typical mix of bluebells and wild garlic. Also running across this section, almost parallel to the track, is a mill leat which at one time carried water to drive the wheel at Trelaske Mill, some 1.5 miles or so to the east.

The stream goes on to join the River Inny where otters are a frequent visitors. The River Inny is a tributary of the River Tamar alongside the River Ottery or 'Otri' in Cornish reflecting the habitation of the otter.

Just off the track, to the left is a "lay-by" - a short, level section of private track and a stoned parking area which makes a great place to park or stack logs for the burner.

Otri River Wood also lies to the right (south) of the access track. This area comprises mostly mature conifers with hazel, holly and other species beneath. Again, the woodland floor is carpeted with bluebells making for a spectacular display in spring. The conifers are well spaced, having been extensively thinned whilst still leaving a good crop of timber. Between the firs, natural regeneration of hazel, sycamore and willow is in evidence.

As well as deer, badgers, foxes and rabbits are present whilst above buzzards circle overhead and many varieties of songbird will be heard more than seen. Otter are often seen in the nearby River Inny and on occasion use the boundary stream when the river is in spate.

Otri River Wood has a wide variety of habitats and whilst some of the gradients at the south of the woodland are challenging if you take the shortest route - taking a gentler course across the woodland reveals many sights, sounds (and smells when the garlic is fresh) which might otherwise be missed.

A report has been prepared detailing the ancient woodland areas of the wood and providing useful guidance and information on restoration options. A copy of the report is available upon request.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Stuart Brooking.

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.
