Rosehill Wood - SOLD, Cornwall - About 4 ½ acres, £45,000

Rosehill Wood - SOLD
Rosehill Wood - SOLD
Cornwall

A very special Cornish oak woodland where wildlife flourishes.

Rosehill Wood, named after a nearby farmstead, is in many ways a classic oak woodland, featuring trees of many different shapes and sizes.

Approached along a broad curving track, much of the woodland is set on level ground and making your way around is very easy, particularly if you follow well-worn tracks created by roe deer. Towards the southern end of the woodland, the character changes with the land sloping away to the south and beech replacing oak as the dominant species.

There is plenty of firewood lying around the woodland, thus there is no need to fell trees in order to top up your fuel supply, although selective removal of some of the less vigorous oaks would allow more space and light for healthier specimens to flourish.

Among the fallen trees, one oak in particular forms a kind of natural sculpture, with the upturned roots resembling a chick, neck held high and beak gaping, awaiting its next meal.

As well as the oak and beech there are some well established hazel, perfect for those who wish to try their hand at coppicing (and as a further source of wood fuel).

All along the western boundary there are far reaching views out across open farmland whilst the other three sides of Rosehill Wood are bounded by further areas of private woodland.

As well as the roe deer, other four-legged visitors include badgers, foxes and rabbits whilst the trees host a wide mix of songbirds and the occasional buzzard perched on a high branch or swooping down through the trees.

Wide open spaces between the trees provide ample room for camping and although the tree canopy is quite complete, there is more than enough light allowed through to encourage a rich ground flora, including a fantastic display of bluebells (and even daffodils) in springtime.

Rosehill Wood is a very special place indeed.

Note: in the south-east corner of Rosehill Wood there is an old mineshaft. This has been securely and professionally fenced off and there are clear warning signs around it.

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.
