SOLD: Troon Wood £49,000 Freehold


Planted around 25-30 years ago, Troon Wood has become quickly established as a charming broadleaved woodland. The well spaced trees have formed a canopy and ground conditions are open and easy to get around.

The woodland slopes gently north westwards at the lower side and steeper at the far south eastern side. Plenty of light penetrates to the woodland floor allowing ground flora to flourish.

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.


A mix of broadleaved trees such as oak, sweet-chestnut and sycamore, with an understory of mostly holly and hazel. The trees have thrived on the free draining, slightly acidic loamy soil.

The sweet chestnut (Castanea sativa) is already at a size where it could be coppiced to provide some timber for small scale woodland projects as part of a coppice rotation under a felling license. Sweet chestnut is a very durable timber, ideal for outdoor uses, including fencing as it contains naturally occurring tannins. Also important for wildlife as it's flowers contain a rich source of nectar for bees and other insects. A number of micro moth species feed on the nuts and leaves.


There are signs of badgers using the woodland via established paths through the bluebells along with 'snuffle holes' where they have been digging for earth worms.

Both foxes and deer pass through the woodland.

Troon Wood is important for insects with the larger, old oak trees at the northern edge of the woodland supporting more biodiversity than any other native tree.

The ground is rich in plant species such as ferns, primroses and a sea of bluebells in parts of the woodland.


An old entrance with historic granite posts can be found at the south west corner of Troon Wood.

There is a wood bank along the southern boundary and a double tree lined bank at the north which is shown to be an cart track on old maps.

Access, tracks and footpaths

From the quiet country lane that leads to the woodland there is a good stone track lined with hedgerow flowers. There is a parking space along the edge of Troon Wood and an old access way into the woodlands at the south west tip of the woodland.

There are no public footpaths within Troon Wood.

Rights and covenants

Sporting rights are in hand.

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.


Perfect for enjoyment of nature and wildife as well as occasional camping or as a green woodworking base.
