Beckside Wood - SOLD, Cumbria - Just over 5.75 acres, £59,000

Beckside Wood - SOLD

Beckside Wood is part of a larger wood bisected by Hell Beck, a tributary of Gelt River.

The woodland is a lovely mixture of Scots pine and larch with vigorous succession from a variety of native broad-leaves. Sycamore, birch and elder all vie for the light with holly and honeysuckle competing at a lower level.

A track leads to the heart of the wood where an open area of flat ground invites an overnight camp. A second grassy track gives access to an interesting and accessible section of the beck. Lined with sorrel and fern, it is an attractive place to sit and watch the local residents: maybe a Jay squawking noisily up in the canopy, or a dipper fishing in the stream, perhaps a deer, tense and alert, moving through the trees. As a guest in their home, patience is well rewarded with many a sighting.

Whether your interest is wildlife, conservation and management or recreation and fun, Beckside Wood is a special place to be and an investment for the future.

The area surrounding the wood is quiet and peaceful farm and woodland. However in 1570 it was the site of the battle of Hell Beck: this was local support in the shape of a northern uprising for Mary, Queen of Scots, but it was brutally suppressed by the incumbent Queen Elizabeth I. Many years later, a skeleton in full battle dress was found in the woods; keep your eyes peeled!

With the attractive market town of Brampton to the north and the Lower Eden Valley to the south, Beckside Wood is perfectly located. It is close to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The wood is also a short distance from Talkin Tarn Country Park and Geltside RSPB nature reserve, There is a good selection of B+Bs locally.

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.
