Yewbank Wood, South Lakes - About 4 ⅓ acres, £35,000

Yewbank Wood

Yewbank Wood is primarily yew woodland growing on limestone and is best described by the National Vegetation Classification as W13 (Taxus baccata - yew woodland) which is a rare native woodland habitat in the UK. Within Cumbria it is only found in a few locations. There are also areas of more diverse broadleaved woodland where the canopy consists of ash with cherry, birch and willow. These parts of the wood have a hazel understory and a diversity of plants including bluebells, dogs mercury and wild garlic. The plant communities indicate that Yewbank has been woodland for a very long time and is recorded as Ancient Semi Natural Woodland meaning that the land has been continuously wooded since at least 1600 AD. The wood was once part of the grounds of what is now the Woodlands Hotel.

Yewbank Wood is a beautiful, rich and intriguing wood with easy access to its slopes and paths. It is open access woodland (designated under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000).

The Area: the Lakeland fells are to the north. With Morcambe Bay to the south, Yewbank Wood is perfectly located on the southern edge of the Lake District National Park. There are plenty of B+Bs locally as well as a caravan site and the 4 star Woodlands Hotel, just down the road.

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.
