Beauchamp Wood - SOLD, Devon - About 2 ⅔ acres, £32,000

Beauchamp Wood - SOLD
Beauchamp Wood - SOLD
Devon

A mixed semi natural ancient woodland with stunning views in the heart of Devon.

This majestic semi-natural Ancient woodland set in the heart of Mid Devon has been part of the landscape for centuries. Historical records show that Beauchamp Wood has been woodland since at least the year 1600, when Queen Elizabeth 1 was still on the throne, Sir Walter Raleigh was soon to become Governor for Cornwall and William Shakespeare had recently written The Tragedy of Julius Caesar.

During this incredible timeline has allowed the woodland to form a rich diversity of flora and fauna with some impressive trees and flora. Bluebells proliferate throughout the northern section, well spaced broadleaved trees here allow good internal access and include species such as ash, birch, beech and hazel.

The area of Beauchamp Wood to the south of the forestry track also has a rich history even though it has been in the past cleared and then replanted with conifer trees, probably during and after the Second World War, and then once again harvested more recently. This has allowed natural regeneration to begin and also provides scope for selective replanting should the purchaser desire. Or simply sit back, enjoy the space and see what nature provides over the years

Access to the woodland is across a shared track and once within the woodland via a forestry track. There is a useful large level area to the south of the woodland which can be used for parking, camping, a green wood working area as well as for timber stacking.

You can often glance a roe or red deer grazing in and around Beauchamp Wood. Badgers leave their well-worn paths on the ground throughout.

Beauchamp Wood is a habitational name, of Norman origin from the Old French words 'beu, bel, fair', 'lovely' and 'champ(s)' meaning 'field' and in English the surname is generally Beecham.

The local area is quiet and very pleasant with country lanes winding through small villages. However Exmoor National Park is within east reach of Beauchamp Wood and the stunning north Devon coast with its popular surfing beaches of Croyde or Woolacombe, and Westward Ho! is within a 45 minute drive.

The market town of Tiverton is within a short drive and has many facilities including shops and a leisure centre with a swimming pool.

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.

Directions

- Viewing is strictly by appointment only. Please contact the agent prior to your visit to get details of how to access the woodland to view.

- Once you have registered your interest and received detailed access information then follow the directions below.

- From the market town of Tiverton, travel north from the A361 onto the A396 towards Bolham.

- After approximately 3¾ miles take the left turn towards Stoodleigh over the Iron Bridge.

- Stay on this road for about 1 mile looking out for a turn on your left towards Lower Dryhill, just after a house called 'Shilhay' on your right.

- Take this turn onto a private drive belonging to Lower Dryhill where there is an access over into the woodland. Drive very carefully down the stoned track bearing in mind that children or dogs may be on the track. Please do not drive on the grass. If you meet another vehicle then please reverse back rather than going onto the grass banks.

- After around 200 metres you will see the main woodland entrance gate in front of you with a ‘woodlands for sale’ sign just beyond it.

- Head through the gate and turn right, either park here and walk to the wood by immediately taking the track on the left winding up through the trees or drive if you have a suitable vehicle, 4x4 recommended.

- Continue on the main woodland track for around 400 metres where you will see the Beauchamp Wood name sign. Park just beyond the large beech tree that is on the track edge to view.

- Beauchamp Wood is either side of the track, to the east is semi natural ancient woodland and to the west is ancient replanted woodland with a picnic bench with very fine valley views.
