Chapman Wood, Devon - About 7 ¾ acres, £95,000

Chapman Wood
Chapman Wood
Devon

A younger woodland with mixed conifer and broadleaved trees set within open grassy rides benefitting from a private access gate and an excellent position near the north Devon coastline.

Chapman Wood is peacefully located within the Torridge district of north Devon. It is within walking distance of the South West Coast Path, which is England's longest way marked long-distance footpath. The fishing village of Clovelly can be reached via the coast path and is around a 40 minute walk.

The charming village of Hartland, which incorporates the hamlet of Stoke and the village of Meddon is within 2.5 miles and offers cafes, restaurants, pubs and shops as well as Hartland Abbey, which is well worth a visit. Hartland Quay, surrounded by the impressively imposing cliff lined coast is a further 2 miles.

Trees

Woodland was established here around 18 years ago with a mixed planting of spruce conifer trees and broadleaved trees including oak, ash, field maple and birch.

The spruce has thrived in the loamy, clay soil and has formed a dense woodland with good shelter and small scale timber production potential. The broadleaved trees have also done well with tall birch trees intertwined with attractive oak and well formed field maples. The ash is more varied in success and allows some small scale 'enrichment' replanting of other native species.

There is a mature hedgerow along the southern and western boundaries consisting of native species such as hawthorn and blackthorn.

Wildlife

Excellent for bird watching due to the mix of tree species and open areas, there is scope to install a small bird hide for endless days of observational enjoyment. Experience buzzards (Buteo buteo) gliding through the trees and soaring high in the sky on thermals along with smaller birds such as the bullfinch, robin and chaffinch. Starlings can often be seen performing a mesmerising formation called a murmuration.

Both red deer and roe deer frequent the area and enjoy grazing on the rich meadow grass.

Features

Chapman Wood has been planted with large open grass rides which serve as an attractive focal point throughout the woodland whilst giving lots of space for camping and family activities. These rides also benefit local wildlife as a source of grazing or a wide flight path for buzzards.

Extra special is the far reaching views over the stunning landscape to the east where you can see the Barnstaple bay and the beach at Saunton Sands in the distance.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access is via a private gateway directly into Chapman Wood from a tarmac track. Once inside the gate there is a stoned parking area.

Within a 30 - 40 minute walk is the SW coast path along the Hartland Peninsula

Another beautiful walk is through the National Trust woodland Woodreeve Wood that takes you to the upper reaches of the village of Clovelly.

Rights and covenants

Sporting rights are included in the sale.

The standard covenant applies to this wood.

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.

Activities

For days out enjoying this very picturesque part of north Devon, Chapman Wood is an ideal base for camping expeditions with family or friends. Surrounding quiet country roads allow blissful walking and cycling adventures. The South West coast path is within easy reach.

Those with the knowledge of or keen interest in learning about tree care and maintenance are able to help this young woodland fulfil its long term potential.

Local area and history
