Faraway Tree Wood, Devon - Nearly 4 acres, £45,000

Faraway Tree Wood

Faraway Tree Wood is a varied woodland that is listed on the Government database magic.gov.uk as ancient & semi-natural woodland.

This variety of habitats result in a plethora of wildlife including an entire covering of the ground flora of the upper reaches of Faraway Tree Wood. A bench is located in the eastern section, whilst visiting please take some time to sit here and take in the atmosphere. This is a great vantage point for watching wildlife that includes red and roe deer as well as numerous bird life such as the greater spotted woodpeckers and treecreepers. Also located in the eastern section is an incredible 'Faraway Tree', a huge magnificant beech tree that has stood upon the top of this valley for many, many decades. This tree inspired the naming of this wood from the wonderful children’s book by Enid Blyton The Magic Faraway Tree.

Access to the woodland is via a solid stoned forestry track suited to most vehicles all year round. There is a private parking area at the eastern entrance alongside a sizeable level area at the western edge which can be used for private parking. Here there is also a large level clearing suited to a variety of uses including processing, storing and seasoning wood, making a green woodworking area, family camping or even an adventure play area for all the family.

The woodland is partly broadleaved with good cover and such tree species as beech, ash, hazel and oak. The rest of the woodland would have been similar once but has since been replanted as a commercial crop and then partly cleared. There are remnant trees such as beech that are naturally regenerating but there is also scope for carrying out your own replanting, perhaps of native broadleaved trees.

The local area is quiet and very pleasant with country lanes winding through small villages. Exmoor National Park is within easy reach and the stunning north Devon coast with its popular surfing beaches of Croyde or Woolacombe. Whilst 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.

Faraway Tree Wood directions:

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

- After approximately 3 miles take the left turn towards Stoodleigh over the Iron Bridge.

- Take the first left hand turn after crossing the bridge signposted to Washfield.

- Take care along this narrow lane.

- After around 1.5 miles you come to a sharp left hand bend with houses to your left and right. Look out for the entrance to Pond House on your right. Continue past this entrance and after a short section of hedge you will see a wooden gate on your right just before a house.

- This is the shared access track to the woodland.

- Go through the gate, PLEASE CLOSE THE GATE BEHIND YOU.

- Continue over the stone track until you reach another wooden gate at the far side of the field.

- Go through this gate; again please close the gate behind you. If you have a standard car you can park in the parking area just in front of you and continue on foot if you wish.

- Turn right and take the stoned track over the stream and then turn left onto the main woodland track.

- Continue up the track for around 200 metres until you reach a crossroad of forestry tracks. You will see the entrance to the western side of Faraway Tree Wood shortly after the track on your right. There is a large level area here suited to stacking timber and as an area to camp whilst you are enjoying or working in the woodland.

- To access the upper eastern area of Faraway Tree Wood continue to the top of the main track where you will see a ‘woodlands for sale’ sign on your right. Just before this sign there is a track on your right that heads up through the trees and takes you to the upper, eastern track.

- Turn right at the top of this track and continue along for around 200 metres and you will see Faraway Tree Wood on both sides of the track and a parking area on the left identified by a 'Faraway Tree Wood' name sign.
