Hatherland Wood, Devon - Nearly 3 ½ acres, £39,000

Hatherland Wood

Set in an attractive valley in the heart of mid-Devon this broadleaved woodland is predominantly oak. Oak provides a habitat rich in biodiversity and supports more life forms than any other of our native trees. The nooks and crannies of ancient oaks are perfect habitats for nesting birds, whilst bats take advantage of old woodpecker holes for roosting. Further down the food chain numerous insects are a food supply for many woodland birds.

In the autumn the acorns drop to the ground and are soon consumed by deer, badgers and squirrels. The leaves drift to the ground and begin to compost down creating plenty of nutrients for the woodland ground flora and a habitat for beetles and fungi.

The mighty oak tree is highly regarded around the world, especially within Europe and the United States of America. In 2004 the United States Congress legally designated the oak tree as America's National Tree. Many other countries have designated types of oak as their National tree including England, Wales, Germany, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Jordan and Estonia, whose National coat of arms includes oak leaves.

A bench has been placed near a free flowing stream in the northern section of the woodland, please do take some time to sit here and take in the atmosphere. The southern section has a level area which would be ideal for camping. The woodland bursts into life in spring, delicious bilberries adorn the woodland floor and the overhead canopy starts to close in creating a wonderful atmosphere.

The woodland is named after a special area of local moorland that is steeped in history with many old features. The name 'Hatherland' is said to be derived either for the middle English for Heather or indeed Hawtorn, of which you may find a few examples within the woodland. The woodland setting is so peaceful and quiet yet its convenient location means it is only a 5 minute drive from the main link road of North Devon, the A361. Access to the wood is via a stoned forestry track and there is a parking area near the entrance of Hatherland Wood.

Not far away is the rugged and stunning north Devon coast with its popular surfing beaches of Croyde or Woolacombe, and Westward Ho! is within a 45 minute drive. Also Exmoor National Park offers fantastic walking and cycling opportunities and is only about 10 miles from the woodland. 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.
