Hooken Wood - SOLD, Devon - Nearly 3 acres, £35,000

Hooken Wood - SOLD

Hooken Wood is a fine mixed woodland located in a desirable area of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The locality has a mild climate with plenty of summer warmth, and fertile agricultural soils. The woodland also benefits from good shelter at around 400-550 feet above sea level.

An abundance of wild flowers adorns the woodland floor that includes wood sorrel, bluebells, dog's mercury, wild garlic and water mint. Diversity of plants comes from the mixed habitat found within Hooken Wood. This really is a rare mix of habitats and provides perfect living conditions for numerous wild plants and animals. There are areas of wetter woodland that are fragranced by water mint and are suited for the creation for a small wildlife pond. Frogs thrive in this part of the woodland and dragonflies and damselflies dance around the plants in the summer months.

At the woodland entrance is a sheltered area of conifer trees. These are spruce trees and were planted in 1986. They are growing well and can be used for various forestry projects. This area is ideally suited as a camping area. There is another area of similarly aged spruce in the eastern section. Whilst other parts of the woodland have mature broadleaved trees that include oak, ash, birch, hazel and sycamore.

The woodland is named after a local cliff, Hooken Cliff which is renowned as a superb area for finding fossils. The beauty of Hooken Wood is that fossils have been found within the woodland and the surroundings.

Hooken Wood is accessed from the A3052 via a metalled track and once inside the main wood a good forestry track, suitable for most family vehicles. The local area is very peaceful and has plenty of quiet lanes for country walking.

A network of footpaths connect to the nearby coastline around Seaton and Sidmouth and the beginning of the World Heritage Site. This consists of 95 miles of Jurassic coastline beginning at the nearby Orcombe point

A thriving, local small scale fishing industry is based along this section of coastline with day boats catching fish and crabs. The bass fishery attracts many anglers in season and there are a number of chartered fishing trips available.

Please do enjoy your visit to Hooken Wood, but take care of any undulating ground or trip hazards as well as standing or leaning deadwood which has been left as a wildlife habitat. It is recommended to wear wellington boots on your first visit until you establish where tracks are through the woodland.
