SOLD: Three Bares Wood £32,000 Freehold

  • Near Stoodleigh, Tiverton, Devon
  • about 2 ¾ acres
  • Devon


Three Bares Wood is a fine mixed woodland with good access and well spaced trees giving an open and spacious feel.

Three Bares Wood has two distinct areas either side of the access track. To the eastern side of the track is an open area of larch with an edge of broadleaved trees and an old Devon hedge with hazel, hawthorn and blackthorn. Here there are clearings suited for creating a camping area and fine views over the adjoining pasture fields. This is a fantastic area for watching deer as they like to graze in these fields. Both red and roe deer are frequent visitors.

To the west of the track is an area of spruce trees which are well spaced letting in plenty of light and allow good access between the trees. The sunny glades here allow butterflies such as the Speckled Wood to thrive. Bird life is abundant with green woodpeckers, greater spotted woodpeckers and the colourful jay being a few of many species to frequent the area.

Three Bares Wood takes its name from the valley on which it is situated known as Bareshill. The name has since been tweaked to Three Bares Wood as the previous owners children used to play in an old forestry store which was once sited here, the children named it Three Bares Hut. We can just imagine what fun the children would have had with this as their playground.

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.
