Three Bares Wood, Devon - About 2 ¾ acres, £32,000

Three Bares Wood

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.

- Take this turn onto a private drive belonging to Lower Dryhill where there is an access over into the woodland. Drive very carefully down the stoned track bearing in mind that children or dogs may be on the track. Please do not drive on the grass. If you meet another vehicle then please reverse back rather than going onto the grass banks.

- After around 200 metres you will see the main woodland entrance gate in front of you with a ‘woodlands for sale’ sign just beyond it.

- Head through the gate and turn right, either park here and walk to the wood by immediately taking the track on the left winding up through the trees or drive if you have a suitable vehicle, 4x4 recommended.

- Continue on the main woodland track for around 400 metres where you will see the Three Bares Wood name sign on your left. Park just beyond the sign on the right hand side of the track. There is a turning area at the end of the track.

- Three Bares Wood is either side of the track.
