Gosford Wood, Suffolk - Nearly 3 acres, £39,000

Gosford Wood

Gosford Wood forms part of a much larger woodland known as Titsall wood. The woodland is set in a picturesque location to the west of the village of Shadingfield. The woodland gets its name from The Earl of Gosford which is a title in the Peerage created in 1806 for Arthur Acheson, 2nd Viscount Gosford. the local landowner. Woodland has probably been on this land since then offering fuel for heating and cover for game and wildlife.

Accessed via a private farm track suitable for most vehicles. At the entrance to the main woodland an area has been created for owners to park at wet times of the year. Its then a short walk up a gentle slope to the woodland. In summer months it will be possible to drive to Gosford Wood.

The wood is amazingly tranquil, anyone looking to find peace and quiet would be hard pressed to beat this location.

The woodland is predominantly hornbeam coppice, it has deemed such a good example of Suffolk hornbeam coppice it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and any future owner has the advantage of not only the protection this offers but free advice and guidance from Natural England. Adding variety are a number of ancient oaks and ash trees.

A seasonal pond is found in the southern corner of the woodland. This may have been much deeper in the past and could be re-established to create a wet habitat.

Open fields surround the north eastern sides of the wood, thus wood is bathed in light for much of the day. The woodland is relatively flat and there are plenty of areas to set up campor picnic.

The understorey offers lots of cover for wildlife with well established areas of bramble. A vast array of wildlife, from woodcocks who over-winter and pheasants, to hares and deer share this habitat. Three species of deer are present in the woodland, Chinese water deer, Muntjac and fallow.

The nearby village of Shadingfield has an excellent farm shop and a number of pubs are within cycling distance. Located about one hour's drive from both Ipswich and Norwich and being only a short drive from the town of Beccles the woodland is easily accessible offering anyone a perfect rural retreat from the hustle of modern day living.
