Red Wood £99,000 Freehold

  • Foxhall, Ipswich, Suffolk
  • about 5 ½ acres
  • East Anglia


Red Wood is part of a large unspoilt area of woodland in Suffolk where private ownership by woodland enthusiasts can ensure the ongoing protection of this woodland and provide enjoyment for generations to come.

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.


Red Wood holds a good variety of English broadleaf trees. Oak and sweet chestnut dominate whilst silver birch forms the mainstay of the younger trees. The woodland has a truly natural feel and would be perfect for anyone looking to re-establish some light coppicing.


On our first visit to the woodland a young red deer stag stood bathed in the morning sunlight. It had just retreated into the depths of the woodland after a night feeding on the surrounding fields of sugar beet.

Many other woodland creatures can be found here including badgers, foxes and squirrels to name but a few. Whilst the trees above host a large variety of birdlife.


The woodland is gently sloping with a number of open glades. Bracken fills the wood floor in summer providing privacy and cover from the outside world.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The woodland has the benefit of an excellent stoned access track suitable for most family vehicles providing all year access to the woodland.

The woodland is subject to an overage agreement to deter development and add another layer of protection to the woodland.

There are no public footpaths running through the wood.


A great family wood, good for camping and numerous outdoor activities. Amazing childhood adventures could take place within this woodland.

For those seeking a tranquil retreat the simple experience of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature around you whilst breathing deeply. Perhaps the ultimate post Covid remedy.
