SOLD: Stirling Wood £39,000 Freehold

  • Stewkley, Leighton Buzzard, Buckinghamshire
  • about 3 ½ acres
  • East Anglia


Stirling Wood provides a perfect opportunity to shape and create a classical English woodland sancturary. The foundations are in place, planted between 1996 and 1998 it has grown exceptionally well. Cherry, sweet chestnut and ash make up much of the woodland whilst scattered amongst them are silver birch, alder, field maple and hawthorn. As it's a young woodland there will be many opportunities such as thinning some of the trees in the future which will create a valuable source of firewood.

In contrast to the wooded area, located under a power line is an attractive glade, this provides an opportunity for wild flowers and grasses to establish. To the side of the glade a large wild rose grows and produces both rose hips in autumn and blooms in summer. The hawthorn and cherry bloom in early April bringing the first sign of spring after a long winter.

A bench has been placed on the edge of a ride, please do take some time to sit and enjoy the surroundings whilst listening to the numerous birds that fill the air with their chatter. You may also see a muntjac or roe deer if you sit quietly. A number of well established deer racks or paths meander through the woodland.

The woodland feels wonderfully secluded as it is located within a larger area of woodland known as Graces Farm Wood. This wood is now all privately owned so you are safe in the knowledge knowing everyone has signed up to the woodlands covenant.

Accessed via a good forest ride that is well drained for most of the year. In the winter the owner can park by the gate near the highway and walk the short way down to Stirling Wood. Full vehicular access is given with the woodland.

The woodland is named after the Short Stirling Mark III heavy bomber a number of squadrons were based in Buckinghamshire during the war.

The woodland is easily found. Located just off Dunton Road in the village of Stewkley and being under six miles from the centre of Leighton Buzzard and ten miles from Aylesbury it has great possibilities for anyone looking for a country retreat.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Matt Marples

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.
