Waddesdon Wood - SOLD, Buckinghamshire - About 2 ⅔ acres, £35,000

Waddesdon Wood - SOLD

Waddesdon 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. Oaks, 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. Whilst making a small glade would allow sedges and grass to get a foothold creating a more diverse habitat.

A bench has been paced on the ride edge, 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.

The woodland feels wonderfully secluded as it is located within a larger woodland known as Graces Farm Wood. The wood derived its name from nearby Waddesdon Manor, a local stately home in the located in Waddesdon village. The house was built in 1874 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild. (1839–1898) as a weekend residence for grand entertaining.

The last member of the Rothschild family to own Waddesdon was James de Rothschild (1878–1957). He bequeathed the house and its contents to the National Trust. It is one of the National Trust's most visited properties, with over 390,000 visitors annually. Waddesdon Manor won Visit England's Large Visitor Attraction of the Year category in 2017.
