Angram Cote Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Just under 4 acres, £59,000

Angram Cote Wood - SOLD
Angram Cote Wood - SOLD
North Yorkshire

Situated in the Yorkshire Dales close to Wensleydale, with woodland on three sides and far-reaching views over heather moorland, Angram Cote Wood is secluded and feels peaceful and serene.

This tranquil wood is planted with conifers such as larch, pine and spruce but thankfully many fragments of the old oak woodland remain. Old and characterful oaks are growing in clearings and there’s plenty of space for future tree planting here too.

Larch, the UK's only deciduous conifer, puts on a great autumnal show of colour just before the needles are shed, creating lots of light into the woodland. In spring, the freshly grown and bright green needles are fragrant and also make for a pleasant infusion – a refreshing woodland cuppa. Other softwoods growing include spruce and pine and there is a good volume of growing timber that would amply sustain a domestic wood stove.

Birdlife within Angram Cote Wood and the wider wood is rich and diverse. Pheasants and grouse can be seen quite often, along with many smaller woodland birds such as goldcrests and tits. Woodpeckers are also frequent visitors.

A bench is located a short walk from the ridestop entrance. It overlooks a characterful group of old oaks and is a great place to observe passing wildlife or enjoy a picnic.

Located nearby, the busy Dales market town of Masham is an important local hub. The present square with its beautiful Georgian houses was created in the 18th century. The huge market place would originally have been surrounded by thatched cottages and was the site for annual Sheep Fairs with over 80,000 heads of sheep being sold some years, including animals from the flocks of nearby Fountains and Jervaulx Abbeys. The sheep fairs Masham continue to this day, but are now smaller affairs and a Steam Engine and Fair Organ Rally is held annually too.

Angram Cote Wood is named after the nearby Ellingstring farm that was farmed by the Wensleydale family the Vayro's from 1808 to 1960. Prior to this the Pickersgill family lived here and a Robert Plews married into the family in 1726, shortly before he was 'transported' to America in the same year: with or without his new wife Elisabeth we can only wonder?

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.
