Hairstreak Wood - SOLD, Nottinghamshire - About 3 ½ acres, £49,000

Hairstreak Wood - SOLD
Hairstreak Wood - SOLD
Nottinghamshire

A very attractive and useful combination of woodland and meadow with diverse wildlife. A peaceful and secluded part of Cotgrave Forest, ideal for conservation and camping.

Hairstreak Wood is planted with well-spaced Corsican and Scots pine and the wood feels light and airy. This means a good deal of light reaches the forest floor and self-seeded trees such as oak, willow, sycamore and wych elm are creating a good understorey.

At ground level there are plenty of ferns and bramble patches crop up here and there, in some lighter areas, they bear fruit and the blackberries are eternally popular with wildlife as well as woodland owners, in late summer. Thorn bushes such as hawthorn and blackthorn are found, particularly around the perimeter of the wood and provide extra berries and protected nesting sites for birds.

A meadow forms a 30 metre wide strip at the northern edge of the land and in it grows a wide variety of grasses and wildflowers. It is a really excellent place to spot a huge range of different butterflies (the wood takes its name from one group – the white letter hairstreak caterpillars feed on elm leaves) as well as bees and other invertebrates

Wildlife

There is a wealth of wildlife within the wood too. Woodland birds and mammals are evident from their tracks signs and calls and it would be interesting to put up trail cameras to see who is visiting.

Features

An area of meadow surrounded by hedges, where an oak bench is located is the perfect spot to soak in the sun, sights and sounds of this special place.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The wood is reached via a solid stone track which leads to the ride-stop entrance. The meadow can be reached along a grassy ride, or on foot through the wood.

Rights and covenants

Shooting rights are included.

There are no public rights of way within, or adjacent to, Hairstreak Wood.

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.

Activities

A peaceful and secluded wood where the new owner could spend their days surrounded by nature. Making the most of quality time with family and friends around the campfire or working on conservation projects, such as putting up bird and bat boxes or carrying out thinning and new tree-planting to add to the diversity of the wood.

Local area and history

The local area is famed for is well regarded Stilton cheese. First recognised as a type of cheese at the beginning of the eighteenth century, it was given its name by the village of Stilton, near Peterborough, where it was first made and traded.
