Horse Garth Wood - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Just over 4 ¼ acres, £39,000

Horse Garth Wood - SOLD
Horse Garth Wood - SOLD
North Yorkshire

A peaceful and accessible mixed woodland with beautiful bluebells in Spring: a real wildlife haven.

Horse Garth Wood is a very desirable woodland and will certainly tick the boxes for many prospective woodland owners. There is a very good route to the wood along a stone track that brings you to the centre of the southern boundary. From here, a grassy ride continues through the middle of the wood to the northern edge, full of wildflowers such as bugle and hypericum, primroses and ferns.

Taking a route into the eastern half of the wood, the visitor will see that it is mostly beech and Scots pine trees with some sycamore and other native broadleaved trees dotted throughout. A clearer area here might be good for a basecamp as there is discrete privacy from the track and a bench is located overlooking the beech glade.

Following one of the paths towards the northern edge, illuminated by sunlight falling on the meadow beyond the boundary, signs of the extensive and varied wildlife are everywhere. You may hear the call of buzzards or smaller woodland birds and an animal track is clearly visible running along the length of the northern boundary, just inside the wood. This leads back, across the head of the grassy ride into the western half of the wood, crossing an area clearly used by transiting badgers.

Ancient woodland indicators are easy to spot, from the huge ferns to the masses of bluebells and sweet honeysuckle sending out tendrils to find a host tree, upon which it will hitch a ride up towards the sunlight. In this western part of the wood, there are quite a few oak trees, of varying ages, also relics of the ancient forest, now growing well alongside the Scots pine, straight and tall and of a good size.

Horse Garth Wood takes its name from a group of field enclosures, just to the north, clearly named on a fascinating 1794 map of the wood which can be shared with the new owner, along with survey information and interesting management advice from the Woodland Trust.

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.
