Woodhouse Plantation - SOLD, North Yorkshire - Nearly 4 ¼ acres, £69,000

Woodhouse Plantation - SOLD
Woodhouse Plantation - SOLD
North Yorkshire

A delightful mixed woodland on a planted ancient woodland site, Woodhouse Plantation is full of wildlife.

A good sound track leads from the main gated entrance near the beck, to the ride-stop on the eastern boundary of Woodhouse Plantation.

The wood contains a good many straight grown Scots pine trees, well-spaced and around 50 years old. There are a few other conifers too, such a spruces but there are also a good number of deciduous trees, including oak, birch, sycamore, ash, willow cherry, rowan and coppiced hazel. At ground level, there are many bluebells and other wildflowers such as honeysuckle, stitchwort, bugle and foxgloves as well as ferns, bracken and blackberry.

Home to a fantastic diversity of wildlife, bird song envelopes the visitor on arrival in the wood, especially in Spring-time. Animal tracks criss-cross through the trees, some routes quite established, perhaps a good spot for a trail camera? In addition to these, a cleared route runs from the ride-stop, heading in a north-west direction emerging at a bracken filled clearing beneath pines, next to a fallen rowan tree. A bench is located here with views out west through the boundary across the pasture-land, a great spot to catch evening sunshine and listen to tawny owls calling.

Along the western boundary of the wood, a narrow path flanked by bluebells, follows this boundary north-south, passing small groves of aspen, oak, ancient willows, cherries and crab apple tree, all of which thrive in the sunlight at the woodland edge.

The wood derives its name from Woodhouse Farm, an attractive neighbouring property which can be seen to the west, now part of the Escrick Estate. The neighbouring village of Escrick is thought to be the combination of ‘eski’, the Old Norse for a place with ash trees, and ‘ric’, Old English for a raised, straight strip or ridge. In the Domesday Book of 1086, Escrick appears as Escric. The ridge describes the glacial moraine that was deposited as the last ice age retreated and upon which the village is now located.

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.
