With direct frontage to the A26, access is quick and easy, and a track runs along the eastern boundary where there is a right of way for vehicles. The track belongs to the RSPB but gives access to Conegar Wood. In some places the rhododendron is very thick and while this does give privacy and shelter it is important not to let it spread into the reserve. The present owners have cut it back with this in mind. Behind this is chestnut coppice and lots of open areas. Plenty of bluebells in spring.

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.
Lots of good chestnut coppice, plenty of silver birch, mature oak is spread throughout with hazel and rhododenron below. A lone larch, an old yew, a large fir and the occasional beech are also found.
The woodland is part of the much larger Eridge Warren and Broadwater Forest and is designated as a County Wildlife Site, CLICK here for details.
Having a woodland next to a reserve is most conservationists aspiration. Lots bluebells in spring.
There is an approved woodland management plan in place, a copy can be provided. A felling licence for thinning is included. The management plan is not mandatory.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Access is directly off the A26 along a woodland track where there is a right of way for forestry purposes. There are no public footpaths.
Rights and covenants
There is a right of way for vehicles along the track bordering the eastern boundary X-Y at all times for forestry purposes.
Being situated in a county wildlife site and next to a RSPB reserve most activity would be best directed to ensuring wildlife can thrive.
Local area and history
The local area is dominated by the Eridge Estate, home of the Abergavennys, its history and that of Eridge Warren can be read by clicking HERE. The reference to Warren and the wood name have connotations of rabbits and warren for the soil is sandy and the vegetation was heathland.
These are the roadside and tracksides where shown with orange markings mostly on trackside trees. There are orange stakes along the straight south east boundary.
