Mid Pullens Wood - SOLD, Kent - 5 acres, £69,000

Mid Pullens Wood - SOLD
Mid Pullens Wood - SOLD
Kent

An attractive ancient wood, well-suited to someone new to woodland management - incredibly varied, packed with wildlife, private and accessible and featuring a pond.

Mid Pullens Wood is a remarkably varied ancient woodland featuring a delightful pond and a good network of internal rides. It is surrounded by woods and countryside with wonderful views over the hop garden to the north west. It lies within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The south east of the wood is flat and comprises well-spaced mature Scots pine planted approx. 50 years ago. It has been gradually thinned to remove the conifer in favour of the mature oaks and beech. Here a sizeable pond is found which provides a source of water for a variety of wildlife.

In the centre of the wood there is an area of semi-mature mixed broadleaf plantation, planted after the 1987 storm. Here there is naturally regenerating pine, birch, hazel and ash. Further thinning would encourage the stronger trees to flourish.

The wood slopes towards the stream in the north west (which lies just outside of the boundary) and here a mature beech plantation is found, along with many mature oaks, as well as hazel and birch. Mixed broadleaves, including mature hornbeam are found along the stream boundary and provide privacy from the hop garden. Further along the private track running parallel to the stream in the north of the wood there is a lovely quiet spot to set up a family camp. A bench has been installed amongst the splendid beech and oaks.

Mid Pullens Wood has been designated as an Ancient Replanted Woodland (PAWS) by Natural England. This land has been wooded since at least 1600AD. It is noted in the management plan that part of the wood has mostly been restored to native mixed broadleaves and the remainder of the wood has been thinned over recent years reducing the conifer canopy.

As well as offering plenty for those new to woodland management, Mid Pullens Wood offers a lot for those keen on wildlife. Deer have been spotted in the wood as well as spotted fly catchers, marsh tit and redwings all within the local area. Wildflowers emerge in the spring - a carpet of bugles appear along the open rides attracting bees and butterflies alike, and there are primroses found within the wood.

Mid Pullens Wood is particularly convenient to the A21 and has superb access - a double metal gate entrance set back from the Lamberhurst Road, leads to a timber stacking area which is shared with other owners. From here the stoned track leads south west to the entrance of Mid Pullens Wood. Here you will find a ride stop entrance, where an owner can drive in and park. This stoned track provides a right of way to West Pullens Wood, which also has its own private gate off Tong Lane. There are no public footpaths within or alongside Pullens Wood (of which Mid Pullens Wood is a part) and the wood feels extremely private.

The Management Plan for this wood has been written by a qualified and experienced forestry professional to indicate a way in which Pullens Wood (of which Mid Pullens Wood is a part) as a whole might be managed, but only you can know what you want to achieve and what your resources are. The Management Plan is not mandatory, but it is full of good advice, and a lot of background information which will certainly be interesting and useful. Please bear in mind that not everything in it applies to the area of Pullens Wood which is Mid Pullens Wood.

For those who like water, Bewl Water is less than 4 miles away. Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest is approx. 6 miles offering lots of healthy outdoor activities including family cycling and mountain-biking, walking, and running trails, as well as a tree top adventure. Tunbridge Wells is approximately 8 miles.

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.
