Stage Wood - SOLD
Stage Wood - SOLD
Kent

Featuring a very attractive stream and with a wide variety of conifer and broadleaf, Stage Wood has lots to offer a woodland owner. Unusual 360 degree film of Stage Wood below...

Stage Wood is a delightful wood which features a perennial stream providing a constant source of water for flora and fauna. Tucked away at the end of a stoned track in the south of a larger wood known as Horse Pasture Wood, Stage Wood is quiet and private. The ride stop entrance allows an owner to park their car well within the wood itself. It is an extremely varied wood with lots to offer those new to woodlands and seasoned woodland managers alike.

The north east of the wood is mixed conifer – with Norway spruce, sitka spruce and western hemlock. As the wood slopes down to the stream and across to the private track there is an area of mixed broadleaf where ash, alder, mature poplar, oak and birch are found. To the west of the track is an area of Scots pine and more mixed broadleaf including sweet chestnut, oak, cherry, beech, hazel and a lot of naturally regenerating birch. The ground flora is in areas dominated by bracken and bramble. There is a natural sunny clearing amongst the Scots pine where wild cherry have matured. Along the southern boundary of the wood there are mature beech, hornbeam, holly, mountain ash and hazel. There is a short section of public footpath running just within the eastern boundary of the wood. The walkers keep a regular eye on the woods and respect the paths accordingly. The footpath that runs along the north and west boundaries are outside of Stage Wood.

The woods attract plenty of wildlife, buzzards have been spotted overhead and green woodpeckers have been heard in the woods. Numerous butterfly species have been spotted including meadow browns, fritillaries, speckled woods and whites.

Natural England designates the west area and a small area in the north east of Stage Wood as Ancient Replanted Woodland (PAWS) and the east of the wood as Ancient and Semi-Natural Woodland. This land has been wooded since at least 1600AD. Stage Wood is within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

We are fortunate to have two useful studies, which were undertaken by professionals. The Management Plan has been written by a qualified and experienced forestry professional to indicate a way in which Horse Pasture Wood (of which Stage Wood is a small 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. We also have a report from our Professional Adviser Prof. Julian Evans, author of “Getting Started in a Wood of Your Own”. The report covers the wider area of Horse Pasture Wood and again, advice is not compulsory. Please bear in mind that not everything in either of them applies to the particular area of Horse Pasture Wood which is Stage Wood.

The town of Royal Tunbridge Wells is approximately 4.5 miles away. A short walk from the town centre is Dunorlan Park, a Grade II listed park offering 78 acre gardens which include a Grecian Temple and ornamental Fountain. For those seeking adventure on water, a little further away (approximately 10 miles) is Bewl Water, which is the largest stretch of open water in the South East, offering fishing, cycling and boating.

Stage Wood has recently been named after a type of horse-drawn vehicle.

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.

Maps

Directions

Please note, for satellite navigation, use the post code TN2 4AG. This will take you to within approx. ⅓ mile of Horse Pasture Wood as shown by the red dot on the map. Coordinates to the main entrance gate on the A228 are: N51.163829, E0.346891. To find the wood follow the instructions below.

  • From the A21 at Pembury go north along the A228 approximately 2.5 miles towards Paddock Wood.
  • The post code will take you to a turning leading to a property on the A228 which is to the south of the track off the A228 that leads to Horse Pasture Wood. Go past this turning and approximately 300 meters further along the A228 (past a second turning on the right with a sign for ‘Hawkwell Business Centre’) you will find a third turning on the right-hand side. There is a ‘Woodlands For Sale’ sign here. This is the concrete laid track that leads to the wood.
  • Park to the side outside the entrance gate so as not to block the gate. (This gate is not always closed but to avoid getting locked in, please leave your vehicle here. It is suggested if possible, to turn your vehicle around to enable you to turn back out onto the A228 OR alternatively please phone 07812 165081 for the combination number). Walk down the concrete track approximately 500 meters. You will come to a water treatment plant and a single locked metal gate straight ahead of you with a ‘Woodlands for Sale’ sign on it.
  • Walk past the gate that is the entrance to the stoned track that leads to Stage Wood following it on the right fork. Walk approximately 350 meters down the track and you will find a cross roads in the track / footpaths. Straight ahead is the ride stop entrance, together with the Stage Wood sign – this is the entrance to Stage Wood with its boundary marked in ORANGE.
  • Sat Nav note: The post code TN2 4AG is for the point shown on the location map by the red dot which is further south along the A228.
