Wheel Wood - SOLD, East Sussex - 10 ½ acres, £75,000

Wheel Wood - SOLD

As soon as you walk into Wheel Wood, you are surrounded by 40 year old well-spaced towering Corsican Pine. As you walk along the track inside the wood it slopes gently down, leading to an area of broadleaf trees, mostly chestnut and birch. Throughout much of the wood there is also a sprinkling of young birch and chestnut in the understorey, and bracken emerges profusely in late spring, providing local wildlife, including deer, with excellent cover. You may well hear birds that favour pine, such as crossbills, siskins, redpolls and gold-crest, accompanied by the call of sparrow-hawks wheeling above the woods, and the nearby meadows.

As owner you may decide to gradually create more clearings. This would allow each pine tree to have more sunlight. The clearings could be useful for picnics or camping. The trees you remove would be a good source of wood fuel for your own home.

From the public road, vehicle access for the owner of Wheel Wood is through a locked gate and along a stone and tarmac byway, and then through another locked gate and along a stoned track to the wood. All parts of the wood are readily accessed with tracks on three sides. These tracks bring the additional benefit of allowing lots of light into the wood.

Wheel Wood lies within Limekiln and Park Woods which is a large woodland area in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In the late 19th century nearby Crowborough was promoted as a health resort based on its high elevation, the rolling hills and surrounding forest, indeed it became locally known as "Scotland in Sussex". Just a short distance away is Bowles Outdoor Centre.

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.

  • Price: £75,000 Freehold
  • Location: near Crowborough, East Sussex
  • Size: 10 ½ acres for sale


The boundaries of the wood are indicated with Orange markings.
