Teviotdale Wood - SOLD, Roxburghshire - Nearly 5 ¾ acres, £45,000

Teviotdale Wood - SOLD

Teviotdale wood takes its name from the river which flows in the valley in which it is located. At the furthest reaches of the whole wood, it enjoys commanding views of the surrounding hills.

This is a wood of two parts divided roughly across the middle by a well made track. Although greened over, it is well built of stone and with a little use the wheelings will soon reappear.

To the north of the track is a spruce plantation bisected by a seasonally flowing drainage channel. Although the spruce is dense, internal paths have been cut to give access to the heart of the wood. Along the track side and the bottom fence, sensitive planting of oak, rowan and ash give a very pleasant feel and an indication of what might be achieved with the further introduction of suitable broadleaf species. To the south, the trees have been harvested and replanted. The sudden influx of light has led to an explosive and delightful new growth of plant species. Rosebay willow herb is an early coloniser giving a lovely splash of colour and later in the year, a welcome harvest of seeds for goldfinches and other seed eating birds. Fox glove, raspberry, sow thistle and meadow sweet are also present in profusion and are welcome additions to the flora habitat.

Fast growing tree species such as willow and hazel have also taken hold and are now supporting their share of birds and invertebrates. Come late summer and autumn, the dense mat of needle beneath the trees is pierced by fungi, the fruiting bodies of the mycelium beneath.

With its open aspect and emergent diversity, Teviotdale would be an excellent base for woodland conservation. With good access from the highway and several flat, dry areas, an overnight camping stop is almost a necessity.

Local area: Hawick, meaning entrenched settlement, is the nearest town and is right in the heart of reiver country. Once well known for lawlessness and cattle stealing it is now a pleasant market town with plenty to offer including numerous B&B’s.

At the back of the larger woodland is a strange, pointed stone structure. This is the memorial to Henry Scott Riddell, poet and songwriter who lived nearby in Teviothead.

Sporting rights: These are owned and included with the land.

Access: An unlocked gateway leads off a quiet country lane along a solid track, where there is a full right of way (suitable for most cars) to the woodland entrance. A locked gate leads to a central track up to the Teviotdale entrance with a further track, internal paths, clearings, a timber stacking area and vehicle turning point.

There is a growing interest in hut, bothy and temporary shelter building, especially in Scotland; for those interested in erecting a hut or shelter, here is some interesting and very helpful guidance from Reforesting Scotland’s Thousand Hut Campaign. Your Local Planning Authority should also be consulted.

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.

Directions

Teviotdale Wood is well connected via the scenic A7 and is around 35 miles north of Carlisle, 15 miles north of Langholm and 10 miles south of Hawick.

To get to the woodland simply drive along the A7 to the postcode of TD9 0LG near the small village of Teviothead.

At the sign to Falnash near the Armstrong Johnnie Gallery cross the River Teviot using the temporary bridge and take an immediate right once over the bridge.

Follow the track to just before the closed farm gate with cattlegrid and park safely at the small junction on the left.

Proceed on foot through the farm gate (remembering to close it after you) and walk along the track beside the river. Continue along this track through an open gateway up to the locked woodland gate.

(Dog owners will note that a dog friendly stile has been provided at the entrance to the woodlands. All dogs should be on a lead when walking through the sheep fields.)

Climb carefully over the stile and continue walking along the track for about 500m where you will find the entrance to Teviotdale Wood directly ahead of you.

A key to the locked gate will be provided upon purchase of the woodland and a right of way will allow you to drive all the way to your woodland.

Boundaries:

The boundaries are marked on all sides by fence posts with orange painted tops.
