SOLD: Kelsall Wood £65,000 Freehold


Kelsall Wood is a rarity to be offered for sale in Cheshire: a small and manageable woodland with a mixture of conifer and broadleaf trees, as well as a quarry that offers a wonderful area of seclusion within the woodland. Access is directly off a minor country road through a new wooden gate, and there is enough room to park off the road in front of the gate.

The woodland is quite open, with a number of natural clearings, which could be useful for camping, and as a base for woodland activities. The quarry is an ideal area for such activities, as it gives you the most privacy in the woodland. In the quarry you’ll find a lovely handmade bench, this spot gives you a wide view of the quarry and enables you to take in the scenery. The quarry dates back to the 19th century and hasn’t been used since. Even though the woodland is quite open in parts, the area around the quarry has a hugely different feel, with the area above having quite dense conifers. This adds variety to the woodland and also shows what the potential for the rest of the woodland could be.

It’s possible to drive into the wood, although it’s only really feasible to do so in a four wheel-drive vehicle at the moment. However, it would be relatively easy to level off the entrance and make it suitable for an ordinary car.

The small village of Kelsall is located about a mile away. There you'll find a couple of very attractive pubs, including the Royal Oak and The Morris Dancer, a Co-op and a medical centre. The nearby village of Ashton Hayes is a community of about 1000 people that is aiming to become England's first carbon neutral community. Eddisbury Iron Age hill fort is just a couple of miles walk away.

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.
