Camdore Wood - SOLD, Herefordshire - 5¼ acres, £85,000

Camdore Wood - SOLD
Camdore Wood - SOLD
Herefordshire

A corner of ancient woodland with a pretty stream, in rolling historic Herefordshire countryside.

Ancient semi natural woodland, level ground, a track you could land a plane on (not really..) and a stream and all this in the beautiful surroundings of the Herefordshire borderlands, near the river Monnow which marks the boundary between England and God's Own Country. This may just be the perfect woodland !

Trees

Having been established for at least 400 years there is a great bank of biodiversity built up in Camdore Wood. Standing tall are some wonderful veteran oak, still probably only half way through their life cycle, and amongst them ash, birch and wych elm along with an understory of alder and hazel. Some past coppicing of the alder and hazel is evident, a practice which is happily coming back into use with the growing awareness of how beneficial it is to the plant biodiversity of a woodland, encouraging wildlife and providing useful timber products which can bring some revenue back into the woodland pocket.

Wildlife

All sorts of wildlife will be thronging this woodland, with its ancient woodland status and the stream, colonies of creatures will be well established taking advantage of the beneficial habitat.

Tawny owls are known to inhabit the larger woodland of which Camore wood is a part, which would indicate a healthy population of small mammals to keep them and their brood fully fed.

Deer spoor has been seen throughout the woodland, and there have been sightings of fallow deer and a muntjac.

Features

A stream runs on an east / west axis through the southern part of the woodland.

Access, tracks and footpaths

There is an excellent track giving access to Camdore Wood from the main entrance gate which opens directly off the minor public road, meaning that 2 wheel drive access is possible all year round.

There are no public footpaths running through Camdore Wood or the larger woodland.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

Nearby Kentchurch Court is a stately home, in the Scudamore family for nearly 1000 years, with much fascinating history - Owain Glyndwr, the last Prince of Wales, is said to have taken refuge here after his rebellion was finally suppressed by the English in the early 15th C. His daughter, Alice was married to John Scudamore.

Woodcarvings by the genius Grinling Gibbons are displayed in the house and beyond the beautiful gardens, in the deer park, which belonged originally to the Knights Templar, can be found Jack of Kent's Oak Tree, an ancient oak with an impressively well rounded circumference measuring 11.3m !

On the other side of Camdore wood, to the east, the pretty church of Orcop has an unusual tower, the lower level of which is supported on four enormous oak trunks acting as beams. Who knows if perhaps they originated from Camdore Wood...
