Gwynn's Wood, Herefordshire - About 5¼ acres, £65,000

Gwynn's Wood

Gwynn's Wood is named for Nell Gwynn who (although some dispute this fact..!) was born in nearby Hereford. It may be too much to claim this woodland has her wit but it certainly has her beauty, with a great number of statuesque and venerable oaks, amongst other mature broadleaf specimens, ash, sycamore and chestnut. The history of the larger woodland Coldborough Park, of which Gwynn's Wood is a part, can be traced back to the Domesday Book of 1086 AD and it was managed as coppice with standards for much of the medieval period. The area of the woodland now known as Gwynn's Wood is noted as still being coppiced woodland on a parish map of the 1830's, then owned by Lord Ashburton, which provides some interesting lineage and the oaks present there now are estimated to have been planted in the 1880's.

Following the well made stoned track down from the main entrance gate you will come to the gravelled parking area for Gwynn's Wood at the end of the track on your right. From this area, useful for parking or stacking timber, the land slopes up gently on all sides.

The mature deciduous trees are widely spaced allowing a good deal of light to filter through the woodland. The forest floor is well populated by various wildflowers, herb robert, oxalis, wood anenome, saxifrage and woodruff, and is thick with native bluebells in the spring - a beautiful sight.

Cutting through the woodland are some small springs and there is a damp boggy area in the eastern part of the woodland, fairly close to the boundary with the neighbouring Woodhouse Wood, which could be dug out further to create a woodland pond or just left as a valuable habitat for damp loving woodland plants and birds.

A good sized ditch forms the northern boundary with adjoining woodland, draining into a stream which runs from about half way along the boundary, and continues along and under the track.

A survey of the woodland carried out by the previous owners identified several interesting bird species including wood warblers, the lesser redpoll, spotted woodpeckers and marsh tits and found that conditions were suitable for the nesting of nightingales. There is evidence of deer in the vicinity and in the woodland itself, and with luck, or patience, you may see family groups of half a dozen or more deer passing through the wood. Other wildlife is much encouraged by the presence of springs and the great variety of plant species including holly and hazel which thrive in a broadleaf woodland such as this.

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.
