4.5 acres, Verwood, Dorset
For Sale - Fixed Price £69,000

Costrel Wood is a delightful blend of mature birch, oak and hazel interspersed with occasional holly. This interesting mix supports a variety of wildlife and creates great opportunity for the enthusiastic small woodland owner to restore the hazel coppice, harvest mature timber or benefit from the abundance of available wood fuel. The retiring roe deer can be found browsing here by the patient wildlife watcher as they roam freely through the wood. Other woodland creatures are very much at home in this accommodating enclave and evidence of their routine is provided by the numerous well worn foraging routes that mark the ground.

Although barn owls and tawny owls may make this their home, the name of this wood is taken from the 'cider owl' or costrel; a clay container used by agricultural workers to carry cider to the woods and fields in a time long before plastic.

Costrel Wood is ready to be enjoyed for the enormous amenity value that it offers for family and friends keen to explore the many shady thickets and sunny clearings that make up this woodland, along with the interesting ancient mossy bank that defines the western boundary . In contrast along the southern boundary sunlight from open fields illuminates the wood's edge and encourages the growth of woodland flora on the forest floor.

This woodland has level access along a length of woodland track right up to its entrance that is suitable for most vehicles. Once within the wood a series of meandering pathways pass beneath the trees to all parts of this stunning woodland.

The wider surrounding area is characterised by the natural beauty of rural East Dorset, punctuated by attractive villages and thriving market towns within easy reach of the south coast.

These details were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.
