Hide Wood is a delightful young broadleaved wood that sits within an Ancient Woodland site. This tranquil and unspoilt woodland is set in the gentle hills of rural Worcestershire and has great potential for the new owner.
The wood is accessible through a secure gated entrance and along a hard surfaced track that gently descends through the wider wooded landscape.
Set on a flat aspect it is composed of pioneer trees at pole stage, some maturing trees and an open area that feels both private and welcoming. The tree species you will find in this wood include attractive mature oaks, regenerated sweet chestnut coppice stools, holly trees and an abundance of rowans and birches. The open areas are carpeted with bluebells in spring, giving way to swathes of grass and bracken as the seasons change.
Access is suitable for a 2WD car and runs from the local authority road to the edge of the wood. There is a turning and parking area off the main track and an unsurfaced track leading to the side of the wood.
Hide Wood is the perfect choice for those looking to own a beautiful amenity woodland for leisure purposes, including camping, or for simply getting closer to nature. The trees would welcome a light thin to favour the best form and will provide plenty of scope for the new owner to produce small quantities of quality firewood for the family home and an excellent project for an enthusiastic woodsman.
An overage clause on this property provides for 25% of the increase in the value of the land upon the granting of planning permission to be paid to a previous owner up until April 2020. After this the overage clause lapses.
If It Were Mine
Thinning out a good proportion of the birch would leave the oak to develop and grow further. Also consider some infill planting of trees in the more open areas and create a shelter for storing and drying firewood that might also provide a useful retreat to enjoy the surroundings over lunch.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
