Cuckoos Corner is a south facing block of amenity woodland that has two distinct areas. The west half is adorned with mature oak, some scattered pine and a mixture of broadleaved species of varying age. The east side has a commercially planted stand of good quality mature larch trees that will provide some excellent timber.
There is a good diversity of other tree species including sweet chestnut, cherry and silver birch. The wood lies in a secluded area that is especially quiet, and interrupted with only the sound of song birds.
The woodland floor is a mixture of habitats that support sporadic areas of bluebells, woodland grasses, ferns and brambles, providing the local wildlife with plenty of food and cover.
The wood is quite densely populated with trees and would welcome a light thin resulting in some good quality firewood for the hearth. It has a number of discrete open areas ideal for camping, or just to rest and enjoy the environment.
Cuckoos Corner is accessed along woodland tracks that are in excellent condition and provide the owner with full vehicular access. A locked gate at the roadside with no public access or footpaths means the woodland is also wonderfully quiet and secure. This is much appreciated by the local wildlife including the regular visits of roe and muntjac deer.
Situated in this quiet rural location Cuckoos Corner is within easy reach of Romsley and only a few minutes’ drive from junction 4 of the M5.
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.
