Charm Wood lies towards the northwest edge of a larger woodland near the attractive village of Maeshafn, in the Clwydian Range ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Mold is about 15 minutes to the east and Ruthin a similar distance to the west. The A55 dual carriageway is just 8 miles to the northeast enabling easy access from Manchester and the West Midlands.

The wood has a gentle west-facing aspect with moderate slopes, gentle terraces and shallow gullies punctuated by limestone bluffs and outcrops. It appears to be a mid-rotation beech wood, but closer inspection reveals a goodly proportion of oak and ash which are also thriving on the lime-rich soils. The stand also supports a small number of elm and sycamore atop a light scattering of holly and hazel plus one rather lonely Scots pine.

When we visited, the woodland floor was a clear carpet of copper leaves punctuated by occasional fern and moss-clad limestone outcrops.

Access to the wood is via a private tarmac road that links with a well-found stone track on the west side of the property. From here there is good internal access to most parts of the wood thanks to freely-drained soils and gentle terrain.

Manageable, productive, attractive and affordable – this is certainly worth an early look.

If It Were Mine

The well-managed stands will benefit from ongoing thinning for which a Forestry Commission licence is in place until April 2017 (renewal should be a formality). Camping and BBQs would be inevitable (no licence required!).

Please take appropriate care when viewing and keep back from any unfenced sinks or openings.

Please note that we do not give out keys for viewing.
