Bluebell Copse lies on the south side of the River North Tyne, and benefits from commanding views to the northeast over unspoilt countryside. The A69 is just 10 minutes to the south giving easy access east and west to Newcastle and Carlisle, both of which are about 40 minutes by car.
The wood lies within a mile of Hadrian’s Wall, a short section of which is visible at nearby Brunton Turret. A number of attractive villages offer local facilities and the regional centre of Hexham is about 15 minutes away.
At first sight Bluebell Copse is a little unprepossessing, but walk up the ride and then cut into the wood to be rewarded with splendid framed views, spreading sycamore, elegant birch stems and tranquil glades carpeted with bluebells. A real hidden gem.
Aside from the glades, the wood is dominated by birch and coppice sycamore, giving way to the occasional willow in the damper northwest corner. Apart from bluebells the ground flora includes ferns, soft grasses, wood sorrel, bugle and other woodland associates. Brambles are for the most part absent making for easy walking over most of the wood.
A substantial newly-constructed stone track leads to a private parking spur at the northwest corner of the property. This leads onto a soft track (a former tub line railway) running all the way up the southwest boundary, at the end of which there is a sizeable bing. Indeed the remains of a small tub cart are visible on the bing which is now crowned with sycamore and hawthorn.
The incoming owner will have to share this delightful spot with a few local residents including roe deer, hares, songbirds and buzzards. Shouldn’t prove too onerous!
If It Were Mine
I’d tidy up the southwest edge by the soft track, perhaps single some of the coppice sycamore, and take the occasional birch for firewood. The bluebell glades promise some superb private camping.
