Denfield Copse forms the western section of a young woodland composed of mixed broadleaves and scattered shrubs dating from about 2015. The property occupies level ground and enjoys a bright aspect with open views over adjacent farmland to the southwest including a distant glimpse of Benachie. Huntly is about 12 miles to the south from where the A96 makes easy connection to Aberdeen and Inverness.
The trees and shrubs were planted in random fashion and at a light and variable density giving a natural look. Birch, oak and alder feature along with a variety of shrubs including hazel, hawthorn, and rosa rugosa.
Like its neighbours, Denfield is progressively reverting to a more natural state and is already providing refuge to an increasing variety of birds and mammals. We saw stoats, roe deer and buzzards during our visit along with plenty of smaller songbirds.
With direct road frontage, a secluded location, level ground and a light planting density, Denfield is an ideal starter property for anyone seeking a rural refuge.
Please note: The vendors will only consider a sale to parties who viewed by appointment.
If It Were Mine
I’d remove and dispose of the tree tubes wherever they are constricting the growing stems. There’s scope to further enrich the planting with additional native trees and shrubs in some locations, but I’d also maintain a small clearing as a locus for camping and recreation.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
