Forming part of a wider gated forested area near to the West Sussex border, Two Eared Wood is an enchanting copse conveniently located 11 miles from Guildford.
This flourishing woodland is situated on predominately level loam over clay soils that slope very gently west and comprises a strong natural succession of sweet chestnut from a past rotation of mature coppice, along with hazel coppice, oak, birch, sycamore, ash and holly. Flanking the northern fence is a majestic ash, making a nice spot for story telling round a fire on a summer’s eve. Woodland shrubs, flowers and fence climbers include bushy yellow gorse, honeysuckle, blackberry, primrose, foxglove and rush.
Being fully encompassed by a high deer fence, not only does the woodland present a wonderful sense of privacy, it also offers a new owner plenty of scope to manage some well-established chestnut coppice and perhaps further enhance tree cover with oak and Norway spruce.
A number of woodland mammals take sanctuary in the wider woodland such as both fallow and roe deer, fox, badger and brown long-eared bat have all been spotted. Within this wood, feathered visitors include buzzard, little owl, woodpecker and many harmonious songbirds.
Two Eared Wood offers plenty to keep a weekend woodsman busy and benefits from vehicular access for a 4WD vehicle all year round and a 2WD car in all but the very wettest of conditions.
If It Were Mine
I would certainly consider some additional planting of conifer; Norway spruce could work well here. One of the grassy locations would make a most excellent place to camp and enjoy some stargazing!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
