Surrounded by a wider gated forested area known as Leapingbar Copse, Honeybunch Wood lies 6 miles northwest of Guildford in semi-rural Surrey.
The mature canopy established on level loamy clay soils consists of magnificent Scots pine interspersed with a variety of broadleaves including birch, beech and oak. A new owner could consider a Scots pine or two to fell and mill onsite using the current Forestry Commission thinning licence. Within the shrub layer there are stems of established birch, hazel and an array of colourful rhododendron, looking particularly lovely during spring and summer. Woodland flora include foxglove, primrose, occasional honeysuckle and fern, all playing host to important buzzing pollinators during the warmer months.
A secluded pond occupies the southern boundary; this area would make a wonderful spot for occasional camping There are a number of open areas within the woodland, ideal to practice bushcraft skills.
A range of woodland creatures including muntjac deer, fox, badger, hare and wood mouse have all been observed in an around the area. Many feathered guests take refuge among the trees, including little owl, green woodpecker, pipit, yellowhammer and many sweet songsters.
Honeybunch Wood is a fabulous woodland that can be enjoyed by an aspiring woodsman with a young family and is navigable year-round along a stone track suitable for a 2WD vehicle.
There is an Article 4 direction on the wider woodland including Honeybunch Wood which means that permitted development rights which normally apply for any improvement to, or installation of, gates/fences/walls have been removed and full planning permission should be sought.
If It Were Mine
Small enough to manage and large enough to lose oneself in, there is vast scope to enjoy the surroundings with friends and family. I’d select some logs for the hearth as well as hang a hammock near the water’s edge and enjoy the tranquillity found here.
