Trengoffe Wood is a superb riverside oak and beech woodland, located in the midst of the beautiful Cornish countryside, and is not far from the coast. It is classified as Ancient Woodland, indicating it has had continuous tree cover since the 1600s.
Access within Trengoffe could not be better, an excellent stone track leads from the main gate up to and through the woodland and is suitable for year-round use. Approximately 30 metres into the wood there is a handy stoned pull-in, an ideal parking place. Heading up the slope from here is a second earth track that provides good access further into the woodland. This track could also be a good place to pitch a tent. Across the track, a footpath leads down to the water’s edge, where a further path follows the riverbank.
The River Bedalder, that runs along the western boundary, is relatively shallow and fast-flowing but has a few deep pools where sea trout and perhaps even the odd salmon may be seen returning to spawn upstream. The alluring riverside is lush with long grasses, ferns and sedge grasses and would be a marvellous spot to site a wooden bench and watch the water flow past.
As you walk through the woodland, only the sound of the river and the local animal population break the silence, such is the seclusion offered here. Frequent visitors include roe deer, badgers, rabbits and foxes. Amongst the animal signs on the ground, such as foot and hoof prints, gnawed leaves and scat, is a myriad of ground vegetation. In springtime, wild garlic and bluebells cover the woodland floor, the colour of both plants and the smell of garlic decorate the entire woodland. The rest of the year, wood anemones, gill-over-the-ground, bracken and primroses keep the woodland looking green under the canopy.
In summary, Trengoffe Wood is a charming Ancient Woodland with the gorgeous River Bedlalder running along its boundary. In the springtime this would be a great place to spend a long weekend, trying to spot river trout and if you are lucky, salmon.
If It Were Mine
The woodland is quite mature and does not require any significant works, so other than cutting a bit of firewood I would merely enjoy as it is. I would, however, improve the footpath down to the river which would make carting the BBQ goodies from the car far easier, set up a little area to pitch a tent and have a campfire by the water’s edge and spend a few glorious summer weekends here with family and friends.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.

Directions & Access
- From Liskeard, on the A38, travel west for approximately 5 miles.

- Continue along this road for approximately half a mile and turn left, signposted for Tredinnick Farm.
- Drive for approximately 1.6 miles, staying on this road (you will pass Little Tredinnick Farm on the left and through Great Tredinnick Farm).
- As the road dips downhill, the road will turn sharp to the right, and on the left-hand side you will see a wooden gate on the left. A Woods4Sale sign is on the left of the gate, slightly set back. On the gate is a ‘Woodlands Manage this Wood’ sign (point A).
- From the A30, travelling west from Launceston, drive for approximately 10 miles, direction for Bolventor.

From the main gate
- Climb the timber gate (sorry, we don’t provide keys for viewing purposes), and walk down the stoned track.
- After a short distance, the track will bear round to the left and start climbing uphill relatively quickly (on the right is a large stoned area and another minor stone track leading down to the river, do not take this track).
- Climb the hill for approximately 100 metres.
- Once you arrive at the brow of the slope, approximately 30 metres on you will see, on either side of the track, a short section of wooden post and rail fencing and immediately beyond a wooden sign with the name of the woodland on it (point B). This is the northern boundary of the woodland.
- The northern and southern boundaries are indicated by red paint on trees and posts.
- The western boundary is the river’s edge.
- The eastern boundary is indicated by an earth bank with stock fencing on top and agricultural fields beyond.
The sporting rights are owned and included in the sale. They are not let.
