Trenant Vale Wood lies on the northwest side of a small valley on the eastern edge of Wadebridge. This pretty market town is at the head of the Camel Estuary on the north Cornish coast. The lively fishing port of Padstow is a short trip downstream and thanks to the wide variety of local attractions and stunning coastline the area is now a year-round destination.
The wood itself is an attractive bank of mature mixed broadleaves. Sycamore and ash dominate in mixture with native species including oak, cherry, birch and beech. There’s plenty of regeneration of young stems beneath, along with woody shrubs such as hazel and holly.
Wadebridge has grown in recent years and now effectively encloses the wood, but thanks to some attractive old properties and an open valley adjacent the woodland feels well integrated with the local landscape. When we visited in early winter, Trenant Vale was alive with birdlife - robins thrushes, dunnocks, finches and a variety of tits were all very much in evidence (and surprisingly vocal too).
Access to the wood is taken directly off the public road at either end of the property. A public footpath runs between these two entrances and a third access is via steps midway along the northwest side of the property.
Trenant Vale is no longer a rural property, but it retains many features of long-established woodland and presents a most unusual opportunity to acquire an affordable parcel of English heritage land in a much sought-after area.
The small rectangle excluded from the southeast side measuring 0.11 acres (shown with green stripes on the plan) is the result of it being transferred into the ownership of a company which was subsequently wound up without the land being removed from its ownership. As a result the land reverted by default to the Duchy of Cornwall.
