Guide Price £80,000

Property Description

Full description

LOCATION The wood and meadow on the edge of Clapham are 4.7 miles south west of Exeter city centre, in an Area of Great Landscape Value, are dissected by the River Kenn and sit alongside two lakes (not included in the sale). To the West the woodland looks out over the Haldon hills up towards Belvedere Tower.



DESCRIPTION The 8.27 acre (3.34 hectares) broadleaf woodland was planted with Sweet Chestnut and some Sycamore (to protect the chestnut), and was no doubt to be coppiced, but is now fully mature. There are also a variety of other deciduous species including Oak and Beech on the plantation edge, with a lower canopy in places including Holly, Hazel and Laurel. The woodland offers many amenity opportunities as well as ongoing woodland management including Sweet Chestnut coppicing following harvesting the timber, creating a lake, glamping or timber chalets, subject to the usual consents.



The woodland gently slopes towards the two lakes, known locally as Haldon Ponds, which form part of the north-west boundary. The lakes are on the River Kenn which runs through the wood and alongside a small overgrown river meadow of 0.97 acres. This would make an ideal pony paddock (after clearing the scrub growth) as it adjoins Haldon Drive, or a site for a further lake (subject to usual consents).



Please note the boathouse is not included in the sale and there are no rights to use the adjoining lakes.
