Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive block of mixed deciduous and coniferous woodland, enjoying a readily accessible rural position conveniently situated between the towns of Torrington and Bideford and within easy reach of major roads. In all about 4.85 Acres.

This sale represents an excellent opportunity to acquire an attractive parcel of mixed woodland known as Loxdown Wood, comprising both conifer and broadleaved species, enjoying a convenient and readily accessible rural position lying adjacent to the A386 between the historic towns of Great Torrington and Bideford.
Enjoying good road frontage, the land benefits from gated access leading off the single track council maintained highway known as Loxdown Road. The woodland contains a delightful mix of broadleaved species including oak, beech and sweet chestnut of varying ages, together with a stand of Douglas Fir. In the spring the woodland floor is in parts covered with a dense carpet of wild garlic, bluebells daffodils and other woodland flowering species.
The land is predominately gently and moderately sloping with a more steeply sloping bank forming the south eastern boundary alongside the A386. The north eastern boundary is characterised by chestnut paling fencing with the western boundary delineated by wooden rails attached to orange marked trees which belong to a third party.
Affording considerable amenity and conservation appeal, Loxdown Wood extends in total to about 4.85 Acres (1.96 Ha), as shown shaded pink on the identification plan contained herein.

The land enjoys a convenient position adjacent to Loxdown Road a single track council road linking the A386 to the pretty village of Monkleigh, which lies about 1.2 miles to the west of the property. The A386 runs alongside the River Torridge, on the opposite side of which lies the small village of Weare Giffard. Despite its rural position the woodland is well located for easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication.
The nearby A386 provides access to wider links with the larger centres of Great Torrington, Bideford, and Barnstaple providing an excellent range of facilities and services. From Barnstaple, access is available to the A361 which provides a convenient link to the M5 motorway network (Junction 27).
