SOLD: Loxbeare Wood £85,000 Freehold

  • Near Stoodleigh, Tiverton, Devon
  • about 8 ⅓ acres
  • Devon


Loxbeare Wood is ideal for those looking for a small commercial timber crop or those simply looking for a mature peaceful woodland that is suitable for a variety of amenity uses.

The woodland is found at the end of a good stoned forestry track with its own private entrance leading into an area of mature Norway spruce trees planted in 1965. The spruce provides the option for a supply of timber for personal use such as planking for wooden buildings or for a long term firewood supply. There is good access through this part of the woodland and at the south eastern edge a picnic bench has been placed to sit and enjoy the views of an attractive stream nearby.

Exploring the woodland heading north follow the old wood banks along the east or western edges and you can explore the entirety of this majestic woodland habitat. The woodland changes further north to a mixed woodland with sections of mature broadleaved trees with a stream at this point within the boundaries. Native tree species include hazel, willow, oak, ash, birch with some large beech trees along the boundary.

Birds such as the greater spotted woodpecker, long tailed tits and the nuthatch can be observed here. There are signs of the red deer using the habitat in the form of tracks in the mud and tree rubbing, which is usually done by males rubbing their antlers on a tree. Roe deer are also frequent visitors.

Loxbeare Wood denotes the local Parish of Loxbeare. This place name is derived from Olde English ‘Lox’ meaning winding stream and the pre 7th Century word ‘Bearu’ meaning a grove or a wood.

The local area is quiet and very pleasant with country lanes winding through small villages. Exmoor National Park is within easy reach and the stunning north Devon coast with its popular surfing beaches of Croyde or Woolacombe. Whilst Westward Ho! is within a 45 minute drive.

The market town of Tiverton is within a short drive and has many facilities including shops and a leisure centre with a swimming pool.

Particulars and plans were prepared by our local manager, Stuart Brooking.

The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
