Fellows Meadow £239,000 Freehold

Description

Fellows meadow is an ideal canvas for those looking to plant a substantial new woodland. A parcel of land with an agricultrual history, its combines a large section of open land in the middle with a belt of well managed broadleaved woodland around the northern and eastern perimeter. The established woodland provides a number of benefits to the meadow, adding biodiversity to the land and acting as an important corridor for wildlife to travel through . Perhaps most importantly, it will act as a seed source aiding the natural regeneration of the land, which could be utilised in concert with active tree planting. There are already a number of oak trees taking root around the edges of the meadow. The northern and eastern boundaries of the land are demarcated by streams, adding a valubale source of water to the meadow.

The meadow is also bordered to the south and west by neighbouring woodlands, meaning all sides of the open land are shielded by broadleaved species, creating a very private and sheltered space in the middle. Even the short private drive from the access track runs between towering oak trees, creating a grand entrance to this fabulous meadow. A generous hammerhead of hard standing at the northern edge of the meadow provides ample space for a number vehicles.

The land and local area already form an important haven for wildlife, fostering deer, rabbits, badger, woodcock and snipe to name but a few. The addition of new woodland to the open land will only serve to extend the diverse habitats already in place. The land is almost entirely flat in nature, with a ditch running the length of the western boundary and the stream to the east draining water in a northerly direction.

The meadow would be of particular appeal to those interested in pursuing woodland creation for the purposes of carbon offseting, due to the extensive scope for planting afforded by the size of the open land. There is of course excellent amenity appeal as well, with the woodland shaw adding variation to the land. On a bright day sunlight perforates the canopy, casting a dappled light throughout the well spaced woodland, which is populated by a combination of deciduous standard and coppice trees. The soothing babble of the winding streams provide a soundtrack to the magical setting.

Located on the Cornwall / Devon border in a remarkably beautiful and private location, Fellows meadow is a piece of land with a very special feel. It is brimming with potential, offering a new custodian the chance to transform the landscape via the planting of extensive new woodlands to compliment the trees which already stand there, leaving a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.

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