Costrel Wood

Dorset

A classic English oak wood and hazel coppice of enormous appeal in a delightful area of East Dorset.

Costrel Wood is a delightful blend of mature birch, oak and hazel interspersed with occasional holly. This interesting mix supports a variety of wildlife and creates great opportunity for the enthusiastic small woodland owner to restore the hazel coppice, harvest mature timber or benefit from the abundance of available wood fuel. The retiring roe deer can be found browsing here by the patient wildlife watcher as they roam freely through the wood. Other woodland creatures are very much at home in this accommodating enclave and evidence of their routine is provided by the numerous well worn foraging routes that mark the ground.

Although barn owls and tawny owls may make this their home, the name of this wood is taken from the ‘cider owl’ or costrel; a clay container used by agricultural workers to carry cider to the woods and fields in a time long before plastic.

Costrel Wood is ready to be enjoyed for the enormous amenity value that it offers for family and friends keen to explore the many shady thickets and sunny clearings that make up this woodland, along with the interesting ancient mossy bank that defines the western boundary . In contrast along the southern boundary sunlight from open fields illuminates the wood’s edge and encourages the growth of woodland flora on the forest floor.

This woodland has level access along a length of woodland track right up to its entrance that is suitable for most vehicles. Once within the wood a series of meandering pathways pass beneath the trees to all parts of this stunning woodland.

The wider surrounding area is characterised by the natural beauty of rural East Dorset, punctuated by attractive villages and thriving market towns within easy reach of the south coast.

These details were prepared by local manager Daniel Sharp.

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.

Directions

From the south, after passing Ringwood, leave the A31 at the B3081 junction signposted Verwood and follow the B3081 north on the Verwood Road.

Continue your journey through Verwood town centre along Station Road, until you reach the roundabout signposted to Alderholt and Cranborne along Champtoceaux Road.

After a couple of miles the road bears round to the right and The Heavy Horse Centre is on your left. After a further 500 metres there is a sharp left hand bend as the road becomes Batterley Drove. The entrance to the woods is located a few metres along a private road on your right on the apex of this bend. There is a ‘Woodlands For Sale’ sign by the entrance gate, where you can park (taking care not to cause an obstruction) and continue along the woodland track on foot. (The new owner will be provided with a key access for the entrance gate)

The track continues into the woods, bearing right initially and then left after a few hundred metres at which point you will see the name sign for Costrel Wood, and blue boundary markings on your right.

From Salisbury take the A354 Blandford Road for approximately 13 miles and at the roundabout, take the first exit signposted Ringwood B3081. Continue for 3 miles turning left at Parsonage Lane onto B3078 towards Edmondsham.

Keep left through Edmondsham and after a further mile turn left onto the Edmondsham Road and pick up direction by the Heavy Horse centre as above.
