Golden Wood

Dorset

One of the last of the recent opportunities we have been able to offer to become custodian of a small woodland in this part of East Dorset.

Brief flourishes of autumn sunshine illuminate the woodland as the last vestiges of summer slip away into winter. The giant oaks and scattered hazel throughout Golden Wood begin the same process. The green chlorophyll breaks down as the temperatures drop and the underlying yellow and orange shades become dominant. The effect is a stunning and comprehensive display as the golden leaves cover the tree and the ground simultaneously during the transition to bare limbs, so essential for their survival during the winter storms. Only the holly now preserves the woodland green of summer and the occasional flash of brilliant red berries that will sustain the remaining birdlife during the coming months

This dazzling golden display is a signal of the changing seasons and a prompt to make ready for leaner times. This period of pending austerity is tempered with the romantic images of popular culture. The country kitchen is in full swing preserving the last of the harvest and enduring memories of bonfires and cosy evenings mask concerns of a harsh winter.

Golden Wood is a fine example of a English Woodland and a joy throughout the seasons. A high oak canopy has protected the birds, mammals and varied flora in this woodland for many generations regardless of the the seasonal weather extremes and with the attention and enjoyment of a new owner can continue to thrive indefinitely.

There has been little opportunity in recent years for small woodland ownership in this most sought after part of the country, where rolling farmland and attractive towns and villages populate the rural landscape. The communities of Verwood and Cranborne are on hand to provide refreshment and other essential supplies or Salisbury and the South Coast are readily accessible a little further afield.

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 Golden Wood, and orange 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.
