The woodland is situated between the hamlets of Pristacott and Harracott, west of the River Taw valley in north Devon. The village of Newton Tracey lies one mile to the west whilst Tawstock lies two miles to the north. The town of Barnstaple is five miles to the north.

The woodland comprises 2.50 acres (1.01 hectares) of former agricultural land that was planted with trees in 2003. The land is sloping and was planted with mainly deciduous trees including species of oak and ash. It lies in a quiet position adjoining farm land and a byway forms the northern boundary.

There are no mains services connected to the woodland.

Access to the woodland is over a Byway Open to All Traffic (BOAT). The byway provides access towards Newton Tracey (west), Pristacott (south) and Harracott (east).

The woodland is owned freehold and is available with vacant possession upon completion.

The woodland is offered for sale by private treaty.

The woodland was originally planted under a Farm Woodland Premium Scheme (FWPS) in 2003 (reference 018004618). This scheme runs for a period of 30 years, and therefore terminates in 2033. Please contact Stags for further information.

The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of any wayleave agreements and any public or private rights of way or bridleways etc.
