Shears Copse is situated in an accessible location, with access from the A3124 road, approximately 1.5 miles to the north west of Winkleigh, which lies amidst rolling Devon countryside and offers a range of facilities, including village stores, post office, butcher, primary school, pre-school, 2 pubs, veterinary surgery, doctors surgery and church. There are a range of activities based around the community centre, village hall and sports hall.

The A3124 provides a good road link to Great Torrington, Okehampton and North Tawton whilst the market towns of South Molton and Crediton are within easy reach of the land.

Shears Copse is an attractive deciduous wood totalling approximately 2.69 acres (1.09 hectares) and is a level plot with access directly to the A3124. The trees are of mixed ages, with some mature oak and beech trees interspersed with some younger trees which have naturally generated. There are some open areas throughout the wood and a variety of flora on the woodland floor, including bluebells during the spring.

There are no mains services connected to the wood.

The woodland has frontage on to the A3124 on its northern boundary. There is presently a pedestrian entrance into the wood, but no vehicular access. The present owner parks on the roadside verge adjacent to the stile into the wood.

Shears Copse is offered for sale by private treaty, as one lot.

The wood is available with vacant possession upon completion and is offered for sale on a leasehold basis, with the remaining term of a 999 year lease from The Woodland Trust which commenced in 2013.

A copy of a standard Woodland Trust 999 year lease agreement is available from Stags, but the terms of the lease stipulate that the wood is to be used as an amenity woodland with access for the public on foot, and the purchaser is not to carry out any trade or business from the wood.

Any building or structure will also require the written consent of The Woodland Trust.
