Cider with Rosie country Woodland on the Market for £210,000

Posted on 27 August, 2015 by admin

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise – at least, if you plan to visit a particular area of the Slad Valley, that is. This is because a unique opportunity has arisen to acquire the 35 acre Worgan’s Wood, located just two miles north of Stroud.


The setting for Laurie Lee’s classic novel “Cider with Rosie”, the woodland features an array of broadleaf trees and takes up a position in the heart of the Slad valley. It is accessed by a single track no through road called Folly Lane and, as a firm favourite with artists, comes packed with literary credentials.

Bruton Knowles rural specialist Ben Compton has been appointed to market Worgan’s Wood, and believes it is an ideal opportunity for a private investor seeking an idyllic hideaway to call their own.

He says; “This purchase might be a question of heart ruling head. This is a totally private, mainly beech woodland – owners can take a walk and enjoy the trees and quiet glades.

“We feel that the unique content and location will outweigh the non-commercial nature of the woodland.”

As Mr Compton points out, non-commercial woodlands very rarely reach the open market, particularly in areas famed for natural beauty such as the Cotswold valleys. Furthermore, the guide price of £210,000 is sure to attract the attention of nature lovers from across the country.

Mr Compton concludes; “We have buyers looking for land for all sorts of purposes at the moment and this extraordinary opportunity will certainly appeal to many of them.”

“With lending rates now at their lowest for 30 years and finance available, this is a one-off opportunity for those wanting to invest in our rural areas.”
