Owning the freehold for a woodland is pretty much like having an extended garden, set in an idyllic location. You can enjoy and study wildlife, harvest the wild fruits and fungi (be sure you check they are edible), picnic, climb trees, make trails and harvest firewood. Alternatively you may just want to escape once in a while to enjoy the peace, tranquillity and serenity of your own woodland hideaway.
Legal, Some key factors to consider
In accordance with British Law, owners are not allowed to build any permanent structures in their woodland.
Overnight stays are restricted to 28 nights per year, although owners can use their asset 365 days a year.
Owning woodlands has significant inheritance tax benefits.
Owners can take firewood and a limited amount of timber from their plot.
