Thistly Wood is a predominantly deciduous woodland located in the heart of the Lake District National Park [UNESCO World Heritage] extending to approximately 3.01 acres (1.22 hectares).

Over the years, nature and conservation have been the prime objectives for this charming parcel of amenity woodland. It comprises mature oak, beech, sycamore and spruce. There is well-established flora and fauna, including dense patches of wild garlic and watercress, as well as bluebells in the spring. The land slopes gradually down towards the south, revealing far-reaching views towards Ambleside and Lake Windermere.

The external boundaries consist of stone walls with wall-top wiring. There is also a post-wire fence on the southerly boundary of the woodland which runs alongside the track and public footpath.

An existing timber constructed tipi is situated within the woodland. This has been used for recreational purposes, including live music evenings overlooking the beautiful sunsets across the Langdale Pikes. There is also a convenient hard-standing parking area on the southern boundary and a quaint shepherds hut with a wood-burning stove is situated here, which is also included with the sale.

Thistly Wood presents a unique opportunity to purchase an idyllic woodland in the Lake District National Park which boasts wildlife, beautiful views, and endless opportunities for woodland management, conservation, recreation and family enjoyment.

Thistly Wood benefits from a right of access along the private track marked pink on the sale plan. This track is conveniently located directly from Kirkstone Road and is suitable for 4-wheel drive vehicles. This track is also a public footpath.

The woodland can also be accessed on foot via the public footpath from Ellerigg Road.
