General Description
Stotfold Farm Woodland is situated within the County Parish of Seaton with Slingley to the west of the A19 and the coastal town of Seaham is approximately 3 miles away. As such the woodland contains multiple access points from the roadside, in addition to excellent internal tracks which are suitable for vehicles.

Prior to being converted into forestry in 2003/04 the land was cultivated and used for agricultural grazing and feed crops. The woodland extends to approximately 112 hectares (276.75 acres) and was previously enrolled in a Woodland Grant Scheme and Farm Woodland Premium Scheme which ended in 2018. The purchaser/s will be required to comply with additional conditions as set out in the scheme contact for a further 15 years maintenance of the woodland until 2033. A copy of the scheme contract is available for the selling agent.

The woodland stocking comprises a mixture of native broadleaved trees. The most prevalent trees being Oak and Ash however small elements of Birch, Rowan, Hazel, Alder, Willow, Hawthorn and Blackthorn are all dotted about within the crop.

As this stocking grows, the mixed aged crop will provide a range of different height trees creating protection, breaking up the rather open landscape while also providing birds, mammals and invertebrates with a diverse natural habitat.
