Chapelholme Wood is part of a much larger area of woodland which flanks the River Calder. The property has been owned by the vendors since 1969 following a Tree Preservation Order being declared to prevent unauthorized timber felling. Historically nature conservation has been the prime objective and the lush carpets of woodrush, dense patches of bilberry and in the spring fantastic displays of bluebells and wild garlic go a long way to proving this.

The private treaty sale of this woodland presents a rare opportunity to purchase an idyllic Lake District woodland rich in flora and fauna. Chapelholme is a splendid ash-hazel woodland on a south east facing slope with a plantation of semi-mature oak and sycamore forming a strip a strip along the northwest boundary. There is occasional mature larch and Douglas Fir and the ground flora is dominated by a carpet of bluebells. The wood benefits from good roadside access and includes a parking area. To the rear of the parking area is a former sandstone quarry that is abundant with  ferns and bryophytes.
