dark overgrown woodland garden


I have just moved to a house with an area of oak woodland which I want to look after properly. There are only a lot of very large laurel and holly bushes that are completely bare at base and block all light at the moment. The oak trees are very tall but bare at base and covered in ivy. Any areas of ground getting light are covered in ivy. I feel like removing laurel and some holly to let light in and plant other varied species to encourage wildlife and make it light, pleasant and colourful to walk around/sit in. But should I and where do I start and what do I plant? Will laurel sprout again low down if main trunk pruned? Is laurel worth having at all (evergreen I suppose)? Help please!
