Coed Figra is a large and exciting broadleaf woodland, virtually all of which is designated as ancient woodland. The wood is bounded to the east by what must surely be one of the largest dry stone walls in the country, and there are other fascinating dry stone walls throughout the wood. The entrance to Coed Figra is especially large and acts as a level clearing. It includes the remains of two dry-stone sheep pens. There is a varied mix of deciduous trees and the ground flora includes buttercups and bluebells which will make it very vibrant in colour during the spring and summer months.
This woodland also contains a very large clearing in the form of a field-like area. This clearing could be used for recreational activities such as camping, picnicking and general relaxing or reinstating as a small paddock, meadow or wood pasture. Being east facing and fairly high up, the wood receives significant amounts of sunshine which furthers the suitability for recreational use and also gives great views of the Mawddach estuary to the south.
The track leads from the entrance through the wood. After some distance, the track begins to steepen until it reaches another notable area. To reach this area, the remains of an old stone wall must be crossed. This part of the woodland contains many more bluebells and a substantial number of oak trees. Coupled with this, is the particular lack of ground vegetation giving easy access to all areas.
After following the path a bit further, another level clearing is found which also has a great deal of potential. The clearing is mainly surrounded by oak trees with some silver birch among them and is particularly populated with bluebells. A rustic bench is located in the middle of the clearing which allows a place to relax and listen to the sounds of the local wildlife.
After leaving the clearing, there is another stone wall to be crossed and the track stretches through to the rest of the woodland.
The ground vegetation in the woodland ranges from some very clear areas and some areas with a significant concentration of bramble and bracken. Large mossy rocks can also be found on the ground.
The different species of trees which can be found in this woodland include oak, ash, silver birch, hazel, rowan, sycamore and holly. However, oak is the most predominant.
The woodland is particularly enjoyed by the wildlife inhabiting the area. Some of the known wildlife includes various birds such as owl, buzzard, green woodpecker, jay, woodcock, wood warbler and treecreeper. However, there is also the potential for other wildlife to be discovered as the woodland is explored.
The coastal town of Barmouth is fairly nearby which means that there are tourist attractions and amenities available.
The purchasers of the woodland will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
