Coed Demetae, Pembrokeshire - 7½ acres, £39,000

Coed Demetae

The Demetae, a Celtic tribe, were the Iron Age inhabitants of most of Pembrokeshire and South West Wales. They were mainly farming folk, living in thatched round houses the like of which can be seen reconstructed today at Castell Henllys, an Iron Age hill fort minutes away from Coed Demetae and well worth a visit.

It is quite probable that Demetae feet once trod their way up and down the slopes of Coed Demetae, although it may not have been woodland then, perhaps in pursuit of wild boar for dinner, and who knows what you might find buried amongst the tree roots…These days the wooded slopes boast a rich variety of tree species. Mature sycamore make up a large part of the western part of the wood, a fairly steep slope, bordered on the southern side by the minor road and the neighbouring woodland track running up its north western diagonal boundary. Between the trees, the forest floor is thickly covered in ferns.

Coed Demetae has its own private entrance and gate, about halfway along the southern boundary, directly off the road. From here a good stone track has been created which takes you up into the higher part of the woodland. The track has been widened and levelled off a bit in two areas, one fairly near the entrance and the other at the top of the track. These areas would be ideal as a place for working wood, or making a campfire or perhaps parking up a camper van.

From the second clearing at the top of the track there are peaceful views out through the tree canopy. A path has been cut from the back of the clearing, taking you through youngish but well established growth of wild cherry, birch and rowan, all providing good habitat and sustenance to bird and insect life. As you continue your way along the cleared pathway, the woodland slopes away downhill again into a very pretty area of more mature growth of oak, ash and sycamore where more space opens up between the trees.

An old unused cart track runs from close above the second levelled off area to the north eastern boundary, not so much fit for use as a track,although it could be improved if needed, but it provides another fairly level area. From the northern boundary, most of which is fenced, there are pretty views over adjoining fields.

Nearby, picturesque Newport has a great choice of pubs and restaurants serving food and local ales, as well as small shops for provisions, and the local beaches are some of the best in the UK for swimming and surfing. Even closer, there is also the Salutation Arms in Felindre Farchog.

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.
