Coed Frân, Pembrokeshire - Nearly 5¼ acres, £25,000

Coed Frân

Coed Frân, like its namesake the crow, could be described as dark, mysterious and perhaps even a little gothic.

The forestry planting here, mainly sitka spruce, forms a dense woodland, the forest floor thick with needles, with some interesting fungi to be found. The ground is level and some of it very wet, with small pockets and pools of water throughout the woodland. There is also great variety of mosses underfoot.

A small stream runs through part of the wood between fairly deep banks close to the northern boundary.

Where there is a break in the canopy and around the outer perimeters of the wood there is good growth of willow, alder and some hazel, all species which thrive in this wetland habitat. Also taking advantage of exposure to the sun around the woodland fringes are various heathers, myrtle, some gorse and other wet heathland plants.

Much of Pembrokeshire's heathland was formed thousands of years ago by ancient farming techniques of cyclical burning and grazing of the land, and sustained by other farming methods which are no longer practiced in this day and age. This rare habitat has created a valuable environment which supports a wide variety of insect life. Even when over planted with conifer the seed bank of indigenous plants remain in the soil and with some management of the woodland cover many of these heathland plants will again flourish, resulting in a rich and varied biodiverse environment. The conifers are still relatively young (planted in 1996) so can be managed with just hand tools, if preferred.

From the large flat hardstanding area at the entrance to Coed Frân, a sheltered sun trap and ideal place to park up a camper van, it is possible to walk the northern boundary and the southern boundary.

The nearby village of Puncheston has a great pub The Drover's Arms with excellent food, and otherwise Fishguard with all amenities on offer is only 15 minutes drive away.

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.

  • Price: £25,000 Freehold
  • Location: Puncheston, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire
  • Size: Nearly 5¼ acres for sale
