SOLD: Cae Canol £55,000 Freehold


Cae Canol (translated as middle field) is a totally enclosed private meadow. It is gently sloping down to a pool area in the north east corner. The entrance is via a new trackway and through a wooden gate. The borders are double fenced, Cae Canol owns to the centre of these borders. In the borders are a mix of mature fruit trees, including wild cherry and sloe, and also oak and beech.

The southern upper side provides an area to look over the whole field and also take in Moel Bentyrch hill at 335m standing proudly behind the meadow.

The pond area is frequented by wildlife, and we've seen insects, butterflies and dragonflies here. Possibly with some maintenance it could be developed into a useable water source.

This meadow lends itself to grazing, camping, planting and even to a One Planet Development project. The track leading to the meadow is well laid and accessible for the majority of the year.

***Currently there are sheep grazing this land, they are in lamb - NO DOGS onsite please ***

Please leave all gates as you find them.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.


Cae Canol is enclosed with a mature growing border. The trees along the western end are mostly fruit, sloe, crab apple, wild cherry etc. The large mature trees of the northern border include oak and willow.


Spring and summer sees numerous butterflies and insects.

The birdlife is diverse, from Wrens in the hedges, to large buzzards and kites circling overhead.

The meadows are full of life the whole year round, with some gentle nurturing the water area could become a diverse habitat for nature.


Cae Canol is a slightly sloping private meadow with a pond area to the north east corner.

It is bordered with fruit trees, saplings and mature trees fenced and perfect for keeping animals enclosed.

It is accessed up the trackway and through a wooden gate, there is a flat area suitable for a vehicle to park inside here. The track , although on a hill, is well laid and accessible to a 2 wheel drive car for the majority of the year.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The access to the meadow is via the main track from the bottom car parking area, between the barns and up a new track across the hillside. A stoned track leads to the entrance gate.

There are no trodden pathways within the meadow, just tracks where animals have wandered.
