Coed Dwynant (Dwynant Wood), Gwynedd - Almost 5 acres, £39,000

Coed Dwynant (Dwynant Wood)
Coed Dwynant (Dwynant Wood)
Gwynedd

A diverse mature broadleaf woodland that borders the River Dwynant, near the Mawddach estuary and close to the seaside town of Barmouth.

Coed Dwynant consists of predominantly broadleaf trees with a variety of different species. It is unclear to what extent in the past, in the 1800s through to the 1960s, some areas of this woodland, and the surrounding area, had been utilised as wood pasture. However, these areas of land have now reverted back to woodland, with the exception that Coed Dwynant still has some natural open clearings. There are old dry stone walls and nearby sheep pens which provide a cultural insight as to how farming was carried out in the past.

There are many different species of trees growing in this woodland, including oak, ash, silver birch, hazel, rowan, sycamore and holly. In some areas there are thick and very dense understories of hazel, holly and ash. During the months of April and May, carpets of bluebells can be seen, and along with this is a mix of different types of bracken, ferns and, during the winter, a variety of fungi.

Starting from the road, a track leads to the wood, and provides good access.

There is a path into the woodland that leads down through the wood to the river Dwynant and the bottom of the valley. On the descent through the wood there are some interesting level areas that form natural clearings. These clearings provide a new owner with the opportunity to clear the undergrowth and create a blank canvas for creating areas for planting new tree species, forest gardens, wild flower meadows or a secluded flat area for recreational use or base for woodland activities.

This woodland is south easterly facing so during the summer months receives lots of sunshine.

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.

At the very bottom of the wood the boundary is formed by the river Dwynant which is a fast flowing river going through the valley to join the Mawddach Estuary. On the rivers edge there is an old retaining stone wall protecting the riverbank and a secluded large flat area which is ideal for enjoying the sight and sounds of the river. One very satisfying and rewarding project could be to create some woodland/forest steps dug into the slope leading to the river to create easier access to the rivers edge.

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.
