Coed Euryn £29,000 Leasehold


Coed Euryn is a mixed woodland on steep ground located up in the top corner of north-west Wales between the towns of Mochdre and Colwyn Bay. It is named after Bryn Euryn, the hill on the opposite side of the A55. Also very close by is the walled castle town of Conwy, the victorian town of Llandudno and the Great Orme local nature reserve that is also a Special Area of Conservation.

The woodland has both dense and more open areas and the ground is thickly carpeted with ivy in many places. The ground is steeply sloping but from the higher parts of the woodland there are some beautiful views of the mountains to the west and over Colwyn Bay and out to sea to the east. The woodland is bordered by other private woodland to the east and open fields at the top of the hill to the south.

Access to Coed Euryn is directly from the A547, also known as Conwy Road, and onto a public footpath immediately to the east of the woodland. The footpath starts with some stone steps from the road and then continues up the hill and exits the southern boundary of the wood. A path leading to Coed Euryn starts near the steps, and runs parallel along the main road to the west. The entrance to Coed Euryn is at the end of this cut path along from Coed Castell.

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.


There are a variety of mature trees within the woodland - broadleaf dominate with a few large well established Fir trees. Laurel and holly offer evergreen coverage. The tree species in Coed Euryn include many mature specimens of scots pine, lots of sycamore, oak and some very productive fruiting holly trees.


There is a variety of wildlife in the woodland despite being close to a busy road. The most obvious being the Badger setts. Birdlife is also varied, birds of prey making use of the neighbouring meadowland can be heard overhead.

Bats are a feature too, with a roost within the quarry.


The established woodland is in itself a feature. Natural glades break up some dense areas of vegetation. Many badger runs offer ways through the woodland if you're as nimble as a badger.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access into the woodland is on foot only. A short flight of steps climbs on a public footpath that borders the eastern side of the mother wood. From the public right of way there is a right of access through this woodland to the entrance of Coed Euryn. There are no particularly well established tracks within the wood, our badger friends really being the only ones making visible tracks.

Rights and covenants

The woodland is leasehold, with the freehold being owned by Conwy County Borough Council. It is a 999 year lease with 987 years still to run. The annual ground rent is fixed at just 40 pence a year.

Coed Euryn is marked with green boundary markings.

The south and west boundaries run along the perimeter fence. The northern boundary is the stone wall adjacent to the road, but then cuts around the property adjacent to the quarry. The eastern boundary climbs from the bus stop to a large sycamore - there are markings on trees and a single post (jointly marked in blue) close to a fallen tree.
