Track leading to the woodland
Coed Llwyn Derw is a relatively level, mixed broadleaf woodland located just a couple of miles away from the lovely seaside town of Criccieth. The trees are quite dense, and there aren’t too many large trees, so this woodland would be well suited to being managed with hand tools. This would be an ideal opportunity to do some thinning, favouring whichever species are preferred.
The wood is reasonably flat to gently sloping throughout, just rising a little more steeply to the northern and north-eastern boundary.
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.
A conifer crop was clear-felled about 25 years ago, and apart from along the external boundaries with adjacent fields, all of the growth is believed to mixed broadleaf natural regeneration, with the occasional conifer to be found.
Leading off from the hard standing parking area there is a recently brush cut path which leads slightly uphill alongside a very small stream on the right. At the end of the path is a small clearing with a simple handmade bench.
There are some areas of seasonal wetland within the wood - wet in the winter, much drier in the spring and summer.
Access, tracks and footpaths
Access to the woodland is via a small stretch of track, which used to be a public road, until the road was widened back in the 1970s, and moved away from the wood. The remains of the tarmac means this track is suitable for most cars, and there is room to park one vehicle in the turning area immediately in front of the entrance into the wood. There are no tracks within the woodland and no public footpaths.
Local area and history
Located a couple of miles away is the lovely seaside town of Criccieth here you’ll find several pubs and restaurants as well as Criccieth Castle which is a stunning sight as you enter Criccieth from the east. Llanystumdwy is where David Lloyd George was brought up as a child, before going on to be Prime Minister from 1916-1922. There is a Lloyd George museum in the village.
The northern boundary runs along a fence line
The eastern boundary runs along a small stream indicated with wooden stakes alternating on each side of the stream. The actual boundary is the centre of the stream.
The southern and western boundary runs along a line of wooden stakes
The boundaries are further indicated with blue paint
