SOLD: Coed Pen y Bwlch £35,000 Freehold


Coed Pen y Bwlch is in the central area of Troed yr Ewig woodland and is easily accessed from the main track. Once on this track, enter via the ridestop, where there is space for a vehicle. Along the track you'll find a beautiful bench and then a clearing below majestic oaks and sycamore. The eastern boundary is the centre of the small watercourse that sometimes runs down from the top of the wood.

The northern end of the woodland is mostly coniferous, nearly mature tall majestic pines, whereas the lower trees are a mix of oak, rowan, holly, sycamore, ash and more.

Although on a hillside, the main track rises gently into the heart of the wood, then curves around to a beautiful meadowland. This small flat area of grass, is particularly buzzing with life late spring and early summer. There are numerous wild flowers, and many pollinators gather here.

At the entrance there is a ride stop with space for a vehicle - accessible when dry as there is a steep bend to negotiate on the way up.

Coed Pen y Bwlch (Top of the Gap woodland) is named as it is below the ancient settlement of Pen y Bwlch on the hill Moel Bentyrch, a beautiful walk with wide panoramic views in any season.

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.


The top of Coed Pen Y Bwlch is mostly fir, planted perhaps for harvesting. The mid area is mature oak and some large sycamore. There’s a beautiful old crab apple tree on the water course border to the east. Thick ivy vines cling to ancient huge oaks, and gnarly blackthorn and holly can be found here. The lower part is partly younger saplings, a lovely area where nature thrives. In amongst these trees we've seen rowan, ash, holly, willow and many other varieties.


During our work in the woodland we have been lucky enough to see Red Deer grazing outside our tents in the early morning. There are also a few badger dens, some old and some active. We've also witnessed peregrine falcons which we think are nesting on the nearby hill.

Spring and summer sees numerous butterflies and insects.

The birdlife is diverse, from Canadian Geese nesting on the lake at the bottom of the hill, to large buzzards and kites circling overhead. We've also been lucky enough to witness peregrine falcons around the top area of the woodland mid summer.

The woodland and fields are full of life the whole year round.


Coed Pen Y Bwlch has an old forestry clearing track running southeast through the woodland. This track has a slight gradient making easy access into the woodland. At the top of the woodland there is a flat grassy meadow.
