SOLD: Cors Gwyddau £49,000 Freehold


Cors Gwyddau is a meadow separated into two distinct areas. It’s situated at the bottom of the Troed Ewig woodland. The western meadow is a large expanse of flat grass land. It’s fringed with borders of willow, beech, oaks and a fence. Running along these borders are water courses. The eastern meadow has a small newly established pond. This field also has two majestic ash trees. The area is easily accessible through the main entrance in the west or a smaller gateway to the main track to Troed yr Ewig.

The boundary to the neighbouring meadow is the centre of a watercourse, the north and east boundaries are the entrance tracks. There are numerous water courses running along the boundaries to the meadows.

There is a flat area where a vehicle can be parked through the main entrance by the neighbouring Meadow (Pwll y Bedol).

This area is full of nature, and there are resident mallard ducks and Canada geese; in the summer the meadow is home to butterflies, insects and dragonflies.

The lower-lying areas of Cors Gwyddau appear on the Unified Peat Map of Wales. This means there are possibly grants available for restoration.

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.


Cors Gwyddau is mostly a meadowland, but each of the two sections are bordered with hedge row and trees. There are oak, willow and beech amongst others in these areas.


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.

Spring and summer sees numerous butterflies and insects.

The birdlife is diverse, from Canadian Geese nesting on the lake, to large buzzards and kites circling overhead. The woodland and fields are full of life the whole year round.

Though small and freshly cleaned, the pond has some really interesting plants in it, the spring will bring colour. There's also a variety of amphibian life; this guide from the Amphibian and Reptile Trust will be of interest!


Cors Gwyddau is a mostly flat meadowland. Its southern boundary is a marshy area rich in insect life. It has a newly dug out pond next to a slightly raised area, perfect for camping.

The boundaries are clearly marked in Aqua Marine. The boundary on the south and west are the centre of the water course.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Cors Gwyddau is accessed along the main track into the woodlands, to the west of the first parking area. Follow this track along and then take the first fork left where you will see two gates, one for Pwll Y Bedol and the left hand one for Cors Gwyddau.

Inside the gate there is a flat area suitable for a vehicle.

The two areas of Cors Gwyddau are accessed along this boundary.

There are no public footpaths on this land, just tracks where animals have grazed over the years.

There is a second entrance gate to Cors Gwyddau on the main entrance track off the road. This is a locked gate, the key will be available upon purchase.

Local area and history

This area is right on the edge of the Cambrian mountains and isn't too far from Llyn Vyrnwy. The 6000 acre Dyfnant Forest (described by Lonely Planet as being "where a well-signposted maze of forestry tracks culminates in one enormous hill before descending rather spectacularly toward Lake Vyrnwy").

Standing at 335m behind the meadows and woodlands is the hill, Moel Bentyrch. Here you will find the old settlement of Pen y Bwlch (Top of the Pass) a testament to a much older community in this area.

Locally the area is steeped in drover and farming history. Nearby is St Erfyl's church, named after Erfyl, rebuilt in 1870. It contains the remnants of a 15th-century shrine. The circular churchyard has in it a gravestone from either the 5th or 6th century commemorating the death of a young girl, identified locally and possibly the daughter of Saint Padarn and a cousin of Saint Cadfan.
