As you come to the entrance of Mees Wood, a hand-crafted rustic ride stop is in the centre of the track, and marks the beginning of the Woodland.
The track after the entrance leads straight down to a junction with three turnings. If you take a left turn, the track takes a sharp turn and leads down to a stream. The water frontage is an especially attractive aspect of this woodland, as the ground is elevated which means a scenic overview is easily attainable. At the bottom of the path, closest to the river, there is a gorge which the stream rushes through. This entire area is surrounded by semi-mature broadleaf trees including oak and ash trees. The sounds which can be heard from this area provide a perfect combination of excitement and tranquillity;
Alternatively, taking a right turn at the bottom of the track takes you to a large oval clearing. This clearing mainly consists of conifer but it also contains a large concentration of ash trees. Due to the thick canopy of the conifers, the clearing has a very secluded feel but the inclusion of the ash trees counters this and lets sunlight into the area. These two factors combined result in a wonderfully peaceful and open area with the benefits of the privacy. Despite being secluded, the clearing does have a substantially open feel to it. This can be attributed to the fact that the clearing leads into the rest of the wood, providing a clear view of the inside of the wood which encourages exploration into the denseness of the forest. Within the clearing, there are multiple suitable camping areas, and a hand-made smooth, rustic bench made from timber within the woodland. This is perfect for taking a rest to listen to the sound of the river or even potentially glimpse a sighting of some local wildlife. The ground in the clearing is fairly soft and predominantly covered by moss and grass, making an even more appealing camping area.
If the track is followed all the way past the clearing, it will eventually lead to another flat area at the bottom of the wood. This is a notable area because there is no significant ground vegetation which means it would require little work to be further improved. However, there are signs that this area was previously used to coppice hazel so this species of tree is abundant in this particular part of the woodland. After some exploration, this area eventually leads to a delightful view of the stream. Furthermore, the boundary of the wood itself is extremely close to the stream so it is accessible if so desired. From this area, the flowing of the river can be heard, with the sound of the droplets splashing on the river bed as they plunge down the minute waterfalls. Many different species of flowers can be found within the woodland. For instance, a white blanket of snowdrops envelopes the ground in this area.
The boundary of this woodland includes some fields containing livestock such as sheep and cattle. In some areas of the woodland, bird nests can be spotted high up in the trees along with signs of other wildlife including burrows. There are varied birds seen in and around the woodland such as pheasant, kite, buzzard, robin and even woodpeckers can be heard at certain times.
The ground flora of this woodland contains different species of flowers such as snowdrops and bluebells and various types of fungi. However, in certain areas bramble, bracken and nettles are quite common.
The wood is two miles from the thriving village of Berriew, on the beautiful Montgomery Canal, where an aqueduct takes the canal over the river Rhiw. The River Severn, and the Dolydd Hafren Nature Reserve, are just the other side of Berriew. Montgomery, Welshpool and Newtown are nearby for local amenities.
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.
