Allt Tre-hyrn £149,000 Freehold


From the main entrance gate it's a picturesque route to the entrance of Allt Tre-hyrn, crossing the shallow ford, and along a forest track for a distance of about 200 metres which finally ends at the entrance to Allt Tre-hyrn.

The entrance opens here into the western sector of the woodland, a large area on the western side of the river, which is designated Ancient semi natural woodland. Here the ground is fairly level for the most part, sloping up gently to the western boundary which is fenced and overlooks neighbouring farm fields. There is a mix here of mature conifer, including some Douglas fir, Western hemlock along with various species of broadleaf.

Moving further northwards, a power line crosses the north western corner of the woodland in a north easterly-south westerly diagonal and the growth below this line needs to be kept to a maximum of 5 metres - which presents a potential area for coppice, a traditional method of woodland management ideally suited to species such as willow, alder, hazel or chestnut.

The river meandering in lazy bends from north to south, runs right through the middle of the woodland cutting a deeper grove through steeper banks as it reaches the southern part of Allt Tre-hyrn. Snowdrops clump along the banks in early spring followed by woodland anemone, bluebells amongst other woodland wildflowers later in the year, and golden saxifrage enjoying the damp river habitat.

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.


In part of the south western sector of the woodland there is an area of conifer mainly Douglas fir, planted in 1964. This planting extends down the western boundary and also includes western hemlock and some spruce.

A large area in the western quarter of the wood, to the west of the river is mixed broadleaf and this is the area of of Ancient semi natural woodland. The broadleaf here includes some oak, beech, birch, ash and alder with willow, holly, hazel, hawthorn at understory and around the fringes of the woodland. There are thickets of bramble and ferns at forest floor throughout, down to the banks of the river.

In the eastern sector of Allt Tre-hyrn is a stand of Sitka spruce and mixed broadleaf species make up the south eastern corner of the woodland.


The varied habitats of the surrounding area, hedgerows and pasture land along with the mudflats along the Twyi and Taf estuaries, and Allt y Hendre's Ancient Woodland status, result in a richness of wildlife, some quite rare. Local wildlife recordings have made note of Lesser and Greater Horseshoe bats (not commonly seen these days) along with Pipistrelles, Noctules and Long eared bats attracted to the wooded valleys. Otters have been spotted locally along with hedgehogs and badgers. Heron, curlew, oystercatcher and Golden plover are drawn to the mud flats of the Taf Estuary. Other coastal birds such as sandpipers, ringed plovers and egrets can be seen and heard at the mouths of the Twyi and Taf, and far more common, red kite can be seen circling overhead.

Level areas

Access, tracks and footpaths

The main entrance to Allt yr Hendre is accessed directly off a minor public road. There is a large level area here for shared parking (please do not obstruct for other woodland owners) and for use as a temporary timber stacking area while undertaking woodland management, as long as access is maintained for other woodland owners at all times.

Further access to Allt Tre-hyrn is via a shallow ford and along the track, passing the entrance to Coed Garthen on your left and continuing until you come to the entrance to Allt Tre-hyrn, marked by a ride stop with a wooden name board.

This track can be soft in wet weather and due to the ford crossing, we would recommend 4 wheel drive access only.

There is a public footpath through the larger woodland Allt yr Hendre, but not through Allt Tre-hyrn itself.


The public footpath through Allt yr Hendre connects with the Wales Coast Path close to the banks of the River Taf, ultimately providing 870 miles of fabulous walking along the entirety of Wales' beautiful and diverse coastline!

Just beyond Llansteffan on the B4312 to Carmarthen, is the Towy Boat Club for anyone who wished to canoe or fish for the famous sewin (sea trout) in season.

Local area and history

To the southeast is the lovely village of Llansteffan which has the ultimate castle perched on its headland, a great beach, fish and chips and a seaside cafe as well as pubs, post office, shop and B&Bs.

To the west is the River Taf, one of three estuary rivers, along with the Twyi and the Gwendraeth which jointly flow into Carmarthen Bay.

Across the River Taf is Laugharne, where you can visit Dylan Thomas' former home, The Boathouse, now a museum, and his writing shed perched high looking out across the " sloeback, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboat bobbing sea."

Carmarthen is only 20 minutes away with all amenities and transport links.
