Allt Y Castell, Carmarthenshire - 2½ acres, £19,000

Allt Y Castell
Allt Y Castell
Carmarthenshire

A quiet, predominantly conifer woodland, in a beautiful coastal location with good access.

The woodland's location on the peninsula between the rivers Taf and Twyi adds to the lovely feeling of tranquility and seclusion which the long, meandering track through the larger woodland Allt y Gelli to reach Allt y Castell also fosters.

Part of Allt y Gelli is designated as PAWS (Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site) and in fact the majority of Allt y Castell comes under this category. A PAWS report on the neighbouring woodland (Coed Cogan) carried out by Coed Cymru actually extended into a large part of Allt y Castell and described three zones configured as three roughly parallel strips running in south west to north east axis.

Zone 1 is the westernmost and slimmest of these strips, extending along the trackside and is described as semi-natural woodland of semi mature oak, ash and sycamore with a healthy understorey and diverse ground flora including bluebell, wood sorrel, dog's mercury and several specii of fern.

Zone 2, the middle strip, consists mainly of Sitka spruce and Japanese larch, planted in the early 1990's, with ferns, mosses and some bluebell growing beneath, remnants of the ancient woodland ground flora. A small number of broadleaf specimens, mainly birch, have taken hold amongst the conifer.

The eastern section of the woodland, Zone 3 consists of mainly pole stage broadleaf; birch and oak with some small areas of Sitka and beneath, well established woodland flora, including bluebell, delicate wood sorrel and anemone (both ancient woodland indicators), and ferns.

A copy of the PAWS assessment report can be provided by email if requested. It also provides management advice for restoring the woodland.

The remains of old forestry tracks traversing the woodland south to north provide welcome level areas which could be utilised for camping or for forestry or bushcraft activities.

The proximity of the beautiful coastline, in one direction the estuary of the Taf and across its water, Laugharne, where Dylan Thomas' boathouse perches and in the other direction, the nearby beaches of Llansteffan with its dramatic hilltop castle, all add to the atmosphere of the area, and make this a fabulous woodland for family forestry.

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.
