Allt-yr-Sgwarnog (Hare Wood) - SOLD, Carmarthenshire - Almost 7 acres, £45,000

Allt-yr-Sgwarnog (Hare Wood) - SOLD
Allt-yr-Sgwarnog (Hare Wood) - SOLD
Carmarthenshire

Private and quiet, a mixed woodland with established conifer and broadleaf as well as offering a good opportunity for new planting.

Allt-yr-Sgwarnog, named for the hare seen sitting tall and then loping along the field boundary at the northern edge of the wood. A wonderful but sadly rare sight these days!

Huge amount of potential in this wood, set on a gentle south facing slope, and with the option to thin the larch and create clearings, an ideal prospect for camping or setting up a woodland workshop for putting timber to use. The area of ash is found at the southern side of the woodland so new planting will thrive in this light and sheltered spot.

At the entrance to Allt-yr-Sgwarnog, a short incline takes you out of the quarry and up to the stoned and level parking area, big enough for a camper and with peaceful views out through the lower tree canopy. The rushing of the Afon Asen at the bottom of the valley burbles in the background, along with all variety of birdsong including mewing of kites and the woodpeckers' knocking.

Trees

The planting in Allt-yr-Sgwarnog, dating back to 1993/4 is clearly divided into two sections. The northern section, making up approximately two thirds of the woodland is Japanese larch and the southern third is made up of ash. The larch is well grown, would benefit from thinning and this wonderful rot and insect resistant timber would provide a great material for a building project.

Sadly, Chalara Fraxinea (Ash Dieback) has afflicted the majority of the ash here, a situation that is unfortunately becoming commonplace throughout Wales and the UK. But like Nature, it's necessary to adapt, and out of this sad loss arises an opportunity to create new sustainable mixed broadleaf woodland with replanting, once the ash has been harvested and put to good use.

Amongst the larch and ash, elder, alder, birch and hazel grow as understory and wildflowers at forest floor.

Wildlife

True to it's name, hare have been spotted up near the field boundary.

Birds of all variety thrive here and bats are seen at dusk.

Features

Some areas of Allt Ffynnon Wen are classified as Ancient Woodland meaning it has been continuously wooded for over 400 years. As we understand more about the makeup of soil and its connected microhabitats, the significance of an ancient woodland habitat becomes greater, revealing the existence of an incredibly complex and irreplaceable environment supporting a huge network of interconnected flora and fauna above and below ground, the benefits of which could be said to extend beyond its immediate 'boundaries'.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to the woodland from the quiet country road is via a stone track which crosses two fields before reaching the locked gate at the entrance to Allt Ffynnon Wen where there is a small parking area. There is a combination code to open the gate.

From the entrance gate, a good stoned access track runs through the larger woodland. This track is accessible to any two-wheel drive vehicle as far as the quarry parking area in the middle of the woodland. The entrance to Allt-yr-Sgwarnog is directly off this quarry area.

There are no public footpaths through Allt Ffynnon Wen or through Allt-yr-Sgwarnog.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

The track through Allt Ffynnon Wen was previously a well-trodden route used by miners to access local mines. You can still see the relics of an old pub built to cater for miners on their way home, down in the woodland below Coed Ffordd y Glöwr.

Trelech is a quiet rural village located less than 2 miles away and has a small shop and public transport links. Trelech is located about 12 miles northwest of Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales. It is also 9 miles from Newcastle Emlyn, a historic market town.
