SOLD: Bailey Wood (Coed Bailey) £175,000 Freehold


A fairly rare opportunity to get the whole package : stream, meadow and oak woodland with great access in a beautiful quiet location!

Access is through a gate directly off a quiet minor road, bringing you to a short stretch of grassy ride which then opens out into a level, tree fringed area of meadow grassland. There is ample space here for setting up camp or building a shelter, and it feels private and sheltered.

Running along the eastern side of the meadow is the Deuddwr Brook, a substantial, fast flowing stream, and of course a great asset to campers and wildlife alike. On the far side of the brook, the land slopes up before levelling off somewhat at the peak of the hill. These slopes are wooded, almost exclusively oak, and this extends up to the top of the hill. Underfoot is mainly grass and fern with plenty of space between making for relatively easy, albeit uphill access through the woodland!

Fording the stream at the southeast corner of the meadow, it's possible to take a vehicle further into the land following the grass trackway which hairpins once back across the slope bringing you to a point about half way up the hill. There are lovely views out across surrounding fields from the top.


Oak is the predominant species growing here, particularly in the eastern half of the woodland. Towards the western side, around the meadow and extending down the western boundary alongside the Deuddwr Brook, there is more variety of species including ash, hazel, field maple, holly and alder.

Under the oak which covers most of the hillside is an understory of grasses and ferns, with bluebell, foxglove, wood anemone and oxalis to be found as well.


A lovely mixed habitat, open grassland, a generous stream and oak woodland all add up to a wonderful environment to support a great variety of wildlife, big and small.


The area of meadow here is a good size, ample for either creating an area for camping or for woodland activities. The access is easy too, a short and level distance in from the minor road.

Deuddwr Brook, a good sized stream and valuable water supply. Across the stream, the wooded hillside is mainly oak.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to Bailey Wood is excellent with direct private access off a minor road.

There is a ford crossing a short distance into the land which gives access to the wooded hillside.

There are no public footpaths through the land.


Bailey Wood would be a fantastic base for any and all woodland activities, camping, stream dipping, green woodworking with its own sustainable source of oak, as well as total immersion in the nature and wildlife of woodland and meadow.

This could be a great base for running some form of educational project or Forest School.

Fabulous walking is also on offer by way of the Glyndwr Way which it is possible to join in Felindre, close by Bailey Wood. The route describes a horseshoe starting in Knighton and ending in Welshpool (or the other way...) taking in Machynlleth on the Cardigan coast on the way!

Local area and history

Bailey Wood is named on the 1889 OS map of Beguildy which gives a nice sense of continuity in looking after this lovely woodland. The majority of the wood is classified as Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland, meaning it has been continuously under tree cover for at least 400 years.
