Banc Yr Helyg - SOLD, Bridgend - Over 4 acres, £29,000

Banc Yr Helyg - SOLD

Within easy reach of Cardiff or Swansea and only fifteen or so minutes from the M4, travelling up to Banc yr Helyg transports you, in a very short time, out of the busy and into the buzz of insect life, the quiet of big skies and rough furze of common land stretching away before your eyes, calming the mind and filling the lungs with clean air.

Banc yr Helyg extends from the main entrance gate and all along the left of the access track, the full width of Gelli Feddgaer as the larger woodland is known. It is made up of both the north and south banks of a good sized stream. This stream feeds into the Afon Ogwr Fach, which feeds the Afon Ogwr which meets the Bristol Channel at Ogmore on Sea with its castle, estuary with fun stepping stones and expansive, sandy beach; a favourite for dog walks.

The woodland is a mix of conifer and broadleaf. A stand of mature larch makes up most of the north western quarter, a sloping bank with the stream bed at its foot rising up to a grassy bank at the top, pretty with bluebells, which runs along the fence line of the northern boundary. From this high point there are bucolic views out over the fields to the hills and heath of the common land beyond.

The stream which bisects Banc yr Helyg runs energetically over rocks and pebbles, forking and creating flat areas thick with ferns, thriving in the damp environment.

South of the stream the land slopes back up to the track. Tree growth is mainly broadleaf on this side, a mixture of oak, ash and sycamore and some areas of hazel coppice. The parking area is half way along the length of Banc yr Helyg, a pull in off the shared access track, and a short way down the bank from here you will find a bench for a sit-down, sited in a level area which has potential for camping.

There is the opportunity to access local walks such as the Ogwr Ridgeway Walk which passes across common land just south of the woodland.

Nearby Blackmill has a Londis for basic supplies but Bridgend and even Cardiff are within easy reach for any necessities.

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.

  • Price: £29,000 Freehold
  • Location: Blackmill, Bridgend
  • Size: Over 4 acres for sale


The boundaries to Banc yr Helyg are marked in mauve paint on marker stakes, trees and fence posts.
