Chwarel Erw-bant (Erw-bant Quarry), Powys - 4 acres, £35,000

Chwarel Erw-bant (Erw-bant Quarry)
Chwarel Erw-bant (Erw-bant Quarry)
Powys

Chwarel Erw-bant woodland situated near Builth Wells, hosts a mixture of conifers and broadleaves and includes an attractive little quarry.

Situated near the market town of Builth Wells is Chwarel Erw-bant. As you enter the woodland you are greeted with a wonderful little quarry which certainly dates back to the nineteenth century. A brush cut path loops around the wood and above the quarry, which then leads to some clearings and the more private areas. The wood is designated as ancient woodland. This means that it has been continuously wooded for at least the last 400 years.

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.

Trees

Chwarel Erw-bant is a mixture of conifer and broadleaf woodland with a variety of species including mostly larch and ash as well as sycamore, oak and other broadleaves.

Features

From the entrance there is a recently brush cut footpath that leads to a handmade bench, situated just after a steep section of the path. This spot gives you a good view of the woodland, and enables you to take in the tree growth, either as you prepare yourself to walk along the rest of the path or for a little rest after the walk up. The bench is situated in a clearing that would be an ideal spot for camping as it offers the most seclusion. Situated throughout the woodland is an abundance of blackberries, which could serve as little snacks as you wander through the woodland. Just within the entrance is an attractive little quarry that could be used as a base.

Access, tracks and footpaths

There is good access into the wood with the entrance opening into the quarry. There is plenty of space to park a campervan in the quarry. There are no other vehicle tracks within the wood, although the path that runs parallel with the road would probably take a four wheel drive.

Local area and history

3 miles away is the village of Llanelwedd which hosts the annual Royal Welsh Show. The show brings the farming industry and rural communities together in a celebration of the best that British agriculture has to offer. The show lasts four days and attracts more than 200,000 visitors each year.

The lovely market town of Builth Wells is situated only 4 miles away. Here you will find a few local shops and eateries.
