Coed Allt Yr Ffynnon (Springbank Wood), Ceredigion - Almost 4 acres, £25,000

Coed Allt Yr Ffynnon (Springbank Wood)
Coed Allt Yr Ffynnon (Springbank Wood)
Ceredigion

Coed Allt Yr Ffynnon is a hillside woodland with healthy young growth of conifer and mixed broadleaf plus a scattering of young oak left to grow on following a clearfell. There are beautiful views out over facing hills.

Coed Allt yr Ffynnon is part of the larger woodland known as Coed Ffridd Cwmere, situated near the small village of Bont-goch.

Situated in its elevated position means there are stunning views northwards across the valley, which can be especially enjoyed high up on the woodland's southern boundary. Part of this boundary runs along a lovely old dry stone wall, and the whole boundary is delineated by an excellent stretch of stock fencing.

There are two strong springs in the wood, of great benefit to the woodland owner, and to wildlife. Different catchment methods could be considered, from pond creation, to tanking or building a stone cistern.

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

This wood has been cleared felled in the last 10 years, leaving the oak trees to grow on.

There is plenty of healthy natural regeneration of both conifer, mainly consisting of western hemlock, and some broadleaf including oak, birch and rowan. Amongst the many grasses, there is also gorse, rosebay willowherb, foxglove and herb robert to be found among other wildflowers benefitting from the sunny aspect of the slope.

This wood offers an ideal opportunity to get stuck into some replanting to make it your own. There is a restocking requirement from Natural Resources Wales following the clearfell, primarily for sitka spruce. It should be possible to change the restocking requirement with NRW, especially in light of the quantity of natural regeneration, or in favour of preferred species to be planted, if the aim was to replant with native broadleaf.

Wildlife

There is abundant birdlife here, and kites and buzzards are regularly seen circling on thermals.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Coming from Talybont there is excellent vehicle access to the wood. A gated entrance off the minor public road leads onto a newly built stoned track. The first section of track climbs up a steepish incline, manageable for 2 wheeled drive vehicles in good weather. The main track continues through the wood towards the Coed Allt Yr Ffynnon parking area, which is suitable for a four wheeled drive vehicle.

The neighbouring woodland owner has a right of way over a small section of track which cuts across the eastern tip of the woodland.

Activities

Lots of walking to be done, 60 miles of the Ceredigion coast path plus the Cambrian mountains has a range of walking trails, exploring woods and waterfalls...

Local area and history

The nearest village is Talybont with two pubs to choose from The Black Lion Hotel (yBlac as they call themselves) and the White Lion. The buzzy town of Aberystwyth is under half an hour away to the south, and the lovely market town of Machynlleth less than half an hour away to the north, with all amenities on offer.

Also within easy reach is the wonderful Ceredigion coast line with much to explore!

Just north of Machynlleth is the Centre of Alternative Technology, fount of knowledge and wisdom as we go forward into a hopefully more environmentally aware age.
