Coed Blorens £59,000 Freehold


A hilltop retreat which feels a million miles from the cares of the world, Coed Blorens sits overlooking Abergavenny and the Usk Valley. The hard standing area at the entrance to Coed Blorens, which is found on its northeastern side, is large enough for a camper van and is nicely sheltered by a line of thick conifer which grows along the eastern boundary, also giving privacy and shelter from the shared access track along which the boundary runs.

The land slopes gently up and away from the entrance, undulating to its highest point about halfway back towards the western boundary of the woodland, from where there are superb sweeping views out in all directions. To the northwest, the Blorenge rises majestically, to the east you can see Pen y Fâl and Ysgyryd through the tops of the conifers and Mynydd y Garn Fawr wraps round to the west. At this level the land flattens off and there are dotted about some hardy trees, standing alone and in small copses, providing good opportunity to supplement the planting and increase tree cover if you wished.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.


There is very little tree cover on Coed Blorens as it is mostly grass and bracken but there are dotted about some hardy upland species including oak, downy and silver birch and beech, shortened and shaped by their exposure to the elements.

Along the eastern boundary which runs along the track, there is a sheltering line of conifer, including Douglas fir, spruce and hemlock which also provide privacy from the track.


Deer are known to wander through, otters have been seen in the vicinity and many bird species including great spotted and green woodpeckers and pied flycatchers, chiff chaff and mistle thrush populate the area.


Breathtaking views

Set within Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) National Park

Great potential for new woodland creation

Excellent access

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to the woodland is very good by way of a minor public road onto a hard surfaced forestry track.

No public footpaths run through Coed Blorens but various public footpaths are easily accessible close by, connecting to some fabulous walking routes, including up the Blorenge!


Apart from providing remarkable surroundings within which to enjoy nature and its beauty, there is great potential here to plant trees, create copses and shelter belts and expand the areas of woodland. This will in turn benefit and support more wildlife and birdlife in the area.

There is plenty of space for a camper van here, and this is a fabulous place to camp in order to take advantage of all the Brecon Beacons have to offer, including walking, cycling and climbing.

Local area and history

The Roman fort of Gobannium was built at Abergavenny in approximately AD55 on the south west side of Ysgyrd Fach directly in view from Coed Gobannium.

There is also much industrial history locally with the Blaenavon World Heritage Site, which also boasts Big Pit National Coal Museum, Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway, Blaenavon World Heritage Visitor Centre and Blaenavon Ironworks.

The Mon and Brec Canal which you cross over enroute to the woodland, hugs the mountainside high above the Usk valley, a result of the skilful design of the 19thC engineer Thomas Dadford. At the time, it was employed to transport iron, coal and limestone to the port of Newport, towns of South Wales and further afield to the factories of the midlands but is now a beautiful and tranquil place transporting holiday makers in boats and providing a welcome flat route for walkers and cyclists.

Abergavenny, just northwest of the woodland within 10 minutes drive, is a lovely market town with good pubs, b&bs and restaurants and all amenities.
