Coed Ceunant - SOLD, Ceredigion - 6½ acres, £45,000

Coed Ceunant - SOLD
Coed Ceunant - SOLD
Ceredigion

This woodland has so much variety of terrain and habitat within it; stands of young beech and oak; mature larch, Scots pine and Douglas fir; open grassy slopes; a dramatic rocky gorge and wonderful views, all with excellent access.

Coed Ceunant is a woodland of such potential and with so much to offer its quite hard to know where to start...At six and a half acres it's a manageable size, but big enough to almost lose yourself in!

The terrain and geography of the woodland is such that it feels far bigger and the variety of habitat make it feel like several woodlands rolled into one.

It all starts with easy gated access directly off a very quiet, minor road. An excellent track (shared access with other woodland owners) runs through the larger woodland known as Coed Pantsglodion and forms the northern boundary of Coed Ceunant. A short distance along this shared access track you will come to the entrance to Coed Ceunant on your right, marked with a ride stop.

From the ride stop, a private track wends up a gentle slope, flattening and widening out into a large level area, perfect for parking up a camper van or caravan, or for creating a working area for forestry or bushcraft activities with some lovely mature larch and Douglas fir to the right of the track.

Continuing up the track, steep in parts, (we would advise this section of track is only suitable for a four wheel drive vehicle), the land slopes down and away in a westerly direction. This area is scrubby with grasses, gorse and wildflowers such as foxglove, which have colonised these open west facing slopes. There are wonderful views out across the beautiful surrounding hills from here.

East of the track, the land slopes up fairly steeply before plateauing at the summit and exploring further up here brings you among mixed woodland, some broadleaf and a good proportion of mature conifer and some lovely Scots pine, well spaced enough for a healthy understory to have developed, with fern and grasses at forest floor. Emerging out of this woodland on the summit you are suddenly presented with stunning wide ranging views eastwards. This part of the woodland was clear felled recently and has been replanted in part and is also doing well with some lovely natural regeneration.

Back down to the southwestern corner of the wood, the open westerly slopes of Coed Ceunant are replaced by a stand of beech, the most serene and graceful of trees even if they are a little thuggish in preventing anything else from growing beneath them...These young beech make way for oak as the land slopes down towards the western boundary. Conifer, predominantly larch grow all along the boundary extending northwards all the way back to the main entrance.

It is possible to make a circular loop through and around Coed Ceunant utilising both entrance gates and tracks with shared right of way, south and north of the woodland, and the public road.

Both Aberystwyth and Machynlleth are within easy reach and both have good independent shops, cafes and restaurants and will cater for all supplies, both practical and pleasurable.

Just north of Mach is the fascinating Centre for Alternative Technology, so ahead of its time they were once thought of as a bit bonkers...! If only everyone had been so forward thinking.

Of course, much closer in Talybont, are the Black Lion Hotel and the White Lion pub, for recuperation after a hard day's forestry!

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.
