Coed Cneuen - Nut Wood £55,000 Freehold


Positioned towards the middle of Coed Rhydtir, the larger woodland of which it is a part, Coed Cneuen benefits from the shelter of the woodland which surrounds it on all sides. It has access from the shared track on three sides; sloping away, quite steeply in parts, from the track running along its southern boundary down to its northern boundary, also marked by a track.

The entrance to Coed Cneuen, a stoned pull in area, is midway along the woodland's southern boundary, on its higher side and would accommodate a small camper van as long as it was four wheel drive to manage the steep section of track at the eastern point of the woodland.

Areas of rhododendron clump along the track; along with holly and hazel taking advantage of the light. The western end sees some mature sweet chestnut interspersed among the Douglas fir. Through the woodland canopy below are lovely views out over the neighbouring fields towards the hills beyond.

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.


A good number of stately Douglas fir are to be found in Coed Cneuen, grown on in good space which has allowed them to mature well. Douglas fir is a supremely good timber for building, amongst numerous other uses, due to its tensile strength, straight growth and rot resistance. A number of sweet chestnut are also found here with their lovely big serrated leaves, prickly nut casings and yellow catkins in summer. There are some small areas of rhododendron in here which need to be kept in check, but there is plenty of reward to be had from them in several forms including good firewood or charcoal if managed properly.


Douglas fir, chestnut and rhododendron are all fabulous for wildlife, providing food, nesting areas and year round cover. Rhododendron flowers are a magnet for bees too, although the resulting honey can be toxic to humans if ingested in too great a quantity. At a lesser quantity it can apparently be hallucinogenic so be aware!

There is a large badger sett in the neighbouring wood and badgers know no boundaries so you may be welcoming some visitors..


There are some lovely mature Sweet Chestnut here, fairly unusual in a Welsh woodland.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to Coed Cneuen is up a stoned forest track with some steep sections which we would advise is only suitable for four wheel drive vehicles. However access to the larger woodland Coed Rhydtir, of which Coed Cneuen is a part, is directly off the A487 and easily accessible to all vehicles all year round.

There are no public footpaths through Coed Cneuen or the larger woodland Coed Rhydtir.

Just north of Coed Rhydtir, it's possible to access a public footpath which links to the Wales Coastal Path at the northernmost tip of Aberystwyth.


There is opportunity here for creating wildlife or bird watching areas or perhaps constructing a stepped woodland walk through the steeper parts of the woodland, from where to take in the lovely views.

Local area and history

Aberystwyth is a buzzing university town with all amenities, good food and bars, and with its famous long Victorian seafront promenade and Wales' longest pier.

Up on Constitution Hill, at the north end of Aber is the cliff top Camera Obscura.

Ten miles or so inland are the world famous Devil's Bridge Falls and you could even get there on a steam train with The Vale of Rheidol Railway !
