Coed Cogan, Carmarthenshire - Over 7½ acres, £45,000

Coed Cogan

Part of a larger woodland known as Allt y Gelli, Coed Cogan is set in the hills above Carmarthen Bay, on a small peninsula between the estuary mouths of the Rivers Taf and Twyi.

There is wonderful coastline here with Pembrey Sands stretching for miles along the eastern half of Carmarthen Bay, Llansteffan beach and castle only minutes away by car and the beaches of Pendine, Saundersfoot and Tenby within half an hours drive to the west.

Coed Cogan is for the most part a plantation on an ancient woodland site ( PAWS) and although the trees found there today may not be ancient, they are very well established and straight grown, mainly conifer, a mix of Douglas fir and Norway spruce, excellent for any woodland projects, building a shelter or some kind of storage for tools or other woodcraft. The significance of the ancient woodland origins of the site is very relevant in the presence of important micronutrients in the soil and of remnant species of plant life which with careful management can be encouraged to flourish, improving and even restoring the biodiversity of the woodland to previous levels. A 2016 PAWS survey carried out by Coed Cadw/Woodland Trust assesses the ancient woodland features remaining, and makes recommendations for future management. The report is available on request.

The north western boundary runs along a farm track at the northern end and then is clearly delineated running along an old overgrown track with an earth bank.

A stream runs along the rest of the western boundary where it adjoins Coed Aberoedd, the neighbouring woodland. This is a great asset to the woodland, of great benefit to birdlife and other wildlife.

The boundary line then cuts away from the stream following the edge of a small escarpment which runs along the end of the track leading to the woodland.

The eastern and southern boundaries both adjoin private woodland.

Perhaps it is the fact that woodland has stood here for hundreds of years that lends such an atmosphere of deep calm and tranquility to Coed Cogan but it is indeed a place to find great peace and quiet.

Access to the woodland is excellent. The newly upgraded stone track leads directly off the main road through the larger woodland to the hardstanding area created at the entrance to Coed Cogan, ensuring all year round access for 2 or 4 wheel drive vehicles.

Located only approximately 15 minutes southwest of Carmarthen it is a very conveniently accessible wood.

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.
