Coed Cwcw - Cuckoo Wood, Pembrokeshire - Over 7⅓ acres , £35,000

Coed Cwcw - Cuckoo Wood

This wild and beautiful part of North Pembrokeshire has been shaped by the agricultural practices of man over the past few thousand years, the land being in turn burnt and then grazed. The resulting wet heathland with its diverse flora and fauna is fairly rare now and continues to be threatened, in part due to drainage or changes in farming practices, but happily and perhaps unintentionally the seed bank of this unique habitat finds itself in part protected by the forestry planting that took place here in the late 90's, mainly comprising of sitka spruce in the case of Coed Cwcw.

Underfoot Coed Cwcw is still very wet in many places, with numerous pools and and springs throughout the woodland. A soft spongy floor has built up amongst the dense planting of sitka, comprised of layer upon layer of spruce needles, and sprouting out of this several interesting specie of fungi.

In addition are great luxuriant mounds of various mosses, sphagnum and ordinary amongst others, glowing through the gloomy light in shades of green from deep emerald to acid yellow, again often sprouting a mushroom or two including milk caps.

From the northernmost corner of Coed Cwcw it is possible to walk along the boundary to the westernmost point of the wood, where you hit a good sized stream, Afon Glan-rhyd, which has carved its course between steep banks. This stream forms the boundary from the westernmost point down to the southern point of the wood.

Clearance of the tree canopy along the northern boundary has allowed sunlight in and heathland plants to flourish. The bright purple of heathers, yellow gorse, bilberry and bog myrtle thrive along here with great hummocks of mosses between birch, alder and willow.

Although the conditions in Coed Cwcw don't favour camping, the excellent access and large level hardstanding area at the entrance would easily accommodate a camper van or caravan. The Drovers Arms in the village of Puncheston has excellent food and Fishguard, only 15 minutes drive away, has every amenity on offer.

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.
