SOLD: Coed Danycoed £65,000 Freehold


Coed Danycoed is a long woodland that stretches along a north facing slope with lovely open views across the valley and a lake below, to the wooded hillside opposite.

Its borders are clearly defined by access tracks on all sides apart from a short section of its southern boundary which it shares with neighbouring woodland. It is advised that vehicle access is limited to four wheel drive only, and the short stretch of track into the entrance of the woodland is steep.

The large parking area that's been created within the woodland at its eastern tip is a lovely area for taking in the birdsong and enjoying the surrounding woodland, and there is plenty of space for all kinds of woodland activities or making camp with views out through and across the tree tops.

There are other level areas through the eastern part of Coed Danycoed which could be used as camping spots, and an old forest track provides a useful levelled and fairly clear way through it, joining up with the shared access track part way along the southern boundary.

A public footpath runs through the eastern side of the woodland, a short section of it aligning with the track at the entrance to Coed Danycoed.

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.


There's a good quantity of oak in Coed Danycoed, interspersed with a smattering of beech, birch, rowan and some alder in its lower reaches.

Wild bilberry or vaccinium myrtillus is found in quantity at forest floor level, as well as wildflowers such as scarlet and yellow pimpernel, herb Robert and holly here and there.


The quantity of birdlife here with accompanying song is fabulous, and woodpecker can be heard drilling for grubs. The wood warbler's distinctive call has been heard, and the song thrush - and there have been sightings of chiffchaff, blackbird, robin and wren.


A very generous sized level area has been created at the woodland entrance at the western end of the woodland, with plenty of space to set up a timber stack, do some green woodworking, or to make camp.

Local area and history

The reservoir in the valley bottom used to provide water for Carmarthen but has been decommissioned for several years now. Throughout Cwm Tawel small brick structures can be seen, chambers for accessing the network of channels built to carry spring water to the reservoir when it was supplying Carmarthen with water, under the management of the Carmarthen Corporation Water Works in the late 19th C.

Nearby is the Dan-y-Coed Halt, the end of the line of the 4 mile stretch of the Gwili Railway, one of the last few stretches of functioning steam railway in the U.K. The 8 mile round trip takes you through four stations along the picturesque railway line which runs along the Afon Gwili through steeply wooded hillsides.

Location map


From Carmarthen take the A484 north for approximately 5 miles towards Cynwyl Elfed.

After passing Carmarthen Demolition yard (known locally as Barretts) with railway sleepers on the left, look out for a white house on the left (formerly the Rock and Fountain Inn) and a small waney-edge timber clad shed just beyond it, with a Woodlands for Sale sign on it, and the entrance gate is immediately between the two, on the left.

Turn in carefully and enter the code into the gate lock and wait for the gate to open automatically. It will also close again automatically. (Please contact local manager before your visit for the code).

After a short distance you will come to a locked gate. Please park here, without blocking the track or the adjacent driveway and continue, over the gate, on foot.

Follow the track straight ahead and up the hill, passing a gate on the left hand side of the track. Continue up the track until you come to a third unlocked gate, go through it following the track around to the right and take the second track on the left. Follow this track for some distance until you see the entrance to Coed Danycoed on your right marked with a wooden name board and a Woodlands for Sale sign.
