Coed Ffordd Y Glöwr (Miner's Way Wood), Carmarthenshire - Just over 5 acres , £45,000

Coed Ffordd Y Glöwr (Miner's Way Wood)
Coed Ffordd Y Glöwr (Miner's Way Wood)
Carmarthenshire

A lovely camping wood, sheltered and private in broadleaf woodland with beautiful leafy views.

Coed Ffordd y Glöwr is part of a larger woodland, Allt Ffynnon Wen, located close to the village of Trelech in Carmarthenshire. It nestles within a small valley with the Afon Asen running through it. Coed Ffordd y Glöwr sits in the middle of its south facing slopes, surrounded by woodland on three sides and bordered by fields on its northern boundary.

As a whole, Allt Ffynnon Wen is a combination of planting from the early 1990's and the 1950's, mostly block planted according to the system of the 1990's. Sadly, Chalara Fraxinea - Ash Dieback has affected the area of ash planting in Coed Ffordd y Glöwr, an affliction that is clearly evident throughout the country, but this has to be seen now as an opportunity for new sustainable woodland creation, once the ash has been extracted and put to use either as firewood or as timber.

Balancing out the sad loss of ash here, are the other broadleaf species present: oak, beech, silver birch, alder, hazel and willow amongst others; happily thriving and providing a wonderful habitat to be enjoyed, protected and nurtured for the future.

The levelled area which has been created in the woodland is a very generous size and in its elevated position with fabulous views out through the tree canopy creates a really wonderful and atmospheric escape from everyday life.

Trees

Since its planting in 1993/4 the woodland has developed in two different directions.

The northern half of the woodland, planted plantation style with ash, has unfortunately been afflicted with ash die back- but like Nature, we have to adapt, so this has to be seen as an opportunity to create a new sustainable woodland, once the timber has been harvested, either for firewood or for building projects, possibly within the woodland.

The southern third of the woodland, extending to the trackside, was planted with oak at the same time. These are maturing well, and this part of the woodland is developing really attractively.

Amongst the oak, hazel, silver birch, holly and some alder provide good variety, along with honeysuckle and wildflowers in spring.

Wildlife

Wildlife thrives in this haven tucked away deep in the Carmarthenshire hills. The south facing slopes catch sunlight encouraging butterflies and wildflowers, including great swathes of bluebells in spring.

There is a great variety of birdlife, treecreepers spotted and woodpeckers have been heard, and both kite and buzzard are seen circling above.

The oak tree, above all other species, supports an extraordinary range of insect life (and flora ) thus attracting many birds, and bats, seen in number at dusk, and excitingly a hare was spotted up by the field boundary in the neighbouring wood.

Features

Some areas of Allt Ffynnon Wen are classified as Ancient Woodland, meaning it has been continuously wooded for over 400 years. As we understand more about the makeup of soil and its microhabitats, the significance of an ancient woodland habitat becomes more important, revealing the existence of an incredibly complex and irreplaceable network of flora and fauna above and below ground, the benefits of which could be said to extend beyond its immediate 'boundaries'.

Access, tracks and footpaths

A good stoned access track runs through the larger woodland, accessed through the main entrance gate locked with a combination lock.

This track is accessible to any two wheel drive vehicle as far as the parking area located in the quarry area in the middle of the wood, but we would recommend a 4 wheel drive to continue from that point onwards and for access into Coed Ffordd y Glöwr itself, which is steep.

There are no public footpaths through Allt Ffynnon Wen or through Coed Ffordd y Glöwr.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

The track through Allt Ffynnon Wen was previously a well-trodden route used by miners to access local mines. You can still see the relics of an old pub built to cater for miners on their way home down in the woodland below Coed Ffordd y Glöwr.

Trelech is a quiet rural village located less than 2 miles away and has a small shop and public transport links. Trelech is located about 12 miles northwest of Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales. It is also 9 miles from Newcastle Emlyn, a historic market town.
