Coed Gafr (Goat Wood ), Carmarthenshire - Almost 6¾ acres, £49,000

Coed Gafr (Goat Wood )

Coed Gafr is named for the neighbouring farm, Corngafr which means goat fold or shelter and indeed much of it is the right terrain for mountain goats as the two sides of the wooded valley come together here at the head to form a steep bowl, southfacing.

For the two legged variety of goat, your scrambling efforts are richly rewarded with thrilling views out from the top of the slopes as well as a great sense of achievement for having made it up there. Depending on which part of the woodland you are in, these views either take in miles of rolling hills to the east, or look back at the western slopes of the wooded bowl that make up Gafr. A satisfying view of your own domain! On the western slopes of Gafr are some wonderful mature specimens of oak and ash as well as a stand of majestic well spaced Douglas fir. Ferns grow underfoot, and bluebells carpet the upper slopes.

There are two streams running down through the woodland, a larger one near the western boundary which finally runs out of the woodland through a culvert under the track and continues through the neighbouring woodland, and a smaller more seasonal stream at the mid point of the wood, along which grow some sizeable oaks and which meanders down near the entrance point to the wood behind the parking area. Here also are the remains of what may have been a very small stone cottage or animal shelter, perhaps for those fabled goats!

Moving in an easterly direction around the bowl of Coed Gafr, the growth is younger and more dense, comprising of a lovely mixture of oak, rowan, willow, birch, and some healthy looking young spruce all interspersed with gorse with its marvellous yellow coconut scented flowers. Although its difficult to traverse this section of the woodland on foot at the moment, as the growth is young and dense, and the slope fairly steep, it would be possible to cut a lower and higher path to form a circular walk. Alternatively come back down to the main access track and follow it round the bend to the eastern boundary where its possible to follow the boundary line up the slope (its a steep scramble initially) to where it meets the northern/northeastern boundary, a fence line onto fields and wonderful views out northeasterly. From here you can look back at the western half of Gafr on the opposite slope. Here also is the somewhat concealed way to the remains of a small quarry which has resulted in a fabulous large, flat, sheltered area protected by the overhanging rock face on one side and with views out over the woodland to the front- all a little tricky to access at present, but that just seems to add to the magic...

All in all, a woodland with potential for a lot of adventure and fun as well being a place of great peace and beauty.

Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales, is approximately 20 minutes away and has all amenities as well as connections by rail and bus. The M4 is also directly accessible from here via the A48.

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.
