Coed Gelli Dawel - SOLD, Carmarthenshire - Nearly 6 ½ acres, £45,000

Coed Gelli Dawel - SOLD
Coed Gelli Dawel - SOLD
Carmarthenshire

Located high up above the valley, this easily accessible mixed woodland offers stunning views in a quiet and peaceful location.

Coed Gelli Dawel is part of a larger area of woodland perched atop a plateau in the quiet and secluded hills of Carmarthenshire. It is in fact at the very western reaches of the Brechfa Forest which can be seen to the east. Pastureland stretches away on all sides to the west.

The woodland is reached by a minor public road from the A485 which leads up through Pantygof Farm and through open pastureland with wonderful views stretching away on all sides. This makes access very easy and reliable all year round and in all weathers. The incredible peace of the hill top location of Gelli Dawel is immediately apparent.

There are natural clearings throughout the wood and as overall the ground is flat this woodland is perfectly suited for camping, picnicing or woodland and bushcraft activities. Underfoot, the forest floor is incredibly soft, cushioned either with thick moss or tussocky grass.

Ancient oak woodland provides a lovely aspect on the north side and from the western boundary of the wood are stunning views over the surrounding valley.

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.

Trees

The road enters the larger woodland surrounding Coed Gelli Dawel through overstood oak coppice which has resulted in wonderfully misshapen gnarly oak trees creating very atmospheric surroundings.

Gelli Dawel itself is predominantly mature larch with a proportion of broadleaf growing between, in the main, semi mature oak as well as some sycamore, birch and beech. There are some great specimens of mature oak found along the southwestern boundary.

An SPHN (Statutory Plant Health Notice) has been served on the woodland confirming the presence of Phytophthera ramorum in the larch in the woodland. This is an unfortunately common tree disease affecting Japanese larch in the UK and is now found extensively throughout the UK. This means if the owner wished to process the larch commercially, it would need to be transported by an authorised haulier and sent to an authorised sawmill.

Otherwise, it is permitted to fell and use the larch within the woodland, for building shelters or for firewood for example, without any restriction.

The sympathetic felling of the larch would present a good opportunity to replant with a diverse range of native broadleaf species, thereby renewing this woodland in this stunning location for decades to come and beyond.

Wildlife

Song birds are plentiful here, including treecreepers and wrens, and some of the wild plants include bilberries, wood sorrel and masses of bluebells in spring.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Gelli Dawel is accessed directly off a minor public road, offering excellent all year round access to all vehicles.

A track, accessed off the main road, which runs along the entire length of the woodland's southern boundary, parallel with but just outside this boundary, provides four wheel drive access to the wood. This private track is shared with the adjacent woodland although it is probably rarely used by them as that woodland has its own larger entrance. This could be useful for extracting felled timber for firewood from the woodland or for delivering camping supplies to a mid point of the wood.

Local area and history

A few minutes up the road from Gelli Dawel is the well-known local pottery Siramik which offers courses as well as B&B accommodation.

Coed Gelli Dawel is located under 10 miles from Carmarthen with good access to the M4.
