Coed Glangrwyney - SOLD, Powys - 5½ acres, £49,000

Coed Glangrwyney - SOLD
Coed Glangrwyney - SOLD
Powys

Stretch of broadleaf woodland on the north bank of the River Usk near Crickhowell. on the Powys/Monmouthshire border, with some lovely specimens of mature broadleaf, river access and easy vehicle access into the wood directly off the road.

Wild swimming in the Usk? Be careful not to disturb the otters...

It's unusual to have the opportunity to buy a stretch of woodland along the banks of the River Usk, but here it is!

Accessed directly off the A40 which makes for great ease, and the possibility of bringing a camper van straight into the wood. Just inside the entrance gate, at road level, and separated from the road by a stone wall, there is a large area of level ground, plenty of space for parking and camping before the ground drops away down to the level of the river. Large clumps of bamboo here and there lend an exotic air to the landscape.

Dropping away steeply, the ground slopes down to the lower level of the woodland, riverside. A path has been cut through the undergrowth from the far end of the clearing furthest away from the gate, leading down to the lower level. Here further large mature specimens of various broadleaf can be found; sycamore, ash, oak and beech and many wonderful ferns, some so large they resemble tree ferns. There is plenty of space between the trees and it is flat here so once you have navigated the slope it's easy to make your way through the woodland to the waters edge. It feels private and peaceful down here and provides a fabulous opportunity to quietly watch the comings and goings of all sorts of wildlife on the river. Otters have managed to re establish themselves on the Wye and the Usk since being made a protected species in 1981 and with the improving health of the waterways are known to populate these areas now, so the sighting of little webbed pug prints on the sandy banks here would seem to indicate that otters are indeed present.

A little inlet has formed some 20 or so metres in from the water's edge which you can cross (or go round the western end of) in order to get to the bank of the Usk in the eastern half of the woodland, which adds an extra sense of adventure.

The eastern boundary is delineated by a stream running north to south until it reaches the inlet where the boundary doglegs east for some metres in a straight line and then due south until reaching the edge of the Usk.

Nearby Crickhowell has lovely shops, pubs (including The Bear, an old coaching inn which dates back to 1432). and cafes for good food and supplies and the surrounding Brecon Beacons National Park has endless stunning areas to explore and enjoy. Even closer, The Bell in Glangrwyney is only a five minute walk away.

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.
