Coed Gwas Y Neidr (Dragonfly Wood), Carmarthenshire - Just under 8 acres, £55,000

Coed Gwas Y Neidr (Dragonfly Wood)
Coed Gwas Y Neidr (Dragonfly Wood)
Carmarthenshire

Lovely broadleaf and conifer woodland with two streams, sheltered by surrounding woodland in a very quiet coastal location with access to the Wales Coast Path via a public footpath.

Coed Gwas Y Neidr, named for the dragonflies seen darting through the woodland is a beautiful, private broadleaf woodland with a good diversity of species within it. A small stand of mature Douglas fir mark the entrance to the woodland, giving way to mature oak, sycamore and silver birch to name some of the species present. There is plenty of young sapling growth, and also present in good quantity are holly and hazel, providing a good understory for wildlife and an indication of healthy growth for the future of the woodland. At the forest floor are many species of ferns, as well as honeysuckle, dog rose, oxalis and yellow pimpernel.

Coed Gwas Y Neidr has the great fortune of having acess to not one, but two streams. The larger stream cuts through the woodland on a north south axis at the woodland's mid point. It exits the woodland at its south western corner finally feeding into the Afon Cywyn, which in turn feeds into the Afon Taf. For this south western section, the boundary between Coed Gwas Y Neidr and the adjacent woodland Coed Taf runs along the mid point of the stream.

On the far side of this stream, in the western half of the woodland the trees mainly consist of conifer, predominantly Douglas fir. The trees are mature, well spaced, and it is easy work making your way around the woodland here as the conifer needle drop suppresses much of the undergrowth. This is a particularly peaceful and lovely part of the woodland.

The second stream which runs the length of its southern boundary from east to west is more seasonal but there is an area of yellow flag iris approximately half way along its route, an indicator of the presence of wet ground. The majority of the southern boundary of Coed Gwas y Neidr runs along the earth bank just beyond this seasonal stream.

For the most part, the woodland is level and there are many areas which would make a wonderful area for camping or relaxing or watching wildlife.

There is very good all year round vehicle access to the wood, and ample space for parking a camper van at the entrance to Coed Gwas Y Neidr.

At the woodland's northwestern corner, it is possible to join a public footpath adjacent to the boundary (it does not cross any part of Coed Gwas y Neidr) which after a short distance connects with the Wales Coast Path, providing 870 miles of fabulous walking along the entirety of Wales' beautiful and diverse coastline!

Nearby Llansteffan, travelling eastward along the coastal path, is a treat to visit with its dramatic castle, lovely beach and two good pubs as well as post office/general store. It's also possible to catch the amphibious ferry (featured on Radio 4!) across the Afon Twyi to Ferryside at certain times through the summer months.

Carmarthen, with all amenities and transport links, is only 20 minutes 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.
