Coed Ogwr - SOLD, Bridgend - 6 acres, £39,000

Coed Ogwr - SOLD

There is a feeling of getting away from it all as one climbs the gentle approach to Coed Ogwr, through the larger woodland known as Gelli Feddgaer, of which it is a part.

Sheltered from the full brunt of the weather by rolling moorland on two sides, Coed Ogwr sits atop a hill sloping away on its northern aspect and enjoying full benefit of the sun on its southern and western side.

Tall graceful larch grown to about 50 ft make up the middle area of the woodland. Underfoot, between the trees, different grasses have proliferated creating a lovely open feeling and keeping undergrowth at bay, so it is easy to wander through and around the wood and enjoy the sun sloping through the trees.

The ground slopes fairly gently for the topmost central part of the land, falling away steeply at the edges of the wooded area down to fenceline on the western boundary at the bottom of the slope. All the boundaries are fenced except for the north eastern boundary, adjoining more private woodland, which is marked with stakes.

Towards the southwest of the land is a large area of regenerating woodland, formerly a clearfell site. It is now in its adolescence with a varied mix of conifer and broadleaf, oak, ash and birch growing healthily. This is interspersed with gorse, bramble and much evidence of wildflower such as willow herb and fox glove. With stewardship this will develop over the next 5-10 years into a species rich and biodiverse woodland, of great value to the wood in many ways but especially environmentally. A fence line runs along the southern boundary which adjoins private woodland.

Due to its south facing aspect the regrowth here is doing well.

There is a very large flat area of grassed over hardstanding at the entrance to Coed Ogwr. Some simple screening would create a very accessible picnic or camping area or alternatively there is plenty of room to park a camper van.

The nearby village of Blackmill has pubs and a small shop. Otherwise the large town of Bridgend approximately 7 miles away across the M4 can supply for most requirements.

There are also great walking routes to be found, joining the route of the Ogwr Ridgeway Walk which passes close by across the top of Mynydd y Gaer with wonderful sweeping views, not to mention the fascinating history of the area. It is believed that Mynydd y Gaer is where King Caradoc 1st, son of Arch, built his fabled fortress city Caer Caradoc in the first century AD, from where he fought the Romans from 42-51AD. His burial mound, Twyn Caradoc is to be found a short distance east of Gelli Feddgaer, on the highest point of Mynydd y Gaer.

The surrounding common land is part of a conservation project Coity Wallia Commons to improve and restore wildlife habitats and to encourage the proliferation of some rare species of butterfly and bee.

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.

Exit the M4 at Junction 36.

Take the A4061 (N) towards Bryncethin.

Carry on until you reach Blackmill, then turn right onto the A4093.

After 1/4 mile approximately, turn right onto a minor road, just after a bus stop, and just before a pillar post box you will see on the opposite side of the road.

Follow the road over a metal bridge, and then turn immediately left, over a cattle grid, onto a minor road parallel with the river for 1 mile.

Turn right at LLwyn Helyg farm onto the access road and you will come to the metal gate at the entrance to the woodland. Park here, but please don't obstruct the gate.

Follow the woodland track on foot up through the woodland and Coed Ogwr is about halfway up the track on the right hand side. You will see a fenced parking area and a small wooden gate into the woodland with wooden name plate.
