SOLD: Coed Rhosyn Bach £45,000 Freehold


A haven from the outside world, this pocket of hilltop land is a tonic for all the senses, birdsong, fresh clean breezes, stunning views out in all directions and the changing colours of the land with the ever changing elements. The easy access means bringing a camper van here is a piece of cake, and the entrance way to the woodland, surfaced with stone, provides a place to park up. This area could be expanded if required, but there are level areas amongst the undulations of the land which could make a nice camping spot too.

There is scope to add extra planting to the small groups of gnarly trees already present, increasing the wooded cover, and there is potential to add areas of hedgerow planting to create shelter belts. It is an exciting opportunity to really shape a future woodland in a glorious location, a wonderful place to get out into nature with family or to enjoy some solitude.

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.


The eastern boundary which runs along the shared access track is lined by well grown conifer, Douglas fir, hemlock and spruce which provide both shelter and privacy from the track.

From the eastern boundary looking west, the land slopes upwards in gentle undulations dotted with various species of broadleaf including oak, downy and silver birch, beech, rowan and holly all shaped by the elements.

Bracken is widespread underfoot.


Deer are known to wander through, otters have been seen in the vicinity on the Mon and Brec Canal and many bird species including great spotted and green woodpeckers and pied flycatchers, chiff chaff and mistle thrush populate the area.


Stunning views.

Peace and quiet.

Opportunities for new tree planting.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to the woodland is very good by way of a minor public road onto a hard surfaced forestry track.

No public footpaths run through Coed Rhosyn Bach but various public footpaths are easily accessible close by, connecting to some fabulous walking routes.


There is a lovely opportunity to expand the tree planting here in Coed Rhosyn Bach.

A fantastic place for family camping and to use as a base for exploring the many many activities : walking, climbing, cycling, narrow boating on offer in Bannau Brycheiniog.

Local area and history

The Roman fort of Gobannium was built at Abergavenny in approximately AD55 on the south west side of Ysgyrd Fach directly in view from Coed Rhosyn Fach.

There is also much industrial history locally with the Blaenavon World Heritage Site, which also boasts Big Pit National Coal Museum, Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway, Blaenavon World Heritage Visitor Centre and Blaenavon Ironworks.

The Mon and Brec Canal which you cross over enroute to the woodland, hugs the mountainside high above the Usk valley, a result of the skilful design of the 19thC engineer Thomas Dadford. At the time, it was employed to transport iron, coal and limestone to the port of Newport, towns of South Wales and further afield to the factories of the midlands but is now a beautiful and tranquil place transporting holiday makers in boats and providing a welcome flat route for walkers and cyclists.

Abergavenny, just northwest of the woodland within 10 minutes drive, is a lovely market town with good pubs, b&bs and restaurants and all amenities.
