Coed Taf, Carmarthenshire - 6 ½ acres, £45,000

Coed Taf
Coed Taf
Carmarthenshire

A quiet, private corner of beautiful broadleaf woodland with a stream along its northwestern boundary.

Coed Taf is found on the westerly edge of a larger woodland known as Allt y Gelli which in turn nestles in the rolling coastal hills on the eastern banks of the Afon Taf. The location is secluded and peaceful, and the surrounding area is rich in natural and human history. A public footpath which runs nearby joins up with the Wales Coast Path: 870 miles of amazing walking along the entirety of Wales' beautiful and diverse coastline!

Just on the opposite banks of the Afon Taf is Dylan Thomas' Boathouse in the pretty village of Laugharne, which must have provided some inspiration for his later writing of Under Milk Wood.

Coed Taf itself has a good variety of tree species present, and a healthy understory of young growth coming through under the high canopy of some magnificent oak and sycamore, alongside a good proportion of silver birch and some good specimens of mature Douglas fir. At forest floor level are many ferns, and honeysuckle amongst other wildflowers such as wood sorrel.

The stream that makes up the northwestern boundary is a great asset to the woodland, attracting insect, bird and other wildlife; as well as a source of water for the woodland owner. It flows in a southwesterly direction out of the wood feeding into the Afon Cywyn, a tributary of the Afon Taf.

The southern boundary, an external perimeter of the woodland, is fenced and overlooks fields which slope gently away to the south west.

Overall, the woodland is largely level and there are a number of places which have great potential for a good camping spot. This would be a wonderful wood for family forestry and a great place from which to explore further afield, by foot or alternatively on two wheels via the nearby National Cycle Network route.

There is very good vehicle access to the wood and a really attractive large space for parking a camper van at the entrance to Coed Taf, flanked by some magnificent oaks.

Nearby is Llansteffan with a lovely pub and post office/general store as well as a beautiful dog friendly beach and dramatic castle. Carmarthen, twenty minutes away has all amenities and transport connections.

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.
