Coed Twyn, Pembrokeshire - 5½ acres, £33,000

Coed Twyn

Coed Twyn is part of a larger woodland overlooking ancient Llawhaden castle. It was once a bishop's palace, with its origins in the 12th century and with some interesting history, the scene of a siege by the famous welshman Lord Rhys in the late 12th Century. Under the later bishop Thomas Bek's stewardship in the 13th century, the castle was enlarged and further fortified resulting in the ruins we can see today.

In addition to its nearby ancient history all of Coed Twyn and the majority of the surrounding woodland has been designated as Plantation on an Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS). There is a free survey of ancient woodland remnants and restoration management advice currently being offered by Coed Cymru which new owners could take up. Please contact the local managers for details.

The woodland itself is sloping in the main, but an old trackway running up through the middle of the wood from the entrance off the main track to the western boundary at the opposite perimeter of Coed Twyn, provides a level strip throughout, which could be utilised as a place to set camp or for bushcraft or other forestry activities. It also makes access easy from one side of the wood to the other.

To the left, below the track as one enters the wood is the largest area of conifer, mainly sitka spruce which would benefit from some thinning. This would provide a good source of timber for a woodland shelter, building dens or simply firewood.

Above the track, sloping up to the right-hand side, there is mixed broadleaf including ash, oak and birch and some wild cherry with plenty of young growth including holly and hazel. Underfoot lie a profusion of native bluebells, a real treat for the senses in late spring.

From the northern fenced boundary at the top of the slope, views stretch across green pasture land.

The lovely market town of Narberth is approximately 5 miles away with many independent shops, cafes and pubs and the famous coastline of Pembrokeshire is within half an hour's drive in most directions.

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.

Take the A40 westwards from Carmarthen towards Narberth, bypassing St Clears and Whitland.

Approximately 5 miles past Whitland turn right onto the B4313.

Follow this road for 1 mile and then turn left, signposted to Llawhaden.

Stay on this minor road for 1 mile, crossing the bridge.

Once over the bridge, turn right and continue through Holgan hamlet.

Soon you will see the gated entrance to the woodland on your left, a large Woodlands for Sale sign just after the turning. There is a lay-by about 200 yards further up the road where you can park when viewing to avoid blocking the gate.

Follow the track through the woodland on foot. After the track hairpin bends to the left you will come to the entrance to Coed Twyn on your right.
