The woodland is situated south of the A40 and close to several of Carmarthen’s picturesque coastal areas. The woodland’s diverse habitats, ravines, stream and earth banks make it great for exploring and due to its size there is plenty to see. It has road frontage onto a quiet road and is surrounded by fields with an old fence line marking the boundary.
Access to the woodland is via a private entrance straight off a small lane. A belt of trees gives privacy from the road. Once through this tree belt you come into a clear area of wild grass meadow where some planting has been done within the last few years. Young trees are starting to populate this area.
A track leads from the gate to the middle of this open meadow where a fairly large area of hard standing has been created, near the pylon. There are two benches here from which you get a great aspect of the fields and hills that surround this woodland.
A split log board-walk across a wet area leads you out from the left side of the hard standing to the edge of the woodland and a path then continues into the stand of conifer trees where you will find the ground conditions free from much undergrowth and dry underfoot. It is easy to make your way through the pines and the path picks up again, marked by a small arrow, bending to the right and taking you to the bank of the stream that wends through this part of the woodland.
Here you will find a few earth banks to scramble up and down and you may have to cross and recross the windy stream when making your way along this northern expanse. A large swathe of young alder can be found under the northern power line, breaking up the conifer.
The woodland is buzzing with life, and the sounds of ground nesting birds, tree-top dwelling buzzards, and an array of small robins and tits can be heard around the entire woodland. Ground nesting birds have made their nests in the long grasses and nestled in the banks of the steep ravines. Buzzards can be seen circling above.
The western side of the woodland is a wetland environment with many small inhabitants to search for. The many streams and watercourses culminate in the north-west corner and would make a perfect location for a pond.
If you make your way south from the conifer you will find a large amount of mixed broadleaf, dominated by hazel. There are recently created clearings along the length that make for easy access to the young coppice stools, making management and access to this section of the woodland much easier.
Coed Wern used to form part of the ‘Plas’ Estate, which centred around a large mansion house in Llansteffan, a picturesque coastal village a couple of miles away. Llansteffan is a popular tourist destination and has a post office, pub, shop and historic castle. Llanybri is only a short distance from the woodland, and has a very nice village pub. Both Carmarthen and St Clears are easily accessible via the A40, and the M4 is easy to reach from here.
