Coed Y Cnocell - Woodpecker Wood, Ceredigion - Over 5 acres, £35,000

Coed Y Cnocell - Woodpecker Wood
Coed Y Cnocell - Woodpecker Wood
Ceredigion

There is lovely variety of established broadleaf in this woodland, along with some interesting conifer, and open areas with natural regeneration along with some dramatic rock faces and stunning 360' views.

To get away from the grind, feel on top of the world and blow out the cobwebs - this would be the right wood for all of the above, and maybe also to catch a glimpse of the woodpeckers heard busying away here.

Set on the head of a ridge with stunning views out almost 360' you will certainly feel the weather up here, but shelter is also afforded in the lea of the hill, on its western slopes. Here, the rock seems to slide out of the ground in horizontal slices, creating footholds for mosses and ferns, and toeholds for determined hollies and wizened oaks. The whole of this western half of the woodland, populated by more oak, beech and birch interspersed with some conifer for good variety, is designated Ancient Semi Natural Woodland* by NRW (Natural Resources Wales). This designation continues partway around the headland of the wood at its northernmost point, until the ground flattens out on the eastern side of Coed y Cnocell, plateauing into a large open area, some of which is designated as PAWS (Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site). *This wood is not designated by NRW as one of the Natura 2000 sites, however.

Part of this open area was clearfelled within the last four years and has naturally regenerated with various grasses, young gorse and wildflowers including foxglove and wild geranium as well as good natural regeneration of Douglas fir, larch, beech and birch among other species. There is of course great scope to supplement this planting with additional native species (and there is a planting requirement from the felling licence).

Good vehicle access from the gated entrance off the minor public road leads up to a turning circle or parking area within Coed y Cnocell which is large enough to site a camper van or for forestry activities, and the track continues from the turning circle around the eastern side of the woodland, slightly rougher but still quite passable.

The nearest village is Talybont with two pubs to choose from The Black Lion Hotel and the White Lion. The buzzy town of Aberystwyth is only half an hour away to the south, and the lovely market town of Machynlleth half an hour away to the north, with all amenities on offer.

Also within easy reach is the wonderful Ceredigion coast line with much to explore!

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.
