Coed Y Haearn - Iron Wood, Pembrokeshire - 10½ acres, £55,000

Coed Y Haearn - Iron Wood

Coed y Haearn or Iron Wood is named for the Iron Age settlement, Castell Henllys, found just yards away to the east. At Castell Henllys, the 2000 year old foundations of four roundhouses and a granary uncovered during the excavation of the site over twenty years ago, have been built on and the roundhouses recreated exactly as they were. The Demetae, the Celtic tribe who populated this part of Wales in the Iron Age, settled and farmed the local area although judging from the piles of stone slingshots found at the defensive barricades of the hill fort, they had to partake in a bit of warring as well….perhaps on the very slopes of Coed y Haearn…

However its all wonderfully quiet and peaceful now, apart from the chorus of birdsong that rings in your ears as you stroll up through the woodland.

From the entrance gate which is located directly off the minor road at the eastern end of the southern boundary, a well made stone track takes you up through the woodland to the north-easternmost part of the wood.About three quarters of the way up, the track has been widened to create a large and fairly level area suitable for picnicking, camp fires, working or stacking wood or perhaps even camping. Continuing in a north easterly direction from the back of the levelled area, the vegetation becomes thicker and more scrubby and a small spring can be found running here. A path has been cut through the scrubby growth to follow the line of the boundary along an old fence line. From here, there are wonderful views out above the treetops to the Preseli Hills of the famed bluestones, in the near distance and the surrounding countryside.

Above the track in the eastern half of the woodland, the tree growth is well spaced. There is a large proportion of sycamore here which appears to have been worked as coppice at some point. Between the trees the forest floor is thickly carpeted with fern. With a bit of a scramble you can make your way up the slope to the northern fenced boundary line, dotted with some mature ash and oak, to be rewarded with pretty views out over the adjoining fields.

The western part of the wood sees a lot of atmospheric gnarly oak with more fern underfoot.

Nearby Newport, a very pretty seaside town, is only ten minutes away, with good pubs and restaurants to choose from as well as shops for stocking up on provisions, and wonderful beaches and surfing can be found up and down the coast here.

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.
