Coed Y Moch - Pig Wood, Carmarthenshire - Over 5 acres , £29,000

Coed Y Moch - Pig Wood

Coed Y Moch is located close to the village of Trelech in Carmarthenshire. Most of it was planted in 1993 and consists mainly of ash and Japanese larch with a distinct split: the upper half of the woodland being larch and the lower half ash. The trees could be thinned and coppicing of the ash would be possible. There are multiple old access points to the woodland which would be very useful for forestry work.

The woodland was planted on former agricultural land, which means the ash is interspersed with grassland, attracting numerous butterfly species. The wood slopes downwards from southeast to northwest towards a track and is bordered by a small river, woodland and fields. Buzzards can be seen circling over the valley and the surrounding farmland.

South of the track, the woodland gently slopes down and adjoins a river. Here you will find a mixture of young deciduous trees, mainly oak, ash and beech, and good flat access to the river. The river, the Afon Cynin, is fairly shallow with a sand/pebble riverbed. Much of the area by the river is boggy wetland providing habitat for amphibians and water voles (which have also been seen in the surrounding area). There are also dry flat areas which would be perfect for a camping or fishing area.

Access to the woodland is via a locked gated entrance with good car access (woodland owners are provided with keys but if you are viewing you will have to leave your car in the parking area at the locked gate). Inside the gate the track is accessible by ordinary cars as far as a car parking area that has been created about half way down the woodland track. There is room here for 3-4 cars. Beyond this point it is only sensible to drive with 4-wheel drive vehicles. Once inside Coed y Moch, there is a large hardstanding parking area towards the far end of the wood.

Coed Y Moch makes up part of a larger woodland known as Allt Ffynnon Wen. Parts of Allt Ffynnon Wen are classified as Ancient Woodland, containing oak, silver birch, and hazel. The track through the woodland was previously a well trodden route used by miners to access local mines. You can still see the relics of an old pub built to cater for miners on their way home. Trelech is a quiet rural village located less than 2 miles away and has public transport links. Trelech is located about 12 miles northwest of Carmarthen - the oldest town in Wales. It is also 9 miles from Newcastle Emlyn, a historic market town.

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.
