SOLD: Dôl Morydau £85,000 Freehold


Dôl Morydau is flanked by woodland on one side, and meadow on the other and looks out directly over the Twyi Afon, a tidal river with an ever-changing aspect of mud flats, sand banks and rivulets depending on the height of the tide.

Dôl Morydau's entrance is via a gated parking area which is accessed directly off the B4312. This parking area is shared with neighbouring woodland owners and there is ample space for about 3 to 4 vehicles.

The meadow is fenced off from the parking area and a gate gives access to the western end, mainly level here sloping gently up to its southwestern boundary where it meets woodland, and climbing gradually in a northerly direction for a distance before the land opens up westwards, climbing more steeply up to its highest point along the western boundary. There are magnificent views out over the estuary from here, and it's a place you can take in the changing light and atmosphere of the riverscape and the surrounding countryside.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.


There is opportunity for new woodland creation here, or alternatively some form of agroforestry or forest garden.


The tidal river attracts a huge quantity of birdlife including the Little Ringed Plover, and Little Egrets amongst many other species can be heard and seen feeding on the mudflats when the tide is out.


Lovely far reaching river views and the potential to create a new woodland here or to make this land more productive following an agroforestry model.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access is directly off the minor public road the B4312 which links to Carmarthen and the A40/M4 ensuring easy vehicle access all year round.

The Wales Coastal Path runs just west of Dôl Morydau and could be picked up in Llansteffan, under a mile away. There is also a public footpath which can be accessed from across the road, directly opposite the main entrance to the woodland, that runs along the banks of the Twyi until it reaches the beach of Llansteffan, and connects with the Coastal Path.

Rights and covenants

There is a small BT mast half way along the western boundary to which BT require occasional access for routine checks and maintenance.


A great spot for family camping, with its proximity to the coast and the many coastal pursuits on offer including boating, fishing, foraging and the great beaches of the Carmarthenshire coast. The currents of the River Twyi are treacherous and advice should be taken before swimming if you are not familiar with the river. The beaches at Tenby and Saundersfoot to the west and Pembrey to the east offer good swimming.

The close access to the Wales Coastal Path opens up endless possibilities for walking as well.

Local area and history

The Towy Boat Club is half a mile down the road for anyone who wished to canoe or fish for the famous sewin (sea trout). For walkers, there is access to a public footpath just across the road opposite the main entrance to the woodland, which leads directly down to the banks of the Twyi.

The Twyi is one of three estuary rivers, along with the Taf and the Gwendraeth which jointly flow into Carmarthen Bay.

From there you can walk along the river to the lovely village of Llansteffan which has the ultimate castle perched on its headland, a great beach, fish and chips and a seaside cafe as well as pubs, post office, shop and B&Bs.

Carmarthen is only 15 minutes away with all amenities and transport links.

Please note that the adjoining meadow, Dol Twyi, is also for sale.
