SOLD: Dôl Twyi £79,000 Freehold


Dôl Twyi is a lovely meadow sloping up from its entrance on its north western side to its highest level in the western half of the land. From up here, the views out across the Twyi Estuary are wonderful, across the changing mudflats, and it's a great spot to take in these views and watch and listen to the copious birdlife which throngs the river and its edges.

The meadow is newly fenced on north and south sides, and is bordered by a the B4312 on its eastern boundary but is separated from the road by a hedgerow. The western boundary adjoins private woodland.

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, or just grazing.

There are a number of very small oak saplings that would benefit from some nurture!


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 tides out.


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

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access is via a small lane 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, the adjacent meadow, and could be picked up in Llansteffan, under a mile away. There is also a public footpath which can be accessed from the east side of the B4312, opposite the entrance to Dôl Morydau. It runs along the banks of the Twyi until it reaches the beach of Llansteffan where it connects with the Coastal Path.


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 fabulous 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 sail, 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 Morydau, is also for sale.
