SOLD: Fort Wood £59,000 Freehold

Description

Fort wood is on the western side of a picturesque valley which leads down to the sandy Amroth bay. The woodland is on a bank, sloping up to the western boundary. It is a predominantly conifer woodland, with a smattering of broadleaves throughout. From the entrance you will find a brush cut path that leads you deep into the wood and up onto an old established path within the woodland. Fort Wood is classified as PAWS (Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site). An ideal management strategy could be to gradually remove the larch, and allow the wood to naturally regenerate its ancient woodland character.

Trees

Primarily a conifer woodland with mainly larch and some pine. Around the fringes of the wood are some broadleaves including a variety of oak, holly and sycamore.

Wildlife

Some of the wildlife seen and heard here include various songbirds and squirrels.

Features

Through the entrance you are greeted with a level clearing, where you will find a lovely little handmade bench. This could be a great area for camping and as a central base for conducting woodland activities. Leading from the entrance you will find a recently brush cut footpath which takes you across the woodland and eventually leads up to an old path that runs along the top of the woodland. This path enables you to take in a good view of the land and the tree coverage within the woodland.

Access, tracks and footpaths

A public bridleway leads from the seafront at Amroth, to the entrance to the wood, and continues up the hill to meet a road further up. The owner of the wood will have a vehicular right of way over the entire length of the bridleway.

The wood is located within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
