Gallt Rhiw Onnen (Ash Hillside) - SOLD, Carmarthenshire - 8⅓ acres, £55,000

Gallt Rhiw Onnen (Ash Hillside) - SOLD
Gallt Rhiw Onnen (Ash Hillside) - SOLD
Carmarthenshire

Secluded and private, a haven for family camping or woodland conservation projects in a beautiful location.

After making your way through the long dark green tunnel of sitka plantation in the northern part of Allt Ffynnon Wen, you emerge into the light and leafy middle of the wood, surrounded by predominantly broadleaf planting and with the sound of the Afon Asen, which runs at the bottom of the valley, rushing in the background.

Gallt Rhiw Onnen is found a short distance down the track from the quarry parking area, only accessible to 4 wheel drive vehicles from the quarry onwards, and is made up of three distinct areas of planting. Surrounded by woodland on three sides and with views across fields to the north, this is a wonderful woodland for family forestry, set on a gentle slope and with the variety of tree species - or as a woodland restoration project to deal with the presence of Chalara Fraxinea in the ash in the woodland. It is a peaceful haven from the outside world surrounded by a variety of broadleaf, birdsong and wildlife.

Trees

Gallt Rhiw Onnen was planted in 1993/4 with Japanese larch, ash and beech.

The area of Japanese larch makes up approximately a third of the woodland and although the larch is adequately spaced, thinning will be of benefit to the remaining timber, increase light into the wood and provide great timber for any exciting building projects within the woodland.

The north eastern corner of Gallt Rhiw Onnen is planted with beech, resulting in a lovely area of typical beech woodland with no undergrowth, so easy to run through and play in, with a thick layer of crispy bronze leaves underfoot over winter.

The southern third of the woodland, planted in ash, provides a bittersweet opportunity to add to this woodland for future generations - it is very sad to see ash afflicted with ash die back, but as the woods caretaker, there is opportunity to renew and restore by taking out this timber, putting it to good use and then replanting with a sustainable mix of species, a wonderful legacy for future generations.

Wildlife

Hare have been spotted in neighbouring woodland, and birds of many species including woodpeckers, treecreepers, kites and buzzard circling overhead, thrive here as can be clearly heard!

At dusk, bats swoop and flit along the track ways through the woodland.

Features

Some areas of Allt Ffynnon Wen, including the southern fringe of Gallt Rhiw Onnen, are classified as Ancient Woodland meaning it has been continuously wooded for over 400 years. As we understand more about the makeup of soil and its connected microhabitats, the significance of an ancient woodland habitat becomes greater, revealing the existence of an incredibly complex and irreplaceable environment supporting a huge network of interconnected flora and fauna above and below ground, the benefits of which could be said to extend beyond its immediate 'boundaries'.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to the woodland from the quiet country road is via a stone track which crosses two fields before reaching the locked gate at the entrance to Allt Ffynnon Wen where there is a small parking area. There is a combination code to open the gate.

From the entrance gate, a good stoned access track runs through the larger woodland. This track is accessible to any 2 wheel drive vehicle as far as the quarry parking area in the middle of the woodland.

Beyond the quarry we recommend access only to 4 wheel drive vehicles and the small access track up into Gallt Rhiw Onnen itself is fairly steep.

There are no public footpaths through Allt Ffynnon Wen or through Gallt Rhiw Onnen.

Rights and covenants

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.

Local area and history

The track through Allt Ffynnon Wen 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, through the tree canopy down in the woodland below, beside the river.

Trelech is a quiet rural village located less than 2 miles away and has a small shop and 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.
