SOLD: Coed y Neuadd (The Hall Wood) £39,000 Freehold

Description

As the site of a former conifer plantation part of this woodland has seen 8-10 years of natural regeneration. This former woodland requires some restocking of trees to revert the land back into a thriving woodland. There is an obligation to replant, therefore this opportunity would very much suit a new owner that would wish to plan, create, plant and manage their own woodland to their own design.

The woodland is on your left as you enter through the gate into Maes y Neuadd. There is space to park right next to the path that leads down to a large clearing which is wonderfully secluded and could be utilised as a base for woodland activities.

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.

Trees

There are a few mature conifers left in this woodland, particularly at the southern tip of the wood, by the road, and some more mature broadleaf trees roadside. Most of the woodland is a variety of naturally regenerated broadleaf trees, together with a few young conifers, but there are some quite sizeable areas where no trees have established themselves, and where planting will be needed.

Features

As you enter through the main entrance, the woodland will be on your left. At the entrance into Coed y Neuadd there is a stone path that leads down to a lovely secluded clearing, here you'll also find a handmade bench. A few meters down the stone path on the right hand side is a recently brush cut path which leads out to a dry stone wall which forms part of the northern boundary. The path leads over a break in the wall, and leads down to the western boundary; the path then leads all the way to the fence line next to the road at the southern end of the wood.

Access, tracks and footpaths

There is an excellent main track leading to Coed y Neuadd. Once at the woodland there is space to park a vehicle. The track into the woodland is suitable for most ordinary cars. There is a stone footpath that has been created to gain access into the woodland that leads to a large clearing.

Activities

This woodland provides a great opportunity to have a 'hands on' experience of managing a woodland with activities such as

- clearing some of the vegetation to allow and encourage natural regeneration.

- planting trees to further diversify the woodland.

- creating natural clearings and pathways around the wood, which would be beneficial to the local wildlife.

Directions

From the A487 Dolgellau to Porthmadog road, turn onto the A496 signposted Maentwrog and Harlech. Follow the A496 for just under 6 miles miles, and after Talsarnau, the road becomes the B4573 (do not take the right turn to stay on the A496). After a third of a mile, just before a bridge, turn left into a small lane and follow that for half a mile up the hill, through the village of Eisingrug and its village pond, and take the next right turn between a telegraph pole and a stone barn, marked as a no-through road. Follow that road up the hill for a third of a mile until you reach a metal gate with our woodlands for sale sign on it. Please park here (without blocking the gate).
