Situated a few miles from the market town of Newcastle Emlyn, Coed Lewes is level throughout and has a wonderfully thematic feel, with the woodland floor and branches dowsed in moss giving it a very vibrant look. The woodland could benefit from thinning in places to allow the better trees to flourish. As well as thinning it would also be beneficial to plant other species to enhance the diversity of the woodland.
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.
The woodland is almost entirely Sitka spruce. It is believed to have been planted around 40-50 years ago with the land previously being grass land. The traditional "ditch-mounding" technique was used when the planting was done, which helps the trees establish more quickly.
The woodland has a turning and parking area to enable you to pull in just off the track. Just inside the entrance is a handmade bench, to use either as you prepare to walk around the wood or to take a little breather on your return. As you enter the woodland you are greeted with very dense mossy conifer. Once you get towards the back of the woodland the trees are a lot less dense and the wood opens up, allowing you to see a clearer picture of the land.
Access, tracks and footpaths
There is a particularly good track leading to the woodland which is accessible by most cars all year round. There are no footpaths through the woodland.

Local area and history
Coed Lewes derives its name from the Lewes family, who owned the Llanayron estate (now known as Llanerchaeron), which was left to the National Trust by John Powell Ponsonby Lewes, who had a connection with this woodland.
The lovely town of Newcastle Emlyn is just over 4 miles away. There you will find the ruins of the town’s castle which was blown up with gunpowder in 1645 during the English civil war. The town also has several shops, pubs and eateries including the award-winning Indian restaurant Yasmins.
The oldest town in Wales, Carmarthen, is around 12 miles away. Here you’ll find several large supermarkets and all the usual amenities a large town offers.
These plans and particulars were prepared by George Patey.
The north-western boundary runs along the front of the woodland in line with track.
The eastern boundary is marked with a line of stakes and runs along a fence line.
The southern boundary is marked with a line of stakes.
The boundaries are further indicated by turquoise paint on fence posts, stakes and trees (as well as orange tape on trees on the southern boundary).
