SOLD: Coed Spwdwr (Spwdwr Wood) £49,000 Freehold


Coed Spwdwr is named for Pont Spwdwr, an interesting stone bridge of late medieval construction, considered one of the oldest of its type in South Wales, which is to be found within walking distance of the wood. It was used as the main crossing point over the Afon Gwendraeth from the date of its construction in the late 15th century until a modern version, more suited to vehicle traffic was built a short distance to the east.

This is a great opportunity to purchase a good sized acreage of mixed woodland with a good presence of mature oak and Scots pine in a very accessible location, with links to transport, both road and rail.

The woodland is level throughout, and there is an interesting variety of vegetation. Part of Coed Spwdwr, towards the western half, is made up of an area of wetland, rare and valuable habitat these days, and which would make Coed Spwdwr an interesting conservation wood.

Towards the central area of the woodland there is an attractive stand of mature Scots pine, otherwise there is a significant number of mature oak standards throughout the rest of Coed Spwdwr. There are also mature specimens of alder and ash here.

The understory sees much holly and hazel, entwined with honeysuckle, stalwarts of British woodland and essential for providing good habitat for birds and wildlife.

Moving westwards the growth becomes denser, and what appears as overstood alder and hazel coppice, the ground becoming wetter here.

The north and south western boundaries and the south eastern boundaries are all fenced, on the western sides fronting onto the road, on the eastern sides adjoining the neighbouring garden.

A public footpath runs along the western boundary.

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.
