SOLD: Coed Telor (Warbler Wood) £35,000 Freehold

Description

It's quite a climb up to Coed Telor but you are rewarded with an idyllic little island of woodland encircled by the access track. The track brings you up to and along the southern side of the woodland. At the mid point along this southern side the entrance opens into a lovely level area sheltered by gnarly oaks and big beech trees and partially surrounded by raised earth banks which run around the perimeter, affording privacy, shelter and character to the woodland as well as great habitat for birds and other wildlife.

A fun woodland for family camping, small enough to be manageable.

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

Graced with some lovely mature oak, but also benefitting from really good variety of species here including some wonderful mature beech, rowan, birch and hazel resulting in a biodiverse woodland.

Myrtle, male fern amongst other varied species, vaccinium or bilberry and wildflowers including herb robert, honeysuckle, campion and yellow pimpernel are found at forest floor, to name just a few, as befits its status as Ancient Semi-Natural woodland.

Wildlife

A plethora of birds seen and heard here - the familiar robin, wren and blackbird; also chiff chaff and wood warbler with its distinctive call as well as the unmistakable knocking of the woodpecker.

Features

The woodland slopes fall away beyond the track on Coed Telor's northern side, allowing lovely views out through and over the tree canopy and giving the impression that you are nestled among the tree tops.

Access, tracks and footpaths

Access to the larger woodland Cwm Tawel is directly off the main road and the first sections of shared access track are accessible to any vehicle; however the last part of the track up to Coed Telor is extremely steep and only suitable for a four wheel drive vehicle.

There are no public footpaths through Coed Telor itself, but a footpath does run a short distance along the outside of it's south eastern boundary, through part of the neighbouring woodland Allt Foel-fawr and back down to the main entrance gate.

Activities

Lovely little wood to get away from it all, listen to the birds and watch the leaves changing colour through the seasons.

Local area and history

The reservoir in the valley bottom used to provide water for Carmarthen but has been decommissioned for several years now. Throughout Cwm Tawel small brick structures can be seen, chambers for accessing the network of channels built to carry spring water to the reservoir when it was supplying Carmarthen with water, under the management of the Carmarthen Corporation Water Works in the late 19th C.

Nearby is the Dan-y-Coed Halt, the end of the line of the 4 mile stretch of the Gwili Railway, one of the last few stretches of functioning steam railway in the U.K. The 8 mile round trip takes you through four stations along the picturesque railway line which runs along the Afon Gwili through steeply wooded hillsides.

Directions

From Carmarthen take the A484 north for approximately 5 miles towards Cynwyl Elfed.

After passing Carmarthen Demolition yard (known locally as Barretts) with railway sleepers on the left, look out for the Rock and Fountain Inn (a white building) on the left and a small waney-edge timber clad shed just beyond, with a Woodlands for Sale sign on it, and the entrance gate is immediately between the two on the left.

Turn in carefully and enter the code into the gate lock and wait for the gate to open automatically. It will also close again automatically. (Please contact local manager before your visit for the code).

After a short distance you will come to a locked gate. Please park here, without blocking the gate, and continue on foot.

Follow the track straight ahead and up the hill (passing a gate on the left hand side of the track-ignore this) until the track bends to the left and you come to a third (unlocked) gate with a woodland for sale sign on it. (On your right here, you will see a yellow public footpath marker indicating where the public footpath heads west, along the north bank of the Afon Nant Cwm-tawel.)

Continue through the gate and follow the MIDDLE track straight ahead, not the track to the right.

Continue along this track, up the fairly steep hill and just before the entrance to Cwm Adar directly ahead of you, take the track to your left and follow it up to the very top of the hill.

You will see the entrance to Coed Telor on your left, marked with a name board and a Woodlands for Sale sign.

PLEASE NOTE: The postcode SA33 6TP takes you about 0.9 miles further along the A484 so, if coming from the south, look out for the entrance before being told you have reached your destination.
