Woodlands For Sale South Wales
Glynadda Wood, Alltwalis, Carmarthenshire 9.6 acres of well established mid-rotation woodland. Freehold as a whole for £53,000, or as two lots - 5.3 acres (approx.) for £32,000 (lot 1) and 4.3 acres (approx.) for £24,000 (lot 2). [#329].
A discrete accessible and private woodland combining commercial and amenity elements, surrounded by farmland in the rolling hills of South Wales.
Glynadda nestles near the base of a shallow valley on moderate north-facing slopes. For the most part it is surrounded by farmland and consequently has a strong sense of ‘being its own place’.
This well-established wood was planted 25 years ago, and the trees are growing strongly in the moist fertile soils. Both lots have substantial elements of Douglas fir. In lot 1 (east) this is complemented by alder on the lower northern section, whilst in lot 2 (west) there is an attractive belt of larch in the upper southern spur. The wood also harbours elements of cherry and sweet chestnut, and much of the perimeter is attractively fringed by mature broad-canopy hardwoods such as ash, oak and beech.
Glynadda combines a high degree of privacy with easy access. The wood lies 200m from the public road and is accessed across a field by a level grass track which is suitable for cars unless wet. There is a right to upgrade this track. This links with a well-found internal hard-track that runs to the heart of the woodland, terminating at a small clean-flowing stream which bisects the wood and which also defines the boundary between lots 1 and 2 (DE).
The trees across the entire wood are on the verge of production. Good internal access and moderate slopes facilitate easy management and an early thinning operation would produce commercial volumes of timber as well as enhancing the remaining crops. A by-product would also be enhanced amenity and increased light on the forest floor. The current owner has started this process to visible effect.
Lot 1 (5.3 acres) is homogeneous in shape and benefits from a stream-fed pond and a small cabin close by (in need of some upgrading). Together they form a focal point for woodland recreation and wild camping. The removal of a few trees between pond and cabin would create a delightful glade and further enhance amenity. The wider crops of Douglas fir and alder also offer the prospect of timber income and a healthy supply of wood for camp fires.
Lot 2 (4.3 acres) offers a lot of wood for the money with an attractive avenue of cherry on the access track, a belt of Douglas fir on the mid-slopes, a finger of larch reaching up a small gulley to the south and some notable beech trees between wood and field. Inspection soon reveals possibilities both for small-scale commercial management and recreation.
Glynadda is only being sold because the owner has acquired another wood closer to his home. If you want a compact discrete wood in unspoilt countryside, combining high amenity with the chance to manage and produce commercial timber, then look no further.
Lot 2 (west) will only be sold in isolation if lot 1 (east) has already been sold.
