Pentre-bach Copse (or Coedlan in Welsh) is a small young woodland just outside the envelope of Llanaelhaearn, a village in the northeast corner of the Llyn Peninsula some six miles north of Pwllheli. Caernarfon is about 14 miles to the northeast.
The trees were planted on grazing land in January 2014 under the Glastir grant scheme. An incoming owner would need to maintain the trees in line with this contract.
With three growing seasons under its belt the former field is now very much a woodland. The planting is composed of a diverse mix of native broadleaves including birch, oak, rowan, aspen, wych elm and alder plus some woody shrubs at the fringes. The species choice is well suited to this site and thanks to a judicious weeding regime the trees have established well, with some now standing three metres tall. The developing habitat is also attracting an increasing variety of wildlife with wildflowers and soft grasses providing homes for insects and birds.
Pentre-bach lies on gently sloping ground with a south-westerly aspect. A slightly elevated position gives attractive views over the Llyn hills to the west and distant seas views to either side. On a clear day Holyhead Mountain is visible to the north, as are the islands off Abersoch to the south.
The wood is accessed directly off a quiet unclassified public road via a short grass track enabling cars with reasonable clearance to enter.
This pocket wood presents a real opportunity to acquire an affordable slice of rural charm.
If It Were Mine
The time has come to strim a path around the wood and to create a small clearing for camping and BBQs.
