Garth Wood occupies gentle slopes on the southeast edge of a larger woodland in the pastoral heart of rural Powys. It is surrounded by trees on three sides and enjoys lovely views to the south and east over pastures and woods towards Afon Irfon and the Eppynt Hills. The market town of Builth Wells is four miles to the east and Llandovery is about ½ an hour to the southwest.
Garth Wood is dominated by an attractive stand of clean-growing red oak within which are scattered some native oaks, the occasional larch and a large Sentinel Douglas fir. Beneath this the woodland is lightly populated with regenerating saplings and hazel. Much of the woodland floor is uncluttered by entangling vegetation, making for easy pedestrian access.
The wood is served by a recently upgraded stoned track accessible to 2WD vehicles. This leads to a generous hard standing area for ‘in-wood’ parking. It is also a great place for picnics and a spot of timber processing too – clean red oak is an attractive milling species.
The peace and beauty of this place is evident from the photographs. You will however need to share it with a variety of avian residents including buzzards, wrens, bullfinches, owls, woodcock, tits and thrushes (to name but a few). Garth Wood is an archetypal amenity woodland – easy to manage, secluded, attractive, accessible and ideal for evening BBQs or a weekend campout.
If It Were Mine
I’d plan many visits to enjoy the wonderful amenity of this wood, especially in autumn to witness the seasonal colouration of the red oaks, and I’d put up a few more nesting boxes to enrich the bird life still more.
