Derwen Fawr Wood is an attractive southwest facing woodland with an apt name, (the English translation is Large Oak Wood) with a number of impressive oaks growing throughout. Situated in a peaceful vale on the southern outskirts of Swansea City, with fantastic views of the Clyne Valley Country Park to the west. It is only a few hundred metres from Swansea Bay, home to many stunning beaches. The Gower Peninsula is 40 minutes’ drive and Rotherslade Bay, popular with surfers, is just 15 minutes by car.
A quiet residential lane runs along the southern edge where notable mature oak, beech and sycamore stand over holly and hazel. To the west the property opens out to a characteristic wet-woodland habitat of predominantly willow and birch. This makes a fantastic habitat for birds and other wildlife - we saw a heron on our visit and kingfishers are known to frequent the area. Several informal paths traverse the wood, allowing easy access on foot. With the correct permissions these could potentially be improved and upgraded. A superbly located woodland such as this offers a diverse range of possibilities and opportunities.
If It Were Mine
Apart from its great location, this woodland would appeal to those interested in conservation or sourcing sustainable woodfuel. Some light clearing of any encroaching laurel would be a good starting point.
