Hafrena Wood occupies level and gently sloping terrain at the entrance to a larger woodland in the pastoral heart of rural Powys. It is surrounded by trees to the north and has lovely views to the south over pastures and woods towards 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.
Hafrena is one of those properties that belies its size, seeming considerably bigger than its two acres due to the variety of species, ages and aspects that it presents. The upper canopy is an intimate mix of Douglas fir, larch and Norway spruce mingled with red oak, ash and native oak. Along the drive-side there are thickets of younger stems and shrubs which also include birch, willow, hawthorn and hazel.
A well-found farm track connects the wood with the public road and a recently upgraded stone track runs along the north side of the property giving car access to a private parking layby within the wood.
This secluded corner is a haven for wildlife and supports a multitude of bird species along with the usual four-footed residents including badgers and foxes. The mature stems present some great prospects for the wood enthusiast and recreationist alike. Frankly this one’s got the lot!
If It Were Mine
I would cut a small circular footpath leading from the parking bay to meander through the various woodland types, perhaps connecting this to a small clearing somewhere on the south edge to create a secluded locus for recreation, with views out to the south. And there’s plenty of opportunity for the silviculturalist here with gentle thinning and re-spacing to produce millwood and firewood alike.
