Grubbers Wood is a broadleaved woodland classified as Ancient having been under continuous tree cover for over 400 years. The trees found here are prime Welsh oak around 30 to 50 years old and amongst these are birch, ash, rowan and holly. There are also grand spruce trees that line the track which leads further into the woodland beyond.
The wood occupies the sunny side of a valley with a gentle stream at the bottom that tumbles and cascades over the rocks. The flora is abundant with ferns and in spring just before leaf burst, parts of the woodland floor comes alive with bluebells and primroses.
Grubbers Wood is well stocked with trees and would welcome a light thinning to allow those favoured to develop further. This would be an ideal project for an enthusiastic woodsman and would provide a good supply of firewood for the family wood burner.
Access into the wood is along an upgraded hard surfaced track that opens onto a quarried area providing level parking and turning. This magical place is silent apart from the trickle of water and the call of woodland birds.
This is a truly remote woodland that offers the perfect getaway whether you are thinking of camping out for the night or just somewhere to get away from it all. This unique purchase opportunity will allow you to contribute towards the preservation of its status and own a small part of beautiful South Wales.
If It Were Mine
I would thin out a few trees and create a path leading from the parking up the bank and then to the stream. I would also consider building a shelter or a store to dry fire wood with the appropriate permissions.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
