Dolrhyd Wood sits on the south side of a valley alongside the river Banwy. Set in a rural location with a fantastic aspect this wood will be attractive to anglers and woodland folk alike. Diverse and densely populated with oak, sycamore, cherry, ash and with hazel in abundance, this wood is a delightful prospect for silviculturists. Such a wide selection of tree species in an undisturbed location brings with it a profusion of flora and fauna. Bluebells delight the eyes in spring, followed by the scent of honeysuckle on a summer morning, and as autumn lingers, the myriad of leaf colour is an indicator of the cooler months.
Entering the wood from the quiet side road there is a layby at one end and a gateway at the other, providing good options for vehicular access. Slightly elevated in its position, you will descend slowly along either the trodden path or an old tractor track. Along the river there is an established path providing good access points to the water from the bank. There is a beautiful section of pebble shoreline allowing the angler to wade out to different sections of the water. This area could also be used as a portage point of access, or is perfect for stone-skimming and a great place to watch the wildlife on the river.
Dolrhyd Wood is in a quiet setting amongst grazed pasture land, the only disturbance is the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway steam train that infrequently passes on the opposite side of the river.
Woodlands such as this are rare to the marketplace – Dolrhyd Wood is easy to get to with good regional A roads, and with fishing on the river, mature broadleaves and remote location, we don’t think it will be on our website for long.
If It Were Mine
Not a wood to exploit but to delight in, one could just enjoy as it is. However a deck over the river bank would be a wonderful place to enjoy some brunch whilst dropping a line in the water.
Treewise, I’d look at felling a few disadvantaged trees, thus allowing saplings to emerge. I’d create a few deadwood piles and possibly a small area to season firewood.
Oh… and a swing over the river is a must!
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
