Coed Cymer is an amenity woodland with real appeal! A key aspect of its allure is the location within the Snowdonia National Park. Centrally located for many recreational activities, the mountain bike trails of Coed y Brenin, the beaches of Barmouth and Harlech and multiple walks and mountain hikes are all within easy reach. Coed Cymer encompasses a picturesque stretch of the banks of the Afon Mawddach, a popular fishing river for salmon and notably sea trout.
Coed Cymer lies opposite an old graveyard, near the ruins of the historic Cymer Abbey. The woodland is accessed via a quiet tarmacked track leading to an attractive stone bridge that crosses the Afon Mawddach.
Secure and private access to the woodland is via a metal gate situated on the northeast boundary. Along this boundary, part of which is walled, there are ash, rowan and holly trees fringed with wild rose, giving a delightful display during summer.
Inside the woodland, an internal track culminates at two useful storage sheds and concrete hardstanding.
The woodland’s species composition is predominantly willow, large mature beech and oak line the riverbanks. In parts, several groups of younger oak trees stand over an understorey of ferns, including several impressive broad bucklers.
This riparian woodland has a mix of insects, bat and bird species, offering great conservation value. This could be enhanced further by installing some bird and bat boxes, retaining deadwood and possibly opening the canopy through some light coppicing.
Running parallel to the western boundary is a manmade stream, probably constructed as drainage during road improvements completed some years ago. A nice idea perhaps, would be to install a rustic footbridge.
The surrounding scenery is truly fantastic, there are views of the nearby mountain Cadair Idris to the south and of the Rhinogs to the north.
If It Were Mine
I would consider starting a coppice rotation in an area of the willow. This would enhance the wildlife value whilst also providing a moderate source of usable woodfuel. Coed Cymer would make a great family holiday destination!
