Glan Teifi Wood is situated overlooking the delightful River Teifi on the northern border of Pembrokeshire in South Wales. It is serviced by a well maintained, infrequently used, minor road off the A484 and only a short drive from Cardigan.
Part of the woodland was felled approximately 10 years ago and has been replanted with a broadleaf mixture dominated by oak and wild cherry. In between the planted trees, there is an abundance of self-seeded silver birch, as well as some blackthorn shrubs growing throughout. On the borders of the woodland, there is a mix of mature ash and sycamore trees and the occasional oak and beech.
To the south, the woodland changes from young planted trees to more mature species that spread across one side of a small valley. A meandering stream forms the southern boundary. Oak and ash dominate this area with a mixture of hazel, holly and hawthorn growing up sporadically underneath. The ground layer is made up of a mixture of ferns including hart’s tongue and soft shield, a variety of mosses and creeping ivy, and where there are gaps in the trees, bramble and ferns vie for the light.
Glan Teifi Wood is generally on a slight slope, but has a few steeper sections towards the boundary, with an easterly aspect that catches the morning sun (giving you a spectacular view of the River Teifi!). The woodland lies on freely draining loamy soils, perfect for growing deciduous trees.
If It Were Mine
I would clear some of the trees near the turning area to make a lovely viewpoint and install a wooden bench, looking out over the meandering River Teifi. I would also cut a footpath through the young trees down towards the southern edges and up through the valley, creating a lovely trail to allow the kids to enjoy the woodland, build their dens and generally get muddy in the wild.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
