Nether Wood is a beautiful woodland of primarily mature oak, though here and there throughout there are other species such as rowan, the European ash, sycamore and the occasional mature willow tree growing along the edges. The oak are of a nice quality and are quite well spaced which is indicative of the good management that has taken place and there are some great trees growing here.
The woodland is situated on a north westerly slope and has excellent views through the canopy across the valley to the farmland opposite. Underfoot as you walk through the woodland is a variety of flora, such as the greater stitchwort, bluebells, enchanter’s nightshade, yellow archangel, bugleweed, a variety of ferns, bramble and an array of wild grasses.
Access is along a hard-stoned track, with an area to park your car in the neighbouring wood. Once in Nether Wood there is an old forestry track that has grown wild over the past few years, but a little clearance work could dramatically improve it and about halfway down, there is a clearing that is flat enough for a small tent.
The western boundary of the woodland is the middle of a small stream that runs down a deep and impressive gulley. On the opposite side of the gulley in the adjacent woodland is a number of tall and commanding Douglas fir, and when you look at them in conjunction with the oak in Nether Wood, this presents a very striking scene. One could quite conceivably imagine owls and buzzards gliding silently among the treetops searching for rodents scampering along the woodland floor.
All in all, Nether Wood is a stunning example of a quality oak woodland in mid Wales, and can be utilised in so many ways, an attractive offering at a very good price.
If It Were Mine
I would certainly do as suggested in the description, clear the vegetation and small saplings that are growing on the old forestry track and create enough space to pitch a tent. I might also fell an oak or two to create a nice seating area and an opening of the canopy to create a viewpoint from the camping area would be the icing on the cake.
Please remember some management operations require approval and/or a licence.
