Although of  modest size Roseawen Wood has all the features you might expect to find in a larger woodland, including open ground, glades and running water.

The wood is in two halves separated by an old boundary bank which runs in a north - south direction. Entrance into the wood is via a gateway at the point where this boundary bank meets the main, hard-surfaced, access track.

The western half of Roseawen Wood is mainly oaks and includes a little glade which in springtime is studded with bluebells and primroses. This wooded area is gently sloping although the glade is on level ground. A stream runs along the northern and western boundaries.

Continue through the entrance way and to the right of the boundary bank and you enter an area of meadow which first slopes down towards the stream along its northern boundary but then levels out as you go east. In combination with the wooded area, this area of grassland could provide opportunities for those wishing to explore small-scale agro-forestry or permaculture.
