View a short video of the wood


Coed Nant Canu is a sheltered wood in the valley of the Afon Morgenau, a tributary of the River Teifi.  The source of the Afon Morgenau is a short distance from the wood. The river runs along part of the boundary, and then through the middle of the wood.  Another branch of the river forms the eastern boundary of the wood.  Coed Nant Canu is mainly Douglas Fir with some mixed broadleaves, particularly along the river and along the southern edge of the woodland, where there are some particularly impressive beech trees. The remnants of quarry workings add some interesting landscape features. 

Parts of the wood, near the river, are wetland areas, and a number of small, seasonal streams cross the wood, but most of the wood is dry. In the spring, parts of the wood are carpeted with bluebells, with patches of wild garlic (ramsons). 

Access: Coed Nant Canu is accessed over a right of way from the road, through a gate, and then along the track that forms the northern boundary of the wood.

There are two tracks that run into the wood from the main access track.  A four wheel drive vehicle is recommended for access to Coed Nant Canu in all except the driest weather.

Public access: The main access track is a public footpath, and there is one public footpath that crosses through the middle of the wood itself.

Sporting rights: Sporting rights over part of Coed Nant Canu are retained by a former owner, but appear not to be exercised.

Mineral rights: Included, except as reserved by statute.

Local area and history:  Coed Nant Canu is less than 2 miles from Cilgerran Castle, 5 miles from Cardigan, and 7 miles from Poppit Sands Beach.

Boundaries:  The northern boundary is the main access track.  Apart from a section where the river is the boundary, most of the southern boundary is fenced from adjoining farmland. The eastern boundary is the river.  The short western boundary is an earth bank: it starts just next to the For Sale board, and a line of wooden stakes, topped with yellow paint, just to the side of the earth bank mark the boundary. The boundary is most easily found starting from the main track.

Covenant: in common with the neighbouring woodlands, there is a covenant designed to ensure that all can have quiet and peaceful enjoyment of their woodland.

Photographs: were taken in May 2021.

Adjoining woodland available: Note that the woodland to the west of Coed Nant Canu (Coed Caerderwen) is also available.

Please take care when viewing as the great outdoors can contain unexpected hazards and woodlands are no exception.
