Description: Gwar Gors is a conifer woodland comprising of Spruce, interspersed with a good number of native Larch trees, especially in an area to the west of the track. There are also willows and occasional rowans, oaks and holly trees growing on the edges, with a line of beech trees marking the eastern boundary. It is flat and tranquil with views of the surrounding countryside.

Some parts of Gwar Gors are wetland, a rare and rapidly disappearing habitat which is home to a varied mix of flora and fauna. As well as a wide range of songbirds, Red Kites and Buzzards are a regular sight in the sky above. There are a vast array of different ferns, lichens and mosses covering the woodland floor, and several different types of fungi can be seen, including Yellow Stagshorn.

Lower branches have been cleared from the larch and spruce, and built into habitat piles, especially on the western side of the wood, making it very easy to walk around.  A number of simple log bridges have been built, provided access across the drainage ditches/streams.  There is also a small pond at the southern end of the wood.

A wooden shed in the south-western corner provides storage and shelter.

Gwar Gors is part of a larger, regenerating woodland, Mynydd Brith, surrounded by pasture.


Access: Gwar Gors is accessed via a solid, all-weather track which runs through the centre of the woodland.  The track is somewhat pot-holed, but usable with an ordinary car with care. There are three spaces within the wood to park and turn. The track through the middle is not included but this track is only used as a right of way for the owners of a woodland to the south called "Coed Esgairgors".

Boundaries: the eastern boundary is fenced from adjoining pasture, and is lined with beech trees.  Most of the western boundary is fenced from adjoining pasture, with the remainder being the small stream that runs through the wood. The northern and southern boundaries are the edge of the blocks of conifer, or the ditches close to the edge of the conifer.  The “Gwar Gors” name board is by the track, on the northern boundary.

Sporting rights: Included

Mineral rights: Included, except as excluded by statute.

Public footpaths: There are no public footpaths within the wood. There is a public access agreement with Ceredigion Council on the whole of the larger Mynydd Brith woodland, but this seems to be very little used or known about.

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

Local area: Gwar Gors lies West of the Cambrian mountains in an area of unspoilt countryside surrounded by heather topped moors and rolling hills. There is plenty of scope to explore and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding area.

The woodland is located close to the small village of Bronant, and only a few miles from the market town of Tregaron, with local amenities. The lively seaside town of Aberystwyth is within a 30 minute drive as well as Cardigan Bay (a Special Area of Conservation) a stretch of coastline protected due to its marine inhabitants, including bottlenose dolphins. The Llyn Eiddwen National Nature Reserves, and Cors Caron (the Red Bog) are within about five miles of Gwar Gors.

Photographs: were taken in November 2021.
