Description: This beautiful woodland has a little of everything: broadleaf woodland, field, woodland clearings, bluebell covered slopes in the spring, and a fast flowing shallow river as its boundary.  Ty Nant woodland is a quiet and peaceful broadleaf woodland in the beautiful Cwm Pennant valley.    Although it is only 7 miles from Corwen, 10 miles from Bala, 17 miles from Llangollen, and 27 miles from Wrexham, it is in a very quiet valley, next to a country lane that terminates at the southern end of the valley.

The land is in three parts:

  • A level broadleaf woodland next to the Afon Ceidiog river, a tributary of the River Dee/Afon Dyfrdwy.
  • Just under an acre of field at the northern and western side of the land, gently sloping at the top, and flat next to the river
  • A wooded slope, steep in places, joining the other two parts.

The grassland areas offers some lovely camping areas, and would be great for either planting trees….an orchard maybe… or keeping as grassland.  The extensive river frontage (over 300 metres) features several pebbly beaches in the summer where you could picnic, or just sit and enjoy the sound of the river, as you watch the world go by.

Much of the woodland is designated as Ancient Semi-Natural woodland, meaning it has been continuously covered with woodland for at least the last 400 years.  Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland is an increasingly scarce habitat, and home to the widest diversity of both flora and fauna. 

The river forms the eastern boundary of the land, so as is normal practice, the woodland owner is deemed to own to the mid-point of the river.

Access: Ty Nant woodland is accessed via a gateway straight off a minor, and very quiet, country lane, into the gently sloping field at the western edge of the wood.  The field offers the easiest access from the gate to the woodland and the riverside camping areas. It is accessible with a four wheel drive in dry weather, but could be improved by constructing a track (subject to any required permissions) through the field down to the woodland alongside the river.

Boundaries: The eastern boundary of Ty Nant woodland is the Afon Ceidiog river along its whole length. The western boundary is the public highway, and is fenced.  The southern boundary is fenced. The northern boundary is indicated by two marker posts, but the current owner intends to fence this boundary before sale.

Sporting rights: Included

Mineral rights: Included, except as excluded by statute.

Public footpaths: There are no public footpaths or public access of any kind within the wood.

Wildlife: A variety of birdlife has been seen or heard while walking around this woodland, including, wren, dunnock, crow, coal tit, blue tit, barn swallow, bullfinch, jay, buzzard, spotted flycatcher, and solitary sandpiper.

Local area: The woodland is two miles south of Llandrillo, where there is a Post Office/village stores, the upmarket Tyddyn Lan restaurant and hotel, and The Berwyn restaurant. Corwen is just seven miles away with a larger range of facilities.

The wood is just outside the 20,000 acre Y Berwyn National Nature Reserve (NNR), which is accessible via public footpaths leading up from Llandrillo, or from footpaths in Pennant, just the other side of the river.  The road that passes the wood runs out about one mile to the south, where a footpath continues to Milltir Cerrig, a viewpoint and mountain pass on the edge of the Berwyn NNR.

Photographs: were taken in August 2023.   Short video of the wood and river

VIEWING: You are welcome to visit this wood by yourself, but please register your intention to view with the agents, by phone or email.  Please ensure that you have a copy of these sales details with you: we recommend either printing the details or downloading them to your phone/tablet/laptop before you go, as there is very little mobile phone signal at the wood. Please take care when viewing as the great outdoors can contain unexpected hazards and woodlands are no exception.
