Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Approximately 128 ha (316 acres) of recently established broadleaf woodland located on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park on the western flanks of the valley of Cwm Pennant.

Located in what has been described as one of the most beautiful of all the mountain valleys in Wales, the place in which Welsh poet Eifion Wyn grew up. His poem 'Cwm Pennant' succinctly put it this way: ‘O Lord, why did you make Cwm Pennant so beautiful and the life of a shepherd so short?’
Approximately 128 Hectares (316.29 Acres) or thereabouts of recently established broadleaved woodland has been painstakingly nurtured across extensive and varied landscape located on the gentle slopes of Craig-y-Garn located on the western side of the valley, land ranging from between 90 and 240 metres in elevation above sea level. The majority of planting took place between 2000 and 2007 incorporating primary varieties of native sessile oak, ash and birch. There are also sections of more established mature woodland primarily along the boundaries. Two vehicular access points have also been created, suitable only for 4x4 vehicles, one of which provides a route to a spacious parking area adjacent to some old quarry workings.
Prior to the replanting, the land consisted of rough pasture with old field boundaries, sheepfolds and evidence of medieval agriculture. As mentioned, there is also extensive evidence of quarrying thought to date from the late 19th century.
Whilst the site provides the capacity as an environmental and timber asset, there is also superb potential for development as a recreational resource. The aforementioned access routes are also complemented by numerous public footpaths affording far-reaching views from the higher sections overlooking Cardigan Bay and the surrounding Snowdonia moutainscape.

Cwm Pennant is a truly wonderful unspoilt and secluded valley located in the north-eastern section of the Snowdonia National Park, once home to extensive slate quarries that were served by narrow gauge railway, having long since returned to peace and quiet. This spectacular cwm (valley) is a real hidden gem, surrounded by hills and mountains with the jagged Nantlle Ridge prominent at the head of the valley with Moel Hebog to the east, making this fine walking and climbing territory. From the main entrance, the main A487 lies roughly 1¼ miles distant with the nearest towns being: Porthmadog 5 miles; Pwllheli 13 miles; Caernarfon 16 miles; Chester & M56 motorway 68 miles (Approximate mileage).
