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. Most of the woodland was planted between 2000 and 2007 with Sessile Oak, Ash and Birch (with some 13 ha of mature native woodland interspersed). The woodland was replanted to compensate for deforestation in the area, likely caused by medieval agricultural and smelting practices, evidence of which can be seen on the site, alongside the visible remnants of a 19th Century slate quarry. The woodland provides a valuable environmental and timber asset with enormous potential (subject to planning consents) as a recreational resource. The land is well fenced and two good vehicular access points (4X4 only), and an internal network of rough tracks. The sale will include the fishing and shooting rights.
