FANCY owning your own eco cabin within the heart of an ancient Welsh woodland? Well, now you can as a plot in Snowdonia National Park launches to the market. 

Coed Hen Doeth, near the village of Llanberis, is available for £165,000 and boasts a mixture of mature European and Japanese larch and its own self-sufficient workshop at the heart of it. 

With solar panels and a hydro-electric generator, which is powered year-round by the stream running through the woodland, the shelter and wider plot are located on the lower slopes of the world-renowned Mount Snowdon.

Oliver Thompson, forestry sales agent for seller John Clegg & Co, said: “With demand outstripping supply for small mixed woodlands, Coed Hen Doeth offers a rare opportunity to own a secluded ancient woodland with an onsite workshop on the lower slopes of the world-renowned Mount Snowdon. 

“We expect to see interest from buyers who are looking for a change of lifestyle or to make a longer-term green investment.”

Coed Hen Doeth is a privately owned plot within Coed Victoria. It is located on the edge of Llanberis, known as the leisure capital of North Wales, with numerous activities and attractions just a short drive away in the heart of the national park.

Aside from the tranquillity and location, the main feature of Coed Hen Doeth is the workshop/day shelter.

As well as a workbench, the cabin has a log-burning stove and an open working area. A “living roof” adds character to the cabin and allows it to blend into the landscape with minimal impact.

The site also has a well-constructed stone track from the public road, which allows access to vehicles and has parking for several cars. It will also support timber extraction by heavy plant.

The woodland itself is a mixture of mature European and Japanese larch and Sessile oak on the upper slopes.

This area of oak is designated as Ancient Semi Natural Woodland (ASNW) and is protected under a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).

The small area of larch has an agreed felling licence that will allow any new owner to restructure the woodland and restore it back to native broadleaves.

The sporting rights are owned and included in the sale.
