Gigrin Prysg

Gigrin Prysg is situated half-a-mile south of the busy market town of Rhayader, Powys. Many bird species frequent this lovely oak wood in a scenic region of mid Wales. Sightings include buzzard, sparrow hawk, cuckoo, tree creeper, lesser and greater spotted woodpecker and many others. The woodland has a sunny westerly aspect at the foot of Gwastedyn Hill. From the wood there are stunning far-reaching views across Rhayader and towards the nearby Elan Valley. There is a beautiful stream running through this woodland of predominantly sessile oak with occasional regeneration of holly, hazel, ash and rowan on the lower slopes and birch, sycamore, and ash on the upper slopes. The woodland flora community includes scaly male fern, hard shield fern, bilberry, heather and a rich diversity of mosses and lichens such as wood bristle-moss, rusty feather-moss, and old man’s beard lichen. Over the years, many such ancient woodlands have been lost to commercial activities. We are privileged to support this beautiful natural habitat for the further benefit of the local community and environment.

The property has been surveyed by Carter Jonas (founded in 1855), a leading UK estate management firm. The freehold purchase was facilitated by DWF, a leading global provider of integrated legal and business services. Please visit our disclosure section for their detailed reports.
