Nature Trail

The nature trail takes you through twenty two acres of old and important woodland, through many different habitats. With names like Cwm Rhew-erwyll (Valley of frosts) and Cnwc-y-Perfedd (The mound of guts) it is easy to imagine you have gone back in time to when Celtic tribes inhabited these wooded hills.

The walk passes through a wildflower meadow that is a haven for butterflies, while dragon and damsel flies are often to be seen along the stream (Afon Dulas) which is also home to brown trout.

You are more than likely to be accompanied on your travels by the mewing of the Buzzards that live here (Boncath is Welsh for Buzzard) and if you are lucky you might well see the Red kites that have returned to the area in the last few years. Other wild birds that have been recorded in the last season include Ravens, Herons, Moorhens, Mallard and Dippers, Tits of many sorts, as well as the tiny Goldcrest.

Mammals that have been spotted include Badgers, Foxes, Polecats and Weasels, Bats, Mice and Shrews, but we are still looking for our first Dormouse!

With many old trees, natural sculptures and fantastic views we feel you will enjoy a walk along this one of the most captivating trails in West Wales.
