Coed Cefn

Overview

This is a small charming broadleaf woodland just East of the village of Crickhowell, Powys. It is a very well kept wood with a circular path as well as paths and trails cutting through the wood.

For a couple of weeks in May the wood is tranformed into an infusion of colour from Bluebells and the lime green leaves of the Birch and Beech trees. All this combined with the chorus of birdsong from the many resident and migrant species make it a very pleasant place to spend some time.
