About the reserve

Majestic sessile oaks have nurtured this quiet corner of Wales for over 400 years providing leafy cover for plants and animals and creating a 'wild wood' – the likes of which once covered large areas of the country. Although only 3.2ha in size, the reserve is part of Pendugwm Woods Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), designated in recognition of the special trees, plants and animals that live here, including the elusive dormouse.

It is hard to beat a broadleaved woodland in Spring, with the colourful, abundant woodland flowers and melodious bird song filling the air. Coed Pendugwm is a great place to watch Pied Flycatchers, as they busy themselves raising the next generation, above a carpet of bluebells.
