First place is Tregib Woods. Cared for by Coed Cadw, this little gem is so tucked away you might miss it, on the left as you walk the seemingly dead end lane.
Sharing 2nd place is Stradey Woods. Although private, if you pass the entrance, take the next left & on your right there is a public footpath through woodland.
Sharing the number one spot is Dinefwr Country Park owned by the National Trust with its breath taking trees & sweeping views.
Also in 2nd place is Pembrey Country Park, best known for its beautiful beach, Pembrey is also home also to towering woodlands. Check for entrance fees.
Also in 2nd place is Sandy Water Park - again best known for its location near to the coastal path & the lakes, but there is a less known small woodland.
In 3rd place, Brechfa Forest, nominated entrance being Abergorlech, a beautiful welcome of sculpture & nature to entice you in.
Sharing 4th & joining Talley is Green Castle woods, very close to the busy road but once you walk up the hill, the traffic noise fades into the natural world.
Also in 2nd place Troserch, a mature woods, with tree canopies & walk ways, tucked away from the traffic, lovely for birdsong.
Sharing 4th place is Talley Woods, part owned by the community, as soon as you enter the village there is a sense of nurture & well being.
Last, but by no means least, in joint 4th place, Swiss Valley reservoir, absolutely stunning view across the water & a well cared for walk with benches.
