Find Coppicewood at Pengelli

As our current lease expires in June 2022 we have been looking for an alternative woodland to operate in and we are delighted to announce that we will be taking up residence on a 25 year lease in Pengelli woods an SSSI woodland with a particular rare habitat for Dormice.

The Workshop is now finished and the compost loo will be complete before Christmas.

If you are attending a pre-course interview and have been asked to come to Pengelli here are the directions.

Turn right from the A487 (if travelling from Cardigan towards Fishguard) into a small unsigned lane which leads to towards Pont-gareg and eventually to Felindre Farchog. It is the turn after the one which goes down towards Moelgrove. Once on the lane just keep going straight, ignoring all turns off the lane, and the entrance to Pengelli Forest will be on the left as you drive down a steep hill. There is plenty of car parking at the entrance. Go through the kissing gate and proceed along the main track for 1/2 mile. The entrance to our compound is on the left through a gated entrance.
