Brechfa Forest Carmarthenshire Wales

If you like unspoilt forest landscapes, this is the place for you. Originally planted with conifers, progressively the forest is being replanted with native mixed woodland trees. There is open access along forest roads for walkers, cyclists and horse-riders.

Brechfa Forest is the 18,000 acre wedge of ancient and managed forest in South Wales between the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park and the southern edge of the Cambrian Mountains.

Brechfa Forest is looked after by Forestry Commission Wales for the benefit of people, wildlife and timber production. There are walking and mountain bike trails for you to enjoy.

Waymarked walks and mountain bike trails are easily accessed at Abergorlech and Byrgwm where there are car parks and picnic facilities. There are also way marked walks at Keepers & Gwarallt car parks and 2 further car parks at Tower and Sifigwm.

A historic forest
Up to the early Middle Ages the areas north of the river Cothi were heavily wooded, forming the Forest of Glyncothi, vital to the defence and independence of the Welsh principality of Deheubarth.
Following the final defeat of Wales by Edward I in 1283, Glyncothi became a Royal Forest administered under the harsh Forest Law. Forest Law involved severe punishment for offences against both ‘venison’ and ‘vert’. The ‘vert’ included trees, coppices, the underwood and feeding ground of the game. Venison covered all the forest animals – in medieval Glyncothi these included red deer, fallow deer and roe deer, wild boars, wolf, fox, hare and marten. Forest Law was finally abolished in 1640, with most of the ancient oakwoods felled and cleared by the 17th century.
