VISITING CAMBRIAN WILDWOOD
We want as many people as possible to explore and enjoy all that Bwlch Corog has to offer, connecting with nature in this evolving landscape.
You are welcome to join us on volunteer work days or for organised activities on site. Alternatively, you can visit at your leisure – Bwlch Corog is free to roam. If you fancy staying a little longer, wild camping is permitted as long as the ‘leave no trace’ principle is followed.
The only times that we do not allow wild camping is when we are hosting groups on site – these dates are noted in red on the calendar.
If you have any questions about visiting, please contact us.
HOW TO FIND US
By road On A487 ( Machynlleth to Aberystwyth ) approximately 1 mile south of Machynlleth take minor road signposted Glaspwll (on your left). If travelling on A487 from the direction of Aberystwyth, approximately ½ mile north of Derwenlas, the minor road signposted Glaspwll will be on your right.
Continue to village of Glaspwll – approximately 2 miles from main road. As you reach the village, proceed right down a small hill – facing you will be Wainright’s Honey and Bee Breeding Project. From here Bwlch Corog is signposted.
By train Take the train to Dyfi Junction and walk to village of Glandyfi: follow A487 north for ½ mile and then proceed along un-signposted minor road that leads east along Cwm Llyfnant / Llyfnant Valley. Continue to village of Glaspwll, approximately 2½ miles from the main road. Alternatively, follow the bridleway that leads along Cwm Llyfnant / Llyfnant Valley on the north side of the river.
Alternative route: take the train to Machynlleth and proceed to Glaspwll by taxi or bus/on foot.
By bus The A487 road is well served by buses. Unfortunately none of them proceed to the village of Glaspwll. Bus stops are located in the villages of Derwenlas and Glandyfi. To continue on foot, follow the directions ‘By road’ above. Or use the bridleway along north side of Cwm Llyfnant / Llyfnant Valley.
After arriving at Glaspwll, turn left beside the West Wales Bee Breeding Project. Follow the track for one mile.
At the fork bear right.
Opposite the holiday cottages turn right.
Go through the gate and continue up the track to the top of the hill.
