The Punchbowl is set in the sublime surroundings of Brecon Beacons National park, on the side of the Blorenge Mountain in Monmouthshire. It is one of the highest ancient semi-natural woods in Britain, offering stunning views and an interesting variety of wildlife.
The wood takes its name from the steep-walled man-made lake set dramatically into the mountainside. The wooded slopes are dominated by native broadleaf species and include beautifully gnarled pollarded beech trees - some of which are over 200 years old and up to 6ft in diameter.
A gift in a will is helping to give this unique wood the specialist care it requires, from looking after the pollarded beeches to planting new trees where needed.
