The vast Ysbyty Estate lies just south of the picturesque village of Betws y Coed and is the largest single estate cared for by the National Trust. The estate covers over 8,000 hectares of high, wild open moorland, dramatic river valleys and 51 hill farms. It has very diverse landscape and habitats. The Migneint which is the large stretch of moorland and blanket bog on the south of the estate is all designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) on account of its plant communities and its bird life. The estate covers the main parts of three river valleys: the upper Conwy, the Eidda and parts of the Machno. The Eidda valley or as it’s known locally Cwm Eidda is hidden away between the upper Conwy and the Machno and is very picturesque. It is only accessible by single track road or, best of all, by a network of public footpaths.
Blaen Eidda Isaf is a 54-hectare upland farm on the Ysbyty Ifan Estate. By changing to more sustainable farming techniques, the tenant farmers have been able to encourage wildlife and grazing animals to coexist.
River management, tree planting and meadow making at Carrog Farm on the Ysbyty Ifan estate has led to flourishing wildlife populations and a more flood-resistant landscape.
The farming community at Ysbyty Ifan are working together to explore new, sustainable ways of farming that benefit people, landscape, wildlife habitats and biodiversity.
For safety reasons National Trust Cymru have removed the fisherman’s ladders at Rhiw Goch near Dolwyddelan, Conwy.
