Trawsgoed Estates Limited, incorporated in 2009, owns and manages the remaining elements of the Trawsgoed (Crosswood) Estate in Ceredigion, formerly Cardiganshire. This historic estate, the property of the Vaughan family, Earls of Lisburne, extended to 42,000-acres in 1890 and was at that time the second largest landed estate in Wales.
Today the company manages a diverse portfolio of assets, extending over 5,500-acres, including residential and agricultural holdings, as well as property in community use. Additionally, there are large areas of common land, as well as mineral and sporting rights and land suitable for renewable energy projects.
The property portfolio extends over a wide area of Mid-Ceredigion: from the Ystwyth valley, to Cors Caron in the foothills of the Cambrian Mountains, and across to the Tywi valley near Llyn Brianne. Much of the land area is registered Common Land including Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The company works closely with a number of bodies, including Natural Resources Wales, to protect habitats and conserve wildlife. The estate includes agricultural land on and adjoining Cors Caron National Nature Reserve, as well as Rhos Gelli-gron Common and other Common Land areas, where the company is working with the commoners to improve management practices to enable moorland regeneration.
