Gifted to the townsfolk of Llanfair Caereinion in 1919, Deri Woods is a significant and popular asset to residents and visitors to the town, it has good pedestrian access from the town centre and its own small car park. Overlooking a picturesque section of the River Banwy, the 13-acre wood contains many large and impressive oak and beech trees as well as a number of towering conifers. The wood is criss-crossed by sloping gravel paths (some fairly steep) and rustic steps. There is step-free access from the car park to significant areas of the wood including the most impressive trees and some of the riverside paths.
To find Deri Woods head west out of Llanfair Caereinion on the B4385. Shortly after passing the Goat Hotel you will see a gate into the woods on your right. To get to the car park, continue on the B4385 for about half a mile. The car park is on your right just after you've left the town.
A Public Footpath runs through Deri Woods from the car park gate to the wood’s far-western end, where you can admire the River Banwy from the footpath bridge, which crosses the river at this point.
Public transport to Llanfair Caereinion includes the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway and Bus numbers 73, 84, 87 & 89.
