Situated close to Llanmadoc in north Gower, Cwm Ivy is an ancient broadleaved woodland and plantation. A small limestone quarry lies close to the marsh edge on the eastern side of the woodland, supporting lime-loving plants such as Milkwort and Wild Thyme.
The majority of the wood is made up of Ash, with some Oak, Sycamore and planted beech. In spring, Bluebells, Dog's Mercury and Early Purple Orchid are plentiful, with Wood Avens making an appearance in late summer.
The western section of Cwm Ivy Woods was bequeathed by the wealthy Betty Church in 1983, where native deciduous trees such as Ash, Field Maple and Hazel were planted to extend Cwm Ivy Wood.
