Kilvrough Manor Woods comprises two areas of woodland, on either side of the A4118¸ south Gower road in the Parkmill Valley. The woods are mostly ancient semi-natural and broadleaved, made up of a canopy of Ash, Oak, Beech, and Elm, with a Beech plantation making up a large part of the southern woodland. There is also a small amount of Larch planted in some areas with an understorey of Hazel, with Bramble, Bluebells, Herb Paris, Wild Garlic, Twayblade, and Hart’s Tongue Fern in abundance.

Redden Hill was originally a planted ancient woodland, with a conifer plantation when the Trust first acquired it. The conifers have been cleared and mixed deciduous woodland dominated by Ash has been allowed to regenerate naturally.

The woodlands provide suitable nesting habitat for a range of woodland birds such as Chiffchaff, Robin, Great Tit, Treecreeper, and Willow Warbler with other species such as Buzzard, Great Spotted Woodpecker, and Woodcock regularly seen in winter.
