We Say...

This cottage really is something special. From the moment you turn the corner and start your approach down the no through road to the property, the spectacular sea views take your breath away. Sitting within the Pembrokeshire National Park, and with far reaching views over the Cardigan Estuary, Poppit Sands and Gwbert, Cardigan Island and the sea beyond, this really is one property that appears to have it all!

The cottage itself is quaint and cosy and offers a beautiful living space where the views can be full appreciated at any time of year. The barns outside offer extra storage or, subject to necessary planning permissions and national park approval, offer ideal holiday let potential.

The property is surrounded with its own land with the majority of it being to the rear and offers a beautiful walk down to the coastal path. This really is one of them once in a lifetime opportunity that we would really love to own!

The Family Say...

This property has been in the family for over 50 years with the owner being brought up here and appreciating the surroundings and location. It became more of a holiday home once the owner moved away and is now fully appreciated by the family as and when they want that well needed rest.

It's with a heavy heart the property has now found its way onto the market and it is their hope that the new owners love and cherish it and have as much fun, joy and happiness there as they have had over the past five decades.

They say that the views are something they have never experienced anywhere else in the world and will miss dearly.

The land is currently rented out to sheep who would be happy to stay if the new owners wanted them!

Step Outside...

To access this property you follow the No Through road all the way to the end onto a private driveway. The private drive then passes a neighbouring property and on through the first field of this property, over a cattle grid leading you up to the front yard over another cattle grid. Within the yard you will find the barn range on the left hand side and the cottage on the right.

Beautiful gardens follow you round the property on the left hand side and goes around to the back, giving spaces for seating areas to relax and admire this incredible sea view. There are various plants, flowers and trees (including two monkey puzzle trees) planted in the garden. A green house and store shed (complete with W/C) to the far end of the garden offers space to grow vegetables or plants as needed.

The stone barns, consisting of; the former Cow Shed (42'10 x 14'), adjoining Store Shed (14'6 x 13'3 ), adjoining Carriage House (13'7 x 12'), Old Dairy (13'3 x 8'7 ) and an old Calf Cot Shed (13'10 x 8'2 ), are all of a good size and subject to the necessary planning permissions could be ideal holiday lets offering good income potential.

To the rear of the barns is the old former collecting yard which previously had a dutch barn on site but the area is now used for storage.

The land of about 52 acres or there about (6.7 acres of which is the cliff face), is well drained and runs from the front of the property, all the way behind the property and continues on down to the coastal path and to the sea below, ending in a small cove, where Seal pups can be seen in late autumn!

There is a footpath cutting across the front field which joins on to the coastal path and a bridle path runs to the other side and behind into the rear fields.

Walking across this land is a must when viewing this property as every acre has a sea view.

The property is only 1.7 miles away from the beautiful sandy beach of Poppit Sands and benefits from easy access to the coastal path for anyone who wanted to walk down to the beach.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path first opened in 1970 and was the first National Trail in Wales. The Trail hugs the coastline for 186 miles or 299km of some of the most breathtaking coastal scenery in Wales, it runs from St Dogmaels all the way round to Amroth and for anyone who fancied a real challenge and wanted to walk the whole trail in one go it would take around 10 to 15 days, it is quite an undertaking!
