Hermon, Carmarthen


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
A very privately situated 5 bedroom character SMALLHOLDING (located over 1 km from the highway down a very good track) with no immediate neighbours and set in around 12 acres of pastureland and also having two of the largest, most useful outbuildings you will find anywhere in addition to various other outbuildings. The property also has current (as of March 21) full planning consent to convert some attached outbuildings into holiday let accommodation.

In the Farmhouse there is a utility/boot room, shower room, kitchen/diner, large lounge and second sitting room, on the first floor there are 5 bedrooms(one ensuite) and a family bathroom (so 3 bathrooms in all).

The Land surrounds the holding and is split into 5 main paddock areas and is used for grazing. One of the large outbuildings has had 9 stables built along one side with open pen areas on the other (see pictures).

This is a classic SMALLHOLDING with far reaching views, lots of further potential with a superb collection of outbuildings that would cost serious money to erect today.

The Outbuildings - Ranges

Adjoining the house on one corner is a stone former cowshed approximately 46' 0'' x 18' 0'' (14.01m x 5.48m) with corrugated roof and adjoining 24' 0'' x 15' 0'' (7.31m x 4.57m) block former milking parlour building. These ranges currently have planning to convert into holiday accommodation.(see pictures)

There is also a very useful Dutch Barn subdivided into a very nice workshop area with the other two sections used as storage areas.

The Outbuildings - Modern Ranges

There are two large outbuildings, one used for general storage and as a tractor shed, the other (approx 22.84m x 13.71m) has been subdivided.

1. Stables

There are 9 stables in total. 5 stables with a tack room (with light and power) along one side and 4 stables with an open pen area along the other side.

The goats have the use of 2 of the stables with openings in the dividing walls allowing them to walk through but they can easily returned to full walls for equine use.

The goats in the pictures provide milk for making Goats Milk Soap (Google Sharons Goat Milk Soap) We ask you politely NOT to arrange viewings via this method of contact.

The Land

The land surrounds the house and is arranged in 5 main level enclosures and currently used for pasture, the lower paddocks are slightly wetter than the paddocks up towards the road. There is c.12 acres all in.

There are two wells on the property. These did provide water to the house and farm but the mains supply pipe was laid to the house about 12 years ago.

The water would need to be tested and could be used again as a back up supply or for livestock.

Right of Way

We note from the OS map that a footpath runs down the entrance track to the yard and joins up with a path crossing the land coming from a property due northwest and heading due east from the yard.The footpath is unused and very overgrown.

The first part of the access track to the property is owned by a third party which of course the owner of Maes y Pwll has access rights over, the last part of the track is owned by the property itself.

Note to Buyers

We wish to point out that 3 small 50kw Endurance E3120 Wind Turbines are located some 430m, 517m and 468m from this property. The rotor size of this turbine is around 19m in diameter and prospective buyers will pass 2 of them on the left hand side along the track when reaching this smallholding. The turbines are not owned by our client and are located on land not connected with this smallholding.


From Newcastle Emlyn take the B4333 for just over 5 miles, go past the turbines on the right and continue on. Pass two right turnings together towards Trelech & Tanglwst and go around a couple of bends, pass Mountain View garage on the left and start indicating right and the track to Maes Y Pwll is approx. 50 yards further along on the right hand side and denoted by our For Sale board. Follow the track for 3/4 of a mile and this property is at the end.
