Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A character SMALLHOLDING with just under 34 ACRES of pastureland and woodland (approx 50/50) set in a beautiful rural position within a 10 minute drive to Newcastle Emlyn town. This holding is set in a very private location and has two stone outbuildings ripe for conversion (subject to any consents required), one of which we are advised by the owner may have been a house in the past, a polytunnel and a 20 ft newish container included.

The track access is very good and far reaching views are to be had over the lovely Welsh countryside. A large timber outbuilding (previously a poultry unit) has partially collapsed but would provide a huge source of free wood.

The Farmhouse has a lounge with feature inglenook, a sitting room, kitchen, downstairs bathroom and a study / bedroom 3, on the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms. The house needs updating and redecoration as can be seen from the photographs but this smallholding has masses of future potential both in terms of extending and converting the outbuildings (subject to any consents).


Managers Notes.

As can be seen from the pictures the house is now quite cluttered with various household items so bear in mind when viewing that you're not buying the clutter but a 34 acre privately situated smallholding with outbuildings, character features, superb views, conversion potential on the outbuildings and is ripe for a new energetic owner to come along and lift the holding to the next level.

The Land

There is just under 34 acres of land all in which is a mixture of approx 50% pastureland and 50% woodland, the woodland generally slopes down towards the stream as can be seen from the enclosed land plan.

The pastureland is generally flat to gently sloping and the whole smallholding is split into 8 enclosures.


We are advised by the current owner that the larger of the two stone outbuildings onsite may have previously been another house in the past so this could have a positive outcome in terms of any future consents for conversion.

The second smaller stone unit is currently used as a tractor/ implement shed.

There is also a fairly new 20ft container onsite, currently used as a workshop, as well as a partially ruined timber former poultry unit which of course would provide substantial amounts of structural timber and/or firewood.
