Plas Gilfachwen is rumoured to date back to the twelfth century with the current house built in the early 19th century and closely influenced by the famous architect John Nash, famed for designing Buckingham Palace. In the book ‘The Buildings of Wales – Ceredigion & Carmarthenshire’ the property is described as “One of a group of early 18th century villas closely influenced by John Nash’s local works in the 1790s. Stucco hipped three-bay square house, built for the Rev. Thomas Lloyd, extended by a bay in 1980. The narrow tripartite ground-floor sashes in arched reveals with false fanlights are a motif from Nash’s Llanerchaeron.”
In more recent years, the current owners have converted a former traditional barn into a charming, one bedroom holiday cottage and there is perhaps potential to convert the equally attractive garage / workshop in the garden to a further cottage, subject to the necessary permissions.
The land has long frontage to the River Teifi although the fishing rights are owned by a close neighbour.
The property is pleasingly secluded yet not isolated and the south facing views over the Teifi Valley are glorious.
The property is within walking distance of Llandysul which offers a useful range of day to day shops and amenities including a secondary and primary school and leisure centre. Fuller ranges of shopping facilities can be found in nearby Carmarthen and Cardigan.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
