Set in approx. 28 acres, an attractive 4 bedroom farmhouse with attached 2 bedroom cottage, outbuildings and annexe, in a beautiful hidden valley location
An opportunity to acquire a beautifully situated country property with land, the vendors have been in residence for nearly 20 years.
Outside there is a mixture of pastureland around the farmstead and beautiful mature woodland running along the valley with lovely walks and a wealth of flora and fauna, with the pretty meandering River Gwyddil running through. There is also a superb mature lake at the far end of the property.
The property is accessed via a long trackway which we understand is initially shared with one other property, with a further cottage in the woodlands beyond, which is accessed via a ford over the river in the valley, and is also a public footpath. In the agents’ opinion this is a truly beautiful and very special property, which might be utilised for a wide variety of uses including private residential, private equestrian or the keeping of livestock and possible holiday letting enterprise, subject to any necessary planning permissions being obtained.
The main house provides flexible accommodation with the adjoining cottage and might well suit two families wanting to live together.
Whilst the property enjoys a lovely rural location, it is only approx. 3 miles by road, or 1.5 miles walking distance, along a disused railway line, to the pretty town of Llandysul, which has a range of shops, supermarkets, butchers and Italian/Welsh deli, as well as a range of takeaways. The small village of Pencader has some local amenities including a shop, garage, takeaway and a public house.
More extensive facilities are offered by the commercial centre of Carmarthen to the south and the University town of Lampeter 15 miles to the north east, whilst to the north the beautiful Cardiganshire coast is easily accessed, with Aberporth and its beach being about 17 miles.

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.
