Penlan Fawr Farm Estate comprises the core Penlan Fawr Farm with a main farmhouse, converted coach house (planning for use as a holiday let) together with an excellent collection of traditional and modern outbuildings. Connected by an internal private track is a secondary holding called Pantmeddyg with a character 3 bedroom farmhouse with an attached 2 bedroom Mill cottage. Pantmeddyg & Mill Cottage are currently being let out on Assured Shorthold Tenancies. These enjoy private grounds, stone outbuildings with conversion potential and its own private track that adjoins the A475. The whole Estate extends to about 167 acres (stms-subject to measured survey) the majority of which is laid to pasture with an area of woodland that has great amenity/ sporting appeal.
A great deal of thought has gone into the Estate with the construction of internal tracks, gateways etc for ease of stock management and movement even for one person. Although the Estate already offers 4 properties (3 residential and 1 holiday use) there is potential to convert the traditional outbuildings to provide further accommodation. The excellent stabling and barns (one barn was previously used an indoor equestrian arena) and scope for gallop tracks etc provides an opportunity to expand this side of the business. There is a network of horse riding tracks around the property. The land and woodland also provide the perfect backdrop to expand upon the sporting and amenity values of the Estate together with the current agricultural, equestrian and residential aspects.
