Description of Property
Edwinsford has been developed as a superb Sporting Estate extending to about 502 acres of freehold land and river, as shown on the sale plan. Its ancient and mature woodland and steep valley sides provide the ideal terrain for a magnificent high pheasant shoot. In addition there is rough shooting for duck, woodcock and snipe over some 318 acres of adjoining sporting rights which are held in perpetuity.
The estate is renowned for its exciting sea trout and salmon fishing on the River Cothi. The Catch Records show that careful management of the river in recent years has paid off with good runs of fish. A summer evening with a fly rod on one of the named pools and catches is an opportunity to which most fishermen would find memorable.
The Lethr-Llwyd ‘Mountain’ above Keeper’s Cottage which runs up to 278m (913ft) is a spectacular vantage point from which to view large areas of glorious landscape. During the spring and summer the valley comes to life with an abundance of rhododendrons and bluebells, and the estate gives a delightful variety of changing colours throughout the
Following the construction of ponds and the establishment of a riverside corridor, together with the planting of hedgerows and many hardwood trees, the Estate provides a thriving
habitat to abundant wildlife and a great variety of birds. Its management has been the subject of considerable effort and expenditure by recent owners, producing a well-rounded
estate in good heart.
The Edwinsford Estate offers the rare opportunity for the keen countryman of an October weekend which can provide duck
flighting, pheasant shooting and a realistic chance of salmon.
Located near to the centre of the Estate is an excellent period cottage, built of stone, recently refurbished with double glazing and central heating. It has a living room, a large fitted kitchen, utility room, three bedrooms and a bathroom with shower cubicle and separate wc, together with an outside WC and store room.
Adjoining Keeper’s Cottage is an open-plan Bothy comprising a living room / kitchen, cloakroom with shower cubicle, WC and hand basin, and a large entrance lobby with generous hanging space.
Double glazing and central heating make it comfortable, whilst a large patio is ideal for warm summer evenings.
This Bothy could be let as a holiday cottage outside the shooting season, when it has been used as the shoot room for the guns.
