LOCATION

Lower Summerhill is nestled on the edge of the village of Letterston, situated down a country road, with bridleway links up to the village and local amenities. Despite your position in the heart of the countryside, just a half a mile drive takes you straight onto the A40, with links right across Pembrokeshire, but only two miles away bringing you to the idyllic village of Wolfscastle, with a two AA rosette restaurant and charming character inn, and one mile to the village of Letterston, with various shops and restaurants, each village with bus routes.

To the north of the county lies the market town and ferry port of Fishguard and village of Goodwick, where there is a ferry terminal to Southern Ireland, and St Davids, renowned as Britain's smallest city, which has numerous facilities such as Schools, Chapels, Banks, Restaurants, Hotels, Art Galleries, Gift Shops, Supermarket, etc. at the heart of which stands the historic Cathedral and ruined Bishops Palace.

Pembrokeshire’s west coast offers long sandy beaches such as Newgale and Broad Haven, particularly popular with 'bucket and spade' and boating enthusiasts, whilst walkers and bird-watchers appreciate the coastal path, which leads to the quaint coastal village of Little Haven. Pembrokeshire’s offshore islands are famous for their incredible natural beauty and fantastic array of wildlife, both above and below the surface with boat trips operating for over 40 years. Skomer and Skokholm islands and their waters are home to a huge variety of birds, including the largest Puffin Colony in Southern Britain, and the largest concentration of Manx-Shearwaters in the world. Further inland lies the county town of Haverfordwest, which has numerous facilities to offer, including popular high street stores, schools and a further educational college, hospital, main line train station, cinema, leisure centre and restaurants.

Across the Cleddau Bridge are various tourist attractions that Pembrokeshire are renowned for, with wildlife hot spots such as Folly Farm and Anna’s Welsh Zoo home to a host of animals, from tigers and lions to peacocks and wallabies, and adventure parks and activity centres such as Heatherton and Oakwood Theme Park. The Bluestone Resort is a 5* National Park Resort, offering fine cuisine, log cabin accommodation and a waterpark ideal for family breaks and days out.

The A477 continues through to the popular destinations of Saundersfoot and Tenby, Harbour Beach having secured the top spot of ‘Best Beach in Europe’ because of the quality of its water, the beauty of its environment and its reputation among visitors, e-tourist organisation European Best Destinations said. Slightly further afield is the well known Pendine Sands and the Town of Camarthen with its shopping precincts and Cinema, Main Line Railway Station. From Carmarthen, the English Border lies approximately 90 miles, with airports at Cardiff and Gatwick close by, providing international transport links.

Externally

The property is approached by a gravel driveway with a bridleway running alongside, sheltered under a canopy of mature trees, which opens up to reveal cream Pembrokeshire long house to the left, facing a landscaped lawned garden to the front, with mature trees and hedgerow borders and a feature stream running down the lawn and disappearing below ground. There is ample parking and turning space to the front of the property, and a further parking area within the rear grounds, secured by an estate gate.

To the immediate rear of the property are two gravel patio seating areas, surrounded by an array of vibrant spring flower borders and mature shrubs, which both effortlessly flow onto the main part of the garden.

The lovingly tended and manicured grounds present a balance of human design and nature's hand, with lawned grounds interspersed fruit trees and shrubs, and bordered right around woodland that provides privacy a view that changes with each season, featuring rhododendrons and azaleas together with bluebells, snowdrops and primroses in the spring, with each summer bringing an array of wild and cultivated roses, honeysuckle, clematis, geraniums and poppies galore!

The main feature of this period style garden is the lake with central mature shrub island, up to 13ft deep, the pond is naturally fed and can be floodlit by lighting fixed to surround trees (light fixtures waiting for re-installment).

Beyond the garden lies two fields, and two stables on a concrete base, which would benefit from maintenance.
