The Owners Say...
We have been here for over 10 years and have put a lot of effort into the restoration and renovation, retaining as many original features of the property as practicable. Its with a heavy heart we now find we need to move closer to family and have to leave our much cherished home. We are sure the new owners will be as happy here as we have been.
Come On In...
This is a beautifully presented, 6 bedroom, 4 bathroom traditional stone built farmhouse nestled deep in the Pembrokeshire countryside.
Entrance via steps to the kitchen door, an inviting and light room with central island and white gloss cabinets and a door out to a cosy sun room, ideal for morning coffee.
The living room sits adjacent to the kitchen and still retains many original features, you will see additional ones throughout the home.

The dining room is attractively set out with recycled wide plank solid wood flooring, exposed beam and double doors leading to outside to a paved area. The property has 4 bath / shower-rooms all have white suites and one being a Jack and Jill bathroom, and two shower rooms one of which is en-suite and 2 further W.Cs
In the 1980’s the property was extended to provide a stand-alone annexe. The present owners have extended and modified the property to form a single dwelling with 6 bedrooms and 4 shower rooms / bathrooms. Part of the property can be used as an annexe which includes a second kitchen/diner, living room with extensive views, a bathroom and further W.C / utility room. This space could be used for multifamily occupancy or as an additional revenue stream for Bed & Breakfast, or Self Catering. There is further flexibility in that it can be apportioned via internal doors to form either a 2 bed, 1 bathroom and 2nd WC / utility room unit, or, a larger unit of 3 bed, 1 bathroom, 1 shower room and WC /utility. Both configurations have the use of a separate entrance.
Externally the property is approached via a long drive which opens into the yard with ample parking and outbuilding separated in to 2 garages/machinery store, work shop and an utility room, W.C. and office.
The property is encompassed by gardens which are laid out as a continuous labyrinth (for ease of mowing - no reversing or shunting!) and which is bordered with an array of perennial flowers, shrubs and trees planted with wildlife in mind. The garden benefits from raised vegetable beds and a Keder green house, fruit cage and a small orchard. There is plenty of storage with a wooden shed and a charming old railway wagon. To the left as you enter the yard is an old calf shed which again could be adapted for future use (subject to planning consent).
The land is to the front and side of the property and is a mixture of grazing paddocks and woodland which drops down to the rivers Cych and Pibydd. The location offers spectacular, far reaching countryside views which are breathtaking at any given time of year.
The property has an unique history. In addition to the iron age settlement, it is also reputed to be the site of the manor of Cadifor Fawr, an 11th century Welsh nobleman. A plaque reading "The old house which was built about 200 feet to the north east from this spot 1760, took fire from the back parlour flue (and burnt down at night) on the 9th of August 1831. David, only son of W Jones built this house here in the autumn 1831" There is also a stone taken from the old house showing it was built in 1765. Additionally there is a new plaque " Rebuilt 2011 DH & SM Jenkins".
