The accommodation includes: Sitting Room, Dining Room, Two Kitchen areas, Cloakroom/WC, Four Bedrooms and Family Bathroom. This is an excellent family home with its enclosed, sunny walled garden, but would also be an ideal holiday let.

LOCATION

The charming hamlet of Caerfarchell, which has been designated as a conservation area, is situated approximately 2 1/2 miles from both St Davids and the picturesque harbour village of Solva, and is close to the old St Davids Airfield, which provides pleasant walks for dog & nature lovers!

Renowned for its Cathedral and ruined Bishops Palace, St Davids is situated some fifteen miles North West of the County town of Haverfordwest, and has the benefit of numerous amenities and facilities including Doctors' and Dentists' Surgeries, Secondary & Primary Schools, Chapels, Banks, Pharmacy, Public Houses, Restaurants, Hotels, Art Galleries, Gift Shops and a Supermarket etc. The beautiful Pembrokeshire Coastline is close by and within easy reach are the beaches and coves of Caerfai, Porthclais, Whitesands, Solva and Abereiddy.

The sought after village of Solva offers wonderful opportunities for boating or 'bucket and spade' enthusiasts and walkers, as well as restaurants, cafes, public houses, shops, galleries, places of worship, post office, doctors' surgery, and primary school.

DESCRIPTION

This attractive stone Manse was built for the minister of the adjacent chapel. It is Georgian in style, but built in the 1870's of Middle Mill granite according to the local Pevsner Guide. It retains a wealth of original period features including original stripped pine flooring and decorative cornicing, and has been sympathetically upgraded and refurbished over recent years to create its current stylish and well-presented interior.

This excellent family-sized home, with enclosed sunny walled garden, would also make an ideal holiday let (as it was for a number of years in the previous ownership). The current owners have installed 'wireless' broadband (via TFL radio beam from Brawdy) which provides good broadband speed.
