Cynwyl Elfed, Carmarthen

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A character 3 bed detached house set well back from the road with just under 3 Acres of mostly sloping pastureland and two superb detached outbuildings with further conversion potential (subject to any consents required) all with lovely views across the valley.

In the house there is a kitchen/diner with utility and cloakroom off, a lounge with oil-fired woodburner effect stove, a sitting / dining room, on the first floor there are 3 bedrooms, family bathroom and a walk in wardrobe with an attic accessed via steps.

We would suggest that the land is not particularly suited for keeping horses however it is ideal for the keeping of sheep, goats, chickens and pigs etc.

The outbuildings are crying out for conversion (subject to any consents) and are both a good size and the views from the house are gorgeous (see picture from front bedrooms on details)

A bit of work is required here and there but with a bit of tlc this would make a cracking traditional Smallholding conveniently located on a bus route into Carmarthen or Newcastle Emlyn.

The Land

The land is predominantly located to the right hand side of the house (as looked at from the roadway) and is accessed via a gated trackway off the lane to the house and reaches down to the main road on one side (see land plan)

The land is gently to steeply sloping generally with some smaller flatter areas near and around the house. Most of the land is reverting to wild as it hasn't been cut or grazed for sometime now but is perfectly ready to put sheep, pigs or goats on as they would love it.

The 2 main outbuildings with this holding have masses of conversion potential (subject to any consents required) and the views over the valley are sublime.

So with a little work and a general tidy up of the land by some energetic new owners you'd have a lovely place, set well back off the road, superb views and with no immediate neighbours.


From Carmarthen go along the A484 to Cynwyl Elfed. In Cynwyl Elfed continue along towards Cwmduad (don't take the left towards Hermon) and continue on this road for 1 mile. You will then see a turning on the right sign posted towards Llanpumpsaint with a bus stop on the right and the entrance to Pant Yr Haidd is opposite the bus stop, clearly sign posted on the left.
