The Old Forge Pump House was built in 1939 to pump water to a sister Pump House at Pembrey. From Ministry of Defence ownership it was then owned by the Water Board to service Kidwelly until 1980. It was renovated in the early 21st century and purchased by the current owners in 2009. Since then much of the grounds have been tastefully landscaped. The 1 bedroom annex which is suitable for a family overspill is currently let out as a holiday let business and currently yields approx £10,000 per annum. We are informed by the owners that solar panels installed in 2012 have 17 more years of feeding tariffs and also generate an income of £700 per annum. The property is situated close to the Gwendraeth Fach river well known for its fishing with trout, sewin and salmon. Local recollection going back 90 years informs us that there have been no flooding issues from the river and property in that time. The property has been tastefully converted, has double glazing, under floor oil central heating, 2 of the bedrooms are en-suite with a family bathroom. A downstairs, disabled friendly shower and separate utility.
