Approached via a 600m driveway winding down through the beautiful Cwm Tawel river valley, Glandwr Farmhouse, lies in the most idyllic of locations. Surrounded by acres of beautiful woods and farmland, and bordered by the River Nevern at it's garden edge, the setting is magical. A network of enchanting riverside walks and over over 1/2 mile of fishing rights this makes a perfect retreat, family home or continued holiday let in a picture-postcard setting. The Grade II Listed stone farmhouse is newly-renovated and combines traditional appeal with modern luxury with an eco-friendly ethos. High-quality features are evident throughout, with close attention to details and a focus on fine craftmanship. Underfloor heating and two log burning stoves provide warmth and comfort, and a 5-burner Rangemaster gas hob and electric double oven in a well-equipped kitchen will please the most demanding chef. There are four en-suite bedrooms, and an open-plan living/dining room, with a second sitting room being perfect for multigenerational use. The Farmhouse is currently let as a five-star holiday home, and the contents are available by separate negotiation. There is also an option to purchase farmland with an annual grazing income, further fishing rights, and a two-bedroom riverside cottage built in the longhouse style.

Grounds and Gardens

Beautifully secluded but not remote, the surrounding area is mostly farmland and mature woodland, winding down to the River Nevern through a private rural laneway providing views of stunning beauty abundant with wildlife, and culminating in the tranquil haven of Cwm Tawel - a riverfront location where three delightful and individually-located properties nestle in a secret valley. A haven for nature lovers, ramblers and birdwatchers, the surrounding footpaths provide a variety of birds and wildlife, including herons, kingfishers, woodpeckers, nuthatches, dippers, badgers, otters and red squirrels.

The Farmhouse is set in large, private, immaculately-maintained gardens and grounds with a dog-proof fence surround, established trees and shrubs, a small orchard, pretty herbaceous beds, and manicured lawns gently sloping down to the truly beautiful riverside frontage. Here you can enjoy a stroll along the riverbank, or a day s fishing in the most tranquil of surroundings, hearing only the babbling water and the sounds of nature. A large stock-proof, newly-fenced paddock lies to the front of the property, and there is a secluded raised lawn with an 8-person hot tub to the side. A sweeping drive and gravelled turning area accessed via the private gated entrance provides plenty of parking space. Just inside the driveway entrance there is a small summer house with panoramic views over the house and grounds towards the river.
