  • Bedrooms: 5
Llys Dewi is a unique and fascinating cottage, steeped in history with parts of the property dating as far back as 1841, and boasting the charm and layout of traditional cottage, yet the style and standard expected of modern day living. Situated in the heart of Capel Dewi, the property benefits from the convenience of being only 5 miles from Carmarthen town centre, yet also the joys of village life, and the potential to rent/buy fishing rights nearby down the River Towy, subject to personal enquiry and availability.

Originally Capel Dewi's inn, known as the Farmer's Arms, the property has been renovated by the current owner to a high standard, creating a light and welcoming home, yet retaining the cottage's character and sympathetically styling the property to enhance its features, such as its log burner, deep window sills, textured walls and wooden floorboards. The accomodation briefly comprises: Hall, Lounge, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room, Pantry, Cloakroom and Utility on the ground floor, with Five Bedrooms, Bathroom and Shower Room on the first floor.

Externally, the property enjoys a garden that was made for the sunshine! With vegetable patches, lawned grounds, a greenhouse, patio seating area, flower beds and babbling brook, this garden offers it all, and would be perfect for someone with green fingers! The property offers driveway parking for several vehicles with a turning/parking bay to the front of the outbuilding, which briefly comprises garage, workshop, potting shed and store room, all of which offer plenty of potential for opportunity and conversion, subject to necessary planning consents.

Capel Dewi is a semi-rural village situated in the heart of the Towy Valley. The village is approximately five miles to the County Town of Carmarthen and nine miles to Crosshands for A48/M4 link roads. The River Towy (or Afon Tywi in Welsh) runs alongside Capel Dewi and is the longest river that runs entirely through Wales. It is 68 miles long and on its journey seaward it is joined by several other arbitraries. The river is renowned for its fishing beats, of which the nearest to the property would be the two acre Alltrodyn Trout lake, where you can catch and release brown and rainbow trout, with casting platforms and access to a fishing lodge. Fishing rights along the river are available, subject to enquiry and availability.

Step Outside

The front garden comprises of two beds of slate chippings, with central paved pathway from the front iron gate to the front door, lined with colourful flower beds. The tarmac driveway runs alongside the property and down to a turning bay to the right of the outbuildings, providing parking or several vehicles.

The south facing rear garden on a beautiful sunny day is a burst of colour. The patio seating area is under a wooden frame, currently adored with fairy lights, and is conveniently near the kitchen for summer barbecues or drinks in the evening. There are two areas within the garden where you can let your market garden thrive; next to the patio, and across the lawned garden with daffodils galore and around to the left, where there stands a greenhouse and two sizeable beds, currently covered with bark chippings, but which could be the ideal place to grow your own vegetables.
