The market town of Cardigan is some 6 ½ miles distant and provides for a wide array of amenities. The market village of Crymych is some 4 ½ miles distant and again provides for a number of facilities. The small coastal town of Newport is some 4 miles distant and is a popular centre for tourists.

Tenure: Advised freehold.


Services: Advised mains electric and water. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating. Mixture of timber and UPVC double glazed windows and external doors. Council tax band ‘F’ £1776.41 (2018/19).


Directions: On reaching Eglwyswrw on the A487 from Cardigan, go out through the village for Fishguard and you will see a left hand junction for Haverfordwest B4329 and the Penfro Filling Station set above the junction. Directly opposite is a lay-by and bus shelter. Turn into the lay-by and you will see an entrance lane climbing up past a bungalow. Go along this lane to Pencnwc Mawr.


Description: As mentioned, Pencnwc is a 48 ½ acre smallholding. The dwelling has been upgraded over the years, but still retains various character features, and provides generous accommodation for a medium sized family. The outbuildings are set around the yard, higher up from the house, and are currently used mainly for storage purposes, although several have purpose built mangers, and would lend themselves for livestock/equestrian housing quite easily. Set away in the field behind the yard is a steel framed 135’ x 70’ sheep housing/handling shed, currently divided up into 8 large pens with central passage, and with power and water connected. It could be used for other uses, subject to certain changes, if desired. The main block of pastureland lies above the Homestead and the woodland lies below and a public footpath runs along the entrance lane down into the Woodland, before reaching the Dwelling’s curtilage.

The Vendors have had an initial meeting with a local planning consultant as regards to the conversion of the stone ranges to say Holiday Let purposes and he was quite positive about having consents granted for such a purpose, but perspective purchasers are to satisfy themselves by making further enquiries if they so wish.
