Impressive 7 Bed Georgian Period Country House with Detached 2 Bed Cottage
(former country guest house and self-catering unit), quietly situated in lovely grounds of circa 1.25 Acres near the picturesque seaside village of Llangrannog and other sandy beaches on the Cardigan Bay Heritage Coast.
Llangrannog 3½ miles, Penbryn Sands 4½ miles, New Quay 8 miles, Aberaeron 10½ miles, Cardigan 11½ miles.
This beautiful 7 Bedroomed Georgian Country House boasts the classic symmetry and elegance of the time with understated ornament and well-proportioned rooms, being very distinctive with pink washed elevations, hip roof with front dormer, refurbished sash windows, pillared portico entrance, and comfortable, well-appointed accommodation retaining many original features. We are informed that the property dates from 1760, and was the original manor house for the surrounding estate. In the recent past it was successfully run as a Country Guest House and there is also a delightful 2 Bed Detached Cottage in the grounds, and a Double Garage. (EER: F)
Main Residence: Ground Floor: Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Day Room, Bedroom Suite with Dressing Room and Bathroom, Kitchen, Laundry Room, 2 Cloakrooms. First Floor: 4 Double Bedrooms all with En Suite Bathrooms. Second Floor: 2 Double Bedrooms with En Suite Bathrooms.
Detached 2 Bed Cottage: Entrance Hall, open-plan Kitchen & Lounge, 2 Bedrooms and Bathroom. Enclosed private garden with 'Hydro Pool' hot tub.
Grounds: The property is quietly set in 1.25 Acres of landscaped gardens (to be confirmed), with level lawns and fine mature trees, and enjoys a lovely outlook across neighbouring farmland and countryside.
Locality: This is an ideal location for coast and country, with numerous attractions and charming villages and towns in the area. Llangrannog is only 3½ miles away with many other golden beaches and coves nearby along Cardigan Bay, whilst the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Preseli Hills and Teifi Valley are a short drive away.
Every care has been taken to preserve the style, character and quality of this property and many original features have been retained including architraves, ornamental plasterwork and coving, papered ceilings, refurbished mahogany sash windows, doors, etc. – a delight for Georgian architecture enthusiasts. The house has a mix of electric heating and open fires, one with multi-fuel stove (electric radiators on the ground and first floors and Dimplex storage heaters on the second floor) and an lpg gas connection in the kitchen. All the rooms have lovely rural aspects over the property’s own sweeping gardens to neighbouring farm and pastureland beyond, with particularly far reaching views from the upper floors.
The property lies well back from the main A487 coast road (about a third of a mile), being accessed via a very long, shared approach driveway and then along the property’s own tree and daffodil lined private driveway that sweeps up to the residence, culminating in a large parking and turning area to the front of the residence. This is a very convenient location for coast, country and travel to town.

We are informed that the property amounts to 1.25 Acres in all (to be confirmed), with delightfully landscaped gardens and grounds including sweeping lawns all around the house and many stately old trees, providing a tranquil, parkland feel. To the far side of the residence is a kitchen garden with soft fruit and fruit trees, Greenhouse and well stocked borders, an ornamental pond and a variety of beautiful mature trees. There is also a children’s play area to the rear enclosed by picket fencing. The views are wonderful in all directions across neighbouring farm and pastureland to countryside beyond.
We understand that the main house and cottage are connected to mains water and mains electricity, and have a private drainage system. Telephone is understood to be connected and should be available to purchasers subject to the usual transfer arrangements.
We are informed that The Cottage is Council Tax Band “D” (Ceredigion County Council) Fixtures and fittings that are referred to within these particulars will be included in the sale unless otherwise stated.
The property is sold subject to and with the benefit of all wayleaves, easements and rights of way declared and undeclared.
We are informed that the property is freehold with vacant possession on completion, by arrangement.
This is one of the more prominent and prestigious properties in the locality, a substantial residential property currently utilised as a highly rated Bed & Breakfast, but with immense potential for alternatives ranging from a private family residence through to country restaurant etc. The cottage maybe considered for holiday letting, dependent relative accommodation, owners' private quarters thereby freeing up the entire main house for B & B.
This superior property is highly recommended, but viewing must be by prior appointment.
