Full property Description
Cwm Howell is a beautiful detached home nestled in the idyllic Carmarthenshire countryside, boasting breathtaking views and over 8 acres of land.
The farmhouse offers four double bedrooms (three of which have fabulous views) and the master has an ensuite. Downstairs there are two spacious reception rooms and a lovely kitchen/family room. Across the rear of the house there is a superb south facing sun terrace overlooking the gardens, land and surrounding countryside.
Cwm Howell also boasts three cottages in the converted barns, each with full residential planning permission. Although a fantastic source of income, if the new owner was not looking for an income stream, the accommodation could be transformed into other uses (STP).
The property extends to approx. 8 acres of land consisting of gardens, woodland and rough grazing (the grazing land is currently overgrown).
Cwm Howell Farmhouse dates from around 1860. The original house was extended over the years. It offers superb accommodation and is in great condition thoughout, but there is the potential to modernise and renovate if desired. For those looking for secluded country living, this location is definitley worth considering - it is surrounded by its own land and has far reaching views from most of the property (both indoors and out)
Accessed via a meandering driveway which skirts the woodland to the north of the property, the driveway leads into a courtyard offering ample parking. The Farmhouse sits to the south while the cottages are located to the east of the yard.
Entering the farmhouse via the main door, leads into the entrance hall which gives access to both the downstairs WC and the main living room (with log burner and fabulous French Doors leading out to the South Facing gardens and those amazing views). Also accessed from the entrance hall is the inner hallway where the stairs rise to the first floor and a door leads to the kitchen/family room (with aga). The second living room is accessed from the family room. As is the rear hallway which in tun leads to the utility room.
Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom arranged around a spacious landing. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. Bedrooms one, two and three have wonderful far reaching views.
The Cottages are located just across the yard from the main house. These units have full residential planning permission. The largest cottage has two bedrooms on the first floor and open plan living downstairs. The second and third cottage are both one bedroom cottages. Each are self contained, and there is a lovely garden to the east of the cottages.
There is a single garage attached to the cottages.
The land surrounds the property, to the north and west it is woodland, to the south it is grazing land (which requires cutting back) and to the east it is gardens.
Services Mains electricity is connected. Private water & drainage. Oil central heating.
Cwm Howell Farmhouse is located about two miles north of the idyllic Tywi Valley and the village of Whitemills. Nantgaredig is 5 miles away.
Carmarthen is 7 miles south west, Llandeilo is 15 miles East and the A48 (M4) is 10 miles to the south.
Carmarthenshire is known as the "Garden of Wales" and the landscape surrounding Cwm Howell Farm, will not disappoint. From its elevated position the house overlooks stunning rolling hills and green fields, only a short drive takes you to the idyllic Tywi Valley and on to either Carmarthen to the west or Llandeilo to the East.
The handsome market town of Llandeilo fuses farming feet with country chic. Sat atop a hill overlooking the River Tywi, its narrow streets and pastel-painted Georgian houses sweep down to the impressive single-arch stone bridge below. It is little wonder Llandeilo was nominated by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in Wales.
Llandeilo boasts a great selection of independent traders and quirky antique shops. Shopkeepers take the business of window-dressing very seriously here and there’s often competition for the most elaborate and unique seasonal displays.
Llandeilo is the original home of international clothing and lifestyle brand Toast. Today, Rhosmaen Street and the streets off it, are full of quality stores and boutiques such as Bellissimo, Dot Clothing, The Lighthouse, Monsho, Relm Wear Rig Out and Barr & Co.
Two very different but equally appealing gardens compete for your attention in this part of Carmarthenshire.
The National Botanic Garden of Wales is a 560-acre complex that opened in 2000, with a range of themed gardens and the world’s largest single-span glasshouse among its attractions. If you visit ‘Pi’, a large contemporary sculpture in the gardens, you’ll get to see another of our historical gems nearby, Paxton’s Tower. The Neo-Gothic folly was built in honour of Lord Nelson and ‘Pi’ was designed specifically as the perfect frame for it.
Just minutes away, but a world apart in comparison, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d wandered onto the set of a period drama at Aberglasney Gardens. Its formal walled gardens date from Elizabethan times with a unique cloister garden at its heart.
Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in the world and this corner of Carmarthenshire has more than its fair share.
Just outside Llandeilo, Dinefwr Castle occupies a significant place in Welsh history. It’s also the setting of Meinir’s choice for a country walk. The fortress, perched on a hilltop overlooking the Tywi Valley, was where The Lord Rhys held court in the 12th century and influenced decisions about Wales. The 800-acre National Trust estate on which the castle sits is also home to 17th-century Newton House, Wales’ first parkland National Nature Reserve (NNR) and an 18th-century landscape park, enclosing a medieval deer park.
Approximately 5 miles south-east of Llandeilo, you’ll encounter the imposing ruins of Carreg Cennen Castle. We’re certain you’ll struggle to find a castle any more dramatic than this. Perched on a 90-metre limestone crag, Carreg Cennen’s silhouette dominates the skyline for miles around. It’s said that Urien, one of King Arthur’s knights, built it as his fortress. The combination of its stunning location, rich history and connection to the legend of Merlin means Carreg Cennen regularly features on lists of the most romantic places in Wales.
