We are delighted to offer to market a superbly located holiday lettings business set in around 15 acres of beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside with the lovely Gwendraeth Fach River in the valley below.
In all there is a character 3/4 bedroom detached owners farmhouse together with 3 of the very best high end B&B suites you will find, known as Bluebell, Buttercup and Daisy and they really are top notch, a 3 bed self-contained cottage (Wren Cottage) and a 3 bedroom self-contained detached cottage (Barn Owl Cottage).
The views from the properties are gorgeous and there was previously consent for Camping and Caravaning onsite (now lapsed). This collection of properties would suit multi generational living in 2 of the units (the Farmhouse and Wren Cottage for example) whilst still earning a living from Bluebell, Buttercup, Daisy and Barn Owl Cottage. Our vendor will include the fixtures and fittings for the B&B Rooms & Barn Owl Cottage so any purchaser can be up and running from day 1. Lots of possibilities with this one and fully deserves your attention !


The Old Dairy is centrally located for exploring Carmarthenshire with its ancient market towns, beautiful national trust gardens, historic castles and blue flag beaches. The Brecon Beacons, The Gower, Ffos Las racecourse and Pembrey motor racing circuit are all within easy reach.
The property is easily accessible being within easy reach of the M4 motorway which makes it very convenient for guests staying for short breaks and holidays.
Access to the site is via a shared driveway off the roadway (the drive diverts off to one other house away from The Old Dairy) which leads to The Cottages.
Views from the site are superb over the valley with the Gwendraeth Fach River winding its way through (which has Fishing Rights along its very long bank access and is a long way from the house so no flooding issues to worry about)
Overall a lovely setting with lots of outside space to enjoy !
