This discription is mine.... I own this property and I will be using my own words to describe it.
I am delighted to offer for sale our 3 bedroom semi-detached traditional farmhouse with a large spacious self contained wooden cabin all in over an acre of land that includes level areas, outbuildings and gardens all sharing wonderful views of the estuary the Abbey and the village. We have planted scores of trees of mixed varieties and we have a fruiting Mulberry tree that we planted 38 years ago in the back garden.
It is important that our viewers understand the extent and variety of spaces and opportunity offered here to avoid viewing without knowing the amount of commitment, imagination and work required to take advantage of this potential.
1 Brynllewelyn is situated in St. Dogmaels with the sun rising on the front of the house then spending the rest of the day in the back garden and on the land, shining through the large
windows at the back of the house.
In the house are 3 generous bedrooms. 2 double and one single. The bathroom is new and large.
The loft is large with good headroom ideal for conversion to 2 more rooms.
The landing , bathroom and small bedroom, are all afternoon suntraps that look over the back garden. The original staircase leads down into the kitchen and dining room with old quarry tiled floor and light coming in from the south and west. Outside in the sunny backyard is a small stone built outhouse that has a slate roof , water, electricity and drainage. The yard leads up steps to the garden with lawns and raised beds, a clay pizza oven and a fruiting Mulberry tree along with a beautiful lacy silver birch and fenced all round with 2 gates, one leading to the Cabin and the other to our private driveway, orchard area, chicken run and the field.
The field slopes towards the North East but catches most of the summer sunshine. In it we have planted scores of trees of many varieties including Scots Pines, Sweet Chestnut, Ash, Cherry Oak and Silver Birch etc.
Our private drive way leads from the roadway right up and passed the side of the house to the cabin and beyond with ample car parking and turning space. There are numerous small sheds here adjacent to a small orchard and a good chicken run.
This has been our family home for almost 40 years and it has served us well with a generous, comfortable and beautiful home close to the heart of the village yet not in the hub bub. My children have grown up with the advantage of room to climb, ride, dig, canoe, swim in the sea and be part of the local community. They have used local schools, joined local clubs and joined in local activities like The RNLI Life Boat Crew on Poppit Sands and Youth Club.
The WOODEN CABIN has planning permission to be a family annex and is self contained with its own kitchen, shower room and loo, a bedroom and a small loft bedroom/store room, all joined to the large main living area and has views across the Village and the estuary out to Cardigan Island. It is set in its owned landscaped grounds with some beautiful plants, shrubs and small trees. There is a small vegetable garden area and also a large work shed/store.
If you can imagine putting all of this together with panoramic views you will be getting the idea.
St. Dogmaels is a very sought after location and houses like mine which is relatively unchanged are becoming rare especially those with a little land attached and still in the village. There is room to grow produce here, sell flowers from the garden, rear animals, camp in the field, store your canoe, run a bed and breakfast or rent the house out for holidays. Or use your own imagination.
The Village has become an outstanding tourist area attracting visitors, especially walkers all year round and families in the school holidays. The village has such a lot to offer both residents and visitors with the Coach House Cafe and the Hanes Llandoch Museum. This community project provides learning activities like Welsh Language and IT and hosts the famous BBC Food Award winning LOCAL PRODUCE MARKET every Tuesday. From here comes the famous annual Medievel Day on August Bank Holiday, annual plant and arts and craft sales besides the in house art gallery and monthly exhibitions. Not forgetting Y Felin our working water mill with a beautiful pond and resident ducks. They really mill the grain there and you can buy the flour and bread in thire small shop. The St. Dogmaels Abbey ruins sit comfortably right next door, in the best spot in the village. Sheltered and warm ready to host the Shakespeare performances each year and welcome history enthusiasts and families alike. My children played there and now my grand children enjoy themselves there too. .
For families the village has a preschool an infant and primary school nestled in it's heart next to the play park , the playing field and the village hall. We have a good post office and general stores and 4 pubs all offering food along with the local Chippy. There are many activities happening here on a regular basis from youth club to singing, Pilates to Welsh Drama, art classes and Kung Fu.
This locality offer residents and visitors the chance to use the local West Wales Wild Life Park with its boarded marshland walks and water buffalo, the fantastic Glass Cafe and education centre.
Also available in the area are canoeing, sailing, river trips, sea fishing and wildlife sea trips from here. There is the chance of seeing seals, dolphins otter and river and sea birds. It is all quite amazing.
There are bus links from the village to as far south as Carmarthen and Haverfordwest, Newport, Fishguard, and north to Aberporth, Aberaeron, Newquay and Aberystwyth. We are lucky enough to have the novel Poppit Rocket, a small bus that runs a shuttle service that particularly supports walkers between Cardigan and St. Davids via Moylegrove and Newport.
