General Note

The farm is located 1½ miles from the University and Coastal resort of Aberystwyth in a delightful sheltered valley setting set off a private drive with extensive frontage to a council maintained road and just a short distance from the main A487 trunk road.

Seldom do farms become available on the early growing coastal belt. Part of the land at Tan Y Bwlch is immediately adjacent to Aberystwyth South Beach. The farm is easily accessible to the cycle path along the river Ystwyth and the popular All Wales coastal path (see plan).

The imposing and substantial stone and slate Georgian style farmhouse has a sheltered south facing location and is currently two separate dwellings, but can easily be converted back to a six bedroom farmhouse with its own grounds slightly isolated from the outbuildings.

The outbuildings are mainly traditional in nature (see photographs) and are ripe for development subject to the necessary consents being obtained.

The majority of the land is level, highly prolific and all laid to pasture is capable of sustaining high stock levels throughout the year.
Approximately 63 acres on the southern boundary is a sloping Sheepwalk as highlighted on the plan.
