A productive mixed Welsh farm of about 451 acres is the first of its size to come to market in some time, and is likely to attract interest from both Welsh and English farmers.
Pant-y-rhuaf Farm, near Llanddowror village, Carmarthenshire, is currently farmed as a 150-head beef and arable farm producing combinable crops and potatoes. The farm is in one block with the main farmhouse and buildings at the centre, and includes four cottages, lakes, and non-commercial woodland. It is about 13 miles from Carmarthen and is for sale as a whole at a guide price of £4.35m, as the current owner relocates.
“It’s been quite some time since a working farm of this size has come to market in Wales – it’s really quite unique,” said Matthew Sudlow, associate at Strutt & Parker.
“I am anticipating lots of interest throughout the UK. With arable, grass, and farmhouses offering a separate income stream, it’s a great package,” he said.
The land is predominantly Grade 3 with about 300 acres of arable land and about 70 acres of pasture. The remaining 80 acres include woodland and four acres of lakes.
The farm has three old, traditional farm buildings and two larger, modern portal-framed sheds totaling 631sq ft and used for general-purpose and cattle housing. The buildings include a chemical store, boxes and bull pens.
The four-bedroom farmhouse is of traditional style, built in stone and rendered. A pair of semi-detached cottages, a bungalow and a detached cottage sit near the centre of the farm, each with two bedrooms, and in good condition. The bungalow is currently occupied by a farmworker, although is not subject to agricultural occupancy, while the other houses are rented out.
Planning consent has been granted to develop on-farm quad bike trails at Pant-y-rhuaf. The farm is not currently in any environmental schemes and SPS entitlements may be available by separate negotiation.
