Welsh upland offers amenity, sporting and renewable potential

Almost 800 acres of upland in the Cambrian Mountains is for sale, including a lake and a range of sporting and wildlife habitats.

Blaen Mwyro forms part of the Trawsgoed Estate and is being sold by the Vaughan family to raise capital for a leisure development. It includes the source of the River Towy and is being sold through Knight Frank and Morgan & Davies, who are looking for offers of more than £245,000.

The guide price includes sporting and mineral rights, while grazing rights on the land are registered to a third party. There is scope for the development of renewable energy schemes on the land, which rises to 525m. The landscape is gently undulating with a mixture of grassland, heath and boggy areas, hosting black grouse, hare, snipe and roe deer. (Knight Frank 01285 659 771; Morgan & Davies 01570 423 623)
