Set overlooking the stunning Rhinog Mountain range the property benefits from fine views in this stunning corner of the Snowdonia National Park.
For sale as a whole with further land available by separate negotiation.
Farmhouse, holiday accommodation & 48 acres of grazing land.
Cae Gwyn Farm is situated in an attractive rural location within the Snowdonia National Park from which many attractions of Snowdonia may be easily accessed. The market town of Dolgellau, lying some 8 miles to the South, is within easy reach and offers a range of local shops, public houses and administrative services.
Of particular note is that the renowned Coed y Brenin centre, one of the national hubs for mountain bikers, trail runners and visitors generally, is within touching distance of Cae Gwyn Farm.
Within an hour’s drive is the University City of Bangor which hosts a range of larger national retailers and supermarkets.
For travelling further afield the North Wales coast is easily reached by way of the A55 North Wales Expressway which also provides links to the national motorway network. In less than two hours Manchester International Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport may be reached and a direct train link from Bangor to London Euston takes approximately 3½ hours.
The traditional Welsh farmhouse offers comfortable living space over two floors with many traditional features still being retained. Whilst requiring modernisation in part, the ground floor is well arranged to provide comfortable living space with the kitchen diner and reception room both benefitting from fine views. Upstairs extends to four bedrooms, two of which benefit from an en-suite, and one family bathroom.
Cae Gwyn Farm benefits from having an established and successful ‘turn-key’ holiday business targeting mountain bikers on site.
The facilities are briefly comprised of:
Bed & breakfast barn
The fully furnished B&B barn provides comfortable living space and four en-suite rooms over 2 floors.
It has a fully equipped kitchen so can be used as a self-catering unit when not being used for B&B.
Benefitting from facilities for up to 10 individuals, the camping barn is situated on the first floor of one of the traditional stone outbuildings and provides a higher end camping facility for those not wishing to face the Welsh elements at night!
Cae Gwyn benefits from planning permission for all year use in the fields adjoining the house. The site is serviced by a toilet and shower unit as well as camper’s kitchen area and storage facilities.
For further information please contact the selling agents.
The land extends to approximately 48 acres of grazing land split into a number of paddocks and easily manageable enclosures. The land is predominantly permanent pasture with internal and external boundaries being a mixture of hedgerows and post and wire fencing. The fields are serviced by a natural water supply.
In addition there is c.1 kilometre of fishing rights on the river Eden, a SSSI nature reserve and additional land for sale by separate negotiation.
Cae Gwyn has been owner operated successfully since 2005 and trades year round to a healthy profitable level. Owing to its location in the Snowdonia National Park, and the variety of accommodation on offer, the business continues to see bookings outside of the main summer season with many return customers. The site is particularly well visited by mountain bikers due to its proximity to Coed y Brenin mountain bike centre. The business benefits from its own website and the business still has scope to increase profitability by promoting higher occupancy and accommodation rates. The business trades below the VAT threshold and further financial information is available from the selling agent, on request, with actual trading accounts to be made available following a formal successful viewing.
