Moylegrove stands within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which is designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Naturall Beauty’ and is protected accordingly.

The nearby coastal town of Newport is within easy car driving distance which provides a range of local amenities to include several shops, primary school, restaurants, public houses, hotels, cafes, art galleries, health centre, dental surgery etc. A wider array of educational, commercial and recreational facilities can be found at Cardigan, some 5 miles from the property.

The stunning Pembrokeshire coastline is within easy car driving distance, Poppit Sands is only a 5 mile journey and the dramatic scenery at Ceibwr Bay which was the film set for Moby Dick in 1953 is within a mile or so of Cwm Bach. There are 18 Hole Golf Courses at Newport Sands and also at Gwbert, Cardigan. Carmarthen is approximately 1 hours driving time and the M4 is available at Pont Abraham with Cardiff just around a 2 hour journey.

From our Cardigan Office take the A487 (signposted Fishguard) follow this road and after passing 'Gamallt' concrete on your right please take the next sharp right hand turning (200yards after the dip in the road). Follow this road for about 1/2 a mile. At the cross roads go straight across passing Trefigin Quarry. At the staggered cross roads go straight across and continue for approx. 1/2 to 3/4 miles. You will see a Track on your Right with the name plate "Cwm Bach" . The property is located 3/4 of a mile down this track after passing a bungalow on the right and Llwyngwydd Farm on the left. Continue down this track taking care as it may be slightly uneven and stony.
Please do not follow your 'sat nav' as it will take you to the village not the property. See location plan.

Cwm Bach occupies a magical setting on the periphery of the coastal village of Moylegrove and if you follow the footpath from the property you can actually walk to this popular village which is home to the beautiful Ceibwr Bay. Approached from the public road down a long private single track, the residence is located within a small wooded valley flanked by meandering streams. The original residence dates back to the 17th century when it was a small cottage with later extensions taking place in the 1900's. The property does now require updating and improvement but the potential is clear and very rarely do such properties appear on the open market.

Adjacent to the property is a stone building which does have conversion appeal subject to gaining the necessary consents and the detached stable block with ménage should attract interest for equestrian purposes.

Enjoying such a beautiful setting there is a combination of pasture and woodland which leads down to the stream boasting numerous wild flowers and the only way to be fully appreciate the scenery is to actually see it. Cwm Bach offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a smallholding in a fabulous location which is ripe for some improvement. Cwm Bach is described in more detail (approx. dimensions only):
