Felin Wen is a delightfully situated, traditionally, stone, built cottage under a slate roof. The property has been constructed of traditional Pembrokeshire stone with, feature, hand-dressed, ‘Blue-Stone’ quoins, arched window heads and chimney stacks, expressing the signs of quality which lay within. Felin Wen benefits from four double bedrooms, across the top two floors, all with the character one would expect from a property of this period, to the ground floor there is a kitchen-dining room, living room and a, beautifully finished, aluminium, fully double glazed, conservatory which, seamlessly, merges the traditional and modern. To the front and side of the property lies the, circa 1750’s, Grade 11 listed, water mill, which was converted in the mid 1970’s to its current commercial guise. The mill, again, benefits from matching Pembrokeshire stone, ‘Blue-stone’ quoins and window heads, to the front façade, and sits under a, hipped, slate roof. Access from the minor roadway is via a, modern, reinforced, ‘commercial-grade’ bridge which leads onto a, part concrete, part gravelled, driveway which leads across the front of the property and further on to the parking area and to the various commercial elements of this unique country enterprise.

Felin Wen is situated just outside the tranquil Cych Valley hamlet of Boncath, some 20 minutes’ drive from the Cardigan Bay coastline, with its wide sandy beaches.  The property lies approximately 6 miles from the thriving market town of Newcastle Emlyn, which hosts a varied range of local facilities & amenities including shops, banks, eating houses, public houses, places of worship, a primary & secondary school, a public swimming pool & leisure centre, and is on the local bus route, making it easily accessible to the larger town of Cardigan and the administrative town of Carmarthen.  No directions are given in this portfolio as viewers are accompanied.

The property benefits from a myriad of landscaped gardens, woodland, orchards and pasture allowing for adaptability of usage in both, commercial and private use. Covering some 15 acres or thereabouts lay either side of the minor road serving Felin Wen. The original acreage, which lies to the West, away from the road and buildings, consists, predominantly, of deciduous woodland, which was planted under the premium farm woodland scheme (between 1995 and 1998) gaining an award from the Welsh Forestry Commission, and has been maintained, of late, with the thinning out of Ash due to dieback, offering fantastic walks and trails, within the property’s curtilage. The remaining acreage, totalling some 6 acres, lies across the minor roadway and consists of mainly rough pasture, with newly planted orchard, and would lend itself to the grazing of sheep.

Landscaped gardens and outbuildings

Felin Wen benefits from a diverse collection of landscaped, ornamental and forest garden areas for enjoyment. Dispersed with specimen trees and shrubs from across the globe, woodland walks are abundant, interspersed with seating areas, to allow for the full enjoyment of this, truly, tranquil location.

PIG STY/STORAGE            Beyond the commercial aspect of the development there is a refurbished pigsty, which has been sympathetically restored, to what can only be described as, it’s former glory and offers the ability to include livestock into any future plans, if desired.

GARDEN STORES/GARAGE               Beyond the, restored, pigsty there is a block-built garden store/garage, which benefits from power and lighting, offering, plenty, of storage for ‘ride-on’ lawnmower, implements and vehicles etc.

SALTING ROOM        Attached to the main dwelling, in near original condition, is the building that would have, historically, been utilised for animal housing/storage. Constructed to match the main house, with ‘blue-stone’ features and slate roof. Internally, original A-frames, cobbled floors and, wrap-around, salting table only serve to add to the eclectic feel of this lovely, characterful, addition to the main dwelling. Currently purposed as log store and ancillary storage.
