Description

Aberelwyn Granary is a fascinating conversion of a grain store on the site of a former watermill. This quirky little cottage, dating back in part to the sixteenth century, retains many interesting features, with a wealth of original woodwork, stonework and slate. The property is detached, situated about 50 metres beyond Aberelwyn Mill (WAV433) with shared driveway access, in a rural location 11 miles north of Whitland and 15 miles south east of Newport, ideal for touring both the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and West Wales coastline as well as the beautiful, unspoilt countryside of Carmarthenshire, the “garden of Wales”.

The property is arranged over several levels, with steep slate steps, and wooden open-tread stairs, making it unsuitable for the less able. There is also limited headroom in some areas, with sloping, beamed ceilings and low clearance over staircases. “Duck or Grouse”! The Granary is comfortably heated by electric radiators, electric and woodburning stove, and has WiFi. Entrance, via an old stable-style door, is direct into the kitchen.

Kitchen: with antique patterned quarry tiled flooring, two chairs in front of large woodburning stove, fitted kitchen units, electric cooker (double oven and ceramic hob) and a full range of kitchenware, including a Krups Nespresso coffee machine. The Utility area, open plan and adjacent to the kitchen, has a fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine, as well as storage for coats, boots and cleaning materials.

Bathroom: on the ground floor, with contemporary suite and fittings, shower over the bath, WC and basin on wooden vanity cupboard, heated towel rail, shaver point and extractor fan.

From the kitchen, there are three deep slate steps up to the dining area.

Dining area: with slate floor, dining table and two chairs. Open tread wooden staircase up to the sitting room.

Sitting Room: a delightful room with a carefully blended mix of the contemporary and traditional. Sofa, armchair, TV, DVD player, electric flame-effect stove, reading lamp, varnished wooden flooring and high beamed ceiling. Open tread wooden steps up to a Study area with desk, chair, Visitor Information and a small selection of games. Off the sitting room is the bedroom.

Bedroom: compact but very well thought out, with lovely beamed ceiling and part-glazed door to Juliet balcony overlooking the garden. Simply furnished with a double bed and chest of drawers, mirrors, hairdryer. A small fitted wardrobe is located in the sitting room, immediately outside the bedroom door.

Guests at the Granary have their own garden area, with outdoor seating and chimenea, completely separate and private from the Mill, and a private parking space to the rear of the cottage.  

There is a lot to see and do in this excellent, central location. 15-20 miles north-west takes you to Newport (Pembrokeshire), Fishguard and Goodwick Sands, and to the north, it is only 20 miles to the lovely beach at Aberporth. All along this coastline are boat trips for dolphin and seal spotting. Travel twenty miles south and you reach the opposite coastline, Pendine Sands, Dylan Thomas’s Boathouse at Laugharne and the stunning Cilgerran Castle. Inland, the Carmarthenshire countryside is home to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and Aberglasney Gardens. There are many historic houses and castles within easy reach. Excellent walking from the door, and for a truly off-grid experience, visit the Lammas Eco-Village, less than a mile away.

Notes: some sloping beamed ceilings; shower headroom 6’4”; the property is adjacent to a working dairy farm.

Electricity and electric heating included; initial basket of logs provided

Reviews

It is a wonderful property. Restored with taste, with attention to small details. The reality is even better then the pictures on the website. Old modern necessities in a old traditional heritage site. We met the owners, and they have an inspiring vision on the future of the site. Note it is next to a real life working diary farm. But ear plugs do the job. I had a visit to farm and a nice talk about farming and the country life in Wales with the farmer. With his central location you never have to travel far to see most of South and Mid Wales. The welcome basket was a real treat : with olive oil for cooking, a delicious cake, coffee, a bottle of wine and milk. We knew there was an Nespresso machine so we brought our own extra coffee. We enjoyed our stay.Tom - 24th July 2018
