Quietly situated off a country lane, with farms and smallholdings along the way, and down a track shared with the neighbouring property, Crug Bychan provides stunning views of Cardigan Bay. The village of Ferwig is less than a mile away with the bustling community and market town of Cardigan a mere 3 miles distant. Here a full range of amenities, including supermarkets, surgeries, schools, a cinema, theatres and a castle, are all available. From Cardigan, Aberystwyth, a university town, is about 45 minutes’ drive and Carmarthen with its access to the M4 approximately 45 minutes. The lovely, well-renowned coastal villages of Gwbert, New Quay and Tresaith, and beaches at Mwnt, Poppit and Penbryn, are all nearby. The whole coastal area is a marine nature reserve with its own bottlenose dolphin and seal populations. The beach and iconic medieval church at Mwnt are a short walk away.
The primary entrance from the courtyard, which provides ample parking, is via the main porch.
Located under the external stone staircase, with slate floor, solid timber door and wall light. It also houses the electrical panel within a recessed area.
Immediately one feels the character of Crug Bychan in this welcoming hall with exposed beams, quarry tile floor and plenty of space to remove outerwear for handy storage in the recessed closet. Doors lead to a bedroom, bathroom, and living areas.
Located away from the main living areas, this quiet, spacious double bedroom with pine floors, exposed beams and triple aspect deep-set windows with garden and sea views, also benefits from an en suite cloakroom.
Perfectly petite! With WC, vanity with hand basin and splash back tiles, painted stone walls, slit window and spotlight.
Cast iron, claw foot, deep bath, WC, antique hand basin set on bespoke vanity unit with tiled back splash, feature shelf in wall recess, integrated wall hooks, window to the garden, two spotlights and quarry tile floor.
Three slate steps from the main entrance hall take one into a majestic dining hall with high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and trusses with a wonderful antique wrought iron candelabra suspended from a central beam. Other features include painted stone walls, spotlights in ceiling beams, large multi-fuel burner on slate hearth, large built-in storage cupboard, two slit windows, tall paned window overlooking the courtyard, under stair space housing one of two hot water tanks.
Superb slate slabs underfoot were lifted to insert a damp-proofing/insulating membrane, then re-laid. The multi-purpose room is redolent with period features, full of charm and comfort, with areas to sit and relax in cosy armchairs by the blazing wood stove or enjoy dining in the grandeur of a room large enough to seat and entertain a crowd!
From the dining hall, a door leads to the bedroom and a bespoke staircase rises to a small galleried landing and the library/sitting room.
The dining hall is an L-shaped room opening into a bright, spacious area suitable for use as a study – with quarry tile floors, large window with deep sill, wall spotlight, recessed character display ‘nook’ in one wall and paned door with side windows providing access to the paths, patios and delightful gardens. A door leads to the scullery.
A charming single or small double room with dual aspect windows – one with sea views – painted stone walls, recessed feature nooks in the walls, painted sloping ceiling and painted floor.
A room that invites you to indulge in a little quiet time. Many hours have been spent here lost in a book, comfortable and warm in front of the glowing wood stove whilst the West Wales winds and seas roar outside! Vaulted ceilings, exposed stone walls, tongue and groove pine ceiling with exposed beams, wooden floor and multi-fuel stove on a solid slate plinth. A glass-paned door leads, via exterior stone steps, to the courtyard; two windows overlook the rear gardens, and a third window with a window seat, permits glorious views of sunsets out to sea.
A handy room that houses the Grant oil boiler, double stainless steel sink with left-hand drainer, built-in wall shelves, spot light, space for fridge/freezer, plus a wall of built-in hanging and shelved storage.
Bright, spacious and uncluttered with plenty of room to cook, dine, entertain or enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine by the Jotul stove. A large country-style kitchen filled with natural light, featuring brick walls framing birch lower level cupboards plus open slate shelves providing ample storage space, plus plenty of preparation space on the tiled work surface. Inset stainless steel, double bowl sink with mixer tap and drainer each side, tiled splash back, space for under-counter fridge and LPG cooker. Windows to the courtyard and the rear garden permit plenty of sunshine along with a panelled glass door leading to the patio/path and rear landscaped gardens. Reclaimed quarry tile floors, four pendant glass shaded lights with two spot lights and a built-in cupboard.
Timber door to the front courtyard and parking, quarry tiled floor with doors to the bathroom, bedroom and garden room.
Access doors from the inner hallway and bedroom alongside. Equipped with a panelled bath, part tiled walls, tiled surface with storage cupboard beneath, corner vanity with inset Twyford hand wash basin with tiled splash back and cupboard above, plus WC. Lighted airing cupboard housing the second hot water tank and a wall of slatted wooden shelves ideal for linens, towels and general storage. Quarry tile floors, wall light and vanity lights plus window overlooking the rear gardens.
A serene and comfortable room with plenty of space for a double or king size bed, wooden floors, coving to the ceiling, window overlooking the rear garden and mound, with doors to the en suite bathroom and inner hall.
A delightful garden room with the feel of an indoor sanctuary, filled with thriving jasmine climbers, a fruiting fig tree and pots of plants. A lovely place to sit and relax on warm days and long summer evenings. A patchwork floor of quarry tiles, slate and stone creates a unique design underfoot whilst the open ceiling with characterful original beams provides space and light. The walls are painted stone with recessed nooks and shelves providing space for decorative accessories. A window with an ancient wooden lintel overlooks the garden and an old timber door gives way to the courtyard. A second door leads to the south barn.
Formerly a milking parlour and suitable for conversion providing additional accommodation or the creation of a holiday let, this spacious area now houses a meticulously maintained log store as well as the filters and pumps for the purification of the bore hole water supply. Electric light and two water taps, one of which is connected to the old spring.
Outbuildings and Grounds
Over time the grounds – which include an area large enough for a paddock with the benefit of a stream running alongside – have been artfully landscaped. Included are lawned areas to sit, relax and enjoy the spectacular uninterrupted coastal views and spellbinding sunsets. There are particularly impressive views from the tumulus, Crug Bychan Round Barrow.
Stone-walled beds of perennials, herb borders and a vegetable plot as well as many trees, hedgerows and shrubs planted over the years, have resulted in several varied ‘feature’ areas to sit and enjoy seeing a plethora of wildlife.
A large shed (variously used in the past for storing hay, cars and a boat) is ideal for storage of garden and grounds equipment. A derelict stone piggery, measuring externally about 9.5m x 3.3m (31’ x 11’), provides further opportunity for creative use.
Mains electricity, private water (bore hole and spring), private drainage, oil central heating, LPG bottles for the cooker.

From Cardigan, take the B4548 along the Teifi Estuary to Gwbert. At Gwbert, follow the road round to the right by the Gwbert Hotel and up the hill, past the turning to the right to Cardigan Golf Club and past the turning to the left to Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park. After just over a mile from Gwbert, take the turning to the left, just after the Ferwig village sign.
Follow the no-through road for about 1 mile, past several properties and past a farm with duck ponds either side of the road, until you see ahead a gated entrance to Nant y Croi Farm (over a cattle grid). Turn left just before here and continue down the track and into the courtyard where you will find Crug Bychan immediately ahead of you.
