5 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Ffawyddog, Crickhowell

3 5 1

A substantial farmhouse with much potential located in a rural, although not isolated, position with the most spectacular views. In addition to the main house is the potential for a self-contained annexe, extensive outbuildings all set in circa 8.7 acres.

Pen-Croeslan Uchaf is a fine example of a substantial stone farmhouse believed to date from the late 18th/early 19th century and is thought to have once formed part of the Estate of the Duke of Beaufort. The front of the farmhouse is classic Georgian style, double-fronted with the rear of the house retaining features which would perhaps indicate a pre-Georgian dwelling. The present owners have made improvements to the house, the grounds and outbuildings in recent years and there is further opportunity for the next owner to continue the works to restore this historic property to its former splendour. The house offers much character with exposed timbers, original fireplaces and floors. Enter through the entrance porch into the entrance hall with access to the principal reception rooms and door to the cellar. In typical Georgian style, to the front are two reception rooms situated either side of the entrance hall, both with original features. Continue along the entrance hall, to what is believed to be the original part of the house, to the dining room, a room with much character and door to a small study. The study may have, in the days when the property was a substantial working estate, been the room used to pay the farm workers. Continue through to the kitchen/breakfast room with vaulted ceiling, double doors to an enclosed courtyard and solid fuel Rayburn. The potential annexe can be accessed across the courtyard. A door to the rear of the kitchen/breakfast room leads to a boot room, utility room and walk-in pantry/cold store. First Floor From the entrance hall is the staircase rising to the first floor; at half landing level is a spacious bedroom. Continue to the first floor where 4 further bedrooms and a bathroom are situated. The two front bedrooms have the most spectacular views towards open countryside. The principal rooms are of generous proportions and the house alone, without the outbuildings and potential annexe, offers spacious family accommodation. To one side of the house, accessed separately, is the potential for a self-contained annexe. This part of the building was believed to have been used in the 1980’s as accommodation when a previous owner ran a small scale activity centre.

From Crickhowell town centre, continue through the town with The Bear Hotel on the right hand side. Go over the pedestrian crossing and take the left hand turning opposite the Petrol Station into New Road. Continue through the traffic lights and over the stone bridge, turning left and immediately right following signs for Llangattock. Continue into the village of Llangattock and turn right at the Horseshoe Inn into Church Road. Upon reaching the church, bear left passing the Old Rectory Country Hotel and Golf Club and continue up the hill and over the canal bridge. Follow the lane passing a ‘no entry’ lane to the left. Continue along this lane passing a right hand turn and a sign for ‘Pay Phone’ to the left, continue up the hill until the road levels out. Take the left hand fork in the road and the property can be found on the left hand side. The house is 2 miles from the Old Rectory. DO NOT USE SAT NAV.

Step Outside

Approached off a country lane, pass a pair of cottages and a barn on the right and side and enter the double gates leading to the driveway/yard with ample space for vehicles. There is an extensive range of outbuildings including stables and barns. The house and attached barns form an ‘L’ shape and could, subject to any necessary consents, be altered to incorporate some of the barns into the main house, or alternatively, the outbuildings could provide holiday accommodation or an annexe. Set in circa 8.7 acres including a garden and fenced paddocks. The present owners have improved paddocks and outbuildings for equestrian use. A paragraph in a sales brochure does not do justice to the extensive outbuildings, potential or the grounds. The views from the front and side of the grounds are spectacular.


Located within the Brecon Beacons National Park above the pretty village of Llangattock, and some 3.5 miles the historic town of Crickhowell. Llangattock has a public house, hotel/golf club and an historic Church.

Further amenities can be found in Crickhowell which offers a range of individual shops, doctors and dentist surgeries and Places of Worship.
