The Land

The farmland extends to a considerable 42.50 acres of pastureland including an area of coniferous woodland that is currently being harvested and will be replanted with a native deciduous variety. There is also a further block of 17 acres which adjoins the property and is available by separate negotiation. The land is split into conveniently sized enclosures for the ease of management control.

The field boundaries and hedges are in good order having benefited from continued investment on an annual basis. Apart from the woodland, the land is currently laid down to pasture but would easily be capable of producing an excellent yielding arable and fodder crop.

Cwmdaunant benefits from valuable clusters of native trees, woodlands and water features at various locations on the farm which provides shelter for livestock and natural habitats for wildlife. The land offers some of the most terrific and far reaching views towards the Begwyns and notably the well-known landmark feature known as the Roundabout. With its gently sloping pastures it is easily accessed and traversable with vehicles and also provides good access onto the neighbouring Tregoyd Common.
