Six Bedroom Rural Residence in need of refurbishment. Extensive Range of Traditional Stone Farm Buildings. Range of Modern Portal Frame Buildings. 132.72 acres of undulating pastureland. Far reaching views towards the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.


Brynsifiog Farm represents a traditional livestock farm situated in the Radnorshire countryside. The farm comprises a substantial six-bedroom rural residence, an impressive range of traditional stone buildings, a range of modern portal frame agricultural buildings and 132.72 acres of lush pastureland.

The original residence of Brynsifiog is reputed to be a former Court House for the Manor of Brynseviok with its history tracing back to the early 1600s. This building was subsequently replaced in 1878. There are also the remains of another smaller dwelling referred to as the Old House which is located in an adjacent field.


Brynsifiog is situated approximately 3 miles north of the quaint village of Glasbury-on-Wye and is only 6 miles from the famous and popular book town of Hay-on-Wye.

Glasbury is well serviced for a small village and has a Post Office, garage & filling station and three public houses and restaurants. The major facilities to include supermarket, range of shops, primary school and farmers cooperative can be found in Hay-on-Wye. Secondary education is provided in the nearby Gwernyfed High School.


Brynsifiog offers spacious accommodation throughout and has an abundance of period features to include open fireplaces high ceilings and exposed oak beams, cellar and dairy which still has its original flagstone flooring. The residence does require expenditure to bring it up to modern day living standards however it does provide a unique and exciting opportunity to be developed into a truly terrific and substantial residence.

The adjoining barn is also ripe for conversion, subject to planning, either as a separate residence or as an extension to the existing farmhouse.

It is clear to see that this property was originally a property of particular note, which is supported by the servants quarters on the second floor which would make an ideal office area or sixth bedroom.

On entering the property, you are greeted by a large and central hallway which then offers access to the main lounge and kitchen, with a staircase leading to the first-floor landing area and bedroom accommodation.

Brynsifiog has a beautiful range of traditional stone barns that immediately surround the main residence forming a central courtyard. Some of the buildings date back to a period older than the farmhouse which is supported by the engraved stone in the Wainhouse dated 1866. This is a superb building with its timber gateways, central pillars and stone archways.

The stables that adjoin the farmhouse is another well maintained and handsome building which is prime for conversion, particularly as it is two storey. All of the barns have been well maintained and offer a host of character features with their exposed cruck beams.

The Land

The farmland extends to a considerable 132.72 of pastureland that is south facing having the benefit of sunshine all day. The land is split into conveniently sized enclosures for the ease of management. The land is split into two main sections by a tarmacadam roadway that continues only to serve a neighbouring smallholding. The field boundaries and hedges are in good order and investment continues to be made on an annual basis.

Whilst the land is currently laid down to pasture it is easily capable of producing excellent yielding arable and fodder crops. There are also valuable clusters of native woodlands and water features at various locations on the farm which provide shelter for livestock and natural habitat for wildlife.

The land surrounds the main farmstead on all sides and provides some of the most terrific and far reaching views towards the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons.


The land lies between 200 metres and 300 metres above sea level and comprises a mix of undulating pasture with all enclosures capable of producing fodder crops.


Brynsifiog has the benefit of a natural private water supply plus natural tributaries that run though the farm.
