Bagwyllydiart Farm is a substantial two storey detached farmhouse with its origins in the 18th century. The property has been extended over recent years to provide good sized three bedroom accommodation with the benefit of full oil-fired central heating and double glazing. In addition to the principal property there is also a substantial stone built detached barn which offers excellent potential for development into further accommodation subject to the usual planning consents however it does appear to fulfil the general criteria for the development of rural properties.

The house and barns stand in substantial grounds as indicated on the attached plan providing excellent privacy and flexibility for a variety of uses.


Bagwyllydiart Farm occupies a most convenient rural location in a small hamlet. The property is surrounded by open countryside yet is very convenient to a number of local centres such as Hereford City (13 miles), Abergavenny (14 miles) and Monmouth and Ross-on-Wye (12 miles). The M50 motorway at Ross on Wye and the link to the M4 at Monmouth provide excellent national communications.

Local facilities are provided in nearby Pontrilas/Ewyas Harold which have an excellent range of facilities including doctors surgery, school, public house, restaurant, community centre, garage, shop, post office and small industrial estate.

Stoned driveway leads to a large hardstanding for parking, to the West of which are extensive lawned areas with mature trees fenced off from the principal pasture land.

The Barn:

The barn has an independent roadside vehicular access leading to hardstanding. It is constructed of stone under a pitched roof with sheeted covering. Internal measurements are approximately 20m x 5.8m. It therefore provides extensive potential accommodation for conversion and does appear to fulfil the criteria of being redundant from modern agriculture, in reasonable structural condition and worthy of retention. No planning enquiries have been made.

The Land:

The land is as identified on the attached plan, in various enclosures all of which are laid to pasture. There have been some previous arable crops however in recent years it has been grazing only. We understand there is one footpath on the Northern boundary, being the furthest point from the house. Independent roadside access is provided on both the Saddlebow road and the Orcop road. Water supplies exist in most enclosures. The current grazing agreement ends on 31st October, vacant possession is available thereafter.
In total the land extends to approximately 28 acres thus enabling a variety of uses, from its existing use as pasture to equestrian, horticulture, arable or planting woodland.
This land is not subject to a stewardship scheme.
Entitlements are not included in the sale.

Basic Farm Payment

The land is registered on the rural land register however Entitlements are not included in the sale.
