THE LAND The farm has a wonderful contrast of land with four good fields at the bottom measuring 2 and 6 acres providing grazing, area for mowing, possible cultivation, etc. These are most conveniently located to the farmhouse, being either side of the farmyard and a short distance up the road. At the far end of one is an attractive area of woodland of about an acre with some mature trees including oak, ash and some softwoods. Above this and running to the north of the property are three further fields which rise quite steeply to the hill above. Although capable of being tended carefully with a four wheel drive tractor, these provide valuable winter and summer grazing and the views from the top are spectacular from the Black Mountains around to the Brecon Beacons and over the lake below.

LLANDEILO HILL To the west and north of the farm is a large expanse of common land known as Llandeilo Hill which has some spectacular scenery, including some ancient remains believed to date back to the Bronze age. This provides wonderful riding and walking country and Hill Grazing Rights exist for approximately 100 ewes which provides useful grazing as well as additional benefits for Single Farm Payment purposes.

SCHEDULE OF ACREAGES See full details.

WATER Private water supply which rises on the hill to the west. There are also two mains water tanks from Llanbwchllyn Pool which provides free water to the enclosures. In addition, the farm is bisected by the stream which runs dry occasionally in the summer, but provides a wonderful facility throughout most of the year.
