If you have ever considered taking up the Good Life and running your own home farm, this £1m barn conversion with 17 acres of land is the perfect base.

With views of the Llawhaden Castle remains, The Old Barn in the Vale of the Eastern Cleddau retains plenty of rustic features and comes with a guest cottage.

The Talybot Farm barn didn’t become a house until recent years, serving as a barn for the 17 acres of fields that accompany it, but has been converted into an incredible family home.

Llawhaden Castle, which provides the backdrop for the property, was built by the bishops of the Diocese of St David in the 13th century.

As well as the castle, the converted barn offers fantastic views of the rolling Pembrokeshire fields and hills that surround it, and borders the beautiful Cleddau River.

The Old Barn comprises of four/five bedrooms set over two floors with two reception rooms and a large kitchen diner.

With exposed A-frame timber beams throughout the house, the lounge and entrance also offer double-height ceilings, enhancing the rustic feel of the property.

In addition to the main house there is a fully self-contained one-bedroom cottage to the side of the main property.

There is also a collection of agricultural barns, sheds and stables surrounding the house, which could be used to assist with the upkeep of the 17 acres of fields that come with the Old Barn.

The land offers the flexibility to rear animals or grow crops, allowing the owner to become self-sustainable.

The house is being marketed by Country Living Group, who are listing the property at a price of £1m.

James Skudder of Country Living Group said: “Talybont Farm is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Pembrokeshire and enjoys a stunning backdrop of Llawhaden Castle.

“If you are looking for rural seclusion coupled with a taste of the good life then this opportunity is not to be missed.

“There is huge potential to utilise not only the well maintained land and the very useful outbuildings, but the rental income generated by the separate cottage is a fantastic selling addition to the entire set up.”
