Cefnfarchen occupies a most private and tranquil rural setting enjoying a delightful aspect overlooking surrounding farmland, yet within a few miles of the A40, which provides an excellent road link to all the major towns of the area. Located on the border of Carmarthenshire and the coastal county of Pembrokeshire, Cefnfarchen lies within easy reach of the small
towns of Narberth and Whitland, which between them provide an excellent range of local services and amenities to cater for everyday requirements, whilst further afield are the larger county towns of Carmarthen and Haverfordwest. The superb scenery of the Pembrokeshire coastline is readily accessible with the coastal resorts of Saundersfoot and Tenby both being close at hand to the south. The setting of Cefnfarchen will appeal to
those potential purchasers seeking a character property with the benefits of its own land, enjoying a very pleasant aspect, but convenient to the road network and town amenities.
