Full description

Windy Hill Farm is a typical Pembrokeshire Longhouse, a property steeped in local history, and is blessed with the most amazing panoramic countryside views which stretch from Gelli, to Llawhaden, Llandewi Velfrey and as far as Milford Haven Power station on a clear day. But views are not the only attributes possessed by this property. It has the potential to become a source of income from converting the current outbuilding into holiday cottages for letting, a pre-planning application for which has already been submitted to the local council. It also benefits from a separate driveway accessing approximately 2.5 acres of land, which could be utilised for touring caravans, as it has previously, or even as potential "glamping holidays".

There is also the opportunity to purchase further land, with a workshop and a further conversion prospective for a holiday let cottage.

Windy Hill is only about 10 minutes drive away from the popular town of Narberth and the A40.

History - History of Windy Hill Farm, Penffordd, SA66 7HU
Windy Hill is a typical Pembrokeshire long house. It was originally part of extensive lands in the Bletherston Parish which were owned by John Colby. The Colby family, who moved to Pembrokeshire around the 16th century also bought lands and estates around Narberth, Manordeifi and Fishguard, including Colby Woodland Gardens. The exact date of the older part of the house is unknown, but believed to date from the late 16th, early 17th century.
The taller "extension" was added in the early 1800's and is shown on maps from 1840, together with a range of outbuildings which form part of the property. A land tax record from 1791 show that Windy Hill was tenanted by a Thomas Llewellin, with 15 acres of land. In 1843 the date was carved into the oak beam of the inglenook fireplace to commemorate the end of the Rebecca Riots. In 1920 the property was sold by Anne Harriet Colby and Cecil Spence-Colby with approximately 130 acres of farmland. During World War 2 a family of sisters from London were evacuated to live with relatives at Windy Hill. In 1988 the current owners purchased the dilapidated house, outbuildings and approximately 3 acres of field to begin restoration.
