Full description

Makeurmove are very pleased to offer for sale Llancayo Orchard, which is a 1.5 acre wildlife haven on the lands of Llancayo house.

Viewings are strongly recommended to give a full picture of the Orchard's scale and potential.

The Orchard - Llancayo Orchard is a 1.5 acre wildlife haven, untouched since 1957. It is surrounded on 3 sides by grade II listed stone walls, believed to have been constructed by Napoleonic prisoners of war, who were based in a nearby camp, using local stone from the banks of the river Usk. The South side includes a tall native hedge and stock fencing.

The orchard still yields fruit. In Georgian times it was the main source of fruit and vegetables for the owner of Llancayo House. Specimen trees existed including Bleinheim Orange, wine fruit varieties including Perry (pear wine) trees, and russet varieties including the Adams Pearmain variety. We've still got damson, plum and apple trees, a rare variety "Gladstone" apple tree which has over a 6 foot girth, and an perry pear tree 'Orange Pippin'.

Perry wine would have been made using the cider press that is now in the spinney next to the large pond of Llancayo House. The Marcher Apple Orchard network also identified the orchard as having one of the oldest espalier trees they'd ever seen. Russet and White Transparent apple tree varieties are still present in the orchard.

The orchard produced honey; the flavour was sublime and from the many lime trees in the grounds of the house, and bramble flowers. Due to the non-intensively grown nature of the produce from the orchard, without the use of pesticides, ever, any produce sold to the public could be legitimately described as organic.
