A Grade II Listed Former Mansion House and Care Home built in the 'Victorian Gothic' Style dating from 1864
• Site extending to Approximately 0.93 Hectares (2.3 Acres)
• Potential for Redevelopment subject to all necessary consents



The Coomb overlooks a wooded valley known as 'Cwm Isaf' with elevated views across to Carmarthen Bay. The site is situated in attractive countryside within a rural area of South Carmarthenshire in South Wales. The Coomb is 5 miles from the County town of Carmarthen, 34 miles from Swansea and 73 miles from Cardiff. The A40/A48 provides a link to the M4. Carmarthen boasts a Mainline Rail Station and there are airports at Cardiff and Pembrey.
From Carmarthen take the A40 west towards St Clears.
After approximately 3.5 miles turn left off the dual carriageway signposted 'Llangynog' and 'Coomb Cheshire Home'. Follow the signs to The Coomb through Llangynog and after 1.5 miles, the driveway to The Coomb will be found on the left hand side.


The Mansion was built in 1864, incorporating part of an original house dating from 1728. The interior, including the staircase and gallery, was re-modelled in 1920-21 by 'Trollope and Colls' whilst in the ownership of Lord Kylsant. The property was used as an orphanage and children's home from 1940 before being purchased by the Leonard Cheshire Charity for use as a residential nursing/care home until 2009. The Mansion comprises a Grade II Listed building, built in the Victorian Gothic style with original features intact, such as marble fireplaces, oak panelling, ornate plaster ceilings, a central lantern topped staircase hall, stone floors, carved columns, vaulted cellars, a tower and an octagonal billiard room. The building is constructed of limestone and rock faced squared rubble stone, sandstone lintels and sills, limestone arched doorways and mullions, under a slate roof with stone corbels to iron gutters. The Mansion is situated on a site extending to approximately 0.93 hectares (2.3 acres).
