A truly charming farmstead (once serving the nearby de Winton Estate) which has been beautifully restored by the current owners since purchasing in 2001.

Glanhenwye would make a stunning family home, successful tourism business or provide flexible accommodation.

Situation - Situated approximately four miles from Hay on Wye in the beautiful Wye Valley on the northern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area renowned for its natural beauty.

The surrounding area offers excellent walks and outdoor activities to include canoeing, horse riding, rope centre and outdoor pursuits, which provide a constant stream of visitors to the holiday units themselves.

The surrounding towns and villages provide many excellent restaurants and pubs, particularly Hay on Wye itself noted for its second-hand bookshops and annual Hay Festival attracting visitors worldwide.

Description - The grade II listed farmhouse offers many features to include bay windows; traditional fireplaces can be found in the Drawing Room and Dining Room and there is a stunning farmhouse Kitchen to include a fitted Aga, solid wood block ash worktops, Belfast sink and larder cupboard.

A Rear Lobby has access to a Cellar, via stone steps through an attractive archway, housing the boiler and hot water system.

A separate Utility Room comprises extensive shelving and worktops making for a functional laundry space.

From the first floor landing is access into Bedroom 1 and the Master Bedroom, both with bay windows. The Master Bedroom comes complete with En-Suite Shower Room; Bedrooms 3 and 5 boast character fireplaces. There is a further Dressing Room with extensive shelving and En-Suite.

Outside, the property sits in a cobbled courtyard with ample parking and traditional stone buildings on two sides.

The grounds are a particular feature of Glanhenwye, which surround the property with original stone walls and provide a wonderful backdrop to many of the garden areas.

To the front are large laid lawns with ornamental shrubs and further gardens below ideal for a kitchen garden or recreational use.

Since 2004, the property has been run successfully as a holiday letting business. The property is offered with all three cottages fully equipped to be utilised as holiday cottages including furniture, kitchen equipment, bed linen etc (a few personal items are excluded).
