A very attractive 10-acre off-grid smallholding in South Wales, home of Llandyfan Camping and Fishing (excellent Google reviews!)
NB: Planning Application for third bedroom
The charming welsh cottage has 2 bedrooms (planning applied for 3rd) and a bathroom upstairs, downstairs is a large kitchen/diner with the extension providing a large lounge and downstairs cloakroom
A solid fuel Rayburn provides underfloor heating and hot water.
There is a static caravan in excellent condition that provides more accommodation if needed.
Cooking is run by LPG as well as a gas fire in the lounge.
The property has its own water supply and sewage disposal.
Electricity is generated from wind, solar and back up generator which runs lighting, TV, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher; the campsite and all the machinery in the large two-storey workshop (60 ft x 18 ft) used for engineering on the ground floor and carpentry on the first floor.
In addition to the 2-storey workshop there is a large barn 60 ft by 26 ft, currently used for machinery storage, with a large lean-to connected to it.
Outside there is an inspection pit for working on vehicles.
There is a one acre lake stocked with carp, bream, tench, perch and golden rudd.
A high tech 6-camera CCTV system is installed which provides excellent security to the whole 10 acres. All the cameras are pan/tilt and zoom.
This property has very low overheads with council tax, fuel, telephone, broadband etc costing just over £2000 per year (no, I haven’t missed out a zero!)
The 10 acres includes:
1-acre course fishing lake
2-acre camping field with twin shower block
small wooded area
area with 3 poly tunnels (currently rented out which provides regular monthly income)
There are 10 seasonal pitches providing monthly income all year and since September 2017 LLandyfan Camping & Fishing (see Google reviews) is listed with the Camping and Caravan Club to further expand this thriving business.
This lovely 2-bedroom Welsh cottage is fully double-glazed with a multi-fuel Rayburn cooker (burning wood) supplying underfloor heating & domestic hot water.

The smallholding is 100% off-grid using wind, solar panels and back-up generator to supply electricity. It has its own water supply and sewerage.
Overheads are very low with the council tax around £1000 per year, plus approx £1000 per year for diesel fuel for generator and mower etc.
A high quality CCTV is installed with 6 cameras.
Please note the EPC doesn’t fully reflect the property due to the constraints of the licenced EPC software (as noted by the assessor).
I have developed the whole property over the last 20 years. It is now ready for someone to earn a very good income with a beautiful place to live. It’s time for me to have a rest and retire.
For more information see tabs above (postcode is under ‘Address’) or contact me direct using telephone number or contact form below
There is a lot more to know about the property which I will be happy to discuss over the phone!
