A stunning five bedroom farmhouse in a truly magical location, set in approx. 19 acres of mainly wooded grounds, with a separate barn conversion and good range of useful outbuildings
Ffynnon Felin is steeped in history and believed to be around 250 years old. It has been comprehensively refurbished by the present owners in recent years and for part of the year it has been let on Airbnb as a luxury holiday home which has produced an excellent income. Additionally there is a bio-mass heating system and photo-voltaic solar panels which also produce additional income. The grounds are a particular feature of the property with beautiful landscaped gardens leading on to an extensive area of mature deciduous woodland.
The property is set close to the small village of Cwmbach, equidistant from St Clears and Whitland, which provide ranges of local amenities and access onto the A40, which provides a fast link to Carmarthen and the M4 to the east. Carmarthen offers a full range of shops and amenities.

Very helpful staff, returned calls promptly, kept us informed. Really pleased thanks!
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
We found Rural Scene very helpful and polite, they answered our queries promptly, always got back to us when they promised to. Very professional.
C..... and I could not have made a better decision than employ you to handle our sale. Quite apart from the sheer quality of the Sale Particulars, the number of viewers Rural Scene introduced, and the very high standard of service, we found the personal touch given by you and your office most reassuring....
I really wanted to write to you all at Rural Scene to thank you for the professional service you have given us over the years. Richard I would like to thank you personally for your support, I feel you went above and beyond to secure the sale, that we honestly thought would never happen, we appreciate all the effort you gave and the calmness you brought to those stressy situations. I know I can be difficult too, I have worked hard for everything in my life but I am always true to my word. It's some feat that C G had an offer for the full asking price with in a week of going on the market & completed in 2.5 months!
