Exciting development opportunity with a stunning collection of grade II listed barns, old farmhouse shell and renovated cottage set in about 18 acres in an idyllic part of Pembrokeshire.

About this property

  • Pentre Farm offers an exciting opportunity to purchase an historical collection of stunning grade II listed stone barns and explore a variety of potential residential/leisure/commercial uses (stp – subject planning) to both bring them back to life and safeguard their future. The barns are described in their listing as

    “Unusually grand and complete complex of nineteenth century farm buildings which retains its group character.”
    The agricultural stone barns include old livestock housing, old cartsheds, stables, feed stores etc and retain a wealth of character features to admire, treasure and preserve. We understand that the barns have had planning for a residential scheme of eleven dwellings (plus the farmhouse and cottage making thirteen dwellings in total) in the past and on a separate occasion, planning for a luxury hotel complex with thirteen holiday lodges, bar, restaurant, function rooms, suites, swimming pool, gym and spa treatment rooms. These consents have lapsed but do show how positively the planning authority viewed the potential of the site to serve such schemes.

    The property also includes the old original farmhouse that is a complete renovation and refurbishment project but offers extensive accommodation space. Adjacent is Pentre Farm Cottage that is the first successful renovation and refurbishment on the site. This now provides excellent living accommodation and a base for new owners taking on the rest of the farm. The property extends to about 18 acres (stms – subject to measured survey) and includes two large pasturefields, landscaped gardens and pockets of mature trees.

    Courtyard farm barns
    The impressive collection of grade II listed traditional stone barns and outbuildings include old coach houses, cowhouses, stables, feed stores and a dovecote. The majority of these encircle the old traditional courtyard that has the old pumphouse with weighbridge scales at its centre with its striking pyramid shape roof. There is also a useful modern general purpose open span building set away from the stone barns.

    Pentre Farmhouse
    Attached to the rear of Pentre Farm Cottage is Pentre Farmhouse that is in need of full renovation but offers extensive accommodation space together with character salting room and smoke house.

    Pentre Farm Cottage
    This handsome grade II listed cottage was renovated by the owner in 2012 and re-roofed and repointed in 2016. It now provides a comfortable base on the courtyard for new owners to use while exploring the various potential projects with the adjacent courtyard. The cottage has been sympathetically renovated and refurbished retaining all of its character features and blending in modern touches and comforts. The property offers a living room and dining room with the warm focal point of a double sided wood burning stove heating both rooms. Off the dining room is a modern kitchen with integrated appliances and a separate utility room with shower room off. A useful mezzanine area runs above the kitchen that could be used as extra living accommodation. Three generous size bedrooms can be found on the first floor that have the use of a family bathroom.

    The Land
    The property extends to about 18 acres (stms) and includes its own driveway (neighbouring properties have a right of way over part of it) barn courtyard, landscaped gardens, grounds, two large pasturefields (one with road access, that has the potential to provide another means of access to the courtyard and pockets of woodland.

I love the sense of history in these stunning barns and the craftwork building them is something to admire.
