Mynachlogddu, Clynderwen


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 1
We present to market an unspoilt historic (around 200 yrs old) 1 bed (with crog loft currently used as a 2nd bedroom) traditional stone cottage with around 1.8 ACRES of pastureland situated in a very nice setting between Crymych and Mynachlogddu with superb far reaching views across the Pembrokeshire countryside.

Located just inside the Pembrokeshire National Park the property has an open plan kitchen/living room, bathroom, study/playroom, bedroom with a crog loft currently used as a second bedroom. Outside there is a very useful detached timber outbuilding with lots of possibilities (subject to any consents required), polytunnel, various other small outbuildings, lawned gardens and fenced paddock area.

Needing a little updating but perfectly livable this is a super blank canvas for a new buyer to come along and put their stamp on it and move it to another level.


Situated in a quiet position on a minor unmarked road linking the two villages of Crymych and Mynachlogddu. Crymych itself is just a 5 minute drive away which has plenty of shops, secondary school and a bus route to either Cardigan or Narberth.

The poet and writer JOHN SHARKEY 1936-2014 lived at this property.

The cottage sits to one side of a country lane and is accessed via a gated entrance leading to parking to one side of the cottage. The parking area also gives access to the study/office building to the land, which lies beyond the rear gardens.


To the front of the cottage there is a small courtyard area with views over open countryside, an ideal place to sit out and enjoy the environment.

To both sides of the cottage there are areas of open garden laid to grass, on one stands a timber garden shed.

The majority of the gardens lie to the rear, there is still a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees including soft fruit bushes. There is also a small pond in one corner and a small caravan. There is also a timber base for a yurt (no planning though for a yurt)

For the keen grower, the garden offers lots of potential to develop a lovely cottage garden.

In one corner of the garden stands the studio/office. This is a good sized building which measures approx 5.9m x 4.05m (19'4" x 13'3") internally. This building has been used for a variety of things previously including overflow accommodation, a studio and a dance studio!

The Land

The land is accessed from the parking area. There is a single enclosure of approximately 1.5 acres (around 1.8 acres including house and gardens) This is very gently sloping and has good stock-proof fencing. The land has been unused for some time and is beginning to revert to a wild meadow. With work it could be brought back to usable pasture if required.

Beyond the land, the Preseli Hills rise and provide excellent walking and riding. The whole area is dotted with standing stones, hut circles, cairns etc and of course, this is the area from which some of the stone for Stonehenge came.
