About the Property

This stunning detached house is a true gem waiting to be discovered. Dating back to the 1830s, this original Welsh cottage has been tastefully extended in 2000 to offer a perfect blend of historic charm and modern comfort.

Boasting 2 reception rooms, 5 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms, this property provides ample space for a growing family or those who love to entertain. The large garage/workshop and parking for 4 vehicles ensure that practicality is not compromised.

One of the standout features of this property is the panoramic views it offers. From the Preseli Mountains to Pen Dinas Head, and even glimpses of the sea in the distance, the scenery is truly breathtaking. Imagine waking up to glorious sunrises and rugged views all year round from the comfort of your own home.

Steeped in history, this property has even had its moment in the spotlight, being featured on S4C’s “04 Wal” in 2002 and nominated for Building Control Awards in 2005. The detached double garage with living space potential and the 1.28 acres of grounds, including a paddock to the rear, offer endless possibilities for the new owners.

Blaenffos is a semi-rural village found between Cardigan and Crymych, with a village shop. Crymych is a short drive away and offers larger amenities and charming village shops, a Welsh 3yrs -18yrs school, vets and pubs/cafes. The popular market town of Cardigan is only 7.5 miles away and sits on the estuary of the river Teifi with its rich heritage and many shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, leisure centres, schools and cultural events. It is also only a short drive away from the sandy dunes of Poppit Sands and Newport beach, and the many other beaches and walks in and around Cardigan Bay.

Entry to the property is from the rear, down a few steps onto a decked area which leads to a door into the lounge. The moment you step into this room the panoramic views captivate you.

Property Details

Please read our Location Guides on our website for more information on what this area has to offer.

Details continued:

Built using locally sourced oak beams, vaulted ceilings with Glulam beams. A mixture of light oak UPVC double glazed windows/doors with toughened glass (October 2023 ) and hardwood sliding sash handmade windows. Handmade pitch pine framed, ledged and braced doors and skirtings and light oak flooring. This room is the perfect space to relax and unwind after a busy day and just get lost in the views. The sliding patio doors open out onto a decked patio with glass balustrades and steps down to the front of the property. From the lounge steps lead down to the hallway, with black quartz granite floor throughout all corridors, stairs up to the first upstairs section (where the spacious master bedroom (bedroom 5) is found with a feature glass wall, windows looking out to the rear, a door into a wardrobe, and an en-suite with shower, toilet and wash hand basin), doors lead to two bedrooms, the family bathroom, a useful cupboard, and steps lead down to another part of the hallway, with a door out to the front of the property, a floor length window in a corner, and a step up into the kitchen.

The two bedrooms are both doubles and have windows looking out to the rear and side of the property. The family bathroom has a jet bath with wooden surround, wash hand vanity unit, toilet and a double shower, and the walls are tiled in travertine limestone. The kitchen has matching fitted wall and base units, built in dishwasher, space for an American fridge/freezer, a Kenwood 5 ring gas cooker, stainless steel circular sink and drainer, larder cupboards, space for a breakfast table, and patio doors out to the side patio. A door leads into the utility room and a stable door leads into the original cottage sitting/dining room.

Details Continued:

The utility room has fitted units, circular sink and drainer, space and plumbing for a washing machine, and the oil-fired combi boiler which services the hot water and central heating.

The sitting/dining room is found in the original cottage, with wooden flooring, exposed wooden beams, painted exposed stone walls, the original inglenook fireplace now housing the dining area and reading nook, windows to the front, gas fire sitting on an elevated slate hearth with wooden beam over, and stairs up to the second upstairs area. Up here two double bedrooms (bedrooms 3 & 4) are found, with built in storage, making this a lovely space for guests.

The detached double garage has been built with modern living in mind, being cavity wall built, lending itself well to being converted into a granny annex or additional family member accommodation (subject to planning permission). To one side is the double garage, with an electrically operated Hormann remote control garage door and a door into the workshop. Then, double doors lead into another room which is currently use for storage but could easily be a living room/home office etc, fitted with wall and base units and having some plumbing already installed behind the units. There are stairs up to the first floor, where off the landing are two rooms, one used for storage and the other used as a games room, and a bathroom, with a bath, shower, toilet and sink.


The property is accessed off the main A478 from Cardigan to Crymych onto a gravelled driveway, with one parking space to the front, with gated access to the front of the property and steps leading up to the glass fronted decking. The drive continues up past the house to the rear where there is more parking space and up to the detached double garage. The rear garden is a pretty mix of lawn and mature trees and hedging with various shrubs. Steps lead down to the rear decking area, and another set of steps lead down to the other side and on round to the side of the property and on to the front, passing the oil tank.

From the rear garden a gate leads into the paddock behind the garage. This space is currently left as a paddock but offers a multitude of uses. There is ample space for growing your own veg, a polytunnel, keeping poultry and small animals. The possibilities are endless. The views from the top of the paddock are breathtaking, looking across most of the Preseli mountain range, and on to Pen Dinas Head, and the coast at Fishguard. There are various walks available across the hills to the rear of the paddock too.

If you are looking for a characterful home with a perfect mix of old-world charm and modern amenities, this Welsh cottage in Blaenffos is the ideal choice. Don't miss the opportunity to own a piece of history with this unique property.
