Full Details

From our Oswestry office proceed out of the town towards Llangollen and Wrexham. On reaching the Gledrid roundabout continue towards Wrexham until reaching the next roundabout. At the roundabout take the first left and follow the road down the hill following the signposts for LLangollen. Continue along this road passing through Froncysyllte and proceed into the town. At the traffic lights turn right into the main street and follow the road down to the T junction. At the T junction turn right and then first left onto Dinbren Hill. Follow this road up and around to the left passing Dinas Bran school on your right. Follow the lane along and bear around to the right. Follow this road along for approximately 1 mile and bear to the right again opposite Dinbren Hall. Follow this lane for approximately 100 metres where the track up to Brynhyfryd will be found and can be identified as being opposite Galedfryn Cottages and by our pointer boards. Continue up the track where Brynhyfryd will be found on the left hand side.

About The Area
Brynhyfryd, translates from Welsh as Beautiful Hill, and is certainly true - arguably one of the most spectacular locations in Llangollen - nestled 1.8 miles (just 7 min drive) from the pretty town itself, the registered small holding of 6.65 acres (estimated), has stunning views across the valley, castle Dinas Bran - and the property fields overlook the Berwyn mountains, river Dee, chain bridge and Berwyn steam railway.

Location/Land - Sunny, amazing views from fields with direct access to walks, inc the Clwydian Way footpath that runs directly behind the property and above Valley Crucis Abbey. Dinas Bran school is just down Dinbren road, where there is also a good public gym.

Briefly the property is quietly set back from any main roads - up an unsurfaced farm driveway - consisting of a traditional detached period house together with outbuildings. Substantial and gorgeous barns with all the exposed timbers and a single storey holiday cottage/annexe with views across the fields. With separate access to the annexe and also potentially to the barn, if the property were to be developed to take advantage of the business potential, access for guests could be kept separate to the main house providing privacy.

The property is a registered small-holding and offers the buyer a fantastic opportunity to grow their own produce and keep livestock and would be great for those wanting to be self-sufficient. The property is also perfectly suited to those looking for the equestrian lifestyle with well situated, well drained land and potential for stabling.

The main house. Traditional detached period house, stone beneath a slate roof, with internally some of the timbers and oak panelling suggest some parts could be as old as 16 century, but certainly 17 century onwards. The house has lots of exposed beams providing lots of character, very large open fireplace to the sitting room, and stove to the dining room. Floors are a mix of timber and old slate. Four bedrooms, the master with Juliet balcony with views over the front gardens, fields and far hillside stretching out all around - has a distinct romance about it.

The property has registered title of small holding.
