Pentredwr, Llangollen

Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
A rare opportunity to purchase an established livestock farm situated in the picturesque Horseshoe Pass just outside the popular town of Llangollen.

Bwlch Mawr is comprised of a substantial 5 bedroom farmhouse, a range of modern and traditional farm buildings standing in 81.82 acres (33.11 ha) or thereabouts of mainly grassland and woodland, together with associated hill grazing rights.

The farm has been owned by the same family since the 1950's, with the land and buildings being substantially improved in that time. The farmhouse itself now requires a a scheme of modernisation but has the potential to create an excellent family home with outstanding views towards the Vale of Llangollen.

The farm offers a host of future agricultural, residential and equine uses, with the large range of redundant stone built farm buildings offering further development potential.


Bwlch Mawr is situated within the Horseshoe Pass, a mountain pass which separates Llantysilio Mountain from Maesyrychen Mountain. The nearby village of Pentredwr has a Community Centre located in the old primary school, however a larger range of shops, schools and amenities can be found in the nearby town of Llangollen (3 miles).

Llangollen is a historic market town situated on the banks of the river Dee. Internationally renowned for its annual Eisteddfod, Llangollen also offers a wide range of day to day facilities; good schools, a new health centre and a wide range of shops including greengrocers, butchers and bakers and numerous small boutiques. There are several hotels and a good range of cafes, bars and restaurants.

The area is also well known for outdoor pursuits such as kayaking, fishing, horse riding and hiking in the surrounding Berwyn Mountains or nearby Snowdonia National Park.
