DATING back to 1887, a detached smallholding occupying a most tranquil and rural setting in Betws Gwerfil Goch will be up for auction next month.

Jones Peckover is delighted to offer up for auction Tyddyn, a rural three-bedroom property in a private and picturesque setting.

In need of renovation, this versatile smallholding will be offered for sale by public auction at the Brookhouse Mill, in Denbigh, on Wednesday, July 4.

This auction will start at 6.30pm.

The cottage is in need of restoration and currently provides three reception rooms and three bedrooms yet retains a wealth of character with slate slabbed flooring, original fireplaces and beamed ceilings.

A useful range of traditional stone outbuildings sits a short distance away and provides great versatility of use.

The land adjoins the property and comprises a mix of level and undulating paddocks contained within three enclosures and benefiting from gated access.

With an impressive original fireplace of stone with a heavy timber mantle housing a multi0fuel stove which services the heating and domestic hot water, the living room can also boast a uPVC window to the front and rear, ceiling beams and access through to the sitting room.

Outside, gated access from the council-maintained road leads to the track approaching the property and gives access to a level and slightly undulating paddock.

Two further sloping grass paddocks lie to the front of the property and benefit from gated access.

In all, the property amounts to 7.09 acres.
