Ffynnon Grog, near Mwnt, Ceredigion

Run a ready-made business and live with your very own dream coastal views in this farmhouse with four holiday lets and planning permission for more

In estate agent speak, when you hear the phrase ‘this place has potential’ it normally means there’s plenty to do inside and out to get the property up to scratch. 

But in this case, the hard work is already done and the ‘potential’ is to earn money while enjoying the coastal sunsets you’ve always dreamed of. 

Ffynnon Grog sits perched above Cardigan Bay. It has panoramic sea views and is a short walk away from the beautiful village of Mwnt and its idyllic beach. 

But best of all there’s the chance to earn an income from the property, as in addition to the main house are four holiday lets – most of which also enjoy fine sea views. 

There’s also planning permission to build three more holiday cottages from existing stone outbuildings, and one of the fields has a Caravan Club licence for five tourers. 

The main farmhouse itself was originally built as an extension to the main house in the 19th century, but soon became the main residence in its own right. 

Today, it has a modern kitchen and a spacious dining area with Victorian cast iron fireplace and French doors leading to a conservatory with sea views. The living room has a picture window with coastal views, plus wood-burning stove, and there are two large bedrooms plus an attic room. 

Meanwhile, Bay Cottage used to be the main house and is now a holiday let with three bedrooms. It has plenty of character throughout with beams, original wood floors and an open plan family room and kitchen, with a large inglenook fireplace. There’s also a patio and a private garden. 

Rosemary and Thyme cottages (three bedrooms and one bedroom respectively) are both barn conversions and are adjoined. They have exposed stone walls and beams, and Rosemary Cottage has its own private garden with sea views. 

Finally there’s Seascape Cottage – a refurbished bungalow with a large, elevated private garden, which also has panoramic views over Cardigan Bay. 

There are almost 20 acres of land with numerous paddocks, one of which has a small pond and a spring. There’s also a small orchard along with the outbuildings from which planning consent has been given to build three new holiday cottages. 

The property is on a fairly remote section of the Welsh coast – that’s part of the appeal – though the historical town of Cardigan is just a few minutes’ drive away and Aberystwyth and Carmarthen are both within reach. 

Since 1990, Ffynnon Grog has been running as a tourism enterprise and, with the additional planning consent, there’s now the chance to grow the business while living a coastal lifestyle with open space, great beaches and sunsets galore.
