A rare, historic Welsh Marches estate is up for sale
The glorious, rolling countryside surrounding the Montgomeryshire town of Llanfyllin is as beautiful as anywhere in the UK, and completely unspoilt. Which makes Bodfach Hall, a grade II listed mansion set in 83 acres, a great purchase for anyone wanting a life of luxury far from the madding crowd.
Formerly run as a luxury hotel, this incredible property could also be reverted to a commercial venture again.
Dating back to the 13th century, Bodfach Hall is now predominantly Georgian with Victorian editions and consists of a main house, as well as two cottages and a large coach house.
In total there are 13 bedrooms and eight bathrooms, as well as several receptions rooms with ornate period features, including decorative plaster work, arches, an Italianate classical-style entrance hall, large fireplaces and polished oak and tiled floors. Many of the windows also have fine etched-glass insets.
Outside is equally substantial with garaging, various outbuildings, formal and informal gardens, an orchard, woodland and paddocks. The property even has its own natural water features with a lake and river with full fishing rights. Plus, for those quintessential leather-on-willow moments, there’s a former cricket pitch, which could be returned to its former glory, complete with cricket pavilion.
“Very rarely does a property with so much quality and history come to the market,” says Mark Wiggin of Mark Wiggin Estate Agents, based in Ludlow, Shropshire. “Bodfach is steeped in history and enjoys a stunning rural location. Internally there are a wonderful range of beautiful reception rooms, and together with the outstanding coach house, gardens, lake, river, parkland and woodland, offers a potential purchaser a unique opportunity to acquire the perfect small country estate”.
Bodfach Hall is on the market at a guide price of £2.65m. For more information, visit: www.markwiggin.co.uk
