The Property

Tai Hirion is a secluded six-acre property, set back from a minor country road in the north Ceredigion coastal zone of west Wales. It is strategically located between the county’s famous beaches, the wildness of the Cambrian Mountains and the university towns of Aberystwyth and Lampeter. Aberystwyth is also the home of the National Library of Wales. Local facilities and good schools are close at hand. This three-bedroom property has great potential for upgrading, remodelling and extension, and for adaptation to a range of leisure and even commercial activities. The core of the building was a 19th-century smithy, with two wings added more recently. Externally there is a large yard, extensive gardens to the back, side and rear, two small paddocks, a small stable and a double garage currently adapted for use as an artist’s studio. Plus there is a separate one-acre field. Total land around the house is about two acres. There is mains electricity and water, modern oil-fired central heating and private drainage. Council Tax Band E. Access to the road runs along a short section of council-maintained bridleway, with a well-established right of way. The property’s direct access to a network of bridleways and forest tracks would suit a variety of equestrian uses. A further two fields of rough pasture, totalling just under four acres, lie approximately 15 mins walk along the bridleway. This second site has high landscape and amenity value, with a mature shelterbelt and a valley rolling down to a long stream border. There are lovely views, both within the valley and longer-distance across Cardigan Bay towards the Llyn peninsula and Bardsey Island. If you are looking to own a piece of land that is genuinely good for the soul, this could be it. This property could be a retirement project, a secluded retreat or a spacious family home. Both sites offer distant sea views, with sometimes spectacular sunsets, and lots of wildlife, especially birds.
