€1.16m guide price for 92ac ‘rare’ coastal farm

JJ Morris presents a “rare” opportunity to acquire a coastal farm extending to 92-acres and including a traditionally constructed 3-bedroom farmhouse, with a £1,000,000 guide price (circa €1.16m).

The property, at St. Brides, Marloes, Haverfordwest, also boasts a range of buildings in need of upgrading.

These include several traditionally constructed buildings that may well have the potential for conversion to residential use, on a parcel of land suitable for pasture and arable use.

The farmhouse, according to a spokesperson “does now require updating, has a wealth of character and offers purchasers the opportunity to put their own stamp on the present accommodation”.

The farmstead occupies a central position on the holding and is approached over a long unsurfaced track.

It comprises a detached dwelling that was originally constructed pre-1919 old traditional solid stone walls under a slate roof although it has been extended to the rear in more recent times, in rendered cavity block walls under a pitched slate roof.

The driveway leads into the farmstead and offers ample car parking and a turning area.

The residence offers the following accommodation: entrance porch, an entrance hall, a sitting room, a dining room, a kitchen, a shower and WC, two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom.

To the rear of the residence is a garage, whilst at the fore is a lawned area together with several domestic outbuildings.

Farm buildings

The farm buildings are “typical of a progressive farmstead development” and comprise a range of traditionally constructed buildings alongside modern portal frame livestock sheds etc, the spokesperson noted.

All are now in need of “significant improvement in order to realise their potential”, the spokesperson added.

The buildings can briefly be summarised as a former milking parlour of block walls under a corrugated asbestos roof, stone range under a combination of asbestos and slate roof, various open fronted sheds being of steel frame construction with various styles of cladding affording hay sheds, livestock sheds and general storage.

Meanwhile, the land comprises a parcel of land that is typical of the area being predominantly level in profile and having a reasonable depth of soil but is suitable for arable or grazing purposes.

The land is all conveniently located to the farmstead and is reasonably well-fenced and gated, although some areas will require improvement and is a block of early productive land.

The firm estimates that circa 80 acres are “clean”, with the remainder being coastal slope, lanes, and the farmstead. There is no single farm payment included within the sale.


The farm occupies a private setting that lies within easy reach of the coastal village of Dale, and also Marloes and St Ishmaels. Haverfordwest and Milford Haven also being within easy reach.

Approached on a compacted stone and earth driveway, the farmstead is located in the centre of the holding and includes the residence and the buildings.
