    Default Welsh Mansion/Farm. 2018


    Found this place on maps, was expecting it to just been the shell.. the house had 3 floor but you could only explore the ground floor as it was super dangerous!

    info- Following the death of Colonel Cecil Lyne, the house was sold by auction in 1979. The particulars advised: In addition to its obvious attractions as a private residence the property could conceivably have potential for many other uses most particularly in the catering trade.
    On three floors, the accommodation comprised:-

    GROUND FLOOR: entrance hall, study, lounge, dining room, kitchen, butler's pantry, store room/boot room, pantry, cloakroom, rear hall with access to cellar, main and secondary staircases
    FIRST FLOOR: six bedrooms, boxroom, landing, rear landing, bathroom and separate WC
    TOP FLOOR: self contained flat with two bedrooms, bathroom, sitting room and kitchen.

    Outside:-
    3 acres of mature gardens, 3 acres of rough paddocks and 13 acres of agricultural land, double garage, garden shed, fuel store, wood shed, WC and a range of stabling with four loose boxes, harness room and feed house.

    The property was purchased by Janet Hughes who at that time had been running the Copper Kettle in the heart of a South Wales village. The house/farm now became a very successful bed and breakfast business. Janet told us, "When I bought the house it was in imaculate condition. All the wood was pitch pine from Canada."

    The wood used in this place was Canadian Pitch Pine which has a lovely grain going through it, a pity we see the house in this condition as it must have been a nice house at one time.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    There's no rule on site names, it's entirely up to you what you call your posts.
