Cwm Tawel Lodge is a 2 / 3 bed house set in approx. 100 acres of land in the Gwili Valley just outside Carmarthen. The land consists of mainly broadleaved woodland, the majority being oak. Within the wood, there is also a disused reservoir, now drained providing open space but with the potential to at least partially refill if desired.
Within the land there are a number of natural springs and a watercourse providing plenty of water. This offers scope for generating hydro-electricity subject to consent.
The property also comes with a number of useful outbuildings including a large 80' x 40' barn which is ideal for business use. There is also loads of hardstanding suitable for lorries and equipment.
Access to the land is taken care of by a number of forest tracks. These are plenty big enough to provide vehicular access.
This property offers huge potential for a range of business activities. Whether for processing timber or providing a venue for paint balling or pony trekking, it is easy to get to, being under 4 miles to the centre of Carmarthen town with it's railway station and access to the A40 and on to the M4.

The property is approached from the A484 via electronically gated access with CC TV coverage. The gates open onto a granite stoned driveway which leads up to the house. To the front of the house there is lots of parking and turning room for plenty of vehicles.
Next to the house, there is an undercover barbecue area and also a fully fitted bar contained in a portable building.
The property comes with a range of outbuildings:
Close to the house is a wooden building built of oak sourced from the property. This is divided into:
Freezer Room measuring 3m x 2.35m (9'10 x 7'9)
Studio / Workroom measuring 4.75m x 3m (15'7 x 9'10)
Office measuring 3.6m x 3m
All have power and light.
Within the land there is a large 2 storey barn measuring approx. 24.4m x 12.2m (80' x 40'). This has large doors to allow vehicular access. Upstairs there is a large workshop area. The barn contains a wood milling machine and is powered by a new 11kW generator. These are both available to purchase by separate negotiation.
To the front of the barn there is lots of hard standing to provide parking and turning for lorries and equipment.
Across the road from the main gate of the property is a second world war pillbox and a small pump house, once owned by Welsh Water.
In all the property extends to approx. 100 acres. The majority of this is woodland, all broad leaved and most of that is oak. Some of the wood is steeply sloping. The wood offers a source of firewood but there is plenty which could be thinned to produce wood for building bespoke kitchens etc., if desired.
There are several access roads in the woodland allowing vehicles to get around.
There are also springs and water courses within the land. There is plenty of fast flowing water which would suit use for a small scale hydro-electric scheme to generate electricity or for a water source heat pump to provide heating for the house and buildings.
In the centre of the land is a disused reservoir once used to provide water to Carmarthen. This is now empty and has reverted to open grassland. However, if desired it might be possible to refill a portion of it to provide a lake.
The land is ideal for a wide range of leisure activities like paint balling, camping, pony trekking etc. etc. The land backs onto, at the very top end, the golf course and from front to back, the land extends for about a mile, with all the tracks on the land, this probably equates to several miles of tracks to explore / ride.
Across the road, the property also owns fishing rights on the River Gwili which has trout and salmon at the right times of year.
As well as a wood milling machine and 11kW generator, the owner also has the following for sale: a 5 ton Yanmar digger, a David Brown tractor.
Please note that a foot path crosses the land although this does not run close to the house.
