This week’s featured property is a 14th century farmhouse adjoining the Loughor Estuary. The estuary separates the south coast of Carmarthenshire from the north coast of the Gower Peninsula. The farm has been in the ownership of its’ current owners for four generations, who are retiring.
The business was started in 1941 by William John Stevens “Jack Llannant” and then was taken over by his son Mansel. The farm has always had Dairy cattle, milking out of a very old stone cow shed as pictured below:
The farm is located in close proximity to the town of Gorseinon and about 8 miles from the city of Swansea. Good road links and within easy access of the M4 motorway at either junction 47 or 48.
The farmhouse boasts a tree lined sweeping driveway leading to with ample parking and turning areas for cars and lorries. There is also a large, well maintained garden with mature trees and shrubs.
