A former cheese house in a delightful rural location is going on the market for a price of £395,000.

Y Ty Caws is a charming two-bedroom cottage in the quiet hamlet of Lochvane, near Pen y Cwm.

Western Telegraph:

The house was initially a farm building used for cheese making and storage for maturing cheese, hence its name which translates as the cheese house.

The property has been lovingly renovated and converted into a delightful two bedroom property with open plan living on the ground floor, standing in its own grounds with private parking.

Western Telegraph: Y Ty Caws is a short walk from the coast

It is a short walk from the stunning coastline and several secluded beaches with the historic city of St Davids less than fifteen minutes and the beautiful village of Solva even closer.

Described by agents Country Living Group as “A perfect rural bolt hole, low maintenance home or profitable let, Y Ty Caws (The Cheese House) has a wealth of charm and character. “

The cottage is located, amidst a peaceful collection of six properties located at the end of a rural no-through lane, which offers seclusion without isolation. Originally all the buildings were part of a farm. However Y Ty Caws stands alone offering complete privacy.
