The property is in a prominent location close to Cardiff City and the market town of Cowbridge and is being sold as a whole or in lots with a guide price of £2.56 million for the whole.

“Tyn-Y-Coed Farm offers an exceptional opportunity to purchase a good sized mixed, organic farm in the sought after area of the Vale of Glamorgan and since farms of this nature rarely come to the market within the area we are expecting a great deal of interest,” said Ben Corbett who is handling the sale for Berrys at the Herefordshire office.

“Away from the main farmstead and directly accessible off the public highway is a collection of traditional stone buildings, known as Whitewell, with potential to be converted for other uses, including residential, subject to obtaining planning consent.

“This will be of potential interest to lifestyle buyers and investors looking to add value to a property, particularly as it so accessible being just five miles from Cardiff airport.”

This well-established farm includes versatile land suitable for forage and arable crop production along with a four bedroom farmhouse and a substantial range of livestock and general purpose buildings plus a selection of buildings converted for dog kennels which have been operated as a highly regarding dog board business on the farm for some 15 years.

The early 20th century stone built farmhouse has hardwood double glazing and has been extended over the years, most recently with the addition of a master bedroom and dining room. The well-laid out family accommodation includes two good sized reception rooms, conservatory and farmhouse kitchen with views to the west and east, utility room, wc, office and study/library.

One the first floor there are four bedrooms including the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and balcony, plus a family bathroom with wooden floor, bath, walk-in shower, WC and wash basin.

Outside there are raised flower beds, a fenced courtyard, paved terraces with integrated hot tub, extensive lawned garden to the rear with trees and pond and a walled vegetable garden. There is plenty of parking space and garaging.

The farmhouse has a 2.4kw solar panel system on the roof supplying electricity to the farmhouse and benefiting from the Feed-in-Tariff.

The extensive range of traditional and modern farm buildings, to be sold within Lot 1, are currently used to house livestock and store forage and farm machinery. The range of kennels included within the farmyard complex has capacity for 30 dogs, including exercise areas and connecting covered areas.

The agricultural land has been farmed organically since 2000 and is registered with the Soil Association. The majority of the land is described as slowly permeable clayey soils with some fine loamy over clayey soils, suitable for growing some cereals and pasture grassland. Oats, barley and wheat have been grown on the land in the past. The field boundaries are in the form of established hedgerows with livestock fencing.
