Surrounding the central holiday complex are a number of fields used for the grazing of livestock and also providing privacy to the individual cottages on site. It is interspersed with woodland which adds amenity and privacy to the site.

There could be potential to increase income by utilising some of the pastureland for additional leisure pursuits, and in the past weddings have been hosted onsite with an area used for a marquee.

There is also an extant permission for two further cottages to be erected on site to increase the business size.

The range of former farm buildings are all converted to alternative uses, mainly in connection with the Renewable Heat Incentive boilers system and used for storage of woodchip and general goods in respect of the various businesses on site.

In total they comprise around 18,465 sq ft (1,715 m2) of accommodation and could easily be utilised for further storage or business uses, or additional lettings to provide income, subject to necessary approvals.

Included are:
Steel portal frame buildings, under cement fibre sheeted roof partly used for garaging adjacent the Bedwgwilym farmhouse and further buildings formerly used for cattle now used for general goods storage.

Adjacent steel portal frame building with concrete block walls which runs below the farmhouse containing HDG Bavaria 199kW boiler and associated water storage tanks and control system.

Further 3 bay steel portal frame, open fronted building constructed of steel sheeted roof and walls used for implement storage.

Extensive area of parking and turning, used for log storage and fodder storage.

Main range of farm buildings, formerly used for livestock accommodation, being 90' x 40' approximately, used for general storage with adjacent higher level steel portal frame general purpose building with mass concrete and concrete panel walls under cement fibre sheeted roof containing concrete wall, woodchip storage areas and woodchip drying floor with 199kW AIKA boiler.

There are two 199kW Biomass Boilers, one provides the district heating for Bedw Barn and the Beauty Salon, laundry room, Bedwgwilym farmhouse and Bryn-y-Welon.
The Biomass Boiler runs on woodchip, sourced from local woods.   The second Biomass boiler has a drying floor adjacent and dries woodchip for the business. Both boilers benefit from substantial Feed in Tariff payments - further details are available.

The Wind Turbine provides 10kW of electricity, helping to reduce energy cost to all properties (Installed in 2014) with Feed in Tariff.   

Solar Photovoltaic panels which provide 10kW of electricity, to again reduce costs to all properties (Installed in 2021).

This is a substantial and profitable diversified business which has been developed and run by the vendors and would make an excellent business investment for the right buyer to add to their own business, or else diversify into an on-trend business which is benefitting from staycations and the move from holidaying abroad to reduce emissions, and benefitting from its situation in glorious Welsh countryside.
