WHOLE ESTATE. Offering a stunning main house, large secondary dwelling, two cottages, landscaped grounds, tennis court, summer house and boat house fronting the River Teifi.


The Glanteifi estate originally comprised all of the land between St Dogmaels and Poppit, although over the years much of the farmland has been sold off. It was originally owned by a succession of shipowners and sea captains: the house provided a perfect vantage point to view their ships setting sail for Europe or the Americas, as it sits in a prominent position on a peninsula with the beautiful River Teifi curving around.

Today the Teifi is a popular waterway for those that enjoy boats as well as a rich haven for natural wildlife, including otters and a wide variety of birds. Poppit Sands beach is only about a mile away providing a stunning playground. The popular village of St Dogmaels is also only about a mile away providing award winning gastropub, community owned pub in which the estate even has a share, Abbey ruins with café, working water mill, weekly market, and lots of community activities, including a choir, theatre group and sporting activities.

The larger shopping town of Cardigan is about two miles away providing banks, high street shops, and restaurants. Local road connections provide quick access to neighbouring towns and further afield with Carmarthen and the A48 M4 link road being about 27 miles away taking you onto south Wales (Swansea about 57 miles and Cardiff about 100 miles) the Severn Bridge and into England (about 119 miles).


This waterfront estate comprises four properties that include Glanteifi House, a substantial double fronted, six-bedroom period mansion set over three floors thought to date to the mid-1800s, that has overtime been extended and modified. The west wing of the house is now a separate four-bedroom dwelling called Mallard House that is currently let to a tenant. Attached to the north of Glanteifi is a cosy two-bedroom cottage called Curlew Cottage, again let to a tenant. The one-bedroom cottage furthest north is called Cormorant Cottage which is run as a holiday let. The cottage with a blue boundary on the land plan (Grebe Cottage) is owned by a third party and is used as a holiday home.

The whole estate comprises about 3.25 acres (stms – subject to measured survey) and includes delightful, landscaped grounds and gardens bordering the River Teifi with a tennis court and a large boat house with summer house above. Available for sale as a whole or in part.
