The placing of Lletytwppa on the open market on the market provides a very rare opportunity of acquiring a very convenient and well located South facing family farm. The farm has a delightful South facing warm aspect bordering the River Teifi on which there is extensive and valuable fishing. This farm is particularly convenient having direct frontages to the quiet Council maintained road interconnecting Lampeter with the Upper Teifi Valley Village communities towards Tregaron. The farm is of a viable size and is one that has diversification of appeal for those seeking alternative enterprises. It includes an excellent array of farm buildings which could be suited to any agricultural use or alternatively for commercial use subject to consents being obtained. There are also stone and slate ranges that could be considered for leisure purposes. The homestead is thus particularly well arranged and set up for alternative enterprises.

The Farm is offered for sale after a number of generations and is available on the existing owner's retirement.

The family farmhouse offers double glazed and oil fired centrally heated accommodation and is well planned and family proportioned. The farm has attractive level low lying meadow land, some of which is of gentle slope, the remaining entirely level and flat and bordered by the River Teifi. There are small pockets of sheltered native trees which provide good shelter together with well maintained hedges, all of which are entirely sheep and cattle fenced.
