Berrys have been favoured with instruction to market for sale this substantial and well equipped livestock farm extending to 75.82 hectares (187.32 acres) in rural Mid Wales. Alltyffynnon comprises a detached three bed farmhouse, impressive traditional stone buildings and an extensive range of modern stock buildings with the land surrounding the farmstead on all sides. 

SITUATION Alltyffynnon is nestled within the Mid Wales countryside but only a short distance north west of Newtown, a 13th Century market town with rich industrial heritage. The town of Welshpool lies some 18 miles north east of Alltyffynnon with Aberystwyth only 42 miles west. Newtown offers a large range of local amenities including schools, shops and leisure.

The B4568 runs between Newtown and the main trunk road A470 which provides links north to Machynlleth and Aberystwyth to the west. The railway station at Newtown provides a rail link to the east and west. The road network has been greatly improved with the recent opening of the Newtown bypass.
