Occupying a beautiful rural location, surrounded by fields and woodland and with a pretty stream running through it, Llyfanog Forge is in an excellent and enviable location. Properties that are so quiet and peaceful, but easily accessible and not isolated are very rare. The original smithy has been expertly renovated and sympathetically converted ca. 1993, and looking from the house across the field to the stream, woodland and field beyond there is a feeling of peace and tranquility. However, the property is in fact only 1/2 a mile and 5-10 minutes walking distance from the local primary school and the main A487 coast road with easy connections to Aberystwyth, Cardigan and Lampeter. The sandy beaches of New Quay and the pretty Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron, with its many amenities and secondary school, are only 3 and 4 miles away respectively. The property is currently set up for equestrian purposes, having a purpose-built stable block, related outbuildings and a fenced riding area. The grassland is divided into 3 convenient enclosures and the whole amounts to around 5 acres. The land was given species-rich grassland status in 2003 under the Habitats scheme and is a haven for wildlife. The property is connected to mains water and electricity and private drainage. Heating is electric, by way of thermostatically controlled eco radiators, partially powered by the solar system and supplemented by a powerful 8KW woodburning stove in the lounge (there is enough wood on the land to supply this).

Stone steps to the rear of the house lead to a large garden with an established orchard of mature fruiting trees and bushes, and there is a small wildlife pond.
