West Wales Properties was founded in 1992 with its first office opening in Haverfordwest, quickly followed by the opening of the Narberth and Milford Haven offices. Further expansion into the south of Pembrokeshire with the opening of Pembroke and Tenby offices, and additional offices at Fishguard, Cardigan, Carmarthen, Newcastle Emlyn and Llanelli.
In 2000 West Wales Properties joined up with an associated office in Mayfair, London which concentrates on achieving maximum exposure through the national media.

Woodlands is a country estate located in the heart of rural Pembrokeshire, measuring approximately 34 acres in total, nestled on the edge of the village of Llawhaden, just 2 miles from the A40 and 40 miles from the M4.
The estate briefly comprises two barn conversions, a four bedroom farmhouse with detached annexe, two substantial barns, two cowsheds and a timber studio, with beautifully maintained and lovingly designed gardens, an orchard, pony paddock, potential market garden and approximately 17 acres of young woodland. The three properties have been renovated to a high standard, from their former structures as two barns and a neglected farmhouse, to three unique and charming homes. The main farmhouse offers four reception areas, four bedrooms, three bathroom/shower rooms and benefits from underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The two barn conversions offer character features that have been honoured during the renovations, which have led to two cottage style properties with practical layouts and modern conveniences.
Woodlands is true to its name, offering approximately 17 acres of young woodland, comprising a range of native species that have been nurtured, with walkways leading through the woodland to ideal camping and picnic spots. The orchard, with poly tunnel, provides the opportunity to develop into a market garden, and with two substantial barns, two cowsheds and a tarmac access lane into the property in close proximity, these could also play a role in utilising the land and building a country lifestyle at Woodlands. Therefore, if you would like to live the good life, collect your own eggs for breakfast in the morning and have sheep and fields for neighbours, then contact us and visit Woodlands.
Narberth or Arberth in Welsh plays a high profile in Welsh mythology. The former town hall still houses the cell where those involved in the Rebecca Riots were imprisoned. To learn more about the history of Narberth visit its brilliant museum. It is also home to several sporting teams, including Narberth RFC who currently play in the Welsh Championship and Narberth Football and Cricket club. Narberth is full to the brim with independent shops including craft and art galleries, bars and restaurants and boutiques. The town has everything you can need with health, dental, fitness and community centres and a Museum. Narberth is twinned with Ludlow and both towns celebrate an annual food festival which takes place on the fourth weekend of September every year. There is a regular bus service running to Haverfordwest, Carmarthen and the outlying villages and a railway station. For the children there is a primary school and a nursery school. Narberth is within close proximity to the blue flag beaches of Tenby and Saundersfoot and easy access to the County Towns of Haverfordwest and Carmarthen.

COME ON IN...
...through the front porch and into the lounge, with an integrated log burner that compliments the character of this home, and the dual aspect windows with window seat that allow the natural light in. Openings lead to the study room to the rear, with vaulted ceiling and skylight, and to a family sized dining room, currently holding a six seater dining table with ease and further room if required, and with a feature three dimensional piece of nautical artwork which has been incorporated within the internal wall. Through into the internal hallway which acts as the heart of the home, leading up to the first floor and exceptional landing space, to the ground floor shower room and utility room with store and airing cupboards, and to the kitchen and sitting room. The kitchen/breakfast room offers a country style, with light wood effect base units and central space for a family sized table, and benefits from a glossy black aga, walk in pantry and side porch leading to the side steps up to the garden. The kitchen also leads into a cosy sitting room, with coal effect fireplace, just a short walk to a comfy chair with a hot cup of tea!
The first floor landing living space is a rare find! With six skylights that let the light flood down from above, and the three pairs of french doors leading onto the elevated terrace, this room is perfect for those summer days when you can open all the doors, let the breeze in and sit with chilled drink. The first bedroom wing leads to two double bedrooms with front facing windows, and the family bathroom. The second bedroom wing offers a bedroom, which has been used as an artist's studio due to the amount of natural light from the side window and french doors. Through here leads to the master suite; a sizable double bedroom with dual aspect windows boasting glorious countryside views, and a personal bathroom with walk in wardrobe.
Adjacent to the main farmhouse is a detached annexe of the property, which has immense potential for further conversion (subject to necessary planning consents), currently offers a lounge/bedroom, shower room and first floor loft room. This annexe could be utilised as overflow accommodation, a cosy one bedroom holiday let or as an office.
Rowan is a one bedroom barn conversion situated to the right of the main farmhouse, which offers a country cottage style, filled with character features maintained from its previous barn structure, such as the arrowslit windows and exposed stone walls, yet added to by the conversion, such as the log burner in the lounge and complimentary warm tones in the decor.
The accommodation within The Shippen, the two bedroom barn conversion to the left of the main farmhouse, is set over three split levels, with a double bedroom, bathroom and utility on the entrance level, with a short staircase up to the master bedroom with en suite wc, and a short staircase down to the open plan living space, with lounge, kitchen and dining area. The accommodation is currently unfurnished, but similar to Rowan, the accommodation honors the barn features, yet enjoys a size and layout expected of modern day living.
These properties lend themselves to several possibilities; as permanent residences with multi-generational living potential, as comfortable and character holiday lets, as a retreat that could embrace the property's rural situation and naturally beautiful surroundings or as a home where you can live the good life in rural Pembrokeshire.
Drive down the private lane, laid with tarmac in Spring 2018, which leads to the central courtyard of the property. To the right, an 18m barn stands at the entrance to the fruit orchard, with a polytunnel and the potential for a market garden, bordered by hedgerow and another access point further up the lane. To the left of the lane, a little out of initial sight, stands a timber hidden gem; currently a ceramics studio, fitted with a log burner, WC and double glazed picture window with an inspiring view over the rolling fields.
The lawned gardens that slope down from the courtyard lead down towards the woodland walk, which takes you through the young woodland of native species which stretches for approximately 17 acres, planted approximately 10/11 years ago, which comprises a collection of oak, ash, wild cherry, birch and field maple. Tracks and pathways lead to various picnic spots and places to potentially camp, with a stream running alongside.
Up the hillside and to the rear of The Shippen, there is a paddock which would be ideal for keeping livestock or used as a pony paddock, with potential for stables where two cowsheds currently stand. Adjacent to these stands a substantial barn, with boarded loft, workshop and ground floor store.
The gardens of both Rowan and Woodlands have been lovingly designed and beautifully maintained. The front garden of Woodlands offers a level and smart lawn, from which steps lead up the rear elevated garden, which enjoys a substantial patio seating area, with views towards the vibrant flowers and shrubs planted amongst and around the lawned gardens.
Rowan benefits from a low maintenance patio garden immediately to the rear, with steps then leading up to an elevated, yet level, lawn, with flower and hedgerow borders.
The Shippen looks out onto the lawned grounds from a patio slabbed seating area, with a flight of steps to the right leading up through a flower garden onto the upper levels of the lawn. To the rear of the property is a low maintenance gravel garden, with walled boundaries.
