A fixer-upper in Pembrokeshire was one of September’s most viewed properties
September must be the time of year dreams take hold, judging by some of OnTheMarket.com’s most viewed properties. Throughout the month, website visitors sought a variety of beautiful rural boltholes from Wales to Scotland
1. Sidon, Tegryn, Pembrokeshire SA35 (£145,000 Dai Lewis – Newcastle, Emlyn)
One of the most viewed properties of the month was the perfect opportunity to create a hideaway in very rural Wales. Nestled in the scenic hills of Pembrokeshire, this plot has planning approval for a one bed cottage within walking distance of Tegryn. The existing ramshackle cottage dates from the mid-17th Century but it is fair to say that it requires some work! The plot comes with 4.5 acres of gently sloping farmland, which is perfect for grazing cattle.
Location, location, location: The sloping hills of rural Pembrokeshire
Ramshackle: The cottage dates from the 17th Century
2. Croft at 155 Oldshoremore, Kinlochbervie IV27 (Fixed price of £20,000 Bell Ingram – Inverness)
Another fixer-upper in a stunning, remote location was another one of the month’s most viewed properties. It is a working croft in a far flung corner of North West Sutherland. The plot has wonderful, uninterrupted sea views, down to the town of Kinlochbervie, where there is a deepwater, fishing port. The area is a great location for outdoor activities including walking, and mountaineering among the wild flowers and unspoilt landscape of North Scotland. The next stop is the Outer Hebrides!
Oldshoremore: Wonderful views surround the property
Rugged: The landscape is incredible
3. Hermon (Offers in the region of £260,000 John Francis – Cardigan)
Located along a quiet, country track, this eight bedroom home is of an excellent size and has large grounds. The property comes with approximately 10 acres of grazing and woodland. Perfect for a large family or for conversion into a B&B or guest house. It is 1.5 miles to the nearest village and exists in perfect isolation.
Large potential: An eight bedroom home that would be perfect for a big family
Splendid isolation: The house can be found along a rural track
4. Weedon Hill, Hyde Heath, Amersham, Buckinghamshire, HP6 (Guide price of £1,650,000 Savills – Amersham)
Parts of the Old Farm House are believed to be about 400 years old and the property sits prettily among the countryside that has grown up around it. The property is a large, detached home, which once served as the cottages for local estate workers. It is beautifully finished inside, with lots of room for entertaining, including three reception rooms. The two acre plot includes a wonderful English country garden, paddocks and even an orchard. A perfect slice of rural England, which is not far from London for an easy commute.
Ageing beautifully: This property includes an original cottage which is 400 years old
Picture perfect: The property has large and small paddocks with an orchard
5. Bay View Drive, Hakin, Milford Haven (£225,000 FBM – Milford Haven)
This quiet, seaside home has panoramic views over the Bay of Gelliswick in a much sought after part of South West Wales. It is only a five minute stroll to the local yacht club, so a great location for any sailing fans. The coastal footpath runs nearby and takes you on a wonderful walk to Sandy Haven, which – as promised by its name – hosts a large beach. This property is a four bed bungalow with wonderful views from each room.
Bright and breezy: This is a beautifully appointed bungalow
Postcards from the Edge: Each room hosts a lovely seaside view
