A family home boasting unrivalled views of a historic Welsh castle has been sold for £300k.

Llawhaden Castle dates from the 12th century, with an impressive twin-towered gatehouse overlooking the River Cleddau.

Over the centuries, uses of the fortress in Dyfed, Pembrokeshire, have ranged from housing military forces to a dungeon for prisoners.

Now its newest owners have the rare opportunity to live next door to it, after purchasing the neighbouring property, The Moat House for £15,000 above the guide price of £290,000.

The three-bed family home features a mezzanine, split-level design and two bathrooms. 

The property has successfully been sold by Landwood Property Auctions

It lies 2.5 miles from the pretty market town of Narbeth, where multi-coloured Edwardian and Georgian buildings line the high street. 

James Ashworth, Landwood Property Auctions director said: “The Moat House is a unique freehold property with a view of an exceptional piece of history. The castle view was definitely a ‘wow’ feature when house-hunters viewed the property.

“The split level design offers flexibility for the property to be used as a family home, multi-generational living or provide rental income. Whatever the new owners choose to do with the property, it certainly provides a great view for when you’re doing your dishes.

“This sale is testament to the expertise within the Landwood team, and the ability to unlock value in ordinarily overlooked properties to a global audience of bidders.”
