Country houses for sale

The best country houses for sale in Wales, from a Strawberry Gothic manor, to an old Coastguard station

We take a look at some of the finest homes for sale across the Principality, from some clifftop properties with stunning sea views to country homes with amazing libraries.

Brecon, Powys — £3,250,000

Strawberry Gothic Ty Mawr is more than the sum of its parts — of which there are many.

Long hallways, arches everywhere, it’s definitely home for someone in love with this architectural style (perhaps someone allergic to, say, the sun?).

With six bedrooms, lavish interiors and 17.5 acres of gardens filled with outbuildings, there’s plenty of room to stretch your legs (or wings).

For sale with Savills. See more pictures of this property.

Tutthead, West Glamorgan — £1,500,000

They say it’s all about location, location, location, and you’ll struggle to find a better one than this former coastguard station on the fringes of the village of the Mumbles.

You could be forgiven for knocking the whole thing down and starting from scratch, but there’s a certain charm to the original modern structure (I think).

Whatever happens, the interiors will need a complete refurbishment, unless ‘1970s office chic’ is your thing.

For sale with Dawsons. See more pictures of this property.

Amlwch, Anglesey — £800,000

This might be the most northerly home in the whole of Wales, with views to match.

Ocher Las offers unrivalled views towards the headland of Point Lynas and beyond, occupying a special spot on the most northerly corner of Anglesey.

Recently renovated, the property offers five bedrooms, open-plan living and a garage/workshop.

For sale with Dafydd Hardy. See more pictures of this property.

Gelilydan, Snowdonia — £699,950

In the heart of Snowdonia National Park, and just north of Trawsfynydd lake, Plas Penyglannau is a tremendous five-bedroom home that was formerly part of the Oakley Estate.

Built in the 19th century, it retains plenty of period charm, but the interiors also feature an amazing vaulted sitting room to the rear. Other parts of the property have been recently modernised, and it occupies three acres of land.

For sale with Walter Lloyd Jones. See more pictures of this property.

Builth Wells, Powys — £650,000

Built in 2005, Tower House is an unusual home within the heart of the Wye Valley.

Set over four floors, the property offers four bedrooms, terrific views and has its own dumb waiter.

The central focus of the property is the large tower, and it also comes with gardens that lead directly to the Cletwr Brook.

For sale with James Dean. See more pictures of this property.

Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire — £1,750,000

A characterful farmhouse, a three-bedroom cottage and 182 acres of land make up this mixed farm in the Pembrokeshire AONB.

As well as being a handy business, the location offers terrific views out towards St Brides Bay.

If that’s not enough, a further 92 acres are available via separate negotiation.

For sale with J J Morris. See more pictures of this property.

Monmouthshire — £3,000,000

Is Glen Usk the grandest country house for sale in Wales today? With its sprawling rooms, ornate decoration and magnificent location, we’d have to say so.

It’s not just a house to impress your friends, however: it’s a place built for fun and relaxation, with games room, bar and basement carved into the cellar, plus the sort of snooker room and library that a private members’ club would kill for.

For sale with Fine & Country. See more pictures and details for this property.

Powys — £2,500,000

Just a few hundred yards within Wales, this simply stunning Regency house is just south of the famed book-lover’s town of Hay-on-Wye.

There are six bedrooms, four acres of gardens and a modern addition which houses (among other treasures) an indoor swimming pool. And the whole thing has been done truly beautifully.

For sale with Strutt & Parker. See more pictures and details for this property.
