SOLD: Cae Ffynnon £120,000 Freehold


Cae Ffynnon, named because of the ancient well (ffynnon - well) is a large meadow land with some well established trees on its borders. Its borders are marked in aqua marine and are clearly visible.

It is accessed up a newly built track from the main parking area. At the top there is a turning circle and space for a vehicle to park.

The southern meadow which gives access to the meadowland, is a well drained sloping open field, suitable for camping or grazing accessed from the main parking area.

The north eastern field is a lovely gently sloping open meadow, full of wild flowers in the summer and fringed with mature beech, ash and oak to name a few. It's borders are fenced. Where they are double fenced next to a neighbouring meadow, the boundary is to the centre of mature tree growth. The area is mostly south facing and gets sun all the day around. It's perfect for grazing, camping, planting woodland or even a One Planet Development project.

The north western field is where the ancient well is to be found. Originally, according to the local farmer, this was a collection point for the water running off the hill. Marked on OS maps it's clearly visible and could be an interesting restoration project as currently it only occasionally has water. This area is also mostly southern facing and gently sloping. The fence line between the south and north area has a small water ditch running along it.

To the west there is a smaller field which neighbours the house. This stretches south to the main parking area and a padlocked gate. On this field there is an old stone barn which is included in the sale. The barn is currently in need of a lot of renovation, but has the potential to be a great asset to the meadow. Please take great care if you enter the barn.

Cae Ffynnon is a stunning group of small meadows with huge potential for grazing, camping or planting.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.


This meadowland is bordered with mature trees, some being Oak and Ash. It also has some ancient divisions within the meadow which boast some towering Ash, beautiful for shade on a hot summers day.

There are also blackthorn, willow and beech trees to name a few.


During our work in the woodland we have been lucky enough to see Red Deer grazing outside our tents in the early morning. There are also a few badger dens, some old and some active.

Spring and summer sees numerous butterflies and insects.

The birdlife is diverse, being so close to Moel Bentyrch hill the meadow often has birds of prey frequenting it. We have seen buzzards and we think peregrine falcons must be nesting nearby.

The woodland and fields are full of life the whole year round.


Composed of three main areas, Cae Ffynnon has an open meadowland to the south; this borders the track climbing up to the parking area. The north east meadow is a private meadowland nestled between Moel Bentyrch Hill and a living (fenced) border. It has some very mature ash in the upper centre, the western meadow is where you can find the ancient well, it stretches down to the main parking area.

Onsite is a gorgeous old barn in need of some love.

Access, tracks and footpaths

The access to Cae Ffynnon is via the right of way up the newly laid track leading up from the bottom car parking area. At the top of the slope there is a flat area suitable for a vehicle.

From the vehicle area keeping the boundary fenceline on your right there is an opening ahead which leads into the north, east and western fields of Cae Ffynnon. The boundaries are marked in aqua marine.

A second gateway to the left of the barn opens directly into the small western field.

There are no public footpaths on Cae Ffynnon, but lots of tracks where animals have wandered over the years.


Behind Cae Ffynnon is Moel Bentyrch hill, and we highly recommend walking to to the top to take in the beautiful rolling countryside views. Also up here have a look for the ancient settlement, perhaps the well on Cae Ffynnon is where they drew their water from?
