Goetre Farmhouse

16th Century Farmhouse with features from c. 1500

Welsh Meaning ‘The house of wood or the house in the woods’

The Goetre was surrounded by ancient oak woodlands once up on a time, is built of thick stone walls on the exterior to keep out the harsh winters with Oak timber framing dividing the internal layout. Remnants of this history can be seen in the extensive use of Oak in the timber frame structures on the interior using Oak from the trees that would have grown in the woodland surrounding the property. The hill behind the property on all of the OS maps is called ‘The Forest’ which has now long gone for use of smelting and cleared to create farmland.

This unique and special property sits snug in the landscape and offers exceptionally beautiful views down the valley looking due East towards the Shropshire boarder some 40 miles away, cradled by mountains on either side. There is evidence of its original early16th century ‘cruck’ structure with additions throughout the centuries which all adds to this unique properties character and charm.

The Farmhouse sits in a traditional Welsh farmyard with the building being of a similar age and equal interest. The Granary being one that has been restored and converted to holiday accommodation.

The Farmhouse has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, one doubling as large conservatory with farmhouse kitchen. This has spectacular views down the valley and access to the garden at the rear of the house. The kitchens are well equipped and the house has everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing, ‘get away from it all’ holiday or break with family or friends. The internet is a bit slow but there is good 4g!
