    This is an interesting smallholding for sale with income potential – suited for a family, perhaps with young children.

    The bungalow-style property is based in Cilcennin, near Lampeter, Ceredigion, Wales.

    It holds 4 bedrooms and conveniently 2 bathrooms which is an ideal set-up for a family dwelling. The current owners obviously have young ones – this setting ideally suits an owner household with children.

    The property’s 4.5 acreage of level land has been used most recently as a camping and caravan site. With agricultural buildings and productive land, glamping might also suit. Although, it doesn’t seem as if the owners have packaged the business for transfer. There is no established income.

    It’s a property that has many potential uses for a family of 5 to 8 or so.

    The paddocks present a kind of blank canvass for business use (still good for grazing – plus outbuildings), with a big hint left behind by the current owners (campsite operators).

    The price?

    £465,000 (Guide)

    Your thoughts?


    This is a beautiful family home and provides the space, views, and proximity to the sea for a hospitality venture of some kind. With a little investigation, it is being advertised as such on a directory online.

    The grounds look very well maintained, with the good access that would be needed for a caravan or campsite. It would have been good to see some drone footage of the site or some of those distant sea views. There is clearly the space to run a campsite that offers guests privacy at a distance from the “big house” and perhaps some of the existing structures could be modified to create a shower block or some chalets.

    If a campsite or caravan park is to operate alongside livestock farming, planning may need to be reacquired, depending on what was previously happening there. Also if two different types of businesses are run on the site, they may need to be structured as separate businesses for financing and tax purposes.


    Just thinking about static caravans enjoying those rural and distant sea views…

    Could the statics be set up and purchased by long-term leasers/owners? Do you know how that would work as a business?
