Country houses with land, Wales & North East

A Northumberland bungalow and a Welsh farmhouse to show you today. Not the prettiest of houses but both have attractive plots of land and interesting possibilities.
This pink farmhouse, just three miles from Pendine Sands and the Carmarthenshire coastline, comes with around one-and-a-half acres and several outbuildings with development potential.
The house has three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room and a large boot room/utility space.

Outside is a garden, overgrown vegetable garden and paddock. There's a corrugated former cowshed, a large, two-room stone and brick outbuilding, a car port with an inspection pit and a greenhouse. All in all, lots of space for £225k.

But tucked at the bottom of the agents's details, a warning that 'there is Japanese Knotweed present'. And while knotweed may not be the major problem it was a decade ago, getting rid of it is a cost you'll need to factor in.
On the market through The Smalloholding Centre at £225k. Details and more pictures here and here.
Despite the dire photography, I rather like this Northumberland bungalow, below, I think it's the 70s vibe.

Located about a mile outside the small town of Wooler, on the edge of the Cheviot Hills about 17 miles from Berwick-upon-Tweed, it comes with around three acres of land.
There are three bedrooms, a bathroom, a large living/dining room, office room, utility and a kitchen. The adjoined double garage has been converted into an extra bedroom.

The land has lapsed planing permission for six log cabins, although the Google view of the surrounding businesses don't make this an attractive area for holiday homing.
On the market at offers around £200k through Aitchisons. More here and on Zoopla here.
