Former farms for sale, Darlington and Wales

My last few posts haven't really been about what we might call "wrecks". Indeed, some of the properties I've picked out have needed little more that titivating. Well, perhaps a little more than titivating...
Anyhow, today I've got two proper wrecks to show you. First a property sent by one of my resourceful readers, Wendy.
Above and below is a derelict former farm and medieval ruin at Coatham Mundeville, near Darlington - Wendy's "wreckiest wreck!"

Coatham Grange is little more than some ancient walls and optimistic drawings (planning permission for a five-bed home with large stable block) but it comes with four acres and a £270k price tag that's dropped by £80k since it first it went on the market almost a year ago.
More info via agents Your Move here, more pix on Zoopla here.
If four acres doesn't do it for you - how about 27?
Clyngwern Farm, below,about nine miles from Carmarthen, is a semi-derelict four-bed farmhouse (the rear wall needs rebuilding). It comes with 27 acres of pasture land; a two-storey stonebuilt former mill, cowshed and other outbuildings.

It's on the market at £250k through The Smallholding Centre. Details here and more pix on Zoopla here
