Two large country houses with land

Two big handsome Welsh houses today, the first sent to me by a reader.
The eight bedroom country pile above and below, near Llandovery, was sent to me by seller Angela. Nantymwyn House is lovely, and in a stunning position in the Towy Valley.
The agent's details are sparse (to say the least!) and you'll want to talk to them before seeing it, not least to clarify how much land the property comes with.

It's a major renovation job and it's not clear from the pictures I've been sent what work has been done on the property since it last sold, although those earlier agent pictures may give an idea of the work involved.
The property comes with stabling, outbuildings, and menage, and possibly 11 acres (I'm going from the earlier sale details here - as I said, rubbish info from the current agent, which simply says "with land"). There are large gardens and paddock areas with stunning views.

The House is in lovely position on the edge of the village of Rhandirmwyn, about seven miles from Llandovery. It's on the market through Russell Baldwin & Bright with a guide price of £285k. Details here.
Not quite so large, but equally handsome is Sunnybank, below, at Thornton, about four miles from Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire.

Four-bedroom, Grade II-listed Sunnybank also suffers from the limitations of the selling agent - there are no internal pictures.
What we are told however is that it comes with six acres of gardens and pasture land, and a range of farm buildings, including a large attached stone barn.

I'd suggest asking them what they mean by "in need of repair and refurbishment" before you visit Sunnybank.
On the market through Owen and Owen at offers around £350k. Details here and here, and PDF here.
