Three detached Welsh 'wrecks'

Three Welsh wrecks for you today. First the detached cottage above and below, up for auction next week (and my prompt for picking Welsh properties).
Definitely a wreck, and lovely because of that. Actually not so sure about the lovely... how about we go with charming?
Two reception rooms and kitchen downstairs, two bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. Plus dilapidated attached stone barn, and a third of an acre of land. Bonus!
Nice rural location in the hamlet of Sarnau, about seven miles from Welshpool, in Powys.
It looks like someone's had a go at doing some work on it. You'll want to find out how far they got and why they stopped.

And whether this stream running in front of the house had anything to do with the 'why they stopped'. See the gap under those concrete blocks?

Up for auction via Morris, Marshall and Poole on April 27th, with a guide price of £125k. More here and here.
Also on the 'big job' side of wreck-buying, is the farmhouse below, at Llandeilo, Carmartheshire. It does, however, come with a  whopping 27 acres of land!

Two reception rooms, kitchen and loo downstairs; three bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. And a rather enthusiastic attitude to decor throughout...

Outside is an attached garage/workshop, plus the land - which includes around 14 acres of woodland and 13 of pasture.

On the market through Evans Bros with a  guide price of £215k. More here and here.
Finally, JJ Morris has this detached village house in Wolfscastle, Pembrokeshire on the market at just under £190k:

No internal pictures and the agent's details don't give any clues to the renovation need (unless you take the fact the sale includes a static caravan in the garden as a sign of the house's habitable state...), but a good size and in a nice village green location, with a pretty garden out back.
