Entering the East Wing of the property you arrive in a large and welcoming hallway. At the centre of the hallway is the beautiful teak staircase leading up to the first floor. Like the majority of the wood and timber found in this part of the property, it was reclaimed from the royal yacht The Royal Sovereign when she was broken up at the nearby dockyards of Pembroke Dock. This has led to some remarkable joinery found throughout the property including the first floor balcony which runs around three sides of the home.
A door to the left of the hall leads into the original farmhouse kitchen, with a door under the stairs leading to the ground floor cloakroom and toilet. Two doors to the right lead into the formal sitting room and dining room. The solid teak staircase leads up to the first floor.

The property is accessed via a tarmaced driveway that leads down between the main house and the stone outbuilding to access the farmyard beyond. A gateway to your right leads into the beautiful front gardens. This south facing oasis has been carefully maintained by the owner and makes for a lovely backdrop for the property. The front gardens lead around the side of the home and down to the larger lawn gardens. There is also an ancient Yew tree to the front of the property which gives some suggestion to how old the settlement may be.
The gardens run down to the side of the property and take you towards the stunning valley which runs along the eastern boundary of the land. Recently cleared by the current owner this tranquil area has a large lake at its base with an island for wildlife, fed by a stream that winds its way through the valley.
The rest of the land comprises approximately forty one acres of pastureland and an area of woodland that extends to the north of the main house. At present this land is grazed by a neighbouring farmers sheep under an informal agreement which could be continued or ended to suit any buyer.
To the north of the house, you find four large agricultural buildings. The newest was built around ten years ago and houses farm machinery and a workshop area. To the side of this is a large livestock barn with secure yard to the fore. Beyond these two buildings are two very large barns which currently provide storage but could be used for a variety of purposes to suit a buyer.
To the rear of the house, you find a ‘horseshoe’ of stone buildings. Currently used for storage they could provide an interesting base for conversion, subject to planning. In the centre of the roof is an array of solar panels which provide a good income to offset electrical and heating costs to the property. To the western side of the home, you find a large detached outbuilding. Spread over two floors the building has four large garages on ground level with a large open space above previously used for grain storage. The building has an established gateway next to it leading to the road which also gives access to a productive vegetable garden and greenhouse.
Beyond this outbuilding you find a purpose built stable block with stabling for at least two horses along with a tack room, storage and adjoining paddock.
If approaching from the east proceed on the A477 from St Clears following signpost for Pembroke. After passing through the village of Milton take the A4075 signposted for Pembroke. Take the second left onto a lane called Dill road. Carry on until there is a fork in the road by the kennels. Take the left lane marked unsuitable for large vehicles and Winter Hall is the second property on the left hand side.
