Rochgate farm is a charming traditional farmhouse that is walking distance from the beach in the popular coastal community of Roch. The sale of the farmhouse also includes the added bonus of three successful letting cottages which have been carefully converted from the original farm outbuildings. Rochgate Farm originally marked the entrance to the land surrounding Roch Castle with its farmland sold off over time to allow this popular village to expand and grow. As a result, the farmhouse stands as one of the oldest properties in the village and is packed with character and original features. The beautiful golden sands of Newgale are a scenic walk away with the quiet country lane opposite the farmhouse leading you downhill to the coast. Combining this superb position with a substantial family home and great income stream, Rochgate farm is a compelling proposition.

You enter the main farmhouse from the rear driveway and arrive in the enclosed rear porch. Perfect for leaving sandy shoes fresh from the beach, the porch opens into the central entrance hall. To the right of the hall, you enter the ground floor reception spaces with a staircase in front of you leading up to the first floor. A door to the left of the entrance hall takes you into the well-appointed kitchen. This charming space combines the warmth and practicality always associated with a farmhouse kitchen with modern convenience and a large central island with a breakfast bar for informal dining. The door to the right of the entrance hall takes you into the formal dining room which enjoys double doors out to the front gardens and an open fireplace. A pair of double doors lead through into the large sitting room with another door in the rear hall leading into the handy ground floor study. The sitting room is a lovely space with two large windows looking out over the front gardens along with a door in the rear wall opening to the practical utility room. The practical utility room offers plenty of storage space along with room for a range of undercounter white goods. Off the utility is a walk-in pantry with a door in the opposite wall opening to the rear hall. The rear hall has a door to the outside and also gives access to the recently refitted shower room and ground floor bedroom. If needed, this part of the property could easily be reconfigured to form a self-contained annex, with the neighbouring utility room providing an ideal kitchen space.

The staircase from the entrance hall leads up to a long landing which runs through the property and gives access to the four bedrooms and family bathroom on this level. The bedrooms offer excellent accommodation with the master bedroom at the northern end of the home also having the option to be reconfigured with an ensuite bathroom if desired. The three cottages are found to the eastern side of the main farmhouse and comprise one detached barn conversion and two semi-detached stone cottages.

The three cottages have been successfully holiday let for many years with guests returning year on year, not just for the prime location, but for the excellent accommodation on offer to them. Meadow Barn is the detached barn conversion which offers two double bedrooms over two floors along with a spacious living area. This barn conversion also enjoys a good-sized, private, rear garden along with parking for up to two vehicles. Meadow Barn also has the huge advantage of having full residential planning permission, making it ideal for a multigenerational buyer who wants two self-contained properties. Mincorn and Eynons are positioned on the other side of the courtyard from Meadow Barn and each offer well-presented accommodation over one level. Mincorn offers one double and two single bedrooms and Eynons has a double and a single. Both cottages have seating and parking areas to the fore and use of a utility/laundry room at end of the building.

Roch enjoys a wonderful position with some of the finest beaches in Pembrokeshire a short walk away and the bonus of having the county town of Haverfordwest within an easy drive. This combination of having some of the most exciting coastline and beaches in the county with the convenience of having so many amenities close at hand is a wonderful selling point for Rochgate Farm. An additional bonus to this coastal setting is enjoying some of the finest sunsets that West Wales has to offer, with the nearby boutique hotel of The Druidstone regarded as one of the best spots to watch the sun dip below the horizon.

For those looking for a change of lifestyle including, not just a charming and welcoming family home, but a profitable and well-run letting business, Rochgate Farm presents a delightful option for any buyer.


Main House

Entrance Porch
Entering the property from the rear driveway you arrive in an enclosed porch with glazed walls and a solid pitched roof. The room offers plenty of space for storing wet boots and outdoor clothing and has a solid timber door that takes you into the main house.

Main Hallway
Situated between the kitchen and the dining room, this hall also houses the wooden open tread staircase that leads up to the first floor. The hall is finished with the original quarry tile floor.

The large farmhouse kitchen is a lovely space to cook and for the family to gather. Comprising a good range of wall and base units, the kitchen also benefits from a central island with breakfast bar for informal dining. There is a Rangemaster stove with extractor hood above it, along with space for an undercounter dishwasher and an inbuilt fridge and freezer. The room is finished with a slate floor which complements the exposed beams above. There are windows to the front and rear that bring in natural light.

Dining Room
Turning right out of the main hallway you arrive in one of the oldest parts of the home: the dining room. This room has a pair of French windows to the front garden along with a set of double doors that take you through to the sitting room and a separate door in the rear wall to the study. The room has an open fireplace as a focal point and has original quarry tiles on the floor as well as exposed beams above.

Positioned at the rear of the building, this flexible room is perfect as a home office, study, or children’s playroom. The room has a window to the rear and another looking into the entrance porch.

Sitting Room
The large sitting room is the primary reception space in the property and is bright and welcoming. Two large windows look out over the front gardens and a wood burning stove in the far wall provides a lovely focal point. A door in the rear wall leads you into the utility room.

This good-sized utility room offers an invaluable space for the running of, not just the house, but the cottages behind. The room offers space for a washing machine and dryer along with a sink, cabinetry, and electrics for a cooker if needed. Off this main space is another smaller room which houses the boiler and provides even more storage space. If needed, this room could provide a kitchenette for the neighbouring bedroom to create a self-contained annex in the main house. A window looks out to the rear of the property and a door in the side wall takes you through to the rear hallway.

Rear Hallway
This rear hallway gives you access to the ground floor bedroom and neighbouring shower room, as well as providing another external access point to the rear of the building. If this area was needed as an annex for extended family, it would be a perfect way to keep the parts of the home separate and independent.

Ground Floor Shower Room
The well-appointed shower room has recently been remodelled and offers a corner shower, hand basin set on a vanity unit, and a lavatory. A frosted glass window looks out to the rear of the home.

Ground Floor Bedroom
The good-sized ground floor bedroom has a window to the front and ample space for freestanding bedroom furniture. If not needed as a fifth bedroom this space could easily offer another reception room for the property.

First Floor Landing
Climbing the wooden staircase from the first floor you arrive on the landing which connects all the rooms on this level and runs along the rear of the home. A rooflight at the end of the landing brings in natural light to the space with exposed beams and stonework hinting at the age of the structure of the home.

Bedroom One
The large master bedroom has a window to the front and a range of built-in wardrobes. The room has exposed beams and stonework to the front wall and has a door to the attic space next door which offers handy accessible storage.

Bedroom Two
Found at the southern end of the building, this well-proportioned bedroom has a window that looks out over the gardens.

Bedroom Three
Situated next to the master, this compact double has a window to the front. Sharing a wall to the master bedroom, part of this room could form an ensuite bathroom to the master if required.

Bedroom Four

Meadow Barn
Meadow Barn, recently renovated to an excellent standard, offers expansive family accommodation over two levels. The spacious sitting/dining room boasts a vaulted ceiling and opens to a generous conservatory through patio doors. The primary double bedroom, located on the ground floor, features an en-suite lavatory and patio doors that lead to a charming garden. Upstairs, a well-appointed bathroom with a bath and electric shower complements the delightful twin bedroom.

This charming barn conversion is filled with character; its interior adorned by preserved original features such as exposed stone walls, authentic beams, and brick arches. Despite its classic charm, the cottage incorporates modern conveniences like double glazing and oil fired central heating. There is off-street parking for two cars adjacent to the cottage. The Barn also boasts its own small, picturesque garden complete with a spacious patio area, picnic bench, and BBQ space.

Mincorn is a charming semi-detached stone cottage, linked to Eynons next door, and offers comfortable and practical family accommodations with level access throughout. The interior features an ideal open-plan living area comprising a sitting room, dining area, and kitchen. Three bedrooms are found in the cottage. A double room with twin chest of drawers and built-in wardrobe, a versatile single bedroom suitable for both adults and children, and a bunkbed room designed with the younger occupants in mind. The bathroom is equipped with a bath with a shower overhead, a handbasin, and a separate WC.

Originally converted in the 1980s, Mincorn has undergone recent refurbishments, particularly to its kitchens and bathrooms. The infusion of oak and slate for windowsills and other elements contributes to the property's character. Outside, the cottage overlooks a shared courtyard with lawned areas, and it boasts its own seating and picnic table for a delightful outdoor experience.

Packed with character, Eynons is an inviting cottage positioned next to Mincorn that offers a carefully designed family accommodation. The cosy living/dining area seamlessly connects to an adjacent galley kitchen. The cottage features two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a single bed, suitable for both adults and children. All living spaces are conveniently situated on a single level.

Converted in the 1980s, this cottage preserves several authentic features. Recent refurbishments have further elevated its appeal, with the generous incorporation of oak for windowsills and other elements enhancing its original character.

The farmhouse and cottages are accessed via a gravel driveway which leads to the separate parking for each cottage and the driveway that runs along the side of the main house. There is parking in front of each cottage for between one and two cars, with them not blocking access to their neighbours. Both Eynons and Mincorn have their own south facing seating areas to the front of the cottages, perfect for taking in the sun throughout the day. Meadow Barn has a larger private garden to the rear of the cottage with an area of lawn and good-sized patio.

The main house has gardens to the front and side, private from the cottages, and these sunny spaces contain a range of sheds and a summer house. They also have a pedestrian and vehicle gate out to the road.

The lane directly across the road from the property takes you directly down to the golden sands of Newgale beach, adding miles of footpaths and some of the finest beaches in West Wales to the space you can explore from your doorstep.

From the county town of Haverfordwest, head North West on the A487 in the direction of St. Davids. After approximately six miles you enter the small village of Simpson Cross. Pass through the village and continue for just over a mile until you approach the village of Roch. Take the second right hand turn into the village itself (signposted for Roch Castle). Rochgate farm is immediately on your right hand side with the driveway into the property found after the row of stone cottages. Follow the driveway around and you will come to the rear of the main farmhouse.
