Hammet at Castell Malgwyn is a 16 bedroom Grade II Listed Georgian Country House currently run as a Hotel and Wedding Venue ( awarded "Wedding Venue of the Year South West Wales" in 2018 and have been shortlisted for both "Wedding Venue of the Year" and "Wedding Co-ordinator of the Year" in 2019) but also has recently (May 2020) received an agreement "in principle " via a preapplication enquiry to the Local Planning Authority to convert the property into individual residential apartments (between 10 and 12 in number) should a property developer wish to pursue such an option. The conversion to apartments would be similar to other up market converted apartments in other historical buildings that cater for the wealthy retired over 50's that appreciate living in a large historic manor house with the upkeep and gardening taken care of via a communal charge. As our clients are looking to retire, another option that is available is to part exchange this property for a suitable period property set nicely somewhere for them and their dogs in England up to £500k or £250k in Wales plus of course the cash difference to the asking price. Lots of possibilities here to either continue to run the property as a Hotel and Wedding Venue or to convert to luxury residential apartments with a part exchange option available subject to a suitable property.


Description

The whole area of Pembrokeshire is renowned for its natural beauty, undulating landscape and stunning coastline whilst still providing convenient access into the area via the now toll free M4 motorway from England.

History of Hammet @ Castell Malgwyn Hotel

The present house was constructed c.1795 for Sir Benjamin Hammet, a wealthy entrepreneur from Taunton, Somerset, who bought the estate in 1791. It is built in three storeys of local Cilgerran stone with a hipped slate roof, a five-bay frontage and a two-storey wing. It replaced a previous house and was originally named Castle Malgwyn. Hammet, who founded and co-owned the bank of Esdaile, Hammet & Co. was elected MP for his home town of Taunton in 1782. The grounds were landscaped by local landscaper, Charles Price. After Hammet's death in 1802 the estate passed to his son, John. On John's early death in 1811 the house contents were sold. When Sir Benjamin's wife Lady Louisa died in 1824 the estate was sold to Abel Anthony Gower of Glandovan, who let the property. On Gower's death in 1837 his nephew, Abel Lewes Gower, inherited and moved in, investing a large amount of money on improving the property. When he also died young in 1849 his widow remained in residence until her own death in 1886, when it passed to Abel Lewes's brother, Robert Frederick Gower, who had also inherited Glandovan from their father. Castell Malgwyn passed down in the Gower family until it was sold in 1948, and became a hotel in 1962. The house was renamed Hammet House in 2012 in recognition of the original owner, but renamed Hammet@Castell Malgwyn in 2017. Further extensive history of the house over several hundred years can be found here at http://www.glen-johnson.co.uk/castellmalgwyn-mansion-hammett-house/ Website for the hotel is https://castellmalgwyn.wales/ however please contact ourselves who are acting under a sole selling rights agreement in order to arrange a viewing at a convenient time for our clients.
