Malgwyn Bank lies just south of the 17th century five-arch bridge that crosses the River Teifi at Llechryd. Newcastle Emlyn is 7½ miles upstream to the east and the estuary town of Cardigan is 3 miles downstream to the northwest.
This long narrow property is sandwiched between the River Teifi and the access drive to Castle Malgwyn (now a hotel). It is essentially a property of two parts with the north and south parts separated by a hawthorn hedge atop a small stone retaining wall that runs the length of the property. The north half fronts the river and is composed of a public path fringed by a variety of riverside trees including ash, sycamore, willow and birch. The south half presents a very different aspect being a level length of well-tended lawn between the hedge and the castle driveway, over which there are some large full-canopied hardwoods including beech, sycamore and lime.
Aside from its attractive waterside location, the real appeal of this property is in the fishing that it offers on this the longest all-Welsh river. Brown trout, sea trout and salmon are all to be caught. In addition Malgwyn Bank is sold with further single bank fishing rights on 290 yards of the adjacent bank downstream (i.e. immediately west of the property).
The vendor is willing to sell a ‘Fishing Rights Only’ option for a single rod on the same stretch of water, the extent of which is fully described under Sporting Rights below.
If It Were Mine
The obvious first job would be to clear a few locations of bankside vegetation and trees to create a number of fishing stances.

Directions & Access
The village of Llechryd is on the A484 between Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn. On the east side of the village head south across the River Teifi over the stone bridge signed for Cilgerran.
The access to Malgwyn Bank is on your right immediately after crossing the bridge, located between a stone gatehouse and the riverbank (point A on the plan). You can park in a layby on the minor road opposite the gatehouse.
The lawns and laybys on the north side of the drive belong to Malgwyn Bank. They can be accessed from the river bank via breaks in the hedge at various locations.
The north boundary (ABC) is the river’s edge.
The east boundary (AE) is the west and north wall of the gate lodge.
The south boundary (DE) is the north edge of the tarmac drive. The lay-bys on the north side of the drive belong to the sale area.
The west boundary (CD) is the garden fence.
The sporting rights are included in the sale. They are not let. The fishing rights are for single bank fishing for two rods in perpetuity from A to B and from F to G, and under a lease until 2035 from G to H. The ‘Fishing Rights Only’ option is for a single rod on the same water.
The mineral rights are included except as reserved by statute.
