Approached via a country lane, Dolforwyn Hall features a Tarmac driveway leading to 'ample parking and turning space'.

As far as its history goes, that's "deeply intertwined with the local heritage and landscape", say the agents. It dates back to 1595 and was "originally built as a grand country mansion."
