An environmental search, will show that the land is listed as having a ‘low risk to flooding’. The vendors report that in the whole time of their occupancy (over 12 years) this has only rarely resulted in the furthest corner of the large paddock holding some surface water, and does not materially affect the property. We are instructed not to accept any viewings from applicants who feel this may affect their decision to purchase Llwyntidmon Hall.
