The land comes with three acres of woodland that offers stunning walks.

The village website states: 'Our approach to environmental management is one of stewardship for future generations rather than exploitation for short-term gain.

'The smallholdings combine traditional farming and building techniques with the latest innovations in environmental design, green technology and permaculture.'

Estate agents Yopa are handling the sale.

The Lammas eco-village, in Preseli hills, North Pembrokeshire, is a collective of eco-smallholdings working together to create and sustain a culture of land-based self-reliance.

The residents of the ecovillage have come from all walks of life and their plots are individual expressions of sustainable living.

Originally planning permission was granted for nine smallholdings. Since then there has been a range of peripheral development adding to the community.
