The Morlas Meadows scheme in the village of St Martins is being developed by Brynkinalt Estate in conjunction with the St Martins-based property developer, Primoris Homes Ltd. It is centred around the historic Rhos y Llan Farm, a grade-II listed building that has been a farmstead on the Brynkinalt Estate since the 16th century.

The scheme comprises 80 homes of distinction and character, ranging in size from 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms in varying styles. It includes 12 bungalows sympathetically styled in the manner of traditional farm buildings, preserving the character of the location. Terms have already been agreed with a social housing provider for eight affordable homes.

Public open space, planting and the creation of footpaths to safely extend the network around the village are other attractive additions.

The Morlas Meadows scheme, and the provision of land to St Martins School for education and recreation purposes, is testament to the successful relationship with St Martins Parish Council the estate’s custodians have enjoyed for many years. Primarily, it is a great legacy to the vision and dedication of the late council chairman, John Stephens, with whom the current custodians, Iain and Kate Hill-Trevor, worked so closely to further extend the resilience, life and economic vibrancy of our local community.

Morlas Meadows is marketed by Oswestry-based estate agents, Woodhead Sales & Lettings. It is hoped the first houses will be handed over to customers by late summer 2021.
