The Cwm Farm, Llangattock Lingoed, is largely unchanged since its construction around 1750. The Grade 2* listed buildings comprise a farmhouse, cider house and barn in a U-shaped group around a farmyard. The Farm is being managed to promote traditional farming practices and land conservation, supported by the Welsh Office Tir Gofal scheme. Under this scheme, hedges are being laid and traditional gates and stiles replaced. The surrounding land comprises semi-improved pasture and cider fruit orchards containing ancient trees, which still produce fruit for a local perry maker.

The Cwm Farm Cider House — a large 18th century stone built cider house with its original press and crusher in situ, alongside a baking oven and many other accessories of traditional farm produce — was in urgent need of repair. The Cwm Farm Barn was also in need of urgent attention to prevent collapse. The end gable, which had collapsed, was taken down and rebuilt, the press repaired and a new floor fitted to the loft.
