Please disregard my other comment. I realise that this house may not be part of the farm. However interesting photos.

Hi Chris,
You were right the first time, as this is the farmhouse belonging to the farm. It's very interesting reading about your distant relative and once owner. I don't have any more info other than that I've written on the Site Vist page, unfortunately, but I do know that the previous tenants left with a huge grudge against the then owners before it became derelict. There was a huge scrawl of writing above the fireplace which showed how annoyed they were!
Thanks for the additional info, your comments and for looking in.
Cheers, Eileen.

In 1914 the landowner of Catsash Farm, Llangstone, Newport was St Thomas Edward Watson. He was a local ship owner and colliery owner. He is a distant relative to me. I would love to know more about this farm.
