Inside Princes Charles and Camillas almost entirely sustainable home in Wales

Although Clarence House is their most notable, Prince Charles and wife Camilla Parker-Bowles own multiple properties across the UK.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall also have the stunning Scottish Birkhall estate and their Gloucestershire home Highgrove House in their property portfolio, but their most sustainable is their Welsh home, Llwynywermod.

The royal estate is set in the village of Myddfai, Carmarthenshire and is only a stone's throw away from the Brecon Beacons, should the couple ever fancy a hike.

Llwynywermod is a huge farm which includes multiple buildings and was bought by 72 year old Prince Charles back in 2007, costing him a whopping £1.2 million.

It's reported that he spent 40 years house-hunting for the perfect Welsh abode before he found it.

Since then, his and Camilla's home has been renovated, and its main dwelling – a huge cottage – is a luxurious home fit for a future king.

Here we take a look at Prince Charles and Camilla's impressive Welsh home, said to be "almost entirely sustainable"…

Set in South-West Wales, the royal spouses' Llwynywermod estate boasts an impressive three cottages, a Grade II-listed barn, the main house and plenty of land.

It's been over 14 years since Charles bought the home and in that time he has personally overseen the developments on the project, ensuring it was as sustainable as possible.

The Prince has always been passionate environmental issues and has brought that into his Welsh home.

For the renovation, Charles reused materials such as Welsh slate and lime plaster which were sourced locally.

He also hired labourers from the surrounding areas who transformed the home into a sustainable haven.

All of the farm's heating and hot water comes from a wood-chip boiler, and the property even has its very own tank for rainwater storage.

The royals have shown some of their Welsh home to the public, which has given fans a glimpse into what it's like to stay at the main cottage.

The white-painted home has perfectly landscaped gardens at its front and back, with plenty of vegetable patches for growing fresh produce.

Their main reception room has huge ceilings and all of its original features such as the wooden beams have been kept exposed.

Inside there are plenty of traditional log fireplaces and burners, and the furniture all compliments the classic design of the farmhouse.

Tapestries line the walls of the main dining room, and the floors are adorned with huge rugs.

A huge arched window in the dining room steals the show with a ginormous dining table with 12 chairs placed in the centre of the room.

The majority of the property's furnishings are made from dark wood, to match the original features.

The Prince and Duchess' bedroom features a modest double bed with a grey headboard, and has matching bedside tables either side.

They've been decorated with matching floral lamps which add a pop of colour to the cream-coloured room.

Llwynywermod's bathroom is also cream-coloured, with the walls painted in a magnolia shade and styled with matching tiles.

The bathroom has only a bath, a toilet and a sink, and its only decor is a small painting hanging on the wall.
