"It has been passed down through generations and was owned by the current vendor who was is local man."

During lockdown, the beauty spot became so popular that police, councillors and local residents issued warnings over crowds travelling as far as 200 miles for a selfie.

Visitors were soon handed fines after locals held meetings following concerns over illegal parking, littering, and dog fouling.

In 2021, South Wales Police said they were responding to concerns over inconsiderate and illegal parking at Brombil "on a regular basis".

"This place got popular during Covid on Instagram, Tik Tok and Facebook, you name it and it's been on there," Samantha continued.

"The buying price is £75,000 which seems a remarkable price in today's market. However, there are some considerations to take in."

"It could be open to leisure and tourism, even paddle boarding nowadays", she added.
