We are two artists who bought the farm in 2015. It is a small-holding nestled in a stunningly beautiful and secluded Welsh valley popular with cyclists and walkers, just 20mins drive from the comely seaside town of Aberystwyth which has some excellent bars and restaurants. We are surrounded by ancient protected woodland, some of which, together with two streams and a river, is part of our land. The main house is a converted 18th century stone hay barn adjacent to a traditional medieval Welsh longhouse and two stone and iron outbuildings. Much sympathetic renovation is needed to bring these buildings to their full potential as accommodation and workspaces. Help with building, especially stone walls, raised beds and composting toilets would be much appreciated. Also some woodland management. We hope in time to be able to offer artists, musicians and writers residencies and host workshops for a number of different disciplines, from chainsawing to meditation. For the moment we are just making masses of compost and have begun to plant fruit trees, in first steps towards an organic kitchen garden on extremely inhospitable soil. Most of the land is temporarily let to a well-respected local sheep farming couple.
We are very welcoming, good vegetarian/pescetarian cooks and can offer comfortable accommodation for one or two people in the main house with us. More rustic but spacious and charming accommodation is also available for up to two in the hayloft, or field-camping for more in summer.
We can provide transport to and from Aberystwyth train station or bus stops in local villages Capel Bangor and Goginan.
