The old part of the house is a 16th century timber-framed building. We love the character, with ancient beams, low ceilings, rich textures/shapes, small windows, and nothing really straight or logical. We keep warm and comfortable even on cold winter nights thanks to modern central heating, log burners, electric blankets and warm jumpers.
The new part of the house has large rooms, bright open spaces and modern facilities. The practice room with space for eight people to do yoga has spectacular views across the Welsh and English countryside. The large kitchen/diner has space for 12, but you'll often find us eating out on the patios and terraces enjoying fresh air and beautiful views (definitely worth it even if you have to wear a woolly hat!).
For the moment though, we are limited by the available sleeping space. Our guest suite sleeps two or three with en-suite and private lounge. If you're keen to come with friends, there's another twin room with en-suite bathroom, but the nearest shower is downstairs.
We are gradually expanding our guest capacity, but we'll stay a fairly modest size to keep a welcoming family atmosphere. We hope to install a bore hole for fresh natural water and an outdoor loo/shower for occasional camping.
