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.  The temperature fluctuates due to poor insulation. However, with modern central heating and log burners you'll feel warm and toasty even on a cold winter night.  Of course we have modern bathrooms … just not necessarily next door!

The new part of the house has large rooms, bright open spaces and modern facilities.  There is a practice room with spectacular views across the Welsh and English countryside and space for eight people to do yoga.  The large kitchen/diner allows us to cater for groups, with potential to seat 12 indoors.  However you'll often find us eating out on the patios and terraces enjoying fresh air and beautiful views (worth it even if you have to wear a woolly hat!).

For the moment though, we have sleeping space for only 4-6 guests.  Our guest suite sleeps two or three in a self-contained space with en-suite and private lounge.

Plans

Over the next couple of years we hope to gradually expand our guest capacity and improve the facilities.  We'll stay a fairly modest size so that we keep a strong sense of community with a welcoming family atmosphere.
