  • Description

    Description

    We are a 10 acre smallholding in mid Wales. Two homes -myself Jules, my daughter Rebbecca and four year old grand daughter Honor. It`s a beautiful place - woods and fields full of wild flowers, a ceramic studio (available to those interested) a polytunnel with veg, gardens and a tree nursery (see website ). There are always lots of renovations to do, new plans and ideas, good conversation and laughter. We cook great food (one house vegetarian) and have 2 wonderful dogs - and a frisbee.

    What else ...

    We live very close to the stunning Elan Valley reserve and dams, with many lovely towns and landscapes to explore in the surrounding area.
    We can collect from Llandrindod Wells station (mid Wales Line). Our local town is Rhayader about 3 miles away. We would be looking for short stay initially (1 week) with the options to extend.
