    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The landscape and natural beauty of this area is so peaceful. I will provide a welcoming gentle insight into family life here in Wales. We are very integrated into the local community and enjoy having people coming and going. Our life is a slow pace but thorough in its way, I am deeply connected to nature and the elements, and have my own practices to maintain this connection which I am happy to share.

  • Help


    We have a small woodland and garden that needs constant care and attention. I would dearly love help with this and various other projects on our land. I am interested in learning about permaculture, setting up my veg beds to align with this method, I've got a pond that needs clearing and one id like to dig and line. There's always plenty of wood chopping, path clearing and general woodland maintenance. I am also looking for focused help in the house and kitchen particularly, people who are happy to cook and wash up, generally see a job and do it- sharing the load with me.
    I am a gardener, artist, mother and cook. I will provide good food and lodgings in one of our comfortable outbuildings.
