  • Description

    Description

    Our home is a Georgian House set in 10 acres of woodlands, gardens and a lake. We are renovating garden to its condition in the 1820s. Our home is in West Wales close to Cardigan.
    We're interested in hosting people who are looking to share a cultural exchange as well as helping alongside us as we restore the gardens.
    We're hoping to open a few of the rooms of the house as a bed and breakfast in the future but are not doing this while we are hoping to host some workaway colleagues.

You can also use the main kitchen and the drawing room. There is also a self contained cottage with fully fitted kitchen and shower room with two bedrooms. This also has wifi access.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Site seeing, walking, beaches, mountains, forests, river and other outdoor activities. Ceredigion has it all. We are only a few miles from Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen if you fancy longer trips. We're happy to lend bikes and surf boards (and we don't mind dropping you off at the beach with the boards!)
    We bought the house last year and hosted a couple who worked with us in the autumn. We all ate together at breakfast, lunch and supper and we are flexible around work time and leisure time.
