    Our home is a 17 acre organic farm, We are passionate about farming in balance with nature. We work with permaculture, no dig, biodynamic and organic principles , and we have 4 large polytunnels. We will be happy to exchange our experiences of farming with you, and hope to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We are a family with two boys - 10 and 5 and would be very happy for some help.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have travelled quite a lot in the past , but now that we are farming we can not travel much, so we like to invite the world to us.
    We live in a rural location with gentle rolling hills and a beautiful coast is near by. We would like to help you to enjoy this landscape and absorb the peaceful surroundings.
    You can learn about organic farming and the busy lifestyle that we lead in order to provide good food for local people.
    And if you are interested in languages both of our children can speak Welsh. I can also speak a little Spanish.
