Hello.. we are Ian and Mandy...A warm wind has blown us back to the UK after 12 years in the south of France...we now live in a glorious cottage in the woods on the river Teifi in Wales. Close to the ocean and surrounded by the fabulous Welsh countryside. A place where time can stand still..A place where Faeries and magic live. A place that needs some TLC to reach its full potential. A magnificent woodland garden already exists and our intention is to naturalise it with more woodland and wild flowers.. a veggie plot for us to share with Peter Rabbit is required too.. the cottage is being worked on by us also. Lots of skills to share as Ian is a building surveyor and builder.. I am a textile artist and passionate gardener. Come and share the magic here.. warm, friendly, relaxed attitude that welcomes help with open arms, love and laughter.
So if a warm wind is blowing you in our direction come and make some happy memories x
We are English so help with language is natural.. between us we have a massive skill base to teach.. building, design, gardening, art.. the love of life and the simple things.
We are renovating an old cottage so building skills would be very welcome... the garden needs lots of TLC and some landscaping. Installation of raised bed vegetable plot.. clearing of riverside.. lots of fun to be shared.

This is a wonderful and magical place to live.. surrounded by valleys, Welsh mountains and the glorious coastline with harbour sand beaches. A fabulous location if you enjoy outdoor pursuits like walking, riding, cycling, canoeing, climbing, surfing etc etc... Lots of surrounding towns and villages with cafes and shops and cultural treats like theatre and museums.. lots to enjoy here. Lots of local transport too.. local town is 5 minutes walk away.
