  • Description


    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
