  • Description

    Description

    We live on a sheep farm in West Wales, working with nature, not against it. We have 2 working dogs who live in the house. We are looking for someone to help with the house and garden and for us to become more self sufficient, e.g. chicken house, veg growing and winter crop storage. We eat freshly prepared food, often vegetarian and would welcome anyone interesting in cooking.

    It is an attractive farm with wooded area and moorland and magnificent views from the top of the farm looking over the Preseli Hills on one side and the Irish sea down to St David's peninsula on the other. We have a large variety of tasks to suit practical.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Fishguard library houses the famous Last Invasion Tapestry, (likened to the Bayeux tapestry) which depicts the last French invasion of 1797. The Preseli Mountains is home to the amazing Bluestone. It must have been for the builders of Stonehenge to transport it 150 miles from its home in the Preseli Mountains several thousands of years ago.
    In May there is a folk festival and the Jazz festival and agricultural shows in August.
    There is a ferry to Ireland.
    There are seals, porpoises and dolphins and many sea birds to be seen around the coast at Strumble Head lighthouse.
    St Davids the smallest city in the United Kingdom is 15 miles away and home to a beautiful cathedral, built in 1181.
    We also have many castles to explore in Pembrokeshire.
    This area is a haven for the environmentalist, people interested in wildlife, archaeology, geology and history. The lighting is magnificent for artists and the area has a very large artistic community.
