  • Description


    I am 72 and own 2 cottages in a lovely South facing wooded valley. I am 15 miles from the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path and near the National Park. I live on my own with my cat.
    I grow my own fruit and vegetables organically. I eat a very healthy diet and like cooking, but really appreciate if volunteers cook too.
    I am used to living on my own and I am a quiet person, independant and a feminist. I can find it a bit exhausting hosting people, so help cooking cleaning and dish washing and allowing me a bit of space is important .
    I'm a qualified yoga teacher. I am active in the local Friends of the Earth group and member of a permaculture group.

    This is a wonderful area for walking with well sign posted paths along the hills and valleys.
    This is the first ecovillage in the UK is near here. My village has attracted quite a few people who have brought land and are doing One Planet Development (a new scheme in Wales that allows people to build there won homes and live off grid).

    Its a lovely area for walks. Particuarly in the spring.
    Public transport is limited. There is a bus once a week from the village and a book-a-bus service. The nearest train station is 6 miles from here and coach stop 15 miles. I can pick you up from there.
    If you have your own transport normally there is a lot going on here : theatre, cinema, art galleries, music and dance.
    There's surfing and kayaking etc. at the coast, about 15- 20 miles from here.
    It would suit someone who likes an alternative lifestyle, loves nature and the out doors and is happy to spend time on their own.
