  • Description


    We are a family made up of Marc (that's me) 52, Jackie 51, Ffion 25, Cai 22, and Kayden 13. We live at Pibwr Mill near Carmarthen in West Wales. Pibwr Miil is an ancient corn mill with a farmhouse and a cottage on a plot of land that sits next to the river Pibwr in Bolahaul (which translates to Belly of the Sun) It is a beautiful place with bags of character and charm. The mill is being renovated and there are lots of exciting projects in development. We have all the home comforts, electricity, hot water, showers, Wi-Fi, and television, but we are environmentally conscious we like to recycle, there are vegetable gardens, composting loos, and solar power. We can cater for vegetarians and vegans and we enjoy our food. We are relatively early risers as we like to get the most out of our days. Carmarthen is a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute drive, it's one of the oldest towns in Britain, ancient Roman, It was also the home of Merlin, King Arthur's Druid, and is steeped in Pagan history. There is a Caravan to stay in which is private, idyllic, warm, and comfortable. We are a busy family but like to have fun, we like to go surfing (lots of spare surfboards) horse riding, cycling, skateboarding, swimming, seeing and performing live music. Jackie has horses, she practices and teachers Relational Human ship based on Parelli as well as other models of natural horsemanship she also manages stables, horses, and land in Pembrey, which is next to Pembrey Country Park, where there are 500 acres of parkland and an 8-mile beach which can be ridden on, she is also hairdresser, therapist and a Yoga teacher. I work at a local college as a Media and Music Technology lecturer, I like to go surfing, I play and sing in a band, DJ as well as being an artist. Ffion lives in the cottage with her partner Joe they are both tattoo artists and run a shop in Carmarthen. Cai also plays in a band, he is training to be a Psychiatric nurse in Bristol University. Kayden is still at school, he loves computer games, and skateboarding and is learning guitar. We are a globally-minded family and keen to share our experiences with people from different cultures
