A half timbered cottage from about 1600 with a new highly insulated extension, the old cottage partly restored, set in a garden with wildflower meadow, bee-hives and fruit trees, with mature trees around and views to Hay Bluff. While all are welcome, Irish and Swedish guests are particularly so, especially if they play traditional music.
This is a small oasis from the farmland around, with bees, wild flowers, butterflies and birds. I hope the house is a combination of clean unclutterd lines with a traditional background, and I'm restoring one end of the house using oak and hazel wattles and traditional materials combined with high insulation levels.

A double bedroom and adjoining small bathroom is your own space. If you want breakfast or are happy to share my space there's a big farmhouse type kitchen. There is also a toilet and shower on the ground floor which you can share.

I know this area pretty well so I can help with ideas and dirrections etc.
If I'm working building on the other end of the house it will not impact on ypur stay.

I'm a country person. I keep bees. I play Irish music. I like vegetable gardening, the natural world, reading. The photo shows me with my granddaughter in an extension I was building on my little black-and white cottage. I don't have many photos of my self - that's the only one I could find. I speak fluent Swedish and some Irish. I've been a commercial fisherman, a teacher, a builder, a translator, a commercial cider maker. I've worked skyline winches in the forestry in the Highlands, and so on. I've four children, all grown up, and eight step-children. I live on my own.
