Natural building and low running costs:

The cottage has been restored and extended using traditional and ecological materials and methods/design. In particular, the air-tight extensions are constructed of local and durable timber with natural sheepswool insulation. The house has been decorated with eco-paints and finishes maintaining the philosophy of a breathable building.

A combination of high insulation levels, renewable energy systems and the solar benefits of a south-facing conservatory mean the running costs [space heating and hot water] are very low. The heating and hot water is provided by a 12.5kW Clearview wood stove with back boiler plus Solar-evacuated tubes for hot water. There is also an electric immersion heater.

Externally there is a charge point for an electric vehicle.

The garden:

The land is just under three-quarters of an acre and has several distinct gardens. These include wooded areas, an orchard, vegetable & fruit gardens, lawns and secluded seating areas. It is surrounded by hedges, farmland and a small stream. The woodland boundaries shelter the garden and bring in a rich variety of wildlife. In the spring the orchard is full of bluebells followed by a wild flower meadow in the summer. It is a historic site with Neolithic and iron age remains, a walk away from Pentre Ifan burial
chamber and the source of Stonehenge’s Bluestones.  Along with the beautiful views, history lends
this home a certain magic.

There are two wooden garden sheds and a large wood store [9.5m3 of wood]. There is planning permission for another sizeable wood store in the car park. There is a gated entrance and off road gravelled parking area for 2-3 cars.

There are several special walks accessible from the house. Including Ty Canol woodland which is a SSSI; Pentre Ifan burial chamber; the Preseli mountains; Allt Clydach and the Gwaun valley’s oak and beech woods. The Bluestone micro brewery with fine beer and small music events is only 1 mile away.
