Back in 2013 we set about bringing the 17th century farmhouse back into habitation in a detailed conservation project using specialist local craftsmen. Developing the smallholding along Organic principles the farm is a haven for wildlife betwixt a stream and the River Dulais with 4 acres of woodland and  26 acres of unimproved meadow land. We look forward to sharing our special slice of Wales!


The farm balances wild spaces with careful and sensitive management with traditional coppicing, hedge laying and grazing with sheep and cattle. The farmhouse restoration is a model of conservation using lime mortars, plaster and paints together with ecological insulation materials. This philosophy has been extended to the shepherd's hut constructed by a Monmouthshire firm from local FSC timber and Welsh sheep's wool insulation. 

Camping (as an alternative to the shepherd's hut) is on the 28 day rule so please contact us in advance for booking information
