Large, sunny double room in an old, stone and slate house with a large wooded and wild garden very near Aberystwyth University Campus, National Library and Bronglais hospital.
Teas and coffee on a hospitality tray in bedroom, cotton bed linen, towels and light breakfast provided.
This house is a family home with books, musical instruments and plants. Originally converted from two Welsh traditional black felt hatmakers cottages, there are steps and stairs throughout the rambling interior.
The steep, terraced and sunny garden was a small-holding producing vegetables and supporting livestock in the woods.
The decorative garden grew flowers for displays in local churches and chapels. Over the last few years the garden has been neglected and I am starting to bring it back to order while retaining its wild charm.
There is an old slate lined well and fruit trees in the lower terraces leading down to the Padarn stream. This stream was the freshwater source for the medieval scholastic monastery at Llanbadarn. You can still hear the bells ringing from the old church on days of celebration.

Interação com os hóspedes
I enjoy meeting guests and try to allow guests to lead on how much interaction they wish during their visit.
Parking is secure on road in a very quiet, modern estate with street lighting and a short walk, @ 50m, along a tarmacked path to house. If guests have more luggage and/or equipment than can be easily carried to house, I can decant into my small VW Polo and drive down narrow lane access to house. This lane is too narrow for most vehicles and there is very limited parking at house itself which is why parking nearby, not at house.
