Our Story

We love living here.  We arrived over 20 years ago and raised our children here.  Our garden and orchards, which adjoin our beautiful meadow have been a major interest for us.  We also enjoy walking, running and cycling in the valleys and woodlands and over the hills and mountains.  In summer we love to swim in the rivers and the sea. 

As well as the landscape, we appreciate the rich culture and history of Wales including the Welsh language which we have both learned to speak, read and write to various levels.  We have played an active role in a community heritage project to repair and restore the wonderful medieval church in the village.  This area hosts lots of events celebrating Welsh culture from local agricultural shows held during the summer to singing concerts held at Aberystwyth Arts Centre and other venues.   Wellbeing is a shared interest and our vision is to provide our guests with a bolt hole where they can relax and recharge which is something we all need in our lives.

After a career in forestry and land management, Peter used his knowledge about timber and interest in wood-working, to design and build the cabin using locally sourced timber.  He combined the cabin construction with training as a furniture maker and you will see some of his work in the cabin and also on Instagram:  Coedisan Furniture

Marion worked with local schools for many years on fitness and health related areas and growing our own fruit and vegetables has chimed with her day job in the past.  If you order a courgette cake or other produce during the summer the vegetables will be sourced from our kitchen garden depending on what is in season.  She shares her gardening year on Instagram:   My Welsh Kitchen Garden 

Marion also loves travelling but is always thrilled to get home again. An American cousin of hers lives in a wonderful part of Maine but says that our meadow is her favourite place in the whole world.  We agree and we have designed our cabin to enable you to soak up the spirit of this very special place.  We would like more people to experience this delightful area of Wales and to appreciate its special qualities.  

We look forward to sharing our Dôl Swynol (Charming Meadow) with you.
