Left: Huge wooden bear welcomes all our visitors. Above: Although in the early stages, we can provide a 'stopover'or longer holiday option for riding groups. The bridleways have been cleared and gates made 'horse-friendly'! Beautiful rides from Ynyslas beach up the Artists Valley and beyond to Plynlimon.
Please call to discuss B+B options - In the coming years we hope to offer Yurt camping facilities
Above and right: Camping available with access to water and firewood for evening cooking. Terraces have breathtaking views, a plunge pool with small waterfall near by and a rudimentary al fresco toilet area. (Composting toilet to follow Sept 2013!) BBQ cooking on the fire pits highly recommended and encouraged -but bring your midge repellent!
The Sun Room
Comfortable, light and informal, the Sun room can seat up to 13 people, and is proving to be an excellent meeting or teaching venue with stunning views of the site.
Part of the main house, it is available only at specific times and by prior arrangement.
Above: The Sun Room is like a huge conservatory with perspex roof and glass on 3 sides. Toasty on summer days, the windows can be opened for fresh air and there is ample space for flip charts, displays and tea facilities whilst overlooking the gardens.
Work, Play and Learn
3 miles form the main road, Artists Valley is extraordinarily beautiful! It is an hours walk to nearest bus, and there is no mobile signal to speak of. Many people enjoy the seclusion, but for those who like to keep in touch with civilization (?!), we have a reasonable broadband connection. Visitors can access the WiFi signal to check emails from the 'comfy sofa' in the Gazebo.

if we would like to learn more about what we do.
