This is farming territory: chugging tractors, ploughed fields, neatly clipped hedgerows. John’s farm is vibrantly green and peaceful with 80 acres of woodland you’re free to roam. The family have nurtured this land for half a century; uncover the 4th-century ‘vanished’ village, the 800-year-old chapel and the 2000 BC burial chamber. Your hideaways are thoughtfully modern and flooded with light; both have sitting rooms with French doors opening to private patios. At Fancy House, you have a good-sized kitchen with everything you need and a working fireplace in the sitting room. Upstairs, bedrooms have excellent beds with white linen; the double has a window seat with views to the sea. In Ty Coed: a comfy living room, and a kitchen with gas stove and Welsh slate floor (underfloor heated). An open staircase takes you to a mezzanine twin bedroom with a fresh feel. The ground floor double, next to the living area, has a lofty beamed ceiling and views to the garden and woods beyond. Both have tiled bathrooms that sparkle, with free-standing baths. Rural bliss, but stroll for half an hour to find pub and shops.
