This 1600s country house stands on the edge of the Black Mountain. Outside: a two-acre kitchen garden, space to wander and brigade of patrolling chickens, ducks and peacocks. Inside, the house has spurned the urge to take itself too seriously and remains decidedly lived in. Find William Morris wallpaper in the dining room, lemon trees in the conservatory, old cabinets stuffed with interesting things in the sitting room and a medley of market finds surprising you at every corner. Bedrooms are big and comfy, bathrooms excellent. Katy’s cooking is good too: home-grown, tasty. Head out for fantastic walks, fishing, Aberglasney Garden.
