The Experience

A stable door takes you into an open-plan space with wooden floors, a big table for convivial meals and a leather sofa. Gaze at some of Spot’s art, Tom Frost prints and landscapes by Helen Booth. There’s an airy, light and comfortable feel, games and books for rainy days and a ladder to climb for a little snug area full of books about art. A 1960s Hi-Fi comes complete with records and views from deep window sills are over the garden.

Bedrooms are downstairs, womblike, warm, with Egyptian cotton sheets, more art and Jo Malone good stuff in the shower. Cook together in the open-plan kitchen with all the gear you need, a decent coffee maker, fresh eggs from the resident hens and a bottle of fizz. Eat outdoors on the decking, sprawl on the lawn or light the barbecue and firepit for summer evening sizzling.

Walk and cycle straight from the door, or pack up a picnic and head to white sand, dunes and cliffs at Penbryn beach.

The neighbourhood

It's rural but it doesn't feel remote - there's an excellent deli 2 miles away. The nearest village Llangrannog is 4 miles, with 2 pubs, a parlour for homemade ice cream, fresh lobster and crab. Cardigan Bay is 9 miles for the castle and crabbing trips on the river, or head to Aberystwyth for dolphin and seal spotting, or Newquay and Aberaeron for busy little harboursides selling local produce.

Spot & Charlie

Spot has a background in film and TV, Charlie in theatre. They met in Cheltenham and both wanted to live the Good Life and to experiment with interiors. They have a smallholding here with geese, ducks and chickens. They love to walk and they love the sea and west Wales. This is a close community with a big local art movement - Spot has a gallery in the village.
