Location

Patrishow, Wales, United Kingdom

Jackie and Ian live onsite in a separate barn, and run their software business from the office on the ground floor. The original farmhouse is a self contained holiday let which faces away from the office.

P.S. Ask us about booking the farmhouse (/h/fforest-farmhouse-luxury-eco-retreat-in-the-brecon-beacons) - and this property together.

Away from the farm, your nearest neighbours are at least half a mile away.
Set in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with 45 acres of woodland and meadow, the office is surrounded by farmland, common land and mountains, so there is plenty of space to explore and find your perfect place to work.
There are no streetlights so the views of the stars on a clear night are magnificent.

I’m married to Ian and the mum of 2 adult daughters. A woman of faith, who loves gardening, music and Wales. Ian and I live, and run our software business, here on the farm. We also plant trees, raise bees, and manage the farm for wildlife.

If you need anything while you are here then we work in the office on the ground floor and are usually on-hand to help. e.g. scanner/printer, cables, extra screen if you need to think big!
We live in the barn next door so are available 'out of hours' if needed.
