Many groups come annually for their spiritual retreat and find quiet in the house and garden to follow their own practice. All minorities are welcome. Some like to teach and learn healing arts or leave their sculptures in the garden or rearrange the furniture for their use. The large lounge on the first floor is ideal for workshops as well as the cottage living room..
Some like to have a bonfire in the garden or sleep outside in a tent. This is encouraged as the house and garden is unique in being able to offer this. Other groups come back to play music together each year or party and leave a healthy bottle collection to recycle.Noise is no problem if you rent both properties. Likewise you can ensure peace as there are no neighbours around. Children are well catered for and dogs are very welcome.
There is a 3 foot stone wall between the house and the cottage so sound reduction is effective. Many families have up to 3 dogs if both places are rented.. Some engineers have used the house tor several weeks doing night shift work and used the utility room for sandy and muddy garments. As long as there is respect for furnishings and the house is left clean enough for the professional cleaners to do their final touches everywhere, then many uses are welcomed.
There are several local people who offer excellent catering to support workshops, celebrations and breakfast needs. Also there are also several halls nearby to rent as extra workshop or dance space to complement workshop use. Large areas in the garden have been used for yoga groups, tai chi, and other exercises. The house is suitable for a film location, writing and painting groups.
We are surrounded by an open panorama of breathtaking views which are visible throughout the house. Behind us, the enchanted Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain), and in front, Newport Bay and the Irish Sea. From your doorstep, you can explore a web of beautiful walks through sacred sites, mystical woods and valleys, rocky highlands, and, of course, the incredible Pembrokeshire coast path.
