About our home

Newly built open plan wing of our Welsh farmhouse with fabulous views over a hidden valley. We are easily reached from the M48 old Severn Bridge and so within easy striking distance of Bristol and Cardiff. There are greats walks nearby, historic castles, ancient woodlands and the Brecon Beacons to explore.

The accommodation is open plan and includes an ensuite bedroom and a mezzanine double bedroom. Downstairs there is a combined living area with solid oak floors, wood pellet burner fire, fully equipped slate tiled kitchen and bathroom with underfloor heating. There is also a huge conservatory and a hot tub on the secluded patio outside.

Where is it?


Although our tiny (10 acre) farm has an address of the small village of Shirenewton, it's actually about a mile from the village. We overlook a lovely valley with the Mounton Brook flowing through it, and it's very quiet and peaceful - although the birdsong can get a bit lively. You will definitely need a car to get here but if you fancy doing some walking there are loads of opportunites. Be aware that mobile phone signal here is very patchy but we do have reasonable broadband.
