House in 13 acres in the beautiful welsh countryside
Hi there, My name is Louise and I live with my husband, 3 children, golden retreiver, Cavachon, 2 cats and 5 chickens in a gorgeous house in the Welsh countryside. We have a house in Mallorca also which we like to go to in the school holidays, however since moving to this house a year ago, it has become very difficult to go away because of the animals. I am really hoping that I will find some people who love animals and the countryside to come and enjoy what our house, and Cefn Mably has to offer.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 6 bedroom house within 13 acres of grounds. There is a sheep proofed inner garden which is about an acre where Sidney the dog can run freely and safely. There is a small pond with a pagoda over it where its is lovely to sit and have coffee in the morning. The rest of the land is made up of 3 fields where a local farmer grazes her sheep throughout the year. I have converted the triple garage into a lovely guest annexe where house/pet sitters would stay. It has a kitchen, double bedroom, living area with a smart tv, gym studio with tabletennis, boxing and a basketball machine, and a bathroom with steam shower. It is very comfortable.
The area is in a fantastic location, 15 minutes drive from Wales's amazing capital city, Cardiff. It is also only 10 minutes from Newport. There is a quaint village pub 15 minutes walk away through our back fields which has roaring fires and beautiful restaurant. We are about 10 minutes from several supermarkets, however, if you want to try local welsh produce, at the end of our drive is a farm shop with an award winning butcher. The shop sells everything you would possibly need to make a delicious meal or breakfast. It is part of a children's farm park and petting zoo which has some lovely animals including alpacas. 10 minutes walk up the road are some fishing lakes where you can fish all day for £12. My son loves it there. There are several lakes varying from beginner to expert. There are many official Welsh walks in the area with some amazing views. One of them actually goes through our fields. Our front field borders the River Rumney and we own the fishing rights along that stretch of the river.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 8 free range chickens. They need to be fed twice a day. The also need to be let out in the morning and put to bed in the evening. They are cleaned once a week on a Monday.
Issy and Jessie are outdoor cats, they just need to be fed twice a day....
Sidney is a gorgeous, friendly Golden Retreiver puppy. She loves walks and she loves playing and spending time with people. She will stay in the main house and needs feeding 3 times a day. My plan is to try and take her to Mallorca in the summer so she may not be around for the summer dates. + More info
