Keeping it local

We aim to be as self sufficient as we can - our woods supply ample firewood for our woodburner, we grow fruit for our own jams & preserves and ten hives supply us with honey.

 

Whenever possible we strive to use local services and craftsmen, from 'Dai Bach', our plumber, through to 'Cei Carpets', who provided and fitted the flooring throughout the house.

Our acorn key rings are made by local blacksmith, Alan Perry. We stock a range of other key rings, also made by Alan, all of which are available to buy, at only £9.00 each. For further details of Alan Perry's work visit his website here.

Bob Turberville owns and manages the ten hives that are on our grounds and supplies the honey from these bees that we put on our breakfast menu. Guests have often asked to buy this honey but, up until now, we have been unable to oblige. Now we can! Bob has mixed our honey in with the honey he gets from his other hives in Ceredigion, enabling us to offer jars of this honey for sale - from only £3.00 a jar. Unfortunately this is subject to availability (the weather can play havoc with honey production!).

A near neighbour, Kerry Hughes, designs and makes, by hand, items of silver jewellery, inspired by our spectacular and ever changing coastline. Select items from her collection can now be purchased from us. For full details of her outstanding work visit her website here.

We are pleased to offer a range of books written by local author, neighbour & friend Roger Bryan. These include the books he has written on New Quay, the history of New Quay's lifeboat station and his newest publication - 'For the love of the Royal Family'. With sufficient notice we can arrange for the books to be signed by Roger, with your own personal endorsement!

Subject to availability we now sell a full range of our own homemade jams and preserves - including Apple & Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Josterberry, Raspberry, Redcurrant, Quince Marmalade & Quince Jelly. The availability changes as the seasons pass, so for the full range just ask!

Our spectacular hanging baskets are prepared and supplied by Llanarth Garden Centre.
