About The Straw Cottage

The ultimate get away, The Straw Cottage, is truly far from the madding crowd, a straw bale cottage in an idyllic spot on the farm. This is the romance of a bygone era with 2019 comfort.  If you want an unusual place to stay, if you like the idea of being away from it all and living with nature but do like a hot shower, a comfy bed and a flushing loo, The Straw Cottage is it...  More Info

We are delighted to have been awarded a Gold Award for the Straw Cottage by Visit WalesGold_Award_WEB_2017.jpg

"Our stay at 'Straw Cottage' has been one of adventure, tranquility and awe. From the beautiful Welsh countryside and rolling hills to den building, bonfires, kite flying, stream dipping and BBQs (every night!). We are reluctant to leave this amazing piece of paradise. We loved the seclusion, the feeling of being a million miles away from anywhere.. A big thank you to Anthony and Margot for making us feel extremely welcome to the farm. Elsie particularly loved seeing 3 hares scamper across the bridge (they were huge!) and the swing! and of course the treasure hunt!. " John, Helen and Elsie August 2017 See more reviews on our Guestbook page

Gundog courses - 2019


Another year ended and we are now well in January.  In 2018 we met some great people and their dogs on the gundog courses.  As always there was a variety of breeds - cockers, springers, sprockers and labradors as well as the HPRs, Braco Italiano, Vizla and GSP.  it never ceases to amaze me how people from all walks of life, different ages, sexes and interests get on so well, make friends and help each other on the courses - of course the reason is their common interest in gundogs.  Whether they want to work their dogs or just have well behaved and happy dogs, they all learn and share their experiences.  I particularly love it when someone who has not previously thought about working their dog, on seeing their dog use its natural working instincts, decide that they would like to have a go.  Many are unsure about what working your dog entails and how to go about, we can offer help and advice and other participants on the courses talk about beating or picking up on their local shoots.  Over the years we have had a few people who have succesfully gone on to do working tests and trials.

We certainly had a mixture of weather on our May course last weekend.  A very wet Saturday was followed by a lovely day on Sunday. Our 6 trainee wallers deserved a medal for their perserverance and determination to carry on walling whatever the weather. 

"A great day despite the rain. Many thanks to Stuart for his expertise and Margot for hospitality." Simon

"Great course, lovely lunch, fab company. The weather didn't dampen the spirits and built a short course of dry stone wall - fantastic." Tara

"Wonderful walls, wit - shame about the weather - fantastic fun and insightful instruction." Genevieve

"Great weekend, a blend of walls, geology, history and more walls. Good food and company too. Off to build my own ( small ) wall now"  Peter

"The venue is nothing less than fantastic as is the food, course and company. Walls are great!" Dave

Walking Through History   

Learn how to read the features in the landscape, what they are, why they are there and who put them there.  Stone walls, enclosures, banks and ditches all tell a story of the past.  Find out more whilst walking the Radnorshire hills with a landscape historian. Ideal for small groups of friends, societies, or just for an unusual special occasion. More

 Walking across the Radnorshire Hills

  "Fascinating and fun. The area is filled with history with plenty of evidence going back to the iron age. Stuart gushes with enthusiasm and humour and never tires of teaching you new aspects of the hills. A most memorable day." Edward and Lucinda July 6.

"Our walk was preceeded by a good and clear yet entertaining talk by Stuart. On our walk over the hills, he was a mine of information as we observed the historical and archaeological evidence. Lunch was a superb picninc and gave us a chance to rest whilst we enjoyed the views.  A thoroughly good day out, enjoyed by all."  Ruth July 6

The Walking through History days are a great way of finding out about features in our landscape, what they are, why they are there and about the people who lived there.
