The local countryside is ideal for birdwatchers. Over 50 different varieties of birds have been spotted in our valley, including goshawks, treecreepers, owls, buzzards, red kites, herons and cukoos.
The countryside is also ideal for ramblers. Our house sands on the edge of the common, where you can walk for miles and your only companios will be sheep, wild horses and wild birds. Offa''s Dyke path is five miles distant, since this is border country. There are also many hamlets with beautiful ancient churches, such as Rhulen, Cregrina, Colva and Aberedw. Celtic stone circles, mote and bailey castle remains are all within walking distance across unspoilt hills and countryside.
