It's a perfect place to escape, relax and unwind. We have stunning views of the garden, hills and valley. You can walk or cycle straight into the Cambrian Mountains and, at the end of the day, sit back, enjoy the views, birdsong and the owls hooting and the nightjars whirring at night. There are very dark skies here so enjoy a bit of stargazing too. You may see red kites, peregrine falcon, buzzards and the occasional sparrow hawk or even 'Eddie' our local Golden Eagle as well as a host of garden and woodland birds
