Mike & Caroline Lawless
This is a very old property, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. We are away from main roads, so you can breathe clean air and enjoy being in the dark skies reserve. This was originally a tenanted farm on a large estate known as the Bodwigiad, that owned most of the land in and around Penderyn. Bits of land have been sold off over the years to pay death duties, but the manor house is still occupied by the Squire's family. Beili Helyg was mostly a sheep farm and had willow (osier) plantations which would have been harvested for making woven products like fence panels, baskets, fish traps etc. We have copies of the census for each year which shows that mostly there was a different family here in each decade, usually with farm hands and domestic servants adding to the number of people living and working here. Originally the house only had windows in the front and the roof was made of stone slates, some of which we have found in the garden. The labourers and servants accommodation would have been over the stables and cowshed, which was at the lower end of the house, while the family lived in the main house at the higher end. It feels like a happy home and we love it :-)
We both love the outdoor life, and enjoy a good hike over our local moorland and along rivers spotting birds and wildlife. When we are home we are generally pottering in the garden. Caroline likes to grow fruit and is a keen forager and jam maker. Mike likes growing trees and has planted about 4,000 native trees in our fields in the last few years. He also created a woodland walk for guests to stroll along and visit hidden corners of our garden, and to sit and listen to the woodland.
The Cwm Cadlan is a rural community just out of Penderyn. It has a nature reserve because of it's unspoiled and unimproved grasslands with many springs bubbling from underground. The reserve is filled with beautiful grasses and tiny wild flowers in high summer, with lots of moths and butterflies visiting.
