Holiday Rental House
The Stoep - a veranda - is an immaculately crafted straw-bale house. Along the front is the south-facing wooden verandah. Inside it is a single space with sleeping at one end, sofa and chairs, kitchen-diner and a shower room at the other end. It is so cosy with a sweet little wood burner and underfloor heating. The Stoep is part of Wildernest, a haven set in the coastal hills above the delightful Aeron Valley. This is our straw bale house - one space with a stoep along the front. It faces exactly south with complete privacy over meadows to hillsides. It is designed to be really warm and comfortable. We have built it ourselves including the larch round-wood frame and lime-hemp render. It is naturally cosy, of course, with the straw bales and sheep wool in the roof.

Energy comes from our wind turbine and an innovative small evaporator plate heat pump. Low energy so no hairdryers please! There is a fire-pit for cool evenings. The sky at night is brilliant Please feel at home and wander around the meadows, wet grasslands and woodland. By keeping to paths, ground-nesting birds and animals are not disturbed. The Long Barn is available for the use of guests, with its open wood fire, sofas, piano and table football. There may be other guests so please respect their privacy. There is no television but broadband can allow you to use your computers. Phone signals are weak. Don't worry, you can always use internet communications. Bring your binos - bird life is beyond and the sky at night is brilliant!More
