The Jacobs began farming organically here in the 70s and concentrate now on their kitchen garden – meals celebrate their success. Their cosy ivy-clad home is quietly, colourfully stylish, with books, watercolours and good local art; the attractive guest bedroom has a traditional Welsh bedspread and views to the Preseli hills. There are acres to roam and the meadow garden’s pond brims with life. Carole is passionate about history and literature and can advise on days out: try the Museum of Quilts in Lampeter, or Aberglasney, an hour’s drive. Do linger; this is such a rich spot.
