About Caebardd

As you come up the drive oak and cherry trees frame the colourful shrub border that leads you into the yard surrounded by the old original farm buildings. The main garden is a mix of mature trees and shrubs that wrap around the house circling a pond that has been there for over a hundred years. The lawn takes you around to the herbaceous borders planted against dry stone walls made from stones picked from our fields over the years.

Steps allow access to the elevated area passing a greenhouse made from recycled timber to a beehive sat in a sunny spot with wonderful views. A bridge spans the pond a great place to spot dragonflies. The Japanese inspired corner with a little waterfall and paths surrounded by acers bamboos and grasses.

A door at the top of garden guides you across the yard to a wildflower meadow with paths winding around the trees, From there you can see one of the woods and a large pool which has a pair of Canada geese who visit every year to raise their young alongside wild ducks and the occasional heron.

I plant more trees every year growing seeds collected from the mature trees . The entire farmyard is now enclosed with trees which protect us from the westerly winds and have encouraged more nesting buzzards and red kites.

We offer several short walks through the many woods we planted with stiles and kissing gates then a climb up to the top of farm for views of Long Mountain, Rodney’s Pillar, Shropshire plains around to the Berwyn range of mountains Cadair Berwyn and Allt y Main There is a seat at the summit for you to sit and catch your breath.
