Gelly's unique quality is hard to describe. The place holds a kind of mesmerising tranquillity, conducive both to relaxation and creative work. Rest here from the troubles of modern life, gain perspective and explore the rugged, natural beauty of Wales that lies all around. Or focus on your own creative writing, playing or composition, following Dylan Thomas who lived, mused and wrote here. Or simply come to enjoy the natural wildlife of our organic pastures: Red kites, owls, jays and much more.

El espacio
Gelly is a rare and beautiful house in two parts; the original stone farmhouse inhabited by my sizeable family, dates back to the 1690s. The Guest Room where you will stay is situated in the newer, more elegant Georgian end of the house, where Dylan Thomas famously rented a room with his wife Caitlin during the second world war.

Furnished by my mother over many years in keeping with the age and style of the house, Gelly has a strong feel of history and continuity, giving a sense of what it might have been like here when it was newly built, back in the 1790s. The king-size Hepplewhite four-poster bed combines the romantic elegance and beauty of hand-painted silk hangings with the comfort of a luxurious modern mattress, allowing you to take full advantage of the intense quiet and dark that lends the place a special quality of sleep. Optional shutters as well as curtains keep the morning light at bay for that well-earned lie-in. Fall asleep to the hooting of owls and wake to the melancholy whistling cry of the Red kite.

The name Gelly means Grove, and many of the trees here, (beech, cedars, oaks, yew, walnut) were planted when the house was built, so have seen some 200-300 years, including the majestic Western Red Cedar that Dylan Thomas himself famously sat under, drinking still-warm milk from the farm.

The water pressure here is not high enough for a decent shower, however the bath in the en suite bathroom is extra long (especially appreciated by tall people) and enjoys some of the best views in the house of the fields and trees of the estate.

Downstairs is the Music Room, equipped with amenities for dining (breakfast is in here) and also a large table and Steinway grand piano for the creative among you.

Acceso de los huéspedes
The Georgian part of the house, where you will stay, has its own private front door, unused by the family, so you will have as much privacy as you would like.
Access is down the very leafy and mysterious front drive, with a charming and unique thatched lodge as you enter. Beware, the gates are a little narrow - but perfectly passable for most vehicles.
You can park right outside the door if it is dark or wet, or just a few yards away if you prefer.

Otros aspectos a destacar
Breakfast includes tea, coffee, cereal, toast, fruit and locally baked organic sourdough bread with our own marmalade and honey or Bonne Maman jam. Please advise of any special dietary requirements, or just your favourite choice of milk (skimmed, semi, whole, soya, rice, oat, almond, goat's... any more?)
We are very lucky to have natural spring water coming out of the taps.

Tal-sarn, Wales, Reino Unido

Surrounded by farmland, the house is well removed (and hidden) from the road - a welcome escape from the noise and bustle of city life; come here to unwind, renew your spirits or reconnect with yourself (and each other). Guests have access to the idyllic front garden where you can sit and drink tea, go for a walk or simply breathe in the sweet Welsh air. Five white geese and some friendly hens and ducks may wander past..
Nature is abundant here - a recent unexpected visitor was a hedgehog in the hallway, but outside is a birdwatcher's paradise. Apart from the daily Red Kite flyovers, we have resident jays, woodpeckers, Barn and Tawny owls, herons and many besides. Moles, toads, shrews, badgers, peacock butterflies are all familiar.

A connecting door separates the two ends of the house, giving you complete privacy and peace and quiet; however I will be available when needed and if a knock doesn't find me, the phone should do the trick.
