Interaction with guests
Guests have exclusive use of the barn, and garden. My own house is also on the farm so I will be available if people need assistance, and I am happy to chat with guests as I see to the needs of the animals around the farm. I am a tourism ambassador for Carmarthenshire and the Brecon Beacons National Park so can assist with suggestions for activities and places to visit in South West Wales.
