Description
Foot-Slope-Soap was founded in 2015 by two artists with a passion for the environment. Our valley, with its surrounding hills cloaked in SSSI ancient oak woodlands, is renowned for being the most beautiful in all Ceredigion, popular with hikers, cyclists and wild swimmers. We are looking for enthusiastic but mindful help at the very beginning of our exciting new project. We aspire to have our 18 acres, mostly pasture at present, eventually reach certified organic status. The land, temporarily let to a respected local sheep farming couple, includes a river and two acres of mature deciduous woodland. Current work is concentrated on outbuildings, and beginning construction of an organic garden and apiary near the main house. The original farmhouse is a 17th century Welsh longhouse, being carefully renovated to provide further accommodation. The hayloft is now a cosy private sleeping barn for two. The converted 18th century threshing barn has accommodation for one/two WWOOFERs and us, with shared bathroom, fitted kitchen, woodburners and even carpets. NOTE: there is very limited WIFI, no TV, and rarely any mobile signal.
