The one-bedroom Pembrokeshire roundhouse blends into its idyllic valley surroundings and features a Hobbit hole-like conical roof covered in grass. It was built 11 years ago in a low impact way using the One Planet Development planning policy and offers an eco lifestyle that respects nature and wildlife.
Inside the Llanycefn home, salvaged materials and fittings meet rustic joinery, creating a cosy, handcrafted abode. It has an exposed timber frame with mud walls and sits under a slated, domed roof, hung with woven baskets and kitchen utensils. A bedroom nook lies on the mezzanine while light pours through the arched glazed openings that capture wild foliage and sky views.
Bryn Y Blodau, which translates into English as Flower Hill, has its own water supply and solar panels for electricity. Scattered over the off-grid property’s four acres are livestock shelters, an off-grid bathroom, a decked sun terrace, fruit trees and productive growing spaces, providing the owners with food and an income stream.
