Now that Dave has a proper workshop to potter around in we can concentrate on converting the end of the barn to the little micropub that has given us the name for our site. Named after the three smashing dogs in our family, The Three Spaniels will be a cosy, sociable space for guests and locals alike to sup real ales or wine and swap tales of exploration and adventure. There’ll be a woodburner to keep it toasty in the winter (or the summer, this is Wales after all 😊 ) and we’re hoping to source some delicious local cheeses and chutneys in case our guests are feeling peckish. We hope to have ‘The Spaniels’ open by the end of Summer 2019 – watch this space!
Once the pub is up and running we’re planning to convert a double decker bus to be our second glamping pod. The bus will be sited in it’s own field a little further up the hill to benefit from the fantastic views up there. The top deck will house an open plan kitchen/diner and living space, opening out onto a upper deck area with a hot tub. Downstairs will have a king size double bedroom, bunk rooms for 2 or 3 and a shower and loo. The bus, like the hut, will have it’s own enclosed garden so guests can relax in the knowledge the kids or the dogs won’t go too far.
