Meet the team as cartoons

Posted by on 3 Nov 2015 in Blog, Gallery | 0 comments

We have had a wonderful season, made even more special by the volunteers that have stayed with us to help in the garden, so a big thank you to them. Two of those volunteers sent us some drawings they did of us, and we wanted to share them. A big thank you to Estelle and Anaelle for their lovely gift and beautiful art work and making us all look so youthful – although Jerome looks far younger than I do in the pics which can’t be right! By the way, he’s the one with the sword 🙂...

Trefacwn – biggest and best veg in St Davids?

Posted by on 3 Jan 2015 in Blog, Gallery | 0 comments

Whilst making the challenge of biggest and best veg in St Davids, I think we can safely say that’s a bigger than the average beetroot. Having said that, a lot of our veg got to be pretty big, should have seen the fennel – must be all that love and care, or, pretty good manure. We are continuing to perfect our growing and choosing what we grow, and Eilan has now taken up the mantel and will be leading the way in the garden. Eilan is hoping to expand our growing this year with the hope of offering more home grown produce to our guests. I have a feeling there will be some unusual veg going in there too. Happy New Year to...

Porthgain World Cup

Posted by on 30 Aug 2013 in Blog, Featured, Gallery | 0 comments

Another great year for Porthgain World Cup (Pembrokeshire). A bit early this year (August 18th), which meant some usual suspects were unable to submit a team, Trefacwn included. Hopefully next year we will be back in the game. Luckily the rain stopped just in time and Porthgain World Cup had sunshine all day. Some tense moments in the quarter finals, with two games going to penalty shootout. The most exciting match (in my opinion) was Mexico & Scotland. Mexico dominated in the first half, taking a 2 goal lead into the second half. With 50 seconds to go Mexico gave away a penalty to Scotland, which gave Scotland renewed hope. In the remaining 40 seconds Scotland managed to pull an equaliser. Then with 8 seconds of the match left, Scotland pulled it out of the bag and into the...

Meditation Hut – planning outcome

Posted by on 12 Jul 2013 in Blog, Featured, Gallery | 1 comment

As many of you will already know, we previously failed to get retrospective planning for the meditation hut and went to appeal. After an independent hearing and a site visit, with the opportunity for both sides to explain their views, we have now been granted planning and the Hut stays! We would like to thank our local planning officers for their due diligence, imagine what our countryside would be without some form of governance, and hope that more structures like this are permitted in appropriate places....

Garlic harvest

Posted by on 6 Jul 2013 in Blog, Gallery | 0 comments

The wild garlic was scrummy this year, but as it’s finished, we’ve been harvesting our planted bulbs. Fresh garlic bulbs in salads have been a plenty and now Karen’s harvested what garlic was left and drying in the court yard ready for storing. And yes, you heard right, it’s sunny enough at Trefacwn to dry herbs!   Here’s Karen harvesting (bottom left, hard at it), and look how well everything is growing:...

Jackdaw stops work!

Posted by on 7 May 2013 in Blog, Featured, Gallery | 0 comments

Well that was a surprise – Whilst Tom was stripping the Laundry roof, he came across a Jackdaw nest with eggs in it. We have started the renovation of the Laundry by first putting on a new roof, unfortunately we didn’t know we had guests! Luckily we were able to cover them back up quickly and the Jackdaws didn’t seem to be put off . So after a few days, Tom (with help from the kids) managed to remove the temporary cover, lay new plywood over the nest, and all is well. The Jackdaws are in and out still tending their...
