Cae means Field in Welsh and this hut is on the corner of an old field in our 5 acre smallholding. We have, however, moved the fence to keep the sheep from invading your space – our free ranging hens might wander by though!
Cae has a wall-bed. This means that during the day the bed folds up to reveal two benches and a table, so you have a space to eat, sit and read, play Scrabble etc. The benches contain storage space where you will find blankets and cushions for outside plus a few books and games
There is a sweet little kitchen with a cooker, Belfast sink and a fridge with a small ice box section. You’ll find enough cutlery, crockery, glasses, pots and pans to prepare a meal for two. Cae has wine glasses and flutes for fizz if you’re celebrating something special. Washing up liquid, sponge and tea towels are also provided.
Cae is on mains water and electricity. It has bottled gas for the cooker and hot water. There is a wall-mounted electric heater in the main room and a heated towel rail in the bathroom to keep you warm and snug on chilly days.
There is an ensuite with shower, loo and basin. Towels, a bath mat, soap and a couple of loo rolls are provided.
A small wardrobe allows some storage space for you and there are lots of hooks for coats etc. You’ll find a couple of torches hanging up just inside the door.
Outside there is a bench and a firepit. A BBQ and cooking tools can be found in the little storage shed. A starter pack of firewood and charcoal are also in there.
You can park your car very close to Cae and there is a gravel path up to the steps, so you don’t need your wellies on arrival!
After a day getting back in touch with nature, maybe birdwatching at Cemlyn or South Stack, come back to Cae and brew up over the firepit.
