I promised you I’d come back today with the big reveal and some more information about our brand-new holding which is ours and belongs to us (still buzzing!)
The farm is just off the A483 outside the village of Llandybie (pronounced Thlan-di-bee-ay, approximately), about three miles north of Ammanford. It’s at the very top of a single track lane, and our only neighbours are the nice couple who sold us the land, so it’s very quiet but also not massively remote. It’s 40-odd acres of unimproved pasture and 12 acres of young mixed broadleaf woodland curled over the top of a small hill with a lovely view of the Brecons and surrounded by other farms (photos when I have more and better ones!) There’s a stream down one side of the land and most of the fields are mainly clover at the moment.
The house next door that belongs to the sellers is called Maesymeillion, which means “Cloverfield”(one for SF fans!), and we wanted a name that was similar but not so similar it would be confusing, and one that reflected the nature of the site.
So without further ado, we would like to welcome you all to Nant-y-Meillion – the place of stream and clover.
