Both our own home An Gàrradh Mòr and Carrick Eriskay are now ‘on the market’ with Bell & Ingram.
Photos of the interior of our own house – An Gàrradh Mòr – here at the walled garden have appeared from time to time in these blog posts, but here’s a wee tour of the principal rooms, in no particular order.
This is a very significant milestone for us, in what has to date been a long and fraught journey without signposts or reassuring waymarks. We hope it becomes more straightforward as options narrow.
Quite possibly you’re thinking (you wouldn’t be the first) “Have they gone mad? From walled garden and croft plus holiday lets and a life unfettered by traffic and crowds, to a very ordinary and very modest bungalow on the main road from Lampeter to Camarthen …?!?!?!” Well, we’ve certainly asked ourselves the same, time and again ; and yet a very still small voice – and a very persistent one! – tells us that it’s time to let go of these things, to live and to travel through life more lightly. New opportunities – and challenges – that perhaps are better suited to our ages and circumstances, or the needs of our family – or, for that matter, the world about us, will unfold soon enough. And we will not have need of a large house, extensive outbuildings, or land.
