Thanks for reading. And do browse around the rest of the Blog Pages….

Our garden at Gelli Uchaf opens most of the year, when we’re around, by appointment, for charity under the National Garden Scheme. Please see the Garden Overview page for visiting details, or by clicking here. 

This blog post, our home and garden are created and powered by using our own home generated electricity. When this is insufficient we are backed up by the supply and resources of Good Energy. In a short space of time they have become the UK’s leading supplier to home generators on the FIT scheme, and are unique in the UK in delivering all their competitively priced electricity from renewable sources.
