Hello, we are Yvonne and David Gillett...
We are "second-lifers" having ditched our office jobs in Lancashire after near 3 decades and moved out to the country in beautiful Pembrokeshire, West Wales to have a better quality of life. We now have a little holiday cottage and a 6.5 acre garden.
We live in an old farmhouse and, when we are not decorating or gardening (!) and welcoming guests to our home, we love to travel. We really love wildlife and the natural world and care deeply about the planet.
When we moved to Bro Meigan 10 years ago we were new to gardening but had plenty of enthusiasm. During our time here we have developed and extended the gardens with wildlife in mind.
We are privileged to live in a stunning setting overlooking the Preseli Hills and we have a love for the environment and enjoy sharing it with other kindred spirits. Our aim has been to widen the appeal of the garden so that the whole experience of the location and its wildlife can be appreciated as much as the planting.
We promote the garden as somewhere peaceful to which visitors can retreat as an alternative to the beach and more boisterous venues. We invite you to leave the 21st Century behind as you enter, slow down, walk gently and talk softly and appreciate nature and wildlife in all its glory.
Whether you are visiting for just a few hours or staying longer in our holiday cottage, we hope our garden and its surroundings will stimulate your senses and that you will leave with your spirits uplifted.
