"From the outside, this is a farmhouse a child would draw: stout as a cottage loaf with a flour-white face and proud chimneys. Inside, though, it has all the swish of a Scandi ski lodge, with its pine cladding and blankets"

James’ Ty fforest story

'It was haunted by the spirit of the unloved,' says owner and all-round creative James Lynch, who exorcised it with partner Sian, salvaging worn stair treads and lintels, a salting basin and smoking hooks, then repointing with lime and bees-waxing the plaster walls. A Peter Doig painting hangs in one bedroom; some chairs are made with planks painted by Hirst, Emin and others, a flashback to Lynch's Hoxton past.

Doughty Presbyterian pews can be arranged into a cinema in the sitting room and the big-hearted kitchen/dining space is set around an inglenook you could herd sheep into. The children's bunk room is long and narrow like a ship's cabin, made for holing up in for 'no adults allowed' gatherings; the four bedrooms feel just as tucked away, each with its own bathroom - the front ones have Miss Marple views of the village church.
