Your hosts Jen and Dewi warmly welcome you to their House with No Nails.

This hand-crafted architectural masterpiece is the ultimate rural retreat for those seeking a relaxing escape from city life or simply a unique, BnB experience.

Jen  & Dewi’s House

The House with No nails was hand built as a traditional timber framed house. The name carved into one of the main beams, Pen Saer Loft, means Master Carpenters Barn
