The word hafod is a Welsh word referring to the seasonal cycle of transhumance - the movement of livestock and people from a lowland winter pasture at the main residence to a higher summer pasture from roughly May through October.

this is a true time capsule hidden from view a hard life for the young brother and sister of the family in a 2 bedroom cottage bereft of a bathroom bereft of an inside toilet
They shared a bedroom crammed still with their boys and girls toys but notice the walls of the bedroom: Stone; no insulation no double glazing no central heating
just an open fire place in their bedroom to give heat through the cold hard winter of this sea facing farm cottage
what memories this place must hold
