Listen:- Homes Under The Hammer host Martin Roberts on GTFM

Written by on 15th February 2024

On Thursday’s Community Link Show with Haydn Price, his special guest was BBC Homes Under The Hammer host, Martin Roberts, who has switched roles from presenter to renovator after he bought not one but two properties to renovate himself.
One a farmhouse airbnb, the second, is a village hotel and pub, a property he says he bought by accident. Both are located here in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
Despite Martin’s busy schedule filming he can often be seen on the pavements of the Rhondda – a place he now refers to as his second home.
Today he is knee deep in architectural drawings and rubble in a renovation project that will see the Hendrewen transformed into a village hub in Blaencwm.
During the renovation young adults from the Rhondda have been given an opportunity of working with Martin to gain valuable skills and knowledge in the construction industry, working towards a formal qualification and apprenticeship scheme, Martin will be dragging himself away from the bricks, beams and 150 miles of electricity cable needed for the project – to speak to Haydn on today’s Community Link.
