Two Welsh yurts
from £52 /night help
Yurt | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Standing in their own pretty grass paddock are two simple welsh built yurts of oak . The19ft white yurt is light and spacious with four single beds - for which bedding is provided. In addition there are two small mattresses or camp beds which can be pulled out from under the beds to provide extra sleeping space for young children. (Bring your own bedding for these )
Next to this yurt is a 12ft black yurt that has sleeping for two on two single mattresses. The two yurts are rented together making this an ideal family retreat. Both yurts have woodburning stoves (wood is provided at no extra cost). There is no electricity in either yurt so hanging lanterns and candles are provided. There is a small structure housing a compost loo and a small area with a gas stove for making tea or coffee but the cooking /dining area is a beautiful converted school bus 50m from the yurt. Here also are situated the solar shower and compost loo.
The yurts are in their own enclosed paddock next to a wood, a wonderful place to enjoy a camp fire and to cook your supper over the fire pit, watch the stars come out and the night roll in.
On our organic farm we have sheep and jersey house cows which provide us with milk to make our own cheese. Here you will be away from all sounds of traffic, light pollution etc and experience the timelessness of a life lived close to the land. You are free to roam across our fields, sit in our gardens, climb the hills, paddle in streams, help milk a cow.

"A positive experience but not returning."
We stayed here with our children 5 and 8, granny and the dog, for a weekend. The two welsh yurts were very comfortable and the welcome we got was also lovely with touches like cake, wine and beautiful… More

"Two well equipped yurts surrounded by beautiful woodland, bluebells and buttercups"
The two yurts are set in their own field next to beautiful woodland and surrounded by bluebells and buttercups. Both of them are very comfortable, the larger one easily accommodated myself, my partner and our two children and the smaller one my parents. Both yurts had wood burning stoves and we were really dry and cosy despite the sometimes damp weather. We were delighted to find that we also had our own compost toilet, trampoline and fire pit in the field with our yurts. Ideal for a family holiday as we had pretty much everything we needed in our field but also enjoyed sharing the facilities on Merlin's bus where we met the families from the other two yurts on the farm. Fran and her family and the volunteers on the farm couldn't have made us more welcome and we all enjoyed making cheese and butter and milking the Jersey cow.

"A little bit of heaven"
This is my second visit and I could return again and again. My children (8 & 10) spent four days without internet connection and loved it! Each yurt is private and with beautiful views, and Merlin's bus makes for a sociable place to eat and meet those in the other yurts. Milking the cows by hand and feeding the goats makes me grin. Taking a bath in the farmhouse under twinkling lights followed by sitting round an open fire staring at the stars with no light pollution is the most chilled out experience. With plenty of fire wood and comfortable yurts with wood burners, it doesn't matter what the weather's doing. Having flowers, homemade cake & wine in the yurt is the sort of touch you won't get anywhere else. This is not a place driven by money but by an ideal and is a great get-away for those who share a community spirit (or you just want to hide away for a weekend too). It's the perfect place just to be and enjoy the land. Your'e going to need to know how to light a Rayburn in the cooler months on the bus. But please ignore all that gushing review and don't book because I want to make sure there are yurts available for when I want to return ;). Practical point - if using sat nav to get there keeping going after sat nav tells you you've arrived. Drive on until the road runs out and turns in to a track and then turn left, park up and head to the farm house,
