Camping

Ty Llwyd Fach

20 acres of loveliness in South Wales

Enjoy the beautiful, wild, natural fabulous outdoors in a safe, physical distant camping experience.

We have an incredible, wild, 20 acre farm in South Wales at the end of the M4 where wild Wales starts.  Over the last 8 years, we’ve been managing the land to increase diversity and it’s a beautiful, secluded spot full of wildlife.

We’re hiring out entire fields as a way to offer physically distanced camping.  It really is great value – open air loveliness and a back-to-nature opportunity.

We’ll welcome you (at a distance), direct you to your field and then more or less leave you to it!

We have parking space for up to 8 vehicles per booking

 

With more need for physical distancing and lots of folk wanting a break, it’s now more important than ever to offer a whole field as a separate, contained campsite.  

It’s £183 a night for a whole field 

(minimum 3 nights booking)

Lots of different fields:

Willow Circle Field

A huge circle of weeping willows around a large fire pit. Small paths around the field with mowed spaces which is being managed for wildlife.

  • 70+ meter walk from car parking space.
  • Reasonably level ground

Wildflower Meadow

A dynamic, beautiful open meadow. Paths and camping pitches mown. It’s mowed in August/September – a changeable landscape.  Some shaded areas.  BBQ area. 

  • Very close to parking spaces
  • Will take a small/medium sized live-in vehicle
  • Mown paths with tall grass elsewhere

The Orchard

A beautiful pear orchard with mown camping pitches and circles of wild flowers. A living willow dome – great for shade and for cozy campfires:

  • Close to parking spaces
  • Hot showers
  • Reasonably level ground

The Butterfly Meadow

Sometimes ponies grazing it. Rare, unimproved wildflower meadow.  Over the stream, it’s a distant, wild experience.  Lizards, rare butterflies, shady woodland. Small campfire beneath the stars.

  • 150+ meter walk across uneven ground and stream
  • Rough, tussocky ground

  • Washing – hot showers in the Orchard and courtyard.
  • Re-cycling and waste – please be considerate and take as much of your waste home with you as you can. Food waste bins provided.

  • How much? It’s £183 per night with a minimum 3 night booking.

 

  • How many people can come? It’s limited to 8 vehicles per booking and 20 people.

 

  • What about toilets? There are a number of comfortable compost toilets available.  It is essentially pooing in a bucket.  We use sawdust to cut out any smells and eventually use the compost on our fruit trees. We invite you to wee in our hedgerow or in the special designed hedgerow urinals.

 

  • What about bathing? There is a gass-powered, hot showers.

 

  • Water access? There’s a tap for each field for washing and drinking.

 

  • Are we allowed fires? Yes – there’s campfire places in loads of places around our farm. We will provide a barrow-load of logs and some kindling for you when you arrive and we have more wood available to buy if you need it.

 

  • What exactly is socially distant? The entire field is just for you. We will direct you to your parking spaces when you arrive, show you to the fields and more or less leave you to it.  We’ll be around if you need us and love giving guided tours of the land.  If you need things like electric/fridge/etc, then there may be other folk also wanting to use them – we will negotiate safe agreements. 

 

  • Can I park next to my tent? Not really, there’s often cars parked in the Wildflower meadow if it’s not been raining too much; there’s a chance you could park near where you camp there. In the other fields it’s a walk of about 100 meters meters. We have wheelbarrows if you need them.

 

  • Can I bring my camper-van/live-in vehicle? We can accommodate a camper van or two in the wildflower meadow.

 

  • Can I have access to a fridge/electricity/phone charger? There is a fridge/freezer, and plug sockets in one of the outbuildings – others may be using this building so normal distancing requirements are in place and will be clearly communicated.

 

  • Is there indoor space? There are dry outbuildings but we can’t promise that they won’t be used by others so distancing procedures to be agreed.

 

  • What if it rains? It’s Carmarthenshire so there may well be rain, there are various out-buildings but we can’t promise that others won’t have used them so agreement needed.

 

  • Can we have a party? It’s fine to have songs and booze around a campfire but we want you to respect the wildlife – including our neighbours across the valley – no broken glass and rubbish. Any loud electronic music or drumming needs to end by 9pm near our house and by 11pm at the Willow Circle.

 

  • Can I bring a dog? Well behaved dog (owners) welcome if you can guarantee they won’t go into another field because that’s annoying for animals. Please flick their poo into the hedgerow so it doesn’t upset future campers.

 

  • Can I bring kids? Yes, children welcome. You need to be aware that there are many risks around the farm, including deep water in the pond.
