Ty Llwyd Fach is a campsite and farm focused on nurturing biodiversity, located near Cross Hands in South Wales. It is well located at the end of the M4.
Gwilym is a queer counsellor, trainer and community connector and has been living here for nearly a decade. He has been nurturing communities and wildlife to take root and thrive around the place. He loves doing guided tours around the land – maybe barefoot?
Take in the wildflower meadow, with mown paths; get lost in the willow circle field; cwtch up in the dome and splash in the stream. Lie in a hammock in the ancient woodland and look for lizards and a rare marsh fritillary butterfly.
We have been welcoming campers to share the delights the land has to offer for a few years now. We attract an eclectic bunch of campers whose interests vary from wilderness to queer spirit, but they all have one thing in common: they love the sense of freedom Ty Llwyd Fach allows its visitors.
