We have a selection of barns, bell tents, lawns, the bunkhouse and a whole 9 acre field to play with. So there’s plenty of scope for your imagination to run wild for your special day.
Depending on the time of year, our bell tent and bunkhouse accommodation can sleep up to 68. We also have connections with other nearby bed & breakfast and self-catering providers, if you need more space or perhaps have guests who would prefer more traditional accommodation.
We\’re also lucky enough to have St Mary’s Church just across the road from us! It is thought to date back to 1290. It was lovingly restored after being derelict for around 20 years from the 1970’s. The graceful stone spire was installed in 1855. Inside, the decoration is simple with whitewashed walls and a mix of plain & stained glass windows – perfect for stamping your own style. With its ecumenical status, you’re not only in control of the décor but also free to choose the wedding ceremony of your dreams.
After leaving the church, lead your guests directly to your reception on foot: our field is a just a few steps away & accessed through a dedicated gate. With over 9 acres to play with, there’s plenty of room for a generous marquee and plenty of camping. We can even arrange a full glamping site and mini-festival, complete with local street food vendors and a range of local musical talent. Whatever your requirements, there’s a good chance we’ll be able to recommend the local suppliers you need.

There’s quite a large wider [venue name removed] family, all dedicated to making your stay the best we can. But our core team is quite small: just mum & daughter Jane and Hannah.
Staying at [venue name removed], Wales means being one of the family. But like most families there are a few Camp Rules to make sure that everybody gets the most out of their visit:
– Let us know if there’s anything you need. We usually also have various things you can borrow, buy or just have. And if there’s anything wrong we’ll do our best to get things fixed ASAP. We’d much rather get things sorted so you can get on with enjoying yourself
– If you’ve borrowed something from the barn, please return it in the same state. And please put things back where you found them. Always accompany any children who aren’t old enough to follow the rules
– We’re a small & intimate site, and noise travels easily. We’d appreciate it if you kept the noise to a minimum between 10pm and 8am, especially if there are any families staying with small children
– We don’t allow amplified music. Please leave your bluetooth speakers at home. But feel free to bring an acoustic guitar to quietly strum around the campfire
– We’re close to Castlemartin Range, which hosts live tank training exercises. Firing times vary, but they usually take a holiday in August. You may experience noise during the day, usually only between 9am to 5pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays are often night firing, which can be very exciting to watch. Flares and tracer fire give us a firework display twice a week
– Broken a glass? Don’t worry, we understand that accidents happen. We have spares of pretty much all the equipment in the tents and the bunkhouse, ready to swap over as needed. But do let us know, so that we can make sure you, and the next guests, can enjoy all the facilities in full working order
– Please take care when using the trampoline or other facilities. We can’t take responsibility for any acrobatics. We also ask that you take off your shoes before using the trampoline. Max 2 adults at a time. Please be considerate of other guests: don’t use the trampoline when others are likely to be asleep (between 10pm and 8am)
– Only light fires in the dedicated campfire bowls. Please empty ash into the metal buckets provided, to minimise the risk of fire
– Don’t leave food outside: our foxes are wily and will happily steal your breakfast bacon. They’ve even been known to make off with bags of fresh ground coffee
– Please read the booking terms. As on any holiday, we recommend that you take out travel insurance in case you have to cancel your trip at short notice. We’ll always do what we can to re-book your dates, but we can’t promise
– If we’ve met or surpassed your expectations, we’d really, really appreciate a lovely 5 star review. You can review us on our website, Facebook and/or Trip Advisor. If we haven’t, refer to Number 1 and let us fix any problems as soon as possible
If you’re in a bell tent:
– Unlike the bunkhouse, lovely snug duvets, pillows and other bedding is provided. You’ll still need to bring your own towels though
– No muddy boots in the tents. Please bring flip flops or something similar. You’ll need something easy to slip on to pop to the loo in the middle of the night
– Without power for the hoover, it’s hard to clean the floors in the bell tents. It takes a long time to clean and changeover each tent when you leave. We’d appreciate it if you continued to keep gravel & mud out of the tents even when collecting luggage
– Keep zips tightly closed in wet weather as much as possible; the tents can take a while to dry out if rain gets in
– Please keep muddy paws, and feet, off the bedlinen. The mud at [venue name removed] stains easily. And if we can’t get the mud out, we have to replace the linen. No matter how well washed we promise they are, you wouldn’t want to sleep in stain sheets.
– We take great care to keep the compost loos smelling sweet and operating well, please be careful about what goes down them. No baby wipes, condoms, nappies, sanitary products, plastic bags or anything else that isn’t biodegradable. You can collect more of the special toilet paper and sawdust from the barn
If you’re in the bunkhouse:
– No muddy boots in the bedroom or shower, please
– It’s a bunkhouse, so you’ll need to bring sleeping bags or other bedding as well as your own towels. Pillows are provided
– The bunkhouse will usually be ready for you to settle into as soon as you arrive, but in order to make sure we’re ready for the next party you will be expected to help out by stripping beds & emptying bins before you go
– Watch your head! The door into the Bunkhouse is traditional Welsh – in other words, very low but wide. Please be careful
– The bunkhouse is not suitable for infants, children or dogs. Please book a bell tent instead
– Like the rest of the farm, the waste water system is a venerable age and needs to be treated a bit gently. Help us minimise future problems by being careful about things that go down the drains, especially the loos. No baby wipes, condoms, nappies, sanitary products or anything else that isn’t biodegradable. You can collect more of the special toilet paper from the barn
Fab time at [venue name removed], Jane and Hannah were super helpful and knowledgeable. Bell tents were lovely and the kitchen was well stocked. Kids loved the trampoline and swing and all the games. Amazing beaches near by and the sun shone – perfect glamping!
Every year a small group of us visit Wales for a holiday to escape London. In the 5 years that we have done this, [venue name removed] was by far the best place we have stayed.
Jane and Hannah were fantastic hosts from start to finish, greeting us with Jack the dog and with trollies to wheel our stuff from the car to the tents. The path was lit with solar lanterns all the way and is easily accessible for anyone.
The facilities were lovely, the shower/ bathroom/ kitchen units are simply but efficiently put together. The tents are roomy, clean and most importantly comfy! There were 8 of us in each tent and we didn’t feel squashed for room at all.
Little additions like a candle chandelier, marshmallows, filter coffee, small mirrors, blankets and beautiful picnic baskets made it even more enjoyable.
We spent the evening cooking over the camp fire, and made breakfast in the morning on the hob.
Every little detail is thought of and is the perfect definition of Glamping. All the joy of the outdoors with none of the stress!
Jane and Hannah gave us some great advice on places to go in the area, they are a wealth of knowledge, and their balance of leaving us to get on with our stay and being around when we needed help was perfect.
