forest-garden-and-barn.jpgThe Setting

Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust offers something different from a conventional campsite. We can offer semi-wild spaces for camping, the opportunity to hire a small caravan or yurt and ecological facilities.

The number of people who can camp at anyone time is limited, so you will be able to enjoy space, peace and quiet. It is a unique opportunity to stay at a working example of sustainable living.
