Staying at the Trust – Camping

Make a Booking

The Setting

Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust offers something different from a conventional campsite. We can offer semi-wild spaces for camping 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.
