Jemima is a lovingly restored 1958 touring caravan offering dog friendly, adult only accommodation. She has been completely refurbished with a mix of rustic and pretty vintage charm. She has her own Secret Garden - a private woodland area with seating and dining furniture. A 'window' has been cut into the hedge, which looks out over the spectacular Aeron Valley views. At night the garden is lit by fairy lights,  creating a truly romantic setting. Guests staying in Jemima also have access to the main gardens where you will find bbq facilities, picnic tables, sun loungers and even a paddling pool and shaded outdoor beds for your dog/s.

Inside Jemima you will find a fixed double bed, wardrobe, a large sofa, electric cooker with oven and 2 hotplates, and a mini fridge/freezer. Outside, the caravan benefits from quaint bunting, potted herbs which you are free to use and steps to the front door.

Alpaca and Donkey Experiences are run on site and available for booking during your stay. All Experiences are private and exclusive and advance booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. 

Guests staying in Jemima have exclusive access to the very spacious basement level Bar and Movie Room in the main house. A large, fully stocked bar which is run on an Honesty System and there is a separate TV Room, with large screen TV, DVD player and surround sound speakers. Snuggle up on the big comfy sofa with a drink from the bar and a movie from the free DVD library.  Dogs are welcome in these rooms.

A private bathroom with electric shower, wash basin and wc is directly opposite in the main house. Guests also have access to the boot room, great for storing walking boots coats etc., as well as the laundry room which has washing, drying and ironing facilities as well as a microwave, toaster, kettle, freezer and washing up facilities. 

On arrival you will be treated to a welcome box of milk, orange juice, homemade bread and freshly laid duck and chicken eggs. A selection of cereals are also on offer, as well as tea, coffee (cafetiere and instant) and sugar.

The caravan is heated and available all year round and benefits from an electric blanket on the bed, hot water bottles and faux fur throws to keep you extra cosy in those colder months.  Although guests have told us that the heater keeps Jemima perfectly cosy without the need for these extras, it's always nice to snuggle up with a fur throw.

Locally there is plenty to do with numerous dog friendly beaches (and the Wales Coast Path) within a 30 minute drive, perfect for blowing away all the strains and stresses of everyday life. The Cors Caron Nature Reserve offers a beautiful circular riverside walk, whilst at Hafod you can enjoy dramatic woodland walks with waterfalls. The Cambrian Mountains are a 20 minute drive away, where you will find hidden lakes, waterfalls, forests, rivers and breathtaking views. Be sure to pack your hiking boots if you wish to take advantage of all this surrounding beauty. 

2 Dogs are welcome in the caravan and a snuggly bed is provided in Pooch Corner - a cosy area inside Jemima.
