Laurie, Thea, Mossy, Wren and Sylvan invite you to come and stay in a yurt or train carriage on a working organic family farm in West Wales. The Train Carriage is perfect for a couple or small family.

Wake up to the sound of birdsong and your kettle whistling on a woodburning stove. Watch red kites soar over the Cambrian Mountains while your children collect freshly laid eggs. Explore country lanes, walk in the hills, and take refreshing swims off the stunning beach of Cardigan Bay. Return to the delicious smells of organic meat and vegetables from the farm shop cooking over the campfire.

This converted old train carriage is ideal for a snug little hideaway for holiday breaks. It is perfect for couples and small families. It has a big raised bed with space underneath for 2 roll mats. A Devonshire wood burning stove and sheepswool insulation will keep you cosy. Inside there is a small kitchen area, table and chairs. The carriage is clad with locally sourced wood and has a turf roof andis well hidden amongst our yurts in a peaceful spot with an amazing view out over the Cambrian mountains.
