Beside all the cooking equipment, blankets etc in the accommodation we also have available for use by all our customers a log cabin which has a full size calor gas cooker with an oven, a woodburning stove (a cast iron Victorian cooking range), a power supply for mobile phones (mobile phone reception here is good), battery charging, etc, a sink for washing up, table and chairs and bench seating adorned with sheepskins and cushions.
All cooking equipment is supplied, i.e. pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, etc. Because we're 'off grid' we don't have fridges for keeping food cool but we do supply you with a cool box and will replenish ice packs daily. Meals are not included in the holiday but you can cook on an open fire (one basket of firewood included per day - any more than that is £3 a basket) outside the tipi/yurt/alachigh, on a barbeque or on calor gas. There are several good local restaurants - menus and directions available!
All you need to bring are sleeping bags, your own food, a towel for the shower and a torch. There are solar lights around the tipis, yurts and alachigh and LED lighting inside the accommodation. We have a good range of books covering all aspects of nature, from insects to trees and wild flowers, as well as books on the construction of tipis and yurts, nomadic structures and rustic retreats. There are also books on walks in the area - in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire and a very good supply of flyers giving details of tourist attractions in the area. Recycling facilities are also available. We've also created our own 'local trip advice!' folder in which customers have given their own views on local attractions, beaches etc.
Also on site there are two hot showers, a tiled compost loo (praised by many of our guests!) and a bog standard flush loo! All cleaning products used are environmentally friendly, and we supply eco friendly shampoo, conditioner, soap and clothes washing products. We have five bee hives and sell our own honey at £5.00 for a 1 lb jar and there are generally always eggs available from the many wandering chickens!
There is a play area for children located on the edge of woodland which has been much praised by parents and children alike! Click to view Gallery Page
