The Owner Says

The Yurt Farm was set-up in 2009 by Thea and Laurie on their organic family farm, twenty minutes from the sea. Four muddy children and a few changes later, we now run as an exclusive use site with just the Train Carriage for hire.  The Train Carriage sits in a hay meadow (formerly inhabited by 4 yurts, hence the name!) and is surrounded by woodland and very big starry sky at night.
Lined with western red cedar our train carriage smells amazing. There's a comfy king-sized organic mattress and a wood burner to keep you cosy, it can comfortably sleep 2 adults and 2 children. A small but well-equipped kitchen to cook up the eggs and vegetables from your welcome basket (all grown on the farm). Watch out for the blue tits that often nest in the door.
In your carriage you will find Welsh woollen sheets, firewood, organic teas and olive oil, salt and pepper, fresh flowers and candles, organic mattresses with fresh organic sheets – if you’d like to hire duvets and pillows please let us know.
Onsite we have two solar showers provide lots of hot water and on cloudy days we have gas to keep the temperature topped up. Our composting toilets are in a timber-framed hut built using green oak from our farm. They are probably the most beautiful toilets you’ll find!
We have a snug cabin with space for everyone. It has a pizza oven, well-equipped kitchen, wood-burning stove and a comfy sofa. Here you’ll find games, books, maps, outdoor cooking gear and a charging point.

Fire up the pizza oven in the evening for a woodsmoke infused feast.  Snuggle down in the super cosy Train Carriage as you watch the stars come out.  You might even see the owls and hares too!

About The Yurt Farm

Suitable For

Glamping only. Tents, campervans and caravans – no.

Nearby

One of the highlights of the area is watching the famous dolphins of Cardigan Bay. You can get a boat from nearby Newquay. Details of a whole raft of days out can be found in the cabin, including the Centre For Alternative Technology which is around an hour's drive away. Explore the National Trust farm Llanerchaeron 20 minutes away or visit their Dolaucothi Gold Mines where you can try your hand at panning for gold; useful if you’re planning an extravagant meal at the Harbourmaster Hotel!

Food & Drink

Our nearest pub The Hungry Ram, is only a 30 minute up the lane in the old village school.   They serve great food and drink to eat in or take away.  Just over 3 miles away is the traditional Rhos Yr Hafod Inn (01974 272644) at Cross Inn with the tiny windows, thick walls, crackling fires and decorated oak beams that all old pubs should have. Foodies will want to head a bit further to Aberaeron harbour and the delightful Harbourmaster Hotel (01545 570 755). For an open fire, great ale and food go to Y Talbot (01974 298208) in Tregaron.

A moment of sanity

We had a beautiful stay, comfortable, clean, warm. It was such a welcome break from the chaos of day to day life and gave us back a moment of sanity after a tough year. Just heaven really.

A wonderful, inspirational, long week in haven. We should have booked a longer stay!

What a find The Yurt Farm is! I really can not put into words how wonderful this break was. Thea and Laurie are an amazing couple, so inspirational. Their eco lifestyle, drive, creativity and attention to detail is reflected throughout this wonderful fairytale dream found in Wales. There are so many highlights to this break it would be impossible to list them all. Our son didn't want to leave and I have to agree, neither did I. Highlights for me, other then beautifully crafted accommodation and wonderful views, were the little things, making it even more special. Herbs planted near the carriage, for cooking. A bird feeder attracting tits and jay's next to the sink in the cabin, you watch whilst washing up. An array of outside cooking facilities and equipment, from a pizza oven, to large cast iron cooking pots and my son's favourite a waffle toaster, that we could use on the open fire. We felt no need to explore further a field. We will be booking again for next year, but next time 5 nights, as 3 nights wasn't nearly enough.

Response from The Yurt Farm

What a lovely surprise to read your glowing review. Thank you so much for enjoying our place and taking the time to switch off in the Train Carriage. It’s really nice to hear that you picked up on all the little details we have made. We’re looking forward to your next longer visit already :)

Fantastic post-lockdown Escape!

We were honoured to be the first ‘post-lockdown’ guests. We had a wonderful ‘no-compromise’ stay in the cosy Train Carriage with blissful hot showers after a day’s surfing, delicious take-away pepper squid from the ‘Harbourmaster’ In Aberaeron and hours of blissful solitude to read and relax. Just what the doctor ordered after months of too much time spent in front of a computer! Would heartily recommend!

Response from The Yurt Farm

What a lovely review. Thank you so much.
It was lovely to see you all relaxed and enjoying the field, cabin and carriage. So glad it was the perfect antidote you were looking for post lockdown.
I was jealous of your trips out to watch seaside sunsets, takeaways and dolphin spotting. You’ve inspired us to do more of that this summer.
Oh, and thanks for looking after the hens too!

Beautiful and peaceful

We have 3 children 8,12&14 - no WiFi, no electricity could have meant 3 upset bored kids but no, they made friends, built fires, created their own pizzas and even played cluedo and scrabble with their old folks. We all loved it. We properly relaxed, enjoyed each other’s company whilst taking in the wonderful scenery. We couldn’t have asked for more from Laurie and his super family.

Love, care and black currants

Excellent facilities and beautiful details throughout. So much love and care has gone into this campsite. We hired the two cuckoo yurts which worked for our family of 5 with 3 teenagers aged 14-19. Wonderful weekend and the highlight for me was the black currants, they have never tasted so good!
