What's in a name.... Jonathan and Melissa Cox were looking for a lorry and saw this one for sale with their initials on it. J and M Cox - serendipity or what. It just had to be theirs.
The site is on a small traditional Welsh farm on the borders of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. The lorry, Branwen is sited along a hedge line in a 5-acre field of traditional pasture. This boho chic vintage lorry offers you a unique off-grid experience. The views down the Nant Colomendy are spectacular. You will be on your own there, under starlit skies by night offering tranquility and solitude.
There are red Kites nesting in the woods 200 metres away. A circular walk through our 8-acre wood will give you the chance to see badgers at night. The owners have a small flock of mountain sheep, and horses which you will see grazing in adjacent fields. Branwen has a rolling exhibition of their own artwork, with prints and originals for sale.
The lorry is heated by a wood-burning range made by a local blacksmith. Relax in splendid isolation and cook a pizza in the wood fired range. Adjacent to the beautiful lorry is a cabin with loo, shower and sink. Outside there is a picnic table, barbecue and open air sink for washing-up.
There is a Spar convenience store in the historic Village of Llanboidy 1.5 miles north, which is a brisk 20 minutes walk. Whitland 4 miles south has a Co-operative supermarket, butchers, baker, pharmacy and veg shop, tea rooms and a mainline station connecting to Carmarthen and Swansea/ Cardiff to the east and Haverfordwest, Tenby and Pembroke to the West.
Melissa and Jonathan are both artists. Tailor made tuition in sculpture, painting, and drawing at all levels may be available in their light and spacious studios if you are at all artistically inclined, and fancy combining your stay with some creative zest.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
