Have a relaxing glamping time at , set in a quiet secluded valley with views of the Preseli Mountains with red kites and buzzards circling overhead,

The site is set in rural agricultural countryside, in Welsh-speaking West Wales and just 30 minutes from the Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire coastlines. It has handcrafted and prettily kitted out yurts homemade on the farm, sited in a landscaped field overlooking a pond and wooded valley and each with their own decking and seating area. There's also a shared firepit to sit around and soak up the peace (and the skies: this is top star gazing land).

Cooking and eating facilities are in a communal roundhouse kitchen with inside and outside seating areas. Toilet and wash/shower facilities are provided on site.

is set on a 56 acre organic farm – Fron Eglwys Fair – meaning the hill of St Mary's Church. The ruins of this fifteenth century church are a short walk from the farm buildings on the edge of the farmland.

Fron Farm was once a grange farm for nearby Whitland Abbey, and is in a south facing valley with views over to the Preseli Mountains. The farm nowadays has sheep, goats and chickens and a large organic vegetable garden and landscaped area. By arrangement you and the kids can watch the goats being milked and help collect the chickens' eggs.

Guests are also welcome to roam the farm's pastureland and woodlands (including the public footpath to the local pub...), and to wander the extensive and scenic gardens.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Absolutely loved staying here, the Roundhouse is beautifully designed and very cosy when the log burner is lit! There are lovely views and our boys had a fantastic time playing outside, loads of space and plenty to keep them occupied. They especially enjoyed the campfire and marshmallows! The owners are very welcoming and helpful, and the facilities very clean. Plenty to do in the surrounding area, and some lovely walks! Would love to visit again!

    we loved the location and with a yurt and a round house with all the facilities we need including the views it was the perfect getaway.
    the owners went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.
    The children collected Eggs from the chicken pen and helped milk the goat in which we could also buy.
    There are some lovely walks from this farm retreat and some fantastic scenery.
    We sat round the fire pit at night cooking marsh mallows under the stars, what more could you want.
