Danyfan Carriage is an old railway carriage. It’s been lovingly restored using, where possible, local materials.
It has a beautifully comfortable bed, a wood burning stove, gas hob and grill and a table and chairs. It is part painted and part original wood, with art and botanical illustrations on the walls.
The carriage is in a small wood just next to a little stream. It has views up to the mountains- the Brecon Beacons. It has a sunny deck and a little garden with a fire pit for bbqs.
A few metres from the carriage is a compost loo, a shower (with hot water), and a Belfast sink.
We leave a cool box with bacon, milk and butter. Stevie makes a loaf of his sourdough bread, I make brownies. The guests are welcome to take eggs from our three hens who share the field with the carriage.

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.
