Old Chapel Farm is in a secluded valley 1,000 feet above sea level in mid Wales. We are a working organic farm growing nearly all our own food and living off the land as much as possible.

We have two yurts (Welsh yurt and Black yurt) which are rented out together: the Welsh yurt is set alongside the Black yurt in a sheltered fenced paddock next to a wood. Both yurts have woodburning stoves.

Why not have a candlelit dinner on Merlin's converted bus, equipped with gas cooker and Rayburn? The Rayburn can be used for cooking or heating water for the shower on days when there is not enough sun to provide hot water. There is a fully kitted-out kitchen, wooden tables and chairs inside. At the end of the bus is a compost loo, solar shower and a small washroom. There are flushing toilets in the farm complex for those who don't like the idea of compost ones!

On our farm we have Jersey cows, Soay, Mouflon and Jacob sheep, a variety of poultry, extensive vegetable gardens, woodlands and alternative energy supplies.

Fresh produce is available on request. We make cheese and wines for our own use.

We have a team of volunteers from all over the world.

We run courses in prehistoric arts and traditional crafts like stone carving, flint knapping and basket making.

Come on a camping holiday with a difference here in a yurt at Old Chapel Farm!

By car:
We are right in the centre of Wales.

If you are coming from the south, you will go through Rhayader. From the town go north at the crossroads in the centre towards Llangurig. Turn right immediately, after the sports centre on the road to St Harmon. Continue 7 miles to Tylwch; take the first right 1/4 mile after the village, steeply up an unmarked road. At the top, turn right at the crossroads; fork right immediately. You will find the farm at the end of the road. Park by the chapel.

From the east or north, you will pass through Newtown and Llandinam. About 2 miles after Llandinam there is a large layby with a café caravan on the right. Turn opposite left signed Newchapel. At the crossroads on top of the hill turn left and immediately fork right. The farm is at the end of the road after about 1 mile. Park by the chapel.

If you are using satellite navigation, SY18 6JR will take you to the farm before ours - keep going to the end of the road. You can park by the chapel, or, if you have luggage, drive on past the graveyard and park in the farmyard.

By bus:
The closest bus stop is Llanidloes. National Express makes the trip here daily from London (about 1pm) via Birmingham. From Llanidloes we can pick you up. From Aberystwyth and its coastal connections, there are several buses daily to Llanidloes but local buses in mid-Wales do not run on Sundays.

By train:
Caersws is our nearest station. Connections from England come via Shrewsbury on the Aberystwyth line. We can pick up visitors from the station. There is no ticket office at Caersws (you can just buy them on the train) - but if you buy outward tickets online you have to drive 60 miles to pick them up before getting on the train! For guests coming via London there is a train from Euston Station every two hours.
