General

  • Beautiful rural off grid site on 112 acre working sheep hill farm.
  • 10 minutes from community shop & pub. 15 minutes to Llandeilo town.
  • Firepits with logs available on site.

The Shepherd's Rest is a rural, off-grid and adults-only site on a 112-acre working sheep hill farm, to the west of the Brecon Beacons National Park and half an hour’s drive from Carmarthen.

Completely off grid and with no electricity supply, the farm is a thriving wildlife and birdwatching haven with over 100 nest boxes and home to owls, kites, buzzards, ravens, woodpeckers and many more. By night, the skies here are clear for stargazing; barbecues are allowed.

Stays are in the site meadows with streams, pools and a pond surrounded by hedgerows and native trees. Parking is in the first field and the site team can help guests move their kit.

Amenities include a toilet pop-up tent, a shower, ice pack freezing and recycling facilities. Llandeilo town and its shops, eateries and two supermarkets is 15 minutes’ drive away.

Great shepherd's hut for getting back to basics, really friendly owner08/30/2019

    The peace and quiet was amazing. If you're looking for back to basics, total peace and quiet with no distractions, this is for you. Not rated child friendliness as it was just my dog and I and not rated wifi as not available.

    Disliked: 

    Having to leave early due to a family emergency!

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to do a review given your emergency and thank you for your kind comments. We are really happy that you enjoyed your stay in the Shepherds Hut. Hope everything is ok now.
