Derwen (Oak in Welsh) is the 4th 16ft Yurt and sits in its own clearing under an oak tree on a timber deck overlooking the Valley to the west. It has its own compost toilet accessed via a bridge from the deck with steps down to a cooking area with a small gas stove and cold water supply. The nearest showers are by the Tipi or down by the Old Dairy.
Bryn Helyg (sleeps 4) is of the same style and quality as the existing three yurts on Penybanc Farm, but slightly larger - 18ft 6inches rather than 16ft. It lives at the top of our tipi flower meadow, adjacent to the willow plantation, about 300 metres from the farmyard buildings.

The shepherds' hut loo and shower block is nearby with 2 female loos, one male loo and a male and female showers. Conventional showers are also to be found in the farmyard.
Converted from a wood and tin clad large caravan, the Hop Shack is light, simply furnished and well-insulated and has electricity and an efficient wood burner. It has a lovely wooden veranda with great views and is located beyond the farm buildings looking up the hill, with sight of garden, meadow and willow plantation.
Our newly renovated 1964 Leyland Titan Double Decker Bus sits in a quiet spot that overlooks the valley. The bus has been brought back to its original livery on the outside and accommodates up to 6 people. It has two double bedrooms with toilets and separate access upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs behind the driversí cabin.
Evening vegetarian meals can be provided if you wish to take a break from self-catering along with beauty and holistic treatments in a dedicated space next to the Old Dairy function room. The Old Dairy is the perfect venue for family parties and special celebrations.
