The space

Gilfach is a traditional Welsh hill farm. There are sixty acres of pasture, ancient woodland, larch plantation and rough bracken and wetland meadows. It is home five British White cows and five horses. Guests are welcome to explore the farm and beyond along the rights of way leading from Gilfach’s land. There are wonderful views of Pen-y-Fan from the top of the farm and a stream flowing along the lower border, there is a mass flora and fauna to see with red kites and buzzards circling up and down the valley. The area’s Dark Sky status and the lack of light pollution makes Gilfach ideal for great stargazing.

Guest access

The Bell Tent sits in a secluded corner away from the main farm buildings. You have your own access and come and go as you please. There is a track to the tents that some vehicles could easily drive down – or park in the farmyard and walk about 100m to the camp area. The shower room and toilet (wet room) is in the main barn.

Interaction with guests

Hugh is the farm owner, lives in the main farm house opposite the cottage and works on the farm during the day so he is available most of the time and is happy for you to knock on the door if you have any queries or need some help.
