Who we are
As a family growing up on a North Wales hill farm we experienced great freedom exploring the hills & mountains, cooking outdoors & sleeping under the stars. This fostered a deep connection with & respect for the natural world. After extensive travel in some of the most beautiful parts of the world we would like others to be able to share in the freedom & joy of an outdoor lifestyle in comfort; which also has minimal impact on the environment, preserving it as a natural haven for wildlife for future generations.
Wild flowers,barn owls & hares all make their home in this tranquil meadow making this the perfect place to unwind. Spend evenings around your own camp fire - we have a great range of outdoor cooking equipment if you fancy trying your hand at outdoor cooking or simply relax under the great dark skies which are perfect for star gazing.
For families there is plenty of space in the meadow for games.
