A beautiful spacious (21'diameter) yurt. Traditional, handpainted Mongolian with magnificent sweeping views across a fascinating organic farm and Welsh hills. Just 4 miles from a small market town but with a feeling of remoteness with no noise of traffic, no light polution, your own fire pit.
Cooking and dining in a wonderfully converted old school bus 50m down the hill and shared with other yurt dwellers. There is a compost loo there too, or you can use flush loos in the farmyard. The solar shower works when the sun is out. Otherwise you can heat it with a wood fired rayburn or share our lovely bathroom in the 17th ccentury house and bathe under the stars!
On our farm we have jersey house cows, soay and jacob sheep, bees, poultry, extensive vegetable gardens, woodlands and alternative energy supplies. 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 archaeological excavations, practice traditional crafts like stone carving and basket making.
We can pick up guests coming by public transport to the nearest station (Caersws) or bus stop (Llanidloes).
This yurt can be rented for short breaks (weekend Fri - Sun nights, midweek Mon-Thurs nights) Prices are higher from July 16 - Sept 3. It's definitely not a glamping site - comfortable enough but not luxorious, A place to bring your wellies and get a taste of life lived close to the land,

Old Chapel Farm is beautiful, set in rolling hills. The yurt opens onto a dramatic view across the little valley. A lot of effort had been put into decorating it sumptuously and we had a very comfortable stay. We were left to our own devices to enjoy a cosy few days but were made to feel extremely welcome. We especially appreciated Francine's generosity with the farm's herbs, vegetables and milk, which made candlelit dinners on the converted bus even more enjoyable.
I can't recommend it enough!
