The space
Hidden down a long track, this original farmhouse really is almost the middle of nowhere. Set in substantial grounds, there are good views from every window and a babbling brook runs right alongside it. The water comes from a nearby spring and the air is so clean you can see the Preseli Mountains 30 miles away.

You’ll enter via the porch where you can leave your coats and boots as well as meet the resident cat Chick Pea. You then come into a large and warm old farmhouse kitchen where the wood-fired Rayburn range cooker takes pride of place. There are slate worktops, exposed beams, quarry tiles with underfloor heating and all the facilities are discreet (dishwasher/microwave etc) so it’s just like walking into a period home. There’s even a NutriBullet so you can make great juices! At the other end of the kitchen is the dining area with a table for eight which is next to a beautiful fireplace. You’ll find all the crockery in the old dresser and the musically gifted can entertain you on the upright piano.

The next room is the lounge area - a cosy room with a wood-burning stove, a large sofa, vintage sofa bed, traditional games and a guitar. Then there’s a scullery which has a large fridge-freezer, Belfast sink, washing machine, a mangle and an ironing area. Behind that there’s a spacious downstairs toilet and wet-room which is suitable for people with reduced mobility.

Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms with period details, one of them has yet another fireplace.
A third bedroom has a triple bunk (double with single above) and a dressing up box. The fourth bedroom is reserved for pirates - it is seaside themed and the bed is a ship!
In the bathroom there's a luxurious cast-iron freestanding bath which two can soak in and see the sunset.

Throughout the house there are many old paintings of the surrounding area as well as vintage curiosities and a smiling Queen. Each room is painted in warm period colours using eco paints.

Towels and bedding are provided - as well as an initial basket of logs, extra baskets can be purchased cheaply.
There is five acres of grounds outside and spectacular walks are available from the door. In the meadow there’s a bonfire area and plenty of wood. On most days you can see the Milky Way.

In the outbuilding there’s a communal games room which includes a full sized pool table. The farmhouse has plenty of information on things to do in the area (sea, mountains, forests, lakes & castles!) but the best resource is the owner who will be happy to advise you on anything as he has lived in the area all his life.

This is a house notable for many reasons, it means Bramble Bush in English. You’re guaranteed to leave feeling healthy and with magical memories of your own!

Please note that during the current Covid pandemic, parties are not allowed. We all want to get back to normality, please stay safe and observe the government guidelines.

Guest access
You’ll have full access to the farmhouse, separate pool table and five acres of grounds. There is plenty of room and you’ll always be able to find a quiet space!

Other things to note
MEAT-FREE
This is a meat-free farmhouse - no meat, fish or poultry are allowed onsite and yes that includes barbecues!
Please use this as a chance to try some different plant-based food. Ask if you need inspiration or are missing a vital ingredient. On request I offer very tasty freshly-cooked meals and I can also organise arrival hampers and picnics - see below! If you are not seasoned veggie cooks then this will be the best meal you’ll find in the area. After a few days of this you should appreciate the lambs all the more and leave feeling refreshed and healthy!
If you really have a craving for meat then please support one of the many fine restaurants and pubs in the area.

SPECIAL REQUESTS
If you have any special requests, think you deserve a special deal or the dates you want don’t seem available then please message me through this site.

DATA, WATER AND DOGS
There is good 3G and 4G signal.
Water comes from a nearby spring - you don’t need bottled water.
Only well-behaved dogs are welcome and they must only stay in the main downstairs room of the house - but there’s loads of room outside. Dogs are an extra £20.

THE ENVIRONMENT
The farmhouse is powered by green energy and onsite solar panels. Please respect the environment and use the recycling and compost bins!

PRICING
When comparing this house with others please remember that this is a 19th century farmhouse that has been lovingly restored with amazing attention to detail. The house and separate cottage are below market value and subsidised by the owner.
Traditional methods were used throughout, the hot tub costs a fortune and most of the furniture is antique! Even the light switches are vintage. Dress up and be lord of the manor for a few days - in fact do whatever you like!

FAMILY FRIENDLY!
This house is perfect for large families or two smaller ones!

NEW - FULLY STOCKED LARDER
Take the worry out of veggie food shopping (esp frozen food) and save time. We’ll do a basic shop for you for £40 per day that you’re staying, you shouldn’t need much else.

NEW - FULLY INCLUSIVE VEGAN FOOD AVAILABLE!
I’m now offering vegan meals (lunch and supper) for £20 per person per day. If you’re not the best cooks or just can’t be bothered because you’re on holiday - ask me about this!

NEW - COURSES AVAILABLE AND LOOKING FOR COURSE ORGANISERS
This house is ideal for groups learning something - from yoga to music to team-building things. If you’re interested in running something in a tranquil and unusual environment then please message me.

THATCHED COTTAGE ALSO AVAILABLE!
If you’re looking for somewhere more intimate please see our separate listing for the nearby thatched cottage at https://abnb.me/mR3u4OSahOi

Location

Carmarthenshire, Wales, United Kingdom

This old farmhouse is hidden down a long track in the middle of an unspoilt part of Wales. It is a farming area where Welsh is spoken everywhere, everyone knows everyone and the pace of life is gentle. The only sounds are sheep bleating and birds tweeting. You can see mountains to the south and west, houses are harder to spot!
The charming town of Lampeter is 4 miles away and has all the provisions (and pubs!) you might need during your stay. The stunning and unspoilt Ceredigion coast is 20 miles away while the Brecon Beacons, Gower and Pembrokeshire are an hour away. Cyclists are spoilt for choice on the many quiet country lanes or dedicated mountain bike trails nearby. Bike washing facilities and tools are available.
Wildlife lovers will enjoy the red kites and buzzards circling overhead and the abundance of rabbits and wild flowers in the adjoining meadow.
Some good ideas for days out are in the welcome pack but if you’re looking for something specific (castles with caves?) just ask, I’ve lived here all my life.

* COVID-19 UPDATE - FARMHOUSE & COTTAGE ARE ACCEPTING BOOKINGS FROM EASTER - WITH FULL REFUND IN THE EVENT OF MORE LOCKDOWNS * Hi there! Croeso / Welcome to this wonderful part of Wales. As you’ll see below, I’ve got some spectacularly beautiful places to stay here which will reconnect you with a simpler way of life. As a lifelong vegan the one rule is that you are not allowed to eat meat or fish here. Why not? Because I stick to my beliefs and I know that smart people can rise to the challenge. To make it easier, I offer top-notch vegan meals (where you only pay what you think is fair!), a well specified kitchen and loads of free advice. In fact, more and more people are coming for my home-cooked meals - see the link below. If you’re in any doubt about visiting - just read the reviews on here, people really do have life-changing experiences every time. The area is outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt - the beaches here are like Devon or Cornwall but without the crowds! A realm means "a world - real or imagined" and this place really is magical. Choose from a thatched cottage which is ideal for couples or the Victorian farmhouse which makes for the perfect family getaway or birthday party location. There’s also glamping and camping options coming soon too - ideal for kids, dogs and retreats. If you’ve got a special request or perhaps a tight budget - message me and I’ll see what I can do. I am a very reasonable chap and lots of fun. I welcome everyone and will show you a side of Wales that most people never see! So that’s a bit about me - check out the properties below and start to make that dream countryside holiday a reality... x PLEASE FOLLOW MY INSTA & SOCIAL MEDIA FOR DEALS & INSPIRATION! @robinsrealmuk
