The Owner Says

New for 2017, is our horse lorry conversion, 'Rumenco'. This self-contained unit, which sleeps two, is private from the main camping field and accessed via an ancient bluebell wooded lane. The old horsebox retains many original features but has been made comfortable for campers with a double bed and carpets in the rear part of the cab along with a double glazed window and its own  raised "tail gate" deck over looking the lower organic veg garden, wild meadows, grassland fields of sheep and cows and the Preseli hills.

The driver's cab, has been refurbished, and features its own WC and a kitchenette area with a two-ring gas hob and sink. A wood burner, solar lighting and tea lights help to create ambiance and, along with the remaining original features, help recall its past equestrian use and give it a gypsy or canal boat feel. It offers a magical escape for the would-be equestrian, or a romantic break set in a private wildlife area.

Additional facilities include:

A porch area for storage, footwear/wet coats

Access from the woodland bark path, to the covered stairs (no need to clamber in to the cab!)

A fire pit and outdoor seating area, for summer or winter evenings around the fire  over looking the Preselis and big clear night skies.

Basic bedding, kitchen items, and first lot of logs, tea lights included

A hot water shower, for use by glamping customers only (horse box and two cabins) with the campsite having own seasonal facilities
