Reconnect with nature. This is your next luxury staycation
On the foothills of Betws Mountain, in the heart of Carmarthenshire’s (South Wales) rolling green countryside is your next luxury staycation. Guarded by trees, a solitary yurt stands in a private wild flower meadow… the sound of a trickling stream and the smell of a wood burning stove beckon you in.
Welcome to Gilfach Gower Farm Luxury Glamping and Sustainable Meat
Gilfach Gower has stood at this site since the 1600’s. In 2014 Sarah Gealy, a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, and her partner Fed Pereira, fell in love with its charm and became its custodians. For 8 years they’ve tended the land and restored it to a sustainable livestock farm with a small fold of Highland cattle, sheep, pygmy goats, rare breed pigs and chickens.
Covid changed Sarah’s outlook on life and she closed the chapter on her engineering career and took the farm on full time. The original Mongolian yurt is an important part of the farm’s diversification into luxury glamping and staycations. And as a guest you play an important role in keeping sustainable Welsh farming alive.
The yurt with hot tub is available to book all year round. We are adding a Shepherd’s Hut in summer 2022. Our own meat is available from our online butchers (see below). If you are booking your stay with us why not ask for one of our legendary Barbeque, Picnic or Breakfast Boxes, all our own meat… sizzling bacon, sausages and eggs freshly laid by the hens that morning.
Yurt with Hot Tub
Mongolian Yurt with Hot tub
Celebrating traditional crafts our yurt was handmade & hand painted in Mongolia. The large yurt can sleep four; the king size bed providing spacious luxury for two, plus there are two extra single beds. When not in use, one is hidden away and the other serves as a relaxing day bed. Eclectic upcycled furniture gives you total comfort and practicality. It is fully insulated and at its heart is the wood burning stove… using our own seasoned wood, it will have you tingling with warmth, even on a cold night. Blankets, luxurious bedding, towels and toiletries are all provided for. All you have to bring is a good book.

Coming soon! Waking up on crisp mornings, thermos flask in hand and Midge our Border Collie in close toe, Sarah heads out to build a large but cosy Shepherd’s Hut to sleep two. With wood burning stove, soft luxury textiles and beautifully furnished… You’ll sit on the balcony gazing at the bright purples and oranges of the sunset, whilst keeping a watchful eye on our sheep.
Sustainable & ethical Beef, Lamb, Pork
We love our animals. We are bound to them on a promise that we will look after them, keep them safe, nurture and provide for them. In return they give us exceptional meat. Our Highland cattle are grass fed and have access to trees and rough forage. We never rush our lamb and give them over a year to develop an intensely rich flavour (hogget). And our rare breed pigs live a glorious outdoor life in amongst dappled shade rooting for treats.

We are a very small business, only Sarah and people she can drag in to help… including her husband on the weekends. Expect a warm, personal welcome during your stay. We understand the importance of privacy and tranquillity, so although the farmhouse is on site, so that Sarah can be on hand for all your needs, the yurt is in its own wildflower field away from the farmhouse. Your very own private peaceful retreat.
Our glamping is open all year round. Even Christmas and New Year. Please feel free to enquire.
