...a Field of Dreams...
COVID-19 - We are limiting our bookings to ensure that the toilet and shower facilities are not crowded at any time and can be cleaned very regularly. There is handsanitiser everywhere and additional cleaning materials in all communal spaces, please help us keep you and yours safe!
What does this mean for you? Well, we generate all of our own electricity here on site. We use solar thermal, solar PV and biomass to heat the water for the showers and basins (yes, we have hot showers). Your cabin or shepherd hut will come with it's own solar PV set to charge phones and lanterns and has lighting fixed inside.
There are no electric hooks ups for tents. It's proper 'old fashioned' camping. Cook on a fire enjoy re-engaging with nature. We do get deer crossing the field at night and have buzzards and a visiting pair of red kites.
Are you perplexed by the pronunciation of this funny five-lettered term ‘Cwtch’ that rhymes with ‘butch’? If someone asked you for a ‘cwtch’, would you know what to do? If someone tried to ‘cwtch up’ to you, would you run away? If the sheer mention of the word evokes a series of potentially awkward situations, then it’s probably best to find out exactly what this popular Welsh word really means...The Urban Dictionary provides the following definition: ‘…Cwtch, which has long been a familiar word in the Welsh language, was given two definitions: noun (Welsh) 1. a cupboard or cubbyhole. 2. a cuddle or hug.’ However, this definition isn’t conclusive, because the wonderful thing about the Welsh word, ‘cwtch’, is that there’s no literal English translation. There are plenty of similar words, such as ‘cuddle’, ‘snuggle’ and ‘hug’, but none share quite the same affectionate sentiment as a ‘cwtch’.Ask a Welsh person what a ‘cwtch’ is and often they’ll give you a fond smile – because a cwtch is evocative – it has the magical quality of transporting someone back to the safety of their childhood. This corresponds with the word’s other meaning, which is a place to safely store things – if you give someone a cwtch, you're figuratively giving them a ‘safe place’. So, if someone asks you for a cwtch, your best bet is to jump right in (not into the cupboard though!)
