About us

Owners of Orchid Meadows holiday cottage and glamping site in West Wales

We are Steve and Lynn.


Steve has always been interested in nature. Ever since he was a child, when his mother took him for autumn walks along country lanes and put names to all the wild berries along the way. He worked for a National Park for a number of years and went on to become an environmental journalist. Meanwhile, he has been waiting 40 years to be able to fully put his training in farming and the environment into practice. 


Lynn shares his love of nature, although on walks she has her eyes skyward looking for birds while Steve’s eyes are firmly rooted on the ground looking at plants. Lynn brings an essential element to the table: baking that would put the Great British Bake Off to shame. Brought up on an upland sheep farm and trained in catering, she ran her own busy Yorkshire tearoom and bed and breakfast for almost 40 years, earning huge respect for her cakes and pastries. You can try her wares for yourself when you stay. 


After working together for some years in catering and visitor accommodation, Steve and Lynn have now embarked on a new challenge: Orchid Meadows. They are on a mission to increase the wildlife on their small-holding in West Wales and share it with those seeking outdoor holidays based on roaring campfires, great barbecues and twinkling lanterns.
