Orchid Meadows site rules

In order to ensure the comfort of everyone on the site as well as ourselves and our neighbours, there are a small number of do’s and don’ts. Obviously we have endeavoured to keep these to a minimum. After all, who likes rules?


As you enjoy your accommodation or explore the small-holding, please observe the following guidelines:

  • You are welcome to have people visit you during your stay. Just mention it, so we know.

  • Smoking is not permitted inside Tawny Cottage, Red Kite Yurt or Goldfinch Glampavan.

  • We are a working small-holding with livestock, including excitable hens, and also cats. For that reason, we cannot take dogs, however well behaved they might be. 

  • We operate a general quiet time between 11pm and 8am during which we ask everyone on the site to keep noise to a minimum.

  • Please respect the privacy and quiet enjoyment of others who might be using the site and also our neighbours.

  • When exploring the site, please stick to the mown pathways. In particular, be aware there are steep drops into the stream ravine at the lower end of Southern Bottoms and deep bogs in Cors Caron Fach.

  • Please do not pick any flowers or plants on the site.

  • Please respect any livestock on the small-holding and be aware of any risks to your safety they may present. Please do not feed the cattle or hens.

  • Please burn only the wood provided by Orchid Meadows. Please do not forage for firewood on the site because dead wood is often left to rot down for nature. You are welcome to bring your own charcoal, however.

  • Please take care with all fires and naked flames.

  • Familiarise yourself with any fire precautions, responses or evacuation procedures as detailed on notices.

  • If you accidentally break anything, please do let us know so we can replace it.

  • Please separate out your waste and recycle and use the bins provided in your field kitchen.

  • We supply a full range of quality eco-toiletries made locally. These are especially kind to our septic tank. We would prefer you to rely on these.

  • Before you leave, please ensure you have settled all your honesty box bills.

  • As you go, please ensure you have all your personal belongings with you. Please also clear fridges and cupboards of any foodstuffs. 

Thank you for following these guidelines!
