It’s really important to us to support the local economy and be part of the community here, and we’re so proud to have been able to use many great local suppliers in developing Brechfa Glamping and our farm. For example we worked in partnership with West Wales Willow to install a green screen along our boundary – benefitting nature and giving a beautiful soft green edge to the site, which will also provide us with biofuel in due course. We’re so fortunate that our site is walkable to friendly, picturesque Brechfa village, with all its amenities including an excellent shop run by the community itself and an acclaimed pub and restaurant which we always encourage our guests to enjoy.
The Gers are locally built in Carmarthenshire and traditionally handcrafted from locally sourced wood.
In Harmony with Nature
We are deeply committed to nature and the environment here at Brechfa Glamping; we work with the wildlife and encourage it where possible. Tirbach farm is fortunate to have a wide variety of different habitats - and as a result a diverse range of wildlife is at home here. By the river in the glamping field we have a wildlife habitat area where different grasses and flowers grow naturally, and we’ve installed a bug hotel, hedgehog house, and several bird nesting boxes to encourage more wild visitors.
It’s also important to use to think about resources and recycling, so we’ve installed two waterless toilets on site and encourage our guests to make use of the recycling facilities to ensure our collective footprint is as light as possible.
