All cosied by the campfire at Naturebase

October 7th 2021

When the blackberries have been picked and the nights are drawing it is time to wind down and enjoy the glow of the stars in the dark sky and the glow of the roaring fire in the courtyard at Naturesbase.

The nights may be drawing in, but that doesn’t mean you have to. Getting all cosied up especially easy when you’ve got a campfire lounge around. Autumn is also a great opportunity to fire up the pizza oven with classic favourites or get inspired with new pizza creations. Whether it is toasting marsh mallows or toasting a glass, these evenings, wrapped in Welsh blankets to keep out the chill, are what memories are made of.

March 18th 2020

A wonderful hostel for groups looking for a retreat. Perhaps a painting retreat or even reflexology from Alison.

We are ideally set up for retreats. Set in 8 acres of tranquil meadows and woodlands the building has a large studio / sitting room and lots of break out spaces. We have hosted yoga Christian and reflexology retreats / training weekends. So come, breath the fresh air of Wales and admire the low light pollution for a few days. As far as places to retreat to it doesn’t get much better than this.

Naturbase Holidays, a group haven

March 16th 2020

Away from the hectic everyday. Naturebase provides wonderful accommodation in the heart of West Wales. Glamping in bell tents or luxuriating in the beautiful Ty Coed (woodland style) lodges you’re sure to have a lovely time.

Everything is  designed to maintain engagement with the ‘natural world’ ethos of naturesbase. Dining and kitchen areas are located on the outside veranda sheltered underneath a turf roof. The verandas face either the courtyard or flower rich farmland allowing guests to cook, eat, chat, relax whilst absorbing courtyard atmosphere or views across the meadows and beyond. Ideal for both families and groups of friends. Whilst parents have a lie in, children can help out and about with feeding the animals. They’re just waiting for you!
