Daisy Yurt details
Daisy is located in the corner of the Oxide Daisy camping field which is beautiful in spring and summer
You have electricity in this yurt for lighting and charging phones. Please don’t use hair dryers or any other high-wattage appliances as we have a minimal amount of power here.
You can drive to this Yurt. Come out of our main yard- turn right onto the lane- take the second right into the camping field (the first right is our Car park). When in the camping field you’ll see the Yurt in the far corner of the field. Follow the path and you are welcome to park just next to the Yurt.
Our water is from our farm borehole. It’s non-chlorinated and great to drink. It is tested and approved by Carmarthenshire County Council yearly.
You can drink the water that comes out of the outdoor sink tap, in front of the curved roofed toilet/shower block in the middle at the bottom of the field (in fact, all water from taps onsite is drinkable!).
Your outdoor kitchen has a gas burner hob and all the gubbins needed to cook with and eat off.
When using the hob, Check the gas bottle is on (righty tighty- lefty loosey!) Turn the knobs on the gas burner to the left and light using a match. Please remember to turn off after use.
You have a cool box for your fridge. You’ll find some ice packs in there. You can swop these for more during your stay.. just come down to the office and ask a member of staff.
You have a BBQ outside for your use. If you need charcoal for this.. the garage at the top of the road is the closest place to purchase it (turn right onto the lane- when coming out of the camping field- drive up to the top/main road. At the T junction turn left and the garage is on your left a little way down.
There is a wood burner for warmth with a basket of wood. The logs and kindling for this are cut to the appropriate size for the small yet powerful burners we have.
If you require firelighters/ kindling of logs- just let us know.
Below are 8 helpful pointers on how to light a fire…
1/ Place a log or two in the bottom of the Fire
2/ On top of this build a stack of 6-8 softwood kindling sticks
3/ Then place a natural fire lighter inside
4/ Fully open the air control as this will maximise the supply of oxygen in the wood burner needed to get the fire going.
5/ Light the fire lighter and close the door but leave it slightly a jar. This helps to heat the chimney flue and burn hot and clean. Smoke may come out of the fire, until the chimney has warmed up.
6/ Once the fire is burning well close the door and reduce the air intake
7/ Re-fuel little and often
8/ Every time a log is added open the air control again until the fire is burning well and then return the control to normal
Toilets and shower
Your closest toilets and warm showers are located in the curved roof shepherd’s hut a very short walk away!
Bins and recycling
There is a bin for landfill waste (with a black bag) and a bin (with a blue bag) for recycling. You’ll find a bin for compostable waste and green bags for this (no meat in here please). Pop meat in a small green bag, and then in the black sack provided.
Recycling in Carmarthenshire is all the usual suspects but not glass. Leave the glass in a crate please or take it to the glass recycling bank, in our cacar park
If you have any questions throughout your time here- just come down to the yard/ office and have a chat with us.
We hope you have a relaxing stay!
