reconnect with nature, reconnect with yourself
Far from the roar of urban life, listen for a moment to the bustle of the hedgerow, the songs of the birds and the trickling of the stream. Sit still, become again a part of the nature that surrounds you and use all your senses to reconnect: the smell of the leaves, the dappled light of the trees, the texture of the bark. Here a squirrel darts along the branches; there a blackbird sings it’s liquid song; a bee murmurs past on its important mission both to replenish the hive and pollinate our apple trees. Perhaps a robin will hop closer to investigate you...
Leave the worries of the world behind and escape to your own, totally secluded, off-grid, eco-friendly Bothy in a private hay meadow, surrounded by the views and wildlife of the Welsh countryside.
Black Orchard Bothy is perfect for weekends or short holidays, rural retreats, romantic breaks, honeymoons or solo holidays, and is totally dog friendly. Designed to sleep four, we feel it most comfortable for either a couple, or parents with one or two young children.
Black Orchard Bothy is the only letting unit on a small farm well away from the beaten track, but within easy reach of towns and beaches. It is a beautiful and peaceful setting in a ten acre traditional hay meadow with views over the Gwendraeth Valley, and only the sounds of birds to disturb the peace and quiet.
The self-catering Bothy is in South Carmarthenshire just 20 minutes from magnificent sandy beaches. In beautiful countryside approximately central between Kidwelly, Carmarthen, and Llanelli (20 minutes to each) it is hard to imagine a better location. Within half an hour there are beaches, castles, nature reserves, historic houses, museums, shopping centres, a 3D cinema, and even the largest single-span glasshouse in the world at the National Botanic Garden.
Black Orchard is the perfect antidote to modern life, and if you really want to get away from the constant interruption of your "devices" you can take advantage of our Digital Detox Safe. You can lock your 'phones etc safely away 200 yards from the Bothy. You have the choice of keeping the key and accessing your 'phone once a day for example, or going "cold turkey" - we are very happy to keep the key safe and not let you have it until you leave (in which case you can give you family or colleagues our details to contact in case of emergency,).
