The newly renovated 1964 Leyland Titan Double Decker Bus, took just over a year to complete. It is positioned in a quiet spot overlook the valley, with decking and outdoor furniture. The bus has been brought back to its original livery on the outside and accommodates up to 6 people. It has two double bedrooms with toilets and separate access upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs behind the drivers’ cabin.

The kitchen and dining/come sitting area downstairs, with everything needed to cook a treat! Brand new appliances, all cooking equipment, sink and good sized fridge. The closest showers are a short walk away, in the farmyard (Old Dairy) and by the Tipi platform you’ll find our hand-built eco-loo shepherds’ hut with two female loos and a female shower, one male loo and male shower and a urinal.

On site there are also 5 polytunnels, catering for veggies.  The Ceridwen Centre has a wedding licence.

Bike hire is available from the farm. On going tree-planting (about 5000 so far). Offer a green wedding service.

New reward scheme for Ceridwen guests:

We've been puzzling for a while as to how best to encourage guests to recycle while they're with us; obviously providing the spaces, the labelled bins and explanatory notices all help, but we've decided that incentives are good too! So we recently launched the Ceridwen Green Cauldron Scheme:

It's simple - guests staying anywhere on site who amaze us by following all our waste and recycling guidelines and then some(!) will be sent a thank you and a Ceridwen Green Cauldron Sticker by email. If they return to Ceridwen this sticker can be exchanged for goods - like local beers, a pizza voucher for one of our pizza nights, an organic veggie box, etc - thus rewarding their good green practice. We've already awarded our first stickers and hope the guests will come back to trade it in next year. We're sure Ceridwen, the white witch and mother of Taliesin, would approve.
