We run the Grey Alders farm and retreat centre.  Visitors  are always welcome, especially those who come to pick up some super-aged beef or mutton and see how we raise our animals.

Our B&B and retreat offers a relaxing faith-enhancing stay.  Our rooms are linked right here.  We are around most of the time and are happy to help with ideas of places to visit in the vicinity or further afield. We can help you find a local restaurant, beach, castle, walk or view.

Local restaurants

There are restaurants in Carmarthen.  We recommend ye Hen Derwen (‘The Old Oak' - Wetherspoons) in King Street.  Park in the car park by St Peter's (Postcode SA31 1GW) and walk down King Street.  Yr Hen Derwen is on the right.  (By the way, St Peter's is the oldest place of worship in the oldest town in Wales.  The Celtic Christians took over the site from the Iron-Age pagans.  The clue is the typical pagan circular burial ground.)

However, St Clears is nearer.  On the road leading to and from Meidrim you will see take-away fish and chips.  There is more fish & chips and a Chinese in the centre, while Bangladeshi food is found at the Eliaichi.  The Black Lion and the Corvus are basic but the latter will feed you well.  Just outside on the Pembroke & Tenby road on the left you'll see the Savoy (01994 230664) which does steaks and ribs and so on.  Savoy's postcode SA33 4JP will take you through St Clears centre.

Also try the Fox & Hounds in Banc-y-felin just off the A40 between Carmarthen and St Clears.  Address  High St, Bancyfelin, Carmarthen, Dyfed SA33 5ND

This link takes you to some of the local activities.

Guests staying are welcome in the Grey Alders kitchen/lounge/tv area. There is free Wi-Fi on site. You won't be able to watch a video on it, but you will be able to keep up with your emails and do basic browsing. You are also welcome to walk around the farm, see the fields and watch the sheep and cattle.  You can walk right down to the river at the bottom of the farm. And then walk back up again... There is a disabled-access toilet and washbasin in the hallway.

Just make yourself at home!

We also welcome farm volunteers and we are waiting right now for the right person or couple to run the farm on a share-farming basis.  Click on 'Opportunities' right here.
