OUR PITCHES

Here at Willow Acres Campsite, we currently have seven pitches. Have a look at each below and check availability for each pitch. We only offer weekly camping bookings, Arrival and Departures are every Saturday from 1st Saturday in April through to the last Saturday in September.

We have a communal space (this used to be our sheep shed but is now fondly named The Baaa!), where we host get-togethers for our site guests to meet should they wish. Everyone is welcome to pop into this area to socialise. This space houses a washing up area with hot water as well as fridges, freezers and electric sockets for your use.

‘’ Willow acres Campsite is a brand new campsite for 2022. We are the 3rd generation of farmers and aim to go into the future supporting the farm in a different way. We care passionately about our farm and environment wishing to share our vision of a sustainable and low impact camping experience with the Greener Camping Club members. All of our pitches within the Willow Acres Campsite are named after our animals who have left lasting memories for us. As it was our Grandparents who first came to Lasgarn farm in the 1940’s this is a way of keeping their stories alive and of course acknowledging that without all their hard work, care and love we would not have this opportunity today. ‘’

Rosie-Marie

This pitch is our premium pitch which is a converted horsebox lorry. 

It is a quirky space that is suitable for a family or a couple. This is a large unit which the whole family will love as it’s a bit different and fun. There is an outside balcony to sit and enjoy looking out over the meadow. There are 3 sleeping areas, (of 3 small doubles) which are; above the cab, the kitchen area and a sofa bed in the living area. 

The accommodation is provided for those who love the idea of camping but can’t cope with all the fuss of putting up tents and having a hard floor to sleep on!  Yes -it's cheating but who will know?

In the horsebox there are solar powered lights, a phone charger and pumped water and sink, plus a small gas stove for the morning coffee. 

Outside there is a beautiful covered kitchen area with a handcrafted kitchen bench,  which is fully equipped with everything you need to cook as well as a gas hob and picnic bench. The cover extends to the fire pit area in case of rain.

This pitch makes use of our bathroom facilities in the block provided, which has 2 toilets and a shower. 

Called Rosie- Marie simply because my Grancha would sing with great gusto ‘ Rosie - Marie… I love you …I’m always dreaming of you...!), ( apparently a very famous song back in their day!)  except he would change the name to mine ( Sharon - Marie …     I   love you….), and I would beam from ear to ear. So proud of him and at 4 years old he was my absolute hero.

Jill's story… One day my Grancha went visiting our neighbours farm who often took in orphaned animals. On this occasion they had a box of piglets under the dresser. ( They always had waifs and stray baby animals under the dresser!) One of the little piggies was so small they asked my Granch to take her home to my Grandmother to nurse, because they were sure she could save her. Returning home with a piglet in his coat pocket my Nan greeted little Jill. She was weak and small but with lots of love and care she soon grew. She became so boisterous and naughty she even chased them around the farmyard and eventually bit my nan! How very naughty Jill the piggy was!

Custards story…we immediately think of sweet yellow creamy custard as a lovely desert, however it was in this instance the name was  given to a beautiful yellow calf. So named because of her colour- though she was not exactly sweet! She was indeed a beautiful yellow colour with white tufty hair too,  so very pretty. So was as feisty as you like though, and very jumpy. She would clear a jump over a five bar gate no problem often leaving a very bewildered and huffing crowd of us staring after her as she hightailed it away up the field. She was a very difficult girl indeed, but we remember her fondly.

Snowy & Lumpys story… These two were two handed reared calves that John and I reared ourselves. As their mums were less than attentive it was over to the family to take care of them from just a few days old. They were small and helpless, and very cute Snowy was a white fluffy cute girly calf and Lumpy a boy, with brown fur and big beautiful eyes. Over the months their bottles of milk became buckets of milk and they grew and grew. It became quite unnerving to call them for their milk by the end - having a huge ‘calf’ hurtling  at high speed toward you for their ‘milky time ‘! Lovely memories of them though.

Bonnie & Dot’s story… Always to remain a couple. These were among my Grandparent’s first animals back in the 1940’s. Bonnie was the welsh cob farm horse who worked the fields with my Grancha and Dot was the tiny kitten that followed her everywhere!  Little Dot was so named because she was all black apart from the white dot on her forehead! Bonnie being so huge made them the most unlikely of companions. The pair by all accounts inseparable. Dot would walk around the fields when Bonnie was working and at night sleep in the stable by her side. So memorable was their friendship that I found little stories written by my Nan about them many years later. And we will keep you two together.

Butch’s story…. This special lad is the only animal to be currently residing on Lasgarn farm today. He has his own pitch because he is so spectacular. If you spot him you will see what we mean. He struts around like the farm belongs to him alone and has all the time in the world it seems! However he is a very caring fellow and looks after his ladies beautifully- making sure they are safely tucked in each night. He has the most fantastic fluffy red yellow and red trousers and loves to puff out his chest making him even huger than he already is. You may have guessed- it's Cath’s Cockerel. He is possibly the one you hear in the mornings….

Curly's story…. As you can imagine this lovely girl had curly hair! She was a pretty brown cow and her hair constantly looked like her mum had been licking her as it was shiny and full of lick marks and curls.  Although we remember her fondly, she was, if I recall well, rather an evil one when she was in a mood and you especially did not venture near her when she calved down. No chance! However she gets a pitch named after her because she was so memorable even if it was for mixed reasons!
