Hidden away in serene countryside, Einon Valley Camping Pods is a small-scale retreat on a traditional family-run farm in Wales. This tiny site was opened in 2012 and has pre-pitched accommodation with far-reaching vistas across the Einon Valley and Llanllwni Mountains, with plenty of privacy and friendly farm animals in nearby fields. The pods are wooden structures that blend in with their surroundings and provide an experience that's both comfy and convenient. They are insulated with natural sheep's wool, soundproofed to help you get a good night's sleep and have electricity for lighting and heating. Outdoors, a firepit is also included. The pods are unfurnished, so please bring everything you'd normally pack on a camping trip (minus the tent, of course…). A short walk away, high-quality shared facilities like a toilet, shower room and washing-up station are within easy reach. Like the pods, these facilities are heated and insulated for when the weather takes a chilly turn. Einon Valley Camping Pods is within about a quarter of a mile from a café, where you can pick up teas, coffees, cakes and lunches from Tuesday to Sunday. For more off-site amenities, drive 10 minutes down the road to Llandysul, where there's a food shop, a public swimming pool and several takeaways.

Local attractions

The local area is full of interesting spots, from the Rock Woollen Mill in the next village along (five minutes' drive) to the waymarked forest trails at Coed Y Foel (10 minutes) and Brechfa Forest (30 minutes). The Dolaucothi Gold Mines in Pumsaint (30 minutes) make an interesting day out if you're intrigued by the area's history, as do country houses like Llanerchaeron (30 minutes). The nearby coastline is full of stunning seaside towns like New Quay (30 minutes) and Aberaeron (30 minutes), plus a bevy of pristine beaches – your hosts particularly recommend Llangrannog (30 minutes), Penbryn (30 minutes) and Mwnt (45 minutes), where there are family-friendly facilities, shops and cafés. Two of West Wales' most notable gardens, Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden of Wales (both 45 minutes) are well worth the drive, but don't overlook smaller spots locally like the peaceful Cae Hir Gardens in Cribyn (15 minutes) or Norwood Gardens in Llanllwni (15 minutes), a hidden gem with seven individually themed areas and a terrific tea rooms.
