Naturesbase: The hut with alfresco deck area and kitchen

General

  • Family site over nine acres of wildflower meadow and hedgerows
  • Countryside haven on a farm setting for family play
  • Bushcraft courses, pizza nights, play barn and animal feeding

Base yourself in nature and bask in the surrounds on this meadow site by a stream: Naturesbase, 15 minutes' drive from Lampeter, has just a handful of pitches set in nine acres of flowering meadows surrounded by native trees, on the edge of a Ceredigion village with a stream and wildlife hedgerows alongside.

The owners' aim is to provide an uncrowded and relaxed site for adults and kids, where kids have plenty of room to play: options include a rope swing, cycling and walking trails, damming the stream and playing hide and seek in the long grass. There’s ample space too for games of cricket, rounders, football, and for bike riding and tree climbing.

Guests of all ages can join the team for animal feeding, relax on sofas in the barn, treat themselves to a cooked breakfast, buy homegrown produce in the shop, try a reflexology session or take part in the family bushcraft and campfire evenings. An earth pizza oven is fired up once a week if you'd like to try your hand at making your own.

The site promotes environmentally responsible tourism in all aspects of how it's managed: there's no electric hook-up here, just stargazing, campfires and lazing about…

    Such a lovely campsite! The facilities were clean and tidy. It had everything you needed. The bathrooms were private and clean. There was lots of safe space for children to play in. There was animal feeding in the morning for children. A little shop had some necessities including wood for the campfire and a fridge for any food. A really relaxing, pleasant stay.

    We've just enjoyed a week's camping at Naturesbase and are already talking about when we can return. The tent pitch was a great size and only a very short walk from the car with wheelbarrows supplied for transporting stuff. The showers and toilets were always clean and washing up facilities were good too. There was a little shop with an honesty box providing eggs, milk , fire wood etc as well as a fridge and freezer for storing essentials and icepacks. The ethos of the site is (as the name implies) ecofriendly and this was reflected everywhere around the site, with recycling , composting etc encouraged.
    The kids (11 and 6) had so much fun and didn't want to come home. There is so much for them to do on site- badminton, a tyre swing, feeding the animals, a nature trail (with dens to play in and a river to dam)and a play fort . They also enjoyed an excellent bushcraft session where they learnt to light a fire and whittle. There are also activities for the grown ups should you want to partake- yoga and reflexology and we all enjoyed a cooked breakfast and also pizza night (complete with silly songs around the camp fire).
    The local area is so beautiful with little seaside harbours, sandy beaches and countryside walks to explore as well as gold mines and castles all within a drive as well.
    But the absolute best thing about Naturesbase are the owners Gyles and Alison. Their complete passion for what they have created shines through everything they do and we were made to feel so welcome by them. Gyles' patience with the children and his ability to share his knowledge of nature with them in such a fun and amazing environment is priceless.
    We enjoyed every minute of our stay and will definitely recommend it to friends. We travelled for six hours from our home is Sussex, but it was worth it!

    We loved being able to feed the animals. My children were very excited with this and it was a fun experience. We loved having a private pitch (all pitches were separated by trees etc, which allowed for privacy).

    The cleanliness of the site was fantastic, with hand sanitiser and soap for washing hands readily available.
    I loved the use of materials throughout the site, materials were recycled for other purposes and this was a pleasure to see.

    The 'honesty box' approach in the shop was great too.

    Children loved the tyre swing.

    We loved being able to walk the trail in the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    There was a section of VERY muddy pathway of which we needed to cross to get to our tent. We expect mud as we're camping, but as I suffer with back problems, to walk over this mud everyday was an issue. Perhaps more coverage / grip here would be helpful.

    The trail needs to be more clearly signposted.

From the manager...

Thank you. Yes with all the rain I agree that small area was muddy even with the additional matting. We have already graveled it in October so hopefully in the future this won't happen.

Directions


Due to the remote location, there are about 20 houses with the same postcode, about half a mile apart, so if you use satnav to find the site the last half mile can be tricky. Please copy the online map and follow the instructions below.

From the east:
From Lampeter head west on the Aberaeron Road (A482). After about a mile past Felin Fach take a right signposted with a brown tourist sign towards Ty Mawr Hotel. Follow the road over the bridge and steeply up the other side, until you reach a junction. Go right, leaving the Ty Mawr hotel on the right. After a few hundred metres, take a left just before the blue village signs of Cilcennin. Follow the road for about a mile, through a group of houses and Naturesbase is just after the black metal gates on the right.

From Aberystwyth and the north:
Join the coast road south of Aberystwyth towards Cardigan. At Llanrustyd take a left to Talsarn. After 7 miles, having passed through the villages of Nebo and Cross hands, take a right to Cilcennin with a brown tourist sign also pointed to Ty Mawr. You will pass Cyclemart on your left; keep going through the village of Cilcennin until you reach the old pub, the Commercial Inn. Immediately after the pub and before the church take a right down a narrow steep lane. After about half a mile at a white house take the first left. Naturesbase is 100 metres on the left.

Local attractions

Beaches, hills and history... west Wales is where it all comes together and you're well placed to reach it all from your base. You can be down on the sands at Aberaeron in 15 minutes, doing everything from sandcastle building and rockpool foraging to fishing, windsurfing and sailing. For further seaside adventures, New Quay is 25 minutes' drive from Naturesbase and Aberystwyth 35.

Or get up on the cliffs instead: Aberaeron is an excellent spot to join the Ceredigion Coastal Path, said to be the most varied of the trails taking walkers round the Welsh coast. Keen hikers do the 60-mile full monty; you can do as much or as little as you like, taking in wildlife, wildflowers and wild scenery along the way.

Once you've been up, head down... underground at Dolaucothi Gold Mines (35 minutes), where guided tours take you deep down inside the mountain mined for its precious metal since Roman times. Try gold panning yourself at the end; you never know...

Inland, Devil's Bridge Falls (45 minutes) and surrounding turf is tremendously well-furnished with hiking paths. Hear the roar of the falls, explore the deep wooded gorge below and learn why the Devil himself built a bridge there.

Must see

  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (13.5 miles)
