Peace, proper peace… how fab. The Old Post Office Eco Camping, 10 minutes’ drive from Pencader, is a quiet rural site that’s all set up for souls seeking a bit of serenity.
Noisy distractions are kept to a minimum here: no kids, no TVs and no radios are allowed on site, and limited mobile phone reception means you should remain refreshingly free from dinging gadgets. There is, however, a bit of clucking: that's from the ex-battery hens that generously provide eggs to be delivered for your brekkie if you let the site owners know you fancy it; in return, put a coin or two in the contributions box when picking veg and herbs from the gardens and polytunnel – it all goes towards buying their treats.
As you'll have spied from the name, greener living is important here: guests are requested not to bring chemicals on site and instead to use the eco-friendly cleaning products and bamboo loo roll provided. And that’s not all that’s provided: a selection of games, books and maps is to hand, and there’s a collection of bits of camping kit lest you find you’ve forgotten something vital.
There’s no shower at the site, but if you need a bit of a clean-up take your messy self for a word with friendly owners Rikki and Karen and they’ll sort you with a shower at the main house for a small charge.
For eats, you're welcome to light up a barbie or firepit, and there are a couple of pubs serving top-notch food a mile and a half away.

From the A485 heading north, on entering Llanllwni turn left after TL Thomas builders' merchants. Follow the lane for a mile and a half. Turn right at the crossroads and The Old Post Office is the first house on the right.
From Lampeter heading south, go through Llanybudder and turn right after about a mile, just before a bridge with a wooden cross on it. Follow the lane for two miles, passing The Old Vicarage. Go round the bend and up an incline and the house is on the left.
Ready for a ramble? Leave the car behind and set out on a walk along the banks of the Teifi river from the site. Hillier hikes can be had at the Llanllwni, Llanybydder and Pencarreg mountains (all within a 10-minute drive); a family-run riding centre 15 minutes away can arrange for you to see the stunning scenery on a horseback trek instead.
Not done yet? Make a break for the Brechfa Forest (10 minutes’ drive), where there are more walking routes and some fab mountain bike trails for all abilities to speed along, or leg it to Llandysul (10 minutes) for a whole heap of adventures including kayaking, coasteering and rock climbing.
After all this it’s possible you’ll need a couple of gentler outings: take it a bit easier with a wander round the National Botanic Garden of Wales (35 minutes’ drive), have a ride on the narrow-gauge Teifi Valley Railway (10 minutes) or take tasty trips to the New Quay Honey Farm (25 minutes) and the Caws Teifi cheese farm (20 minutes), home of the medal-winning Celtic Promise.
