We are a traditional family farm in the Teifi Valley. We have a beef suckler herd and a sheep flock. The farm also grows cereals to provide food and bedding for the livestock.
In 2012 we opened a small camping pod site, currently with two pods. Both have far-reaching views across the Einon valley to the Llanllwni mountains, and benefit from our tranquil setting. It is the ideal location to escape from the busyness of life and relax in a beautiful setting.
The pods are wooden structures designed to fit into their surroundings while providing accommodation similar to a tent but with more advantages. They are pleasing to the eye as well as practical being fully insulated with sheep’s wool. Their advantages include:
- Avoid pitching and dismantling tents
- More privacy and security
- Tough construction keeps you warm and dry
- Soundproofing means that adverse weather will not keep you awake
- Electric supply for lighting and heating
- No waking with the early summer morning light
The smaller standard pod is suitable for two adults and one child while the larger one is suitable for a larger family. It is possible to accommodate more people depending on how ‘cosy’ you like to be. If you are planning a camping pod holiday or short break then you will need to bring everything you would normally bring for a camping trip except the tent!
Small campfires are available by arrangement.
The pods benefit from the use of high quality facilities, purpose built in 2012 and including a WC, shower room and facilities to wash your dishes with both hot and cold running water provided. Both the pods and other facilities are heated and well insulated for your comfort and convenience.
We are located in a stunning part of west Wales with many activities and attractions to enjoy during your stay with us. The list below gives some of the attractions within easy reach of our farm.
Beaches and the coast – west Wales has some of the most beautiful coastline with many Blue Fag beaches nearby: try Llangranog, Penbryn, or Mwnt for stunning beaches with facilities for families such as cafés/shops and toilets. If you fancy a harbour town, then try characterful Aberaeron with a lovely harbour and good eateries and shops.
Local historical visitor attractions – this area of Wales is full of places of historic interest. In our next village, visit the Rock Woollen Mill to see the Welsh textile industry of yesteryear but still working today. For country houses, try Llanerchaeron near Aberaeron, a beautiful National Trust mansion with two walled gardens and parkland trails. In Pumsaint near Lampeter, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines are an interesting day out. If you like steam railways, then the Gwili Railway is near Carmarthen or the Teifi Valley Railway is in Henllan, near Newcastle Emlyn.
Gardens – west Wales has two of Wales’ most notable gardens: Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden of Wales both of which are about 45 minutes away. Closer to our site, try smaller gardens such as Cae Hir in Cribyn or Norwood Gardens in Llanllwni. There are also many local gardens open through the National Garden Scheme throughout the summer.
Local art and crafts – in our local area, there are many artists and craftsmen/women who display their work at their studio own or in galleries. The Maker’s Mark in Newcastle Emlyn is a good place to start as it is a gallery for many local artists.
Children’s attractions – if you are looking for something to do with children on a dry or wet day then Folly Farm near Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire, is an ideal day out. It is about one hour's drive away but is well worth the trip. They have animals to pet and feed (farm and zoo animals), a huge san pit with diggers, several adventure playgrounds indoor and outdoor, an indoor vintage fairground, daily stage show and lots more.
Outdoor activities – if you enjoy outdoor activities, then west Wales is an ideal playground. Below is a list of activities available locally:
- Canoeing: the River Teifi is renowned for great canoeing whether you are a beginner or a professional. The Paddlers in Llandysul is a good centre for all types of canoeing whatever ability – they offer river canoeing and sea kayaking.
- Walking: for walkers, there are many local paths as well as the coastal path. If you fancy some more challenging walking then the Cambrians or the Beacons are a bit further away but not too far for a day's walking. We can supply you with some information on local walks if you are interested – please ask on arrival.
- Cycling: for off road cycling, Brechfa Forest is a great location whatever your ability with many different trails and tracks. Brechfa has black, blue and red runs. We are also situated very close to cycle route 82 which runs from Aberystwyth to Fishguard via a scenic route using mostly road but also cycle track in sections. Also there are several good cycle routes on local disused railways which are great for easy riding with children (Aberaeron to Llanercheaeron and Aberystwyth to Tregaron).
- Fishing: The Teifi Valley is a renowned area for fishing. See the Llandysul Anglers Association website for details of fishing on the Teifi. The River Towy is also not too far away and also gives excellent fishing. Lake fishing is also available locally as well as sea fishing off of the west Wales Coast.
Market towns – this area of Wales has many small historic market towns with many shops and other facilities. We are only ten minutes from Lampeter and Llandysul and 20 minutes from Newcastle Emlyn and Aberaeron. Each have supermarkets as well as many small independent shops, cafés, pubs, take-aways and restaurants. Each of these market towns also have leisure centres and sport facilities.
