- Wildlife haven: look out for buzzards, newts, toads and otters
- Wild swimming allowed in the lake
The extensive camping field at Gwalia Farm is in a wild area near a lake, with flattened patches perfect for pitching tents. The area has plenty of wildlife including orchids, dragonflies and damselflies, buzzards, kites, frogs, newts, toads and sometimes nightjars, glow worms and even the occasional otter.
Treated spring water is available in the neighbouring field and campfires are permitted. Showers are available at the farmhouse by advance arrangement for a small charge and guests are welcome to swim in the small lake (please note that the site doesn't offer any safety equipment or supervision).
The farm has goats, chickens and sheep, and a large vegetable garden using organic principles. Cars are parked a short walk from the field.
