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 has just a handful of pitches set in nine acres of flowering meadows surrounded by native trees, on the edge of a 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...

    What an absolute gem this place is- it is abundantly clear the sheer love and passion that Gyles and Alison have injected into this wonderful campsite, it felt like a home away from home. On arrival we were met by both Alison and Gyles who were extremely welcoming and keen to show us around and help us to familiarise ourselves.
    Our children had the absolute times of their lives exploring, and there was something new to be discovered around every corner. They loved exploring the woods, finding the dens and playing in the stream, it was so nice to see them just being kids- caked in mud, soaking wet wellies and socks with rosy cheeks from laughing. We weren't blessed with great summer weather, but donned wellies we did and explored all the same. When the rain was too heavy (we lost a welly and a sock in the mud bog!) we headed for the play barn area which was well equipped with toys, games and puzzles which kept our children occupied for hours, allowing us to sit and read a book in peace :) the cakes available to buy in the barn were delicious.
    There is so much space for the children to run around in, the tire swing was also a massive hit as was Gandalf and the hillfort.
    The daily ringing of the morning feeding bell was greatly anticipated, and rain or shine our children were out with Gyles (and Hugo!) feeding the animals.
    The tent pitches were spacious, and felt private but close enough to not feel excluded from your neighbours. The trees provided great shelter from the rain and the wind, and the area was very well maintained (there were quite a number of tiny thistle plants on the ground though so beware if you're barefoot). Each pitch has a fire pit area and grates are freely available.
    The shop was always well stocked (although you need to be early for the milk) and was reasonably priced.
    The pizza night was fantastic, one of the best pizzas I have ever tasted- especially with the fresh home grown basil! The campfire songs after were very entertaining (and athletic!). We didn't do the bush craft as our children didn't want to, but it looked and sounded like lots of fun!
    One thing we loved was that the tree's have plaques on them telling you what they are and what can be made from them our children loved learning lots of really interesting facts.
    Location wise, this campsite is in a perfect area- remote enough to feel like wild camping with lots of space but close enough to local towns and attractions to get out and about. Gyles was kind enough to lend us some crabbing buckets and nets and we spent a day in near by Abaraeron, crabbing, rock pool hunting and climbing the rocks- the parking is free too! Its also close to New Quay. They have a large map at the site with lots of things to do tacked onto it which was really helpful for visualising where things were, Gyles was incredibly helpful with recommending things to see and do in the local area also.
    There are so many things to be written about this campsite, but truly they just don't do it justice- it was simply amazing on many levels. Our children cried leaving this campsite because they didn't want to come home, that speaks louder than anything written in a review.

    Thank you Alison and Gyles for a wonderful first family camping trip experience, you blew our expectations right out of the water. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended you to many friends.

    Disliked: 

    The toilets were quite far from some of the tent pitches- we are new to camping and on returning will take a portable toilet with us.
    The toilets being closed for an hour everyday for cleaning wasn't ideal with young children- again though this was more a circumstance than an issue and taking a portable toilet with us would make this a non issue.
    The site could do with being better sign posted in the local area so its a little easier to find.

    A truly wonderful camping experience, we took our 5mtr bell tent, awning and pop up gazebo and had plenty of room to pitch them all with room to spare. The pitch was freshly mowed and also has a ready prepared fire pit, with free to use fire grate. We loved the naturbase feel of the site, if you like back to nature, eco theme then this is the campsite for you. The toilet, showers and wash facilities are excellent and meticulously cleaned daily. I must coment on the owners, Gyles and Alison, they are the most wonderful people you could wish to meet, nothing is to much trouble for them, and we can seriously recommend the wood fired pizza evening and the breakfast morning. You can meet up with other campers in courtyard area sitting at the multicoloured bench sets, always with fresh flowers in pots curtesy of Alison. Take a bottle of wine and just chill out and take in the serenity of the site. Walk around the woodland trails, see the farm animals, you can see by the children's faces how much they enjoy this site, and of course I have to mention the sitting around the campfire with Gyles singing and reciting poems, the children all join in, in fact, so do the adults, we will definitely return to this campsite, we just wish it was open all year, we would winter camp here.

    Nothing, other than we had to leave a day early due to a family issue at home.

    This campsite is the place to go if you want a peaceful scenic campsite where you can feed the farm animals and enjoy quality family time. They have campfire singalongs which is so funny and entertaining even for us adults. Pizza night where you can make your own pizzas and even do brushcrafts and breakfast. A lovely game room filled with board games and toys for those raining days and books to read. Always hot water in the showers and a family shower room. This campsite has had so much love and hard work put into it. Beautiful little details too. It's by far my favourite site I have been to. Not far are lovely beaches with caves to explore and dolphin watching too. Lovely scenic walks even on the campsite you can go on a walk and find a Fort. So if you want a chicken on your head for a funny photo, a campfire by your tent, beautiful walks and a safe place for your kids to run around then this is the site for you.

    We loved the lovely community feel to the site, the quietness and secluded camping pitches. Especially loved the breakfasts and pizza night. The kids loved the animals, rope swing and games barn. It was great to have the indoor space of the goat shed to stay cosy and play board games if it was raining. Alison and Gyles were extremely welcoming.

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

  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (2.6 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (13.5 miles)
