A cool retro caravan for glampers and traditional tent camping on this charming organic farm near Cardigan Bay.

On the lush, green slopes of the Teifi Valley, Amanda and Ken Edward’s charming smallholding is the centre point for their diverse enterprises. In a small workshop, Ken crafts Welsh oak and chestnut into bespoke furniture, while the hens scratching outside supply eggs to the organic farm shop. Their 170-year-old farmhouse is also the quaint setting for a bed & breakfast, where the aroma of wholesome home-cooking wafts through the open window to the manicured garden beyond. Here, tucked in a private space with stunning views, another of the couple’s fine-tuned ventures tempts in holidaymakers looking for a cosy, rural bolthole.

Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm offers something for everyone with a delightfully intimate five pitch campsite supplementing an impressive glamping retreat. For starters, there’s The Glamavan – an aptly named lodging for those who want a hassle-free holiday with all the furnishings of home. This large retro static caravan is finished with everything you need, including a fully-fitted kitchen with gas oven cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge, sink and kitchen utensils. There’s a bathroom (with shower), a TV and DVD player and oil paintings hanging on the walls. The double and small twin rooms are divided from the main space, while a large bay window seat provides ample space to sleep a fifth person.

For camping purists wanting to pitch their own tent, there are five cannily crafted plots secreted amongst the grounds. These peaceful, private pockets are all unique, with one beside the woodland, another overlooking the valley and a special one amongst the fruit trees. Fires are permitted on most and one is also equipped for a small caravan or campervan. Whichever spot you opt for, you’ll be guaranteed West Wales nature in all its glory, including buzzards and red kites circling majestically overhead. 

Step out from the retro Glamavan interior and enjoy a BBQ in the sun, or stock up on lovely local and organic produce from the onsite farm shop. Guests can also make the most of the B&B by ordering one of the farm’s home-cooked breakfasts to enjoy in the stone and slate farmhouse. As local sausages sizzle in the pan your nose leads you back round to the stone and slate farmhouse where an old, lime-washed milling barn has been transformed into a rainy day hideout. Beneath a beamed roof, a well-stocked games room awaits the kids, while, when the sun returns, a Wendy house promises outdoor fun. The best idea, though, is to slip on your wellies for a wander around the farm. The babbling streams, colourful orchards, sociable animals and plentiful wildlife make Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm an easy place to lose track of time. And with the added comforts of the Glamavan you’ll be in no rush to get away.

When you do jump back in the car, this rural farmstead is poised in prime position to see the best of West Wales. A 30 minute drive takes you straight to the coast and to the charming fishing village of New Quay, it’s houses stacked upon the hillside. To the south, Pembrokeshire National Park boasts some of the UK's most dramatic sea-carved scenery. Excellent fishing and pleasant walks can be found on the banks of the River Teifi, the longest river in Wales and the natural sculptor of the views you enjoy from the comfort of the Glamavan.

The Owner Says

Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm is a working farm set in beautiful West Wales. Here is a place where you can experience peace and tranquillity – unwind surrounded by green fields, with wonderful views. There is birdsong all day and a dark sky at night to observe unpolluted heavens. Just a short drive will take you to the dramatic coast of Cardigan Bay with its magnificent sandy beaches, the coastal path and Bottlenose Dolphins. Drink at local microbreweries, eat wood-fired pizzas, walk to the gin distillery and cheesemaker. The farm itself prides itself on its green credentials and award-winning accommodation.  There is a games barn with table tennis and pool table – a refuge from the elements, and a cool space when it is sunny.  The farm shop is stocked with local organic produce and homemade bread to order.  Organic breakfasts are available to all guests in the imposing traditional farmhouse.

Picture yourself gathered around a campfire on a warm summers evening surrounded by ancient ash trees.  Look up and watch the swallows, red kites, buzzards and later on the bats and owls.  With just the scent of roses and honeysuckle and wood smoke what more could you want. Isn’t it every campers dream to find such a place where you can be alone in a secluded glade with only your friends and family?  Walks from the doorstep around the lush 60-acre farm, climb Mary’s hill, find the dingly dell, pooh corner and the sound of music trees and help collect the eggs in the morning.

Wonderful, quiet, private pitches.

We spent a fabulous 10 days pitched on Hindsight - just a small way from the lovely toilet, shower, and washing up facility. Each pitch is very private with plenty of space for the fire, to sit, and to enjoy the scenery. The farm shop is really well stocked with essentials, and a few treats. Amanda and Ken were lovely hosts, who were always ready to help, or to chat. We loved their commitment to being eco, and their enthusiasm and willingness to share their experiences and vision.The games barn was great, but we didn't use it much. We did love the freedom to use the farm to run the dogs. Hard to find faults. The freezer was perhaps a bit small when the site was full.

A wonderful wonderful place

Our family of 5 met with another family and the children quickly formed a tribe and were off. We saw them for food and not much else. It was wonderful. Each pitch is beautifully created, there is more wildlife than I have ever seen in one place - a red kite flew over us throughout the day and bunnies hopped in the fields, bats swept overhead by night. Amanda and Ken are super friendly and held a lovely BBQ on the Saturday evening and invited the football fans to watch the match in their house. I think we need to go back every month...

Sun of a Pitch - beautiful

Beautiful peaceful campsite, wonderfully secluded pitch ideal for dog owners as it’s gated. Clean toilet and shower, lovely views. Ken and Amanda very welcoming and helpful. Lovely farm shop on site.

Beautiful private pitch

Amanda and Ken were both welcoming and helpful, throughout. Although we were only a stones throw away from the farm house the pitch was secluded and private and the closest you could get to wild camping without going wild camping, All the amenities were there if you wanted to take advantage of them with the luxury of a barn converted to a games room, very good, latrene and shower were ingenious. We both loved the fact you could have a proper fire going which we needed on our trip. Would definitely consider returning. A fantastic setup Thank you

Easy to find with a friendly welcome. I needed a few days of countryside peace, and that’s what I got. While it is a working farm, the noise is minimal and the privacy of each plot means the peace remains. The facilities have been designed uniquely and add a quaint, quirky touch that just echoes the friendliness of the family. The farm shop is a lovely addition with organic treats and necessities to buy. You can really see the time and effort that has gone in to make it homely. I’ll be returning in the warmer months when the weather is brighter so I can explore a bit more!

A relaxing break

A warm, friendly welcome from Amanda and Ken. A peaceful setting with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. We enjoyed the privacy that comes with an individual pitch. Ken has created unique shower and toilet facilities which work really well and were kept very clean. There is a well stocked farm shop. The nearby Daffodil Inn was good for food.
