There are the beautiful beaches, dolphin spotting, secret mountains, great places to eat, wild walks, little market towns, outdoor adventure, mounting biking, kayaking, surfing, heritage, ruined abbeys, National trust estates, or just stay and relax within the beauty of the site and complete join the activity trail, play on the hill fort, dam the stream and enjoy the dark starry skies around your own fire. A week is not enough time to absorb. Take the steam train (01970 625819) from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge. The scenery is eye-poppingly stunning. Just half an hour’s drive away you’ll find the sheltered sands of Llangrannog Beach. It’s a beautiful spot with plenty of amenities, so is very family-friendly. Dogs are allowed, but must be on leads. There is a good dog-walking beach about 5 miles from the site (Cei Bach beach). The natural wildernesses of the Cambrian Mountains are close at hand for hikes and picnicking.
Food & Drink
There are so many great places to eat for all tastes. On site we offer Welsh cooked breakfasts in the communal barn, twice a week and the unforgettable pizza night followed by singing around the fire campfire, all welcome. We also have a constant supply of tempting cakes on offer in the honesty shop. For eating out, the seafood at Aberaeron’s Harbourmaster (01545 570755) is hard to beat and, in the other direction, the Talbot Hotel (01974 298208) is a proper Welsh pub with hearty meals and afternoon teas. The Celtic ( Aberaeron) fish and chips are great to grab whilst enjoying watching the sun go down on the harbour wall. The Cellar and Hive are great family places overlooking the inner harbour and the Stubborn Duckling is a new fine dining restaurant which is wonderful. Newquay 7 miles away has a range of pubs, cafes and restaurants ( Bluebell & Pepper pot ) after a days dolphin spotting or surfing.
Nature versus nurture? There’s no need to get into this old debate at Naturesbase, a gorgeous natural environment nurtured to perfection by its caring, sharing owners. So, come and help yourself to a hefty chunk of nurtured nature, and a slice of pizza, too.

Response from Naturesbase
Lovely camping site
Naturesbase is located at Tyngwndwn Farm, Cilcennin, Lampeter, Ceredigion SA48 8RJ
From Lampeter head west on the Aberaeron Road (A482). After about 1 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. Turn right (leaving the Ty Mawr hotel on your right). Continue along and 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.
Train to Aberystwyth or Carmarthen, and hop on bus no. X40 (Aberystwyth–Carmarthen). Alight at the junction for Cilcennin (near Ciliau Aeron), from where it’s a mile’s walk up a steep hill or ring Naturesbase for a lift from the bus stop.
