Spy real, live dragonflies dancing over lily-rich ponds as you head out in search of sleepy dragons in the wooded wonderland at this quiet eco site

'There are dragons in there!’ one young camper enthused as we made our way into the dark woodland adjoining the camping meadow at Denmark Farm. Fearing for our safety, the gallant squire grabbed his trusty sword (ok, so it was a long stick) and rushed past us with a chivalrous, ’And I’m going to get them’.

Although we didn’t encounter any dragons during the visit, their presence is eminently plausible at this Welsh conservation site, situated among the green humps and bumps of Celtic Ceredigion. You wouldn’t blame the mystical creatures for slumbering off the effects of battling with medieval knights in a centuries-long hibernation somewhere within this 40-acre treasure trove of landscape.

Encirling the camping meadow are woods and fields and ponds that have been slowly nursed back to life from the land owner’s farming days. A commendable job has been carried out by Denmark Farm Conservation Centre in helping nature to restore the site, much to the joy of the local flora and fauna (dragonflies included).

There is room in the gently sloping meadow for around 20 people at any one time, with only tents allowed, plus a yurt for non-campers. A small, open fronted kitchen, made from sustainably sourced timber, is available for all guests to use and, while there are two composting toilets in the camping meadow, flushing loos and showers are open 24-hours-a-day in the Conversvation Centre building.

Pathways that lead through the woods beckon you towards fairy-tale adventures, one leading to a magical roundhouse, another to a spiky hide – is it a bird or a hedgehog? – by the long lake. Just be careful where you step; you wouldn’t want to awaken any dragons – at least, not unless you have your own little St. George to hand.



Forty acres of meadows, woodland, ponds and pastures to explore and enjoy. Nature trails are waymarked across the site. Denmark Farm Conservation Centre also runs courses such as willow weaving, green wood working, textiles, other natural crafts, conservation, species identification, children's activities and more outdoor educational fun – so do check if anything’s going on during your stay. In the adjacent woodland you’ll find the communal kitchen, a neat little wooden hut with a sink (there’s a standpipe for cold water in the field), double-ring gas stove, a couple of big saucepans and a kettle. A little further into the woodland is the compost loo – near enough not to be a long trek from your tent, but far enough away for privacy. Back at the centre is a Utility room with washing machine, dryer, freezer and washing up area available for campers for a donation. Also in the utility room is a table, chairs and some books and games for those rainy evenings. On booking, campers are provided with detailed notes for their arrival (the campsite is only staffed during office hours) and a helpful map. Included is the code to get into the building for use of the showers (1 each in for ladies and gents) and loos (2 each). The Bunkhouse/dormitories are also located within this building. There’s another compost loo near the wildlife garden. Campfires are permitted in a communal campfire circle and firewood can be purchased for £5 per bag. A fire wok and charcoal can also be hired at time of booking if you prefer a more private campfire experience.

Suitable For

Tents, small groups, guide dogs — yes. Campervans, caravans, other pets — no (sorry we are a nature reserve)


Visit the huge bog at Cors Caron's nature reserve (01974 298480), about 7 miles away. The wetlands form a sanctuary for many species of bird and other wildlife; its resident otters are so at home that they can sometimes be seen during the daytime. A circular walkway provides access to a huge stretch of peaty Welsh bog.

Explore the stunning Ceredigion coastline. Cardigan Bay offers something for everyone with family friendly Green Flag beaches, miles of spectacular coast paths and plenty of dolphins, seals and porpoises. 

Food & Drink

Watson and Pratts (01570 423099) is just off the A485 (you'll pass it on your way to Denmark Farm if coming via Lampeter) and has a fantastic array of fresh and organic produce (they also do delivery). For eating out, the Talbot Hotel in Tregaron (01974 298208) can't be beaten.

The Owner Says

Denmark farm provides space for eco-camping set in a wonderful, wildlife-rich 40-acre nature reserve. The camp site is situated on a gently sloping meadow next to woodland and, with almost no light pollution, the stars are amazing. Campers have the unique opportunity to share this peaceful place with red kites circling overhead, hares hiding in the undergrowth, dragonflies darting over ponds, hedgerows and woods full of birdsong, and flower-filled meadows. 

Social Distancing Measures

Denmark Farm Eco Campsite is a tiny site which never has more than a handful of campers staying at any time. During this years season we will block off several pitches to ensure that tents will be well spaced for ease of social distancing. We will also encourage guests to bring their own cooking equipment as our shared facilities are very small and it is unlikely that we can allow access to shared cooking areas. The toilets, showers and shared utility room will be cleaned daily and hand washing facilities provided in both areas for all guests.


The campsite can accommodate no more than 10 tents (approx 20 people) so booking and payment in advance is necessary. One yurt also available to hire.

Getting There

From Lampeter, take the A485 out of the town (it’s the right hand turn), signed towards Tregaron. After 2 miles take a left off the A485 (signposted to Denmark Farm) and continue up the lane. Keep going for another couple of miles and you’ll see a sign for the farm, which is on the left. Not so easy! The nearest train station is either at Carmarthen or Aberystwyth, about 25 miles away. Both towns have fairly regular buses to our local town Lampeter which is just 4 miles away.

Beautiful, well kept, peaceful

Denmark Farm is a small and extremely well kept campsite. The facilities are excellent and the site set out beautifully. I was initially put off by the campsite being so far from where you can leave the car, but actually with the huge barrows they provide, it is very easy to move all of your stuff from one to the other. The site area is fairly small and with so few tents, it does feel a little close - you certainly can't help but hear each other, but we had lovely neighbours and the three nights we spent at Denmark Farm were very sociable. I would highly recommend it and hope to return.

Peaceful, idyllic and welcoming.

Beautiful quiet campsite shared with birds and flowers. Great trails in the woods and meadows. Campfire was a lovely bonus. The facilities are spick and span and everything we needed was there. Super to have no vehicles on the camping field, just mole-hills and butterflies. Looking forward to going back.

A lovely spot, working fine with adjustments for Covid-19.

We had a lovely week at Denmark Farm, in spite of storms Ellen and Francis! The site is well situated in a meadow corner adjacent to woodland. The tracks in place around the site offered a pleasant walk for the family and exploration opportunities for our boys. Great to spot a hedgehog one evening. It's worth noting just how peaceful this spot is; silent at night time with no rumbling roads in the background. And the night sky views are stunning when the clouds part. The site is accessed by a well laid tarmac and boardwalk path, so wheeling our kit in on the trolleys wasn't difficult. It was wetter than normal while we were there and things still worked okay. Toilets and showers were kept clean. My only ask would be that the utility room be accessible by a code lock, akin to the toilet block, to allow easier access to these facilities. The two NT beaches, Mwnt and Penbryn were lovely. New Quay, Aberaeron and Cardigan all have their charms too. Devil's Bridge waterfalls and Plynlimon not far to the north and Cors Caron nature reserve well worth a visit. The central campfire area was a nice feature that brought the small group of families who were staying together of an evening, weather permitting! Mara was on hand to help with any queries we had. Thanks for a lovely week away.

Response from Denmark Farm

Thank you for coming to stay with us at Denmark Farm and for your kind review Martin. We are delighted that you had a good stay despite the terrible weather during the week. In a 'normal' season you will have 24 hour access to the Utility Room but unfortunately this season we are restricted due to COVID regulations. I hope you can come back again another year and have the benefit of all our facilities. Many thanks again for being such considerate campers! Mara


Excellent Stay!

My son and I stayed for 3 nights. Organisation and comms were great and Mara was around to to show us what was where. The grass was mowed to make things easier. The field is compact with room for 5 - 6 decent sized pitches (to allow for social distancing) The toilets / shower were fine. The shower took a while to get to the right temperature but not really an issue. We made good use of the communal camp fire. The only clarity that would be helpful on the website - is if we were allowed our own camp fires (other guests had their own fire pits). The £5 for a bag of fire wood is good value. We explored Long Wood, a local nature reserve, Tywi Forest, New Quay ( crowded by Welsh standards - not south Coast!), Penbryn (quieter) and coast paths. We shopped for food in Lampeter. Overall a great stay. Our needs (campsite, hot water, camp fire, no pets).

Response from Denmark Farm

Thank you for your kind review Kirit. It was great to meet you and your son last week. Just to clarify that you can hire a firepit for personal use and this option would have been offered at the booking stage. Sorry you missed this, but hopefully you know for next time! Please do come back again soon. Mara


Wonderful peaceful campsite

One of those magical places. We stayed in our tent previously and in the yurt this time. Best yurt I've ever stayed in, so cosy and comfortable. The campsite is small and nestled next to a woodland which the children loved. There's a compost toilet or full amenities a little further away. Everything is rustic but in keeping with the place and considerate of the surroundings.

Our first stay in a Yurt

We had a fabulous time staying in the Yurt. It was very cosy and a perfect place for a birthday. The landscape is stunning and peaceful. There were wonderful stars at night, and we loved walking through the meadow and deciduous wood with early autumn colours and a clear stream. It was our first time in a yurt and we loved every minute of it. There were five of us (three children and their parents) and it was snug and airy at the same time. We enjoyed listening to the crackling of the log burner and the occasional owl hooting. Dish washing in the rustic kitchen was made pleasant by the view, as the walls were partially open and the floor partially elevated. Even the water seemed to taste better. Highly recommended.

Peacful small campsite in a lovely meadow

Really enjoyed camping at Denmark Farm. Having no vehicles on the actual site and the woodland camp kitchen made the site really special. The wildlife meadow around the campsite on a dewy morning just sparkled. Wildlife  and nature were abundant, and it was fabulous just to listen and observe around the campsite and the wider nature reserve. A short walk to the toilets and showers was no problem at all. Plenty to see and do within the local area. I spent a week camping and am returning again this year. Would recommend.

Camping in a nature reserve

We stayed at Denmark Farm towards the end of summer 2014. This tiny campsite is set in the middle of a lovely nature reserve, home to newts, dormice (and, to be honest, legions of slugs at night!). Our children attended one of the woodland activity days and loved it. Plenty of space to explore and free access to the reserve. We had a great week despite some windy and rainy weather and would definitely recommend this campsite and it's surrounding area. There are no cars on the actual camping area, which we like, and you transfer your stuff from the carpark by barrows provided. Not many people around when we were there, very clean facilities shared with the activity centre, great little outdoor kitchen with a gas hob. Really recommend this place.
