Unpretentious West Wales glamping with acres of space to explore.

Planning a glamping site may seem simple at first – buy some accommodation, fill it with the most luxurious items you can find and install some plush facilities – but the reality of blending these comforts with the back-to-nature camping ethos is easier said than done. How refreshing it is, then, to find a site as subtly sublime as Sloeberry Farm in West Wales – a place where glamping is done right.

The first thing that strikes you about the place when you arrive is the sheer space of it all. The buttercup-dotted meadows and naturally irregular lines of mature trees seem to have been left to their own devices. Bushes bulge and tiny birds flitter along the hedge lines. For children, the exploration opportunities are endless.

The accommodation, meanwhile, seems to fit within the space just as a harmoniously as a herd of cows might have done some years ago. Things seem right. There are six creamy bell tents, with a firepit, picnic table and deck chairs outside giving it all a very classic camping look, while two ginormous canvas lodges in another meadow are built of wood and a forest-green canvas that camouflages them among the surroundings. The immediate appearance is of a good old-fashioned farm campsite with ample space to roam.

Inside is where the magic happens. Bell tents feature mattresses, duvets, cooking equipment and old-style lanterns, while the canvas lodges have a wonderfully exposed wooden interior with a log-burning stove, deep red sofas and beds for up to seven people. At the back there’s an en-suite washroom and each has it’s own private shower, plus there’s a BBQ for enjoying some alfresco dining out on your veranda.

All of the bell tents have access to the toilets and gas-powered showers hidden in traditional-style wooden huts at the bottom of the meadow. There are also plenty of interesting finds dotted around the farm. For starters there’s the small, private lake, glistening delightfully when the sun is out, where you can watch pond skaters darting across its surface and dragonflies zipping overhead. There’s also a lovely old, tin-roofed barn in the farmyard itself, its corrugated metal partially rusted, as if a giant orange crayon has been run along its surface.

From the farm you can join local lanes and footpaths heading down to the coast – it's about a three-mile walk all the way down to Aberporth beach. Or you can drive there and enjoy a walk along the coastal path instead. The choice is yours but when you stay at Sloeberry Farm you’re certainly starting in the right place!

The Owner Says

(info supplied by the campsite)

Hi we're Jo, Shaun and Mabel.

We love this place so much we gave up our jobs and moved our family to set up Sloeberry Farm on the beautiful west coast of Wales so more people could discover the area.  Our site is tiny with bell tents scattered across the meadows and a couple of lodges for those that fancy something a little different.

But rather than hear it from us, this is what some of our guests  have said

"Loved the location, site, field, facilities, & family. There is nothing not to like about Sloeberry Farm it is idyllic & one of those gems you stumble across from time to time. We had never glamped before but we feel we couldn't have picked a better place to do it. It's only a few miles from lots of stunning locations. The beaches near by are superb. Really can not fault the place in any way. We loved it & would love to return one day!!!"

“Sloeberry Farm really do provide pretty much everything you need for a camping trip, and if you've forgot anything like wellies they even have some stuff they can lend you in emergencies! If you do visit I can guarantee you'll want to stay, we loved the ample space between tents so noise was never an issue! Plus the fact that it's not crowded means facilities stay much cleaner and no queues for showers and toilets.”

“Warm cosy bed, super clean shower and toilets. Peaceful remote location ideal to just relax and not so far away from local amenities. Owners were on hand on arrival told you everything you needed to know then left us to it which was great! But did let us know where they would be if we needed anything! Great little weekend away will definitely be coming back soon! We’ll be coming back to explore more of Cardigan”

But our favourite was from the children ……”The kids say... 'The tent was big, round and pointy. I liked how they set up the wooden path to get into the tent. The toilet roll holder was a stick. The wind-break around the cooker was cool. The beds were really warm and comfy. The sound of the rain on the tent in the night-time. The shadows of the grass around tent in the morning were really lovely. The shadow of the slug on the tent was funny too. Running through the long grass and getting wet feet was fun. The cats and the dog were really happy and fluffy because the people who own them were happy and fluffy too.' Maddie (7) & Ruby (4)”
