40 acres of natural, imagination-firing space in which to roam.

'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). 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.

The Owner Says

(info supplied by the campsite)

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. 

The Eco Campsite at Denmark Farm Conservation Centre, West Wales, is ready to welcome you for a family holiday, weekend eco break or for group camping and yurt hire.

Let your children have an adventure they will never forget on our 'Wild In The Woods' activity days, throughout school holidays 2016. 

New for 2016 we will be offering a fully furnished yurt (sleeping up to 4) and upgrading our glamping facilities. Keep an eye on our website for more details and special offers.

At the end of the summer holidays there will be a very exclusive Family Bushcraft weekend with options for camping, hiring our yurt or sleeping in our self-catering Eco Lodge.

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.

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.
