#1 of 14 Speciality lodging in Lampeter
We run a small luxury glamping site from our smallholding set in the heart of rural West Wales. Set between the mountains and the sea (and within easy reach of both) we are well placed for you to explore this incredible part of rural Wales. Our luxury safari tents sleep up to 6 people in proper beds, but are also perfect for a cosy couples retreat. The safari tents have flushing toilets, running water, leather sofas, well stocked kitchen and dining areas. We hope we have thought of everything so you should only need to bring clothes, food and friends. One of our tents comes with a wood-fired hot tub and all of them are equipped with outdoor furniture, BBQs and fire pits to make the most of the outdoors. There is plenty to do on the farm for kids (big or little) and lots to explore on the doorstep. Come and stay with us and soak up incredible night skies, the sounds of birdsong, the culture, the heritage, the food and the amazing coastline.

Can't recommend this highly enough! Super professional yet relaxed hosts, everything to such a high standard. The safari tents are pristine, well equipped and comfortable. The farm is great and enough to spend a weekend without leaving but not too far from New Quay and Aberaeron which have great sandy beaches, walks and lovely places to eat, the Cellar and Harbourmaster being two great spots and Honey Icecream, . You won't regret it. Go now.

This is the only way to camp, it’s home from home with all the luxuries you could hope for. The first thing you notice when you arrive is how spotlessly clean everything is, the furniture, linens, kitchen equipment even the wooden floorboards are shining. It’s immaculately well maintained. Everything you can possibly need has been thought of and provided and the little extras like tea, coffee and marshmallows that were gifted really made us feel so welcome. Our children absolutely loved exploring the farm land and making friends with the girls who live on the farm and who were perfect tour guides/friends. They also loved feeding all the farm animals. We took our dog who also had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed the freedom of roaming the fields. There is no doubt we will be return visitors. Big shout out to Dan, Ellie, Lyra & Isis for a warm welcome and a great weekend.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay and have had the most amazing time. The setting of the site is stunning and the views and tranquility are second to none. We stayed in a glamping tent which was the most well equipped we’ve ever stayed in before. Every detail was well thought out and everything catered for. The hot tub was an amazing bonus each night after a long day out and all the walking we did. We loved roasting marshmallows on the fire each night and watching the sunsets! The highlight of the stay for the children was being able to feed the animals, in particular the pigs! Both the children said it was their favourite experience and now want pigs! Dan and Ellie were amazing hosts, checking we had everything we needed and offering advice on places to visit and trips out each day. I cannot fault a single thing about our stay. I loved that we were able to spend time as a family and talk, play games and reconnect - and not an electronic gadget in sight! Before we even had the seatbelts on in the car to return home the children had decided it was the best trip yet and I had to promise we would return - and we most definitely will. Thank you so much for such an amazing week!

We stayed in the cottage "beudy bach", which looks out on to a wildlife pond and the valley. Stunning location for scenery, enhanced by the chickens, sheep and ducks that live there, along with Dan & Ellie and family. The cottage has a wood fired hot tub that looks out onto the pond and beyond, and is really cosy and comfortable inside, perfect for two. Well equipped for just about anything self catering wise, including a fire pit to cook on outside as well as a traditional aga stove and conventional oven. Perfect for a peaceful, relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend.

For the third winter in a row we spent three nights in the barn. Really, everything about this site is perfect. Dan and Ellie are the best hosts, you’ll never get better ones. They’ve put their heart into developing a beautiful getaway from scratch and their pride in showing it and their wonderful family (2 girls and so many animals!) shines through in every visit. The barn has been converted with a real attention to high quality. I could list all the individual elements but really just look at the pictures - if anything they don’t do the place justice. It’s faultless. The same is true of the hot tub which I think we’ve used at least three times every day of every visit. Although we haven’t stayed in the safari tents we have taken a look inside and seen them being built over various visits. Like the rest of the site they reap the benefit of Dan and Ellie’s passion to create something beautiful. And it’s the hosts really who are the stars of the show. Dan and Ellie strike the perfect balance of being totally non intrusive but always on hand if you need them. We love catching up with them and their lovely girls and animals, and chatting about / seeing their new developments (visiting in the winter when the tent part of the site is closed). They’ve recently won both regional and national awards and I think it’s only a matter of time before they have to build a trophy cabinet (which no doubt will be done to the highest standards!). Thanks Dan and Ellie, hope to see you again next year!!

Aw what a wonderful review, (it must be a little dusty in here tonight!) thank you so much for taking the time to write it and for being so generous. We love the place and are so glad that comes though :) It was so lovely to see you both again, please do come back anytime. Thanks again, Ellie & Dan (and the rest of the motley crew!)
