Our lovely farm is located three miles from the university and market town of Lampeter in the tranquil, rolling countryside of Ceredigion.
We are Dan & Ellie, one time city dwellers who have broken free to raise our kids (and menagerie of animals) in the idyllic Welsh countryside.
We fell in love with Ceredigion when honeymooning here over 10 years ago and have spent the last decade looking for the right smallholding to set up a glamping site and raise marginally feral children. We are (a little) more wrinkly and have a few more grey hairs than when we started our search but we think the wait has been well worth it.
We love the farm, the views, the animals and everything about this unspoilt corner of Wales....and hope you will too.
The working 11 acre smallholding has a small flock of badger faced sheep know as 'Toddu' a rare Welsh breed, a Welsh heritage orchard and a flock of predominately rare breed chickens.
In the skies above the farm you will see red kites, buzzards and the occasional sparrow hawk as well as a host of garden and woodland birds such as woodpeckers, coal tits, tree creepers, nut hatches and goldfinches to name a few.
The pond on site is home to a host of amphibia and is the perfect spot for a bit of pond dipping (a pond dipping kit can be borrowed from the honesty shop), or to watch the sunset.
We think it is a lovely spot to sit and watch the world go by, and kids love exploring and generally running wild on the farm.
All guests are very welcome to get involved in the day to day running of the farm. Come feed the animals, collect eggs and harvest fruit and vegetables with us.
We source as much as we can locally. In doing so we have discovered some amazing craftspeople. Our woodburning Chilli Penguin stoves are made on the Llyn peninsula by Karen and Steve, our handcrafted tables are made by a carpenter called Huw just a few miles away.
Peirs is the carpenter that built our oak kitchen cabinets, the natural Welsh slate tops come from Harri and Mike Wilson about 5 miles away. Finally the cosy duvets that keep you warm at night come from Baavet, a small Welsh company specialising in making woollen duvets. Our tents are made by Bond in Stroud (we couldn't find anyone in Wales that made them and Michelle and Mike are brilliant) and they have been erected by local tradespeople.
If you would like more information on any of our suppliers please don't hesitate to ask.
The honesty shop
On site we have a small farm shop stocking basic essential items like excellent coffee and all important marshmallows, as well as home made cakes, biscuits, jams and chutneys.
We are lucky to know some wonderful craftspeople so have some lovely handcrafted gifts in stock.
You can also borrow bug hunting and pond dipping kits and books from here.
