A little bit about us and our glamping site in West Wales

Welcome to West Wales.

Pant Yr Hwch, our lovely smallholding is located three miles from the university and market town of Lampeter in the tranquil, rolling countryside of West Wales.

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 and the whole of West Wales when honeymooning here in a long time ago and we spent almost a decade looking for the right place to set up a glamping site.

We opened in 2017 and we are (a little) more wrinkly and have a few more grey hairs than when we started but we still absolutely love everything about the farm, the views, the animals and this unspoilt corner of  West Wales....and hope you will too.

Our farm

The 11 acre smallholding has a small flock of very cheeky sheep, three unruly pigs, a flock of chickens and a Welsh heritage orchard.

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.

Our Suppliers

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 in Ceredigion.

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 ketchup and pasta and all important marshmallows.

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.
