The Owner Says

The Glamavan is a very fun retro-chic vintage-style static caravan which sleeps up to five, but is equally a romantic bolthole for couples. Set in its own gardens along a charming chestnut paling fence it has commanding views over the Teifi Valley and organic farm.  It has a double bedroom (135cm/4'6" wide double bed) and a twin bedroom (60cm/2' wide, 165cm/5'6"ft long beds – shorter than average, suitable for children and small adults). There is a sofa bed in the bay window for a fifth person. A fully fitted kitchen fulfills all your culinary needs – a gas cooker with eye level grill, toaster, kettle, microwave and fridge with small ice box. There is a shower and toilet in the bathroom. For entertainment there are games, a TV with DVD player and a Robert's Radio. A BBQ and outdoor furniture is in the private established garden. When it gets chilly there are electric radiators and a heated towel rail. All linen and towels are provided (but please bring your own beach towels). With just the chickens for neighbours, who could ask for more? There is a Wendy House nearby, a washing line and outdoor tap. Breakfast is available in the farmhouse, order the night before and choose from an extensive local organic menu. The farm shop is stocked full of convenient goodies and a loaf of bread can be made for you, with 24 hours notice.

Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm is a working farm set in beautiful West Wales. Here is a place where you can experience peace and tranquillity – unwind surrounded by green fields, with wonderful views. There is birdsong all day and a dark sky at night to observe unpolluted heavens. Just a short drive will take you to the dramatic coast of Cardigan Bay with its magnificent sandy beaches, the coastal path and Bottlenose Dolphins. Drink at local microbreweries, eat wood-fired pizzas, walk to the gin distillery and cheesemaker. The farm itself prides itself on its green credentials and award-winning accommodation. There is a games barn with table tennis and pool table – a refuge from the elements and a cool space when it's sunny. The farm shop is stocked with local organic produce and homemade bread to order. Organic breakfasts are available to all guests in the imposing traditional farmhouse.

Picture yourself gathered around a campfire on a warm summers evening surrounded by ancient ash trees. Look up and watch the swallows, red kites, buzzards and later on the bats and owls. With just the scent of roses and honeysuckle and wood smoke what more could you want? Isn’t it every camper's dream to find such a place, where you can be alone in a secluded glade with only your friends and family? Walk from the doorstep around the lush 60-acre farm, climb Mary’s hill, find the dingly dell, pooh corner and the sound of music trees and help collect the eggs in the morning.

Activities

It's a short drive to Cardigan Bay, famous for its bottlenose dolphins. The Ceredigion Heritage Coast is home to lovely seaside towns and villages like Llangrannog – where you can even go dry-slope skiing – and New Quay, a wonderful little fishing village a few miles south from the colourful harbour town of Aberaeron. There's a host of good beaches and an array of great walking routes, while further south the Pembrokeshire Coast Path takes in the best of the National Park and its dramatic coastline, as does the longer Wales Coast Path. The National Wool Museum (free entry) is a short drive from the farm, while Newcastle Emlyn is 10 minutes away and boasts the ruins of a 13th century castle, good restaurants, and a country market every Friday. The River Teifi offers trout fishing, walking trails and canoeing in most places.  This is a great area for Coasteering.  There is a comprehensive list of things to do and places to eat in this fabulous area on our website  www/organicfarmwales.co.uk.
