Glamping on a former farm and working mill with a private lake, plenty of space to explore and stunning views across the Welsh countryside

Planning a glamping site may seem simple at first – buy some accommodation, fill it with the most luxurious items you can find and install some plush facilities – but the reality of blending these comforts with the back-to-nature camping ethos is easier said than done. How refreshing it is, then, to find a site as subtly sublime as Sloeberry Farm in West Wales – a place where glamping is done right.

The first thing that strikes you about the place when you arrive is the sheer space of it all. The buttercup-dotted meadows and naturally irregular lines of mature trees seem to have been left to their own devices. Bushes bulge and tiny birds flitter along the hedge lines. For children, the exploration opportunities are endless.

The accommodation, meanwhile, seems to fit within the space just as a harmoniously as a herd of cows might have done some years ago. Things seem right. There are six creamy bell tents, with a firepit, picnic table and deck chairs outside giving it all a very classic camping look, while two ginormous canvas lodges in another meadow are built of wood and a forest-green canvas that camouflages them among the surroundings. The immediate appearance is of a good old-fashioned farm campsite with ample space to roam. Little wonder then that Sloeberry Farm was awarded the prestigious Gold Award by Visit Wales in 2019.

Inside is where the magic happens. Bell tents feature mattresses, duvets, cooking equipment and old-style lanterns, while the canvas lodges have a wonderfully exposed wooden interior with a log-burning stove, deep red sofas and beds for up to seven people. At the back there’s an en-suite washroom and each has it’s own private shower, plus there’s a BBQ for enjoying some alfresco dining out on your veranda.

All of the bell tents have access to the toilets and gas-powered showers hidden in traditional-style wooden huts at the bottom of the meadow. There are also plenty of interesting finds dotted around the farm. For starters there’s the small, private lake, glistening delightfully when the sun is out, where you can watch pond skaters darting across its surface and dragonflies zipping overhead. There’s also a lovely old, tin-roofed barn in the farmyard itself, its corrugated metal partially rusted, as if a giant orange crayon has been run along its surface.

From the farm you can join local lanes and footpaths heading down to the coast – it's about a three-mile walk all the way down to Aberporth beach. Or you can drive there and enjoy a walk along the coastal path instead. The choice is yours but when you stay at Sloeberry Farm you’re certainly starting in the right place!

Nearby

Lonely Planet recently voted Cardigan Bay "the best place to be in the world right now" and it certainly fits the bill with it's mix of fantastic beaches and coastal villages, yet still retaining a relatively uncrowded feel, especially out of peak season. Cliff walks on the coastal path, sandy bays and National Trust-owned beaches are the highlights. By car, the town of Cardigan is not far away, formed around a Norman castle which is open to the public and boasts a great café and frequent outdoor events. Nearby Cilgerran Castle (01239 621339) still welcomes visitors – its two massive drum towers dominate the surroundings. North, picture perfect New Quay has a cobbled stone harbour – with plenty of cafés and fantastic chippies, it's a great place to enjoy the views and spot the Cardigan Bay dolphins

Food & Drink

The nearest pub, the Penllwyndu Inn (01239 682533), is an easy mile and a half walk away – don’t be put off by the hangman's noose sign! There are plenty of other places to eat and drink within within easy striking distance but the nearest are either in Cardigan (5 miles) or Aberporth (3 miles). The former has plenty of choice, plus a supermarket for supplies, while the latter is slightly smaller but has a great fish and chip shop (01239 811003) next door to The Ship Inn (01239 810822), both of which have excellent views of the beach.

Opening Times

March–December.

Family Friendly

Getting back to nature doesn't mean giving up every modern luxury – as Sloeberry Farm shows – but there are some that you'll certainly not need while you're here. Put down the iPads, switch off the Kindle, throw away their phones and let the kids loose.
