A cool retro-chic caravan on an organic farm near Cardigan Bay

The glamping at Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm comes with vintage style and views of the Teifi Valley. From the outside, The Glamavan is a single static caravan in an enviable location but step inside and you are transported to another era. Carefully-sourced vintage furniture and cool retro fabrics combine with mod cons to make glamping accommodation that is as stylish as it is comfortable. And it’s all within the glorious rural surroundings of west Wales, not far from Cardigan Bay.

The Glamavan sits in its own lovely little garden at Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm where there’s also a five-pitch campsite, a farm shop and a couple of self-catering cabins and rooms. It’s been lovingly created and cared for by kind and capable couple, Amanda and Ken, who’ve lived on this land for more than 25 years. Their organic approach to farming, the sustainable products stocked in the shop and the eco-friendly holidays they offer show how much they love this place – and it’s rather hard not to.

Step outside your comfy caravan and you are surrounded by nature with red kites swooping overhead and garden birds chattering in trees. The sights and sounds of the farm are entertainment enough for some but there’s a games room too, with table tennis, a pool table and more. Off site, the west coast of Wales beckons. It’s a 30-minute drive to the charming fishing village of New Quay and the sandy beaches of Cardigan Bay. It's just a little further to reach Cardigan itself and Pembrokeshire. Excellent fishing and pleasant walks can be found closer by on the banks of the River Teifi, the longest river in Wales and the natural sculptor of the views you enjoy from the comfort of the Glamavan.

Sun of a Pitch
Camping in the land of castles
we’ve been” weekend “ camping for a couple of years and decided as we loved it so much we’d do a week somewhere special and boy did we find that at Nantgwynfaen -amazing scenery, wonderful hosts in Ken & Amanda (you must get a loaf from Ken!). We had ‘sun of a pitch’ and it was stunning! Red Kites flying so close on the first day followed by rabbits, horses, stoat/pine marten (not sure) and a skylark! And that’s all “on-site!” We travelled to see dolphins, red kites being fed and water buffalo in the Teifi marshes - you absolutely should come here - so much to do and so much not to do! We had THE most relaxing time - thank you Amanda & Ken - not forgetting the dogs and their pig! X

The Glamavan
The Glamavan is such a wonderfully quirky, yet spacious place to stay. Amanda and Ken have put so much thought and work into everything and we had everything we could possibly need. Best of all, the added extras were all sustainable products which was really in keeping with our values as a family. The farm was a gorgeous place to wander around and there was always a bunny or two hopping about, as well as the resident cats and friendly dogs. The farm shop was a great bonus too, plenty of varied produce for all dietry requirements, and the honesty system works really well. Ken and Amanda were always around if we needed anything, but we had plenty of space and privacy too. I would highly recommend Nantgwynfaen 😊

Pitch Perfect
Fantastic site with great hosts. The individual pitches are widely spaced so there is a real sense that you have the place to yourself. Great honesty farm shop where you can stock up on pretty much anything you need. Really can't recommend enough!

Love At First SITE
Just got home from a wonderful 3 night stay camping in ‘Love at first Site’. Nantgwynfaen is in a beautiful and peaceful location and having no mobile signal was a bonus. Loved getting back to nature with the outside shower and was pleasantly surprised by the amazing organic and eco friendly shop! You literally don’t need to leave if you don’t want to! Every thing there for a lovely relaxing stay 🥰 Our dog Twiggy also had a fab time with walks on the beaches and lazing in the sun back at the farm.

Wonderful stay in Ty Mamgu, a cosy cabin with beautiful decor, every last detail and immaculately presented. Lovely eggs, milk and waffles as a welcome gift. Beautiful sunsets, lovely pub just down the road - The Daffodil. Lots of walks nearby and quiet sandy beaches. It was just bliss and can't wait to go back! We have stayed in two other glamping sites nearby but very happy we have discovered Nantgwynfaen.

Great place to go if you want to relax, unwind and just chill with nature. Ken and Amanda are awesome hosts, always there if you need them but give you plenty of space to enjoy your hols. I stayed on Son of a Pitch which has it's own outdoor shower and washing sink, it's a private pitch with great views over the valley, there's also a gate you can close which stopped my dog from wandering around the farm, which was cool. There's a great farm shop which sells pretty much everything you need all locally sourced, also Ken makes a great flower pot loaf, well worth checking out. There are loads of walks direct from the farm in some beautiful countryside, with stunning views. I'll definitely be going again, it's such a nice place to relax, unwind and not think about work haha.

From the host
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 is sunny. The farm shop is stocked with local organic produce and homemade bread to order. 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 campers dream to find such a place where you can be alone in a secluded glade with only your friends and family? Walks 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. If camping is not for you and you always wanted to experience glamping, The Glamavan is the perfect solution. Here you can experience the same benefits as the campers, but enjoy the luxury of your own home in a vintage-style retro-chic static caravan. With crisp cotton sheets and all the conveniences of a well-equipped home, this is deluxe camping, the answer for anyone who wants camp effortlessly. If it is home comforts you are after Nantgwynfaen Organic Farm also offers farmhouse accommodation in Y Parlwr Bach (self-catering, sleeps 2+2) and has 2 cottages: Ty Mamgu cabin (Grandma's House), sleeps 2), and Ty Nodyn cottage (sleeps 3+1) with its quirky decor amazing bed framed by 2 up-cycled pianos.
Nearby attractions

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 the site's own website.

Food and drink

There's a farm shop on site specialising in organic produce, some fresh from the farm, and sustainable goods. Don't miss the chance to enjoy a loaf of fresh flowerpot bread baked by Ken (just order 24 hours in advance). A couple of miles down the road lies The Daffodil Inn (01559 370343) at Penrhiwllan, a cracking gastropub (listed in the Michelin Guide) with stunning views of the Teifi Valley countryside from its dining room. Teifi Cheese Farm is very nearby and is a lovely place to stock up on local cheese and buy award winning botanical and seaweed gin from their organic distillery (book to go on a distillery tour). Cardigan is a great place to eat in. Buy local crab and other delicacies from the Tuesday Market in St Dogmaels then eat at Pizza Tipi, Crwst, Bara Menyn (amazing sour dough) and El Salsa Mexican street food (you might need a couple of trips!). Fantastic fresh organic vegetables are grown at Glebelands Market Garden (Thurs-Sat) at St Dogmaels and there is a very nice well stocked village shop at Penrhiwllan Stores.
