Henfryn Farm The Greener Camping Club

UK Wales Mid Wales Ceredigion

Glamping bell tents nestled on the banks of the River Teifi in West Wales

A shingle bank on the opposite side of the Teifi makes the perfect spot to practice your skimming at Henfryn Farm. Weedy, wild grasses sprout from the surface like tufts of natural hair and the choice of fine, flat stones mean those in the know have ample choice on offer. Pick up your chosen cobble, place it flatly in your palm and send it out across the river, skipping along the water until it plops delicately beneath the surface. With enough practice you could even enter yourself into the Welsh Open Skimming Championships around an hours drive away. The winner is given his own special pebble and crowned the Welsh Champion Tosser – though, we’re not sure whether that’s a title to strive for or not.

Tucked down the rural lanes of West Wales, the simple pleasure of sitting in your deck chair as the kids skim stones in the sun is just one of many dreamy scenarios at this small-scale, organic farm. Home to a herd of traditional Hereford-cross cattle and fluffy Llanwenog sheep, Henfryn Farm is the sort of effortlessly attractive place that has little in the way of man-made attractions, yet somehow provides endless fun for all the family. The surrounding landscape is riddled with excellent footpaths to explore, while the aforementioned river – languid and inviting – is also perfect for boating and dabbling along the edges (though the bank closest to the bell tent is steep so kids should be careful). The two farm dogs are friendly and playful and the organic status of the farm, including adjoining acres of SSSI landscape, mean wildlife is bountiful.

The site itself is made up of just two secluded camping pitches, a trio of fully furnished bell tents and a shepherd’s hut with a built in bed, kitchen area and wood burning stove. All the glamping structures are dotted around in their own private spaces – one bell tent overlooks an open hay meadow, another is directly on the riverside – and, though entirely off-grid, the homely abodes are kitted out with comforts in mind. There is a double bed in each bell tent, accompanied by either a double futon or a pair of inflatable beds. Along with bedding and linen, they also include wood-burning stoves for cooler evenings, plus all the pots, pans and crockery you need for cooking up some fresh meat bought from the farm shop.

The more adventurous, of course, bring their own tents along and try cooking over the open campfire – fires are an encouraged part of the outdoor experience here. To top it off, you can enjoy your molten marshmallows with a bottle of the farm’s own home-brewed cider, made with apples from the orchards around the campsite. A homemade treat at a homely little campsite. We’ll cheers to that.

The campsite owner says

We like to think Henfryn offers our guest as chance to escape the business of everyday life, relax and get back to nature. Our site is embedded in in our 50 acre organic farm on the banks of the river Teifi. We have just 3 Bell Tents, a Safari Tent,  a Shepherd’s Hut  Complete with a new woodfired hot tub) and 2 camping pitches nestled in the flower filled hay meadows, all set to the soothing soundtrack of the river. Henfryn is more than just a place to stay, it’s a chance to become part of our ecosystem! As our guest, you can collect fresh eggs for breakfast, sample our succulent home reared Hereford beef for dinner and later enjoy a glass of our authentic cider as you sit back and take in the peace and tranquillity of the place. We can offer a guided tour of the farm or show you how the cider is made, and after that, you can try your hand at kayaking on the river, or just paddle, or head off to the beach or even roll the roof back on our classic Citroen 2cv and explore the secrets of the West Wales Countryside. A truly warm farmhouse welcome awaits you at Henfryn Farm.
