Spy real, live dragonflies dancing over lily-rich ponds as you head out in search of sleepy dragons in the wooded wonderland at this quiet eco site

'There are dragons in there!’ one young camper enthused as we made our way into the dark woodland adjoining the camping meadow at Denmark Farm. Fearing for our safety, the gallant squire grabbed his trusty sword (ok, so it was a long stick) and rushed past us with a chivalrous, ’And I’m going to get them’.

Although we didn’t encounter any dragons during the visit, their presence is eminently plausible at this Welsh conservation site, situated among the green humps and bumps of Celtic Ceredigion. You wouldn’t blame the mystical creatures for slumbering off the effects of battling with medieval knights in a centuries-long hibernation somewhere within this 40-acre treasure trove of landscape.

Encirling the camping meadow are woods and fields and ponds that have been slowly nursed back to life from the land owner’s farming days. A commendable job has been carried out by Denmark Farm Conservation Centre in helping nature to restore the site, much to the joy of the local flora and fauna (dragonflies included).

There is room in the gently sloping meadow for around 20 people at any one time, with only tents allowed, plus a yurt for non-campers. A small, open fronted kitchen, made from sustainably sourced timber, is available for all guests to use and, while there are two composting toilets in the camping meadow, flushing loos and showers are open 24-hours-a-day in the Conversvation Centre building.

Pathways that lead through the woods beckon you towards fairy-tale adventures, one leading to a magical roundhouse, another to a spiky hide – is it a bird or a hedgehog? – by the long lake. Just be careful where you step; you wouldn’t want to awaken any dragons – at least, not unless you have your own little St. George to hand.

Details

Facilities

Acres of meadows and woodland to explore and enjoy. Nature trails are waymarked across the site. Denmark Farm Conservation Centre also runs courses such as willow weaving, green wood working, textiles, and other natural crafts, conservation, species identification, children's activities and more outdoor educational fun – so do check if anything’s going on during your stay. A small natural play area is also being developed. In the adjacent woodland you’ll find the communal kitchen, a neat little wooden hut with a sink (there’s a standpipe for cold water in the field), double-ring gas stove, a couple of big saucepans and a kettle. A little further into the woodland is the compost loo – near enough not to be a long trek from your tent, but far enough away for privacy. New for this season is a Utility room with washing machine and dryer available for campers for a donation. Also in the utility room is a useful sink with hot running water and a table, chairs and some books and games for those rainy evenings. On booking, campers are provided with detailed notes for their arrival (the campsite is only staffed during office hours) and a helpful map. Included is the code to get into the building for use of the showers (1 each in for ladies and gents) and loos (2 each). There’s also a wetroom for those with mobility difficulties. The Bunkhouse/dorms are also located within this building. There’s another compost loo near the wildlife garden. Campfires are permitted in a communal campfire circle and firewood can be purchased for £5 per bag. A fire wok and charcoal can also be hired at time of booking if you prefer a more private experience.
