Nom Nom…Hic!

For us, going on holiday means…FOOD!

So, we aim to make cooking and eating here a pleasure.  Cook indoors in the pig shed or outside over your camp fire.  We supply EVERYTHING you might need, from cutlery to coffee percolator, tea towels to salad bowls. Just bring food.

On Site

The kitchen in the pig shed has 2, four ring gas hobs, a large fridge & food storage boxes for all your supplies.  There are also some basic ingredients to get you started. For a comprehensive list of kitchen equipment check here.  A huge table takes centre stage, seating everyone on site; Perfect for getting to know your fellow campers over breakfast.  Or the kids can do art work at one end, whilst you cook up a feast for their dinner at the other end, and somebody plays cards over a glass of wine in the middle.

When it comes to shopping for food we encourage you to support our local community by shopping locally.  We shop here:

Blaencamel Farm organic vegetables- Enjoy fresh vegetables, grown within 3 miles from our site.

Treberfedd Farm organic beef, lamb and eggs from friends of ours up the road, pop in to their farm shop for something delicious for the barbecue.

Watson & Pratts– Based in Lampeter, 10 miles from us, this is an independent food shop & bakery.  Offering a genuine alternative to the supermarket shop, selling mainly organic produce.  The BEST local bakery to us, so worth the trip for the bread alone.

As for supermarkets, there is a small Sainsbury’s and a Cooperative in Lampeter (10 miles), a Tesco in Cardigan (14 miles) and a larger Morrison’s, Tesco and M&S in Aberystwyth (14 miles).

 

Cooking Outdoors

Light up the campfire and put on the kettle for tea, or make dinner- we provide everything you need for cooking over the fire.

Each den has a tripod over the campfire, from which you can choose to hang a barbecue or big stew pot. We provide some outdoor cookbooks to get you inspired and some basic essential ingredients to get you started- what we provide.
