The camp field forms part of the 15 acre site, half of which is managed on a conservation basis – this comprises a species-rich wetland meadow and several acres of bog willow ‘wilderness’ which also contains an amazing 2 acre hidden lake surrounded by beautiful reed beds. The land is bordered by the river Seiont – one of the areas principle trout and salmon rivers.
There is an abundance of riches in this area. Every day you can see kingfishers, spotted woodpeckers, little grebes, coots, buzzards, peregrines, ravens. The scrubby willow is a great place to watch summer migrants such as warblers and flycatchers. The abundance of flowering plants and grass species on the meadow attract a profusion of insect species – in spring and summer you can walk through swarms of electric-blue damselflies. We also have resident adders in this field.
We have a couple of sheep that graze the land, and various friends graze their horses on the big field next to the campsite.
We have the fishing rights to a quarter-mile stretch of the river Seiont. The river (and lake) contain beautiful wild brown trout, sea trout and salmon. During the fishing season you can fish this stretch providing you have a license from the Environment Agency. We stipulate certain rules and regulations to help maintain the quality of the river and fish stocks. We charge £10 per rod per day.
