 I stayed with Karen and Ricci at TOPO Camping in September, partway through a long, hard charity cycle tour.

I was run down, exhausted and very smelly, having cycled a very hilly 60 miles that day. As I got closer, Karen and Ricci were waiting outside to welcome me in, with a warm hello.

Their campsite is in an idyllic location, in perfect solitude. The low-impact commitment was inspiring and I enjoyed one of the best showers of my whole 40-day trip.

That evening, Karen brought me a pot of tea, showed me around their garden wonders and introduced me to their lovely chickens.

We all chatted for some time about camping, the world and chickens. I feel like I made friends that evening.

For dinner, I also got to cook some of their delicious homegrown veggies on the campstove.

It was perfect and exactly what I needed. My only complaint is that I couldn't stay there for longer!

 This is a special campsite. This is due to the combination of the wonderfully warm welcome from Karen and Rikki, the amazing breakfasts they provide (to your tent!) and the well thought out eco campsite they have created.

Everything has been thought through from the well designed kitchen area and eco loos to the vegetable and herb gardens that you are invited to help yourself from.

They have created the campsite they would like to visit - and have succeeded so well.

 We read glowing reviews before booking and can say that they were all very accurate.

Karen and Rikki were incredibly welcoming and friendly. The campsite is in a beautiful location and close to many points of interest.

You can tell that the site owners frequently camped for their holidays as they had thought of everything. A well stocked shed had absolutely anything you would need! Games, matches, tables, sleeping bags, even a spare tent!

The site was in a dark skies area. So we were lucky to have beautiful sites of the night sky and the milky way. It was also incredibly quiet and peaceful. Karen and Rikki have created a rare and niche place which is ideal for a relaxing camping trip.

The breakfasts were incredible, and to be able to book a full English whilst camping is pretty special!

There was a lot of care into the eco aspect of the campsite too. It was our first experience of using a compost toilet but we were both pleasantly surprised as everything was neat, tidy and clean. The polytunnel with freshly grown veg and herbs which you could help yourself too and contribute to the honesty box was another very special touch.

We will definitely be returning to this special place and can fully recommend! I wish were could rate higher than 10 for customer service on here! Book now to avoid disappointment 😊.

Thanks for a lovely stay Karen and Rikki!

 This is one of the loveliest campsites I have stayed at. Karen and Rikki were so helpful and kind.

I had a coffee on arrival which was so welcome after the drive. As an extra you can have a full English breakfast delivered to your tent, I had a veggie one and it was awesome.

In fact I had two which sets you up totally for a hard day hiking (or sight seeing).

The site is beautifully kept and it was exactly as they described on their website.

A real gem of a find and such a peaceful location.

I would definitely recommend it and I will be returning.

 What a wonderful two nights we've just spent at Karen and Rikki's eco friendly campsite.

They are perfect hosts-kindly and welcoming, they really have thought of everything you might need, and it is a complete delight to camp in their fields in deepest Carmarthenshire,

Close to the river with lovely views of the surrounding hills and woodland. Red kites soaring overhead,

The most delicious cooked breakfast delivered, piping hot, to the tent and the loan of a hot water bottle. Bliss.

We left completely relaxed and are already planning to return. Thank you.

 Highly recommend if your looking for an exceptional campsite for peace and quiet, escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we will definitely be returning!

Karen and Rikki were just amazing and so thoughtful welcoming us with hot drinks, giving us the choice where we wanted to pitch, giving us the use of the outbuilding to hang up and keep our motorbike clothing dry, providing a very good value for money cooked breakfast which we ordered the day before, all fresh, locally sourced produce, the eggs were so tasty from their beautiful rescue chickens!

I loved the huge private shower the water was hot and powerful.

We canít explain how great our stay was, thank you Karen and Rikki you went above and beyond and nothing was ever too much trouble, going out of your way to make sure we had everything we needed, a fire pit, kindling and logs, including a marquee when rain had been forecast so we could sit out and enjoy our last evening by the fire!

 Lovely peaceful site in the Teifi valley, with good (if hilly) cycling to be had.

Facilities very clean and tidy, and the shower a real treat. Owners very welcoming.

Highly recommended if you are looking for tranquility.

 Just back from a 3 night break at this lovely campsite - definitely the nicest site we have ever been on and we have done a lot of camping.

If you want peace and tranquility then this is the place for you - two large meadows so plenty of room to pitch where you want. Amazing views, red kites and buzzards overhead, firepits available and wonderful walks from the site.

New for this season, Karen and Rikki have built a fantastic shower which was hot and powerful and a great addition. We had the most amazing homecooked breakfast, cooked by Karen, using local sourced ingredients and delivered to our tent piping hot - it was absolutely delicious.

We are hoping to visit again this year as still so much to see and do in the local area.

Karen and Rikki were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble for them and they should be very proud of what they have achieved

 Lovely site, with friendly, helpful owners. We were looking for a quiet, adult only site, and this was just what we wanted. Fire-pits and wood can be provided - lovely on a cool evening! Washing up area, with hot water, and fridge freezer available, along with eggs from rescue chickens, and veg and herbs from the garden.

Although only 2 units at a time are allowed at the moment, due to Covid-19, there is plenty of space for their allowed number of 6. There are no showers on the site, but should be availabe next year (hence the score of 9 for facilities.

The surrounding countryside is fantastic, with Brechfa Forest only a few miles away, for cycling and walking, and the coast is about 40 mins drive.

 This is a small, peaceful and beautiful campsite where you can really get away from it all. Everything was so well set up, with many thoughtful touches from the owners.

Karen and Rikki were extremely welcoming and the optional cooked breakfast delivered to the tent was a complete treat and absolutely delicious!

With produce from the vegetable garden available to guests, eggs from ex-battery hens, a composting toilet and more, the site certainly lives up to its 'Eco-camping' name.

We had a wonderful week staying here and would highly recommend this lovely campsite!
