About Caban Bach Eco Pod

The Eco Pod at the Ceridwen Centre lets couples enjoy all the pleasures of camping, like cooking outdoors, stargazing and feeling close to nature, without any of the downsides like leaking tents or the cold ground. The wooden pod was built by hand from recycled materials and features a double bed that cleverly converts into a table and bench seats to make the most of the space. The Ceridwen Centre has a licensed restaurant, eco hot tub for hire, fabulous wooden children's play structure and a small shop selling crafts, local food, homemade preserves and alcohol. The centre is only a mile from Drefach-Felindre with two pubs for a local pint, a busy village shop, chip shop, pottery and play park.

The Ceridwen Centre is a fantastic venue that can accommodate everyone from couples to groups of over 60 people. Not only is there this amazing Eco Pod, which is in a peaceful spot in the wildflower meadow, but it also has five yurts, a large house sleeping up to 19 people and even a converted double-decker bus (see separate advert)! Why choose to stay in a soulless, impersonal hotel when you can glamp in style in the beautiful Teifi Valley!

There is so much to see and do in the Teifi Valley that your biggest problem will be fitting everything in. The pod is on 40 private acres of organic farmland, with stunning views and footpaths leading from the door. The owners have a mountain bike pump track and regular Saturday morning kids' bike club, as well as running West Wales bike skills events and guided trails (advanced booking is strongly advised). You can also get your thrills paddle-boarding, kayaking (Llandysul Paddlers is an excellent local adventure centre just three miles away) or white water rafting on the River Teifi; or fish for salmon, trout and sewin with the assistance of a local fishing guide. Alternatively, lace up your walking boots and enjoy local walks to places like the castle ruins in Newcastle Emlyn, Coed Foel woods at Llandysul and the little falls at Henllan.

The Teifi Valley reminds you that Wales is a Celtic country, with a history that has been influenced by myths and legends. For example, place names that include the word “moch”, relate to stories of the theft of a herd of mystical pigs, while the ancient woods at Glyn Cuch are said to be an entry to the Welsh otherworld named Annwfn. Whether you believe the stories or not, it is impossible to deny that the landscape has a type of magic.

One of the many benefits of a holiday at the Ceridwen Centre is its proximity to not one, but two coastlines. The nearest beach (Llangrannog) is to the north, but Tresaith and Aberporth are also within easy reach. The stunning Welsh coastline, including the Wales Coastal Path, is there for you to enjoy.

Newcastle Emlyn is the closest market town to the Ceridwen Centre, with excellent independent shops and places to eat and drink. Nearby attractions include the National Wool Museum, the falls at Cenarth, Cilgerran Wildlife Park and many local craft studios. Slightly further afield, you may want to add the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Aberglasney House and Gardens to your itinerary. You can even go whale and dolphin watching in Cardigan Bay, or visit the birthplace of King Henry VII at Pembroke Castle.

The Eco Pod at Ceridwen Centre is a fantastic choice for couples travelling on their own or on holiday with a larger group of family and friends. The Teifi Valley is a lovely year-round destination for people of all ages and interests.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Eco Pod was made on site using recycled materials to minimise its carbon footprint and fit in with the Ceridwen Centre's environmentally friendly principles. It is very well insulated with Welsh sheep wool and has electricity with a little electric heater to offer a comfortable stay at any time of year.

  • Forget rolling out a thin sleeping mat on the hard ground, because the Eco Pod has a bespoke large double bed that cleverly converts into a table and bench seating during the day. Sheets, Welsh wool blankets and bath towels are all included.
  • Self-catering is easier than you would expect, thanks to a small caravan hob and oven (bottled gas). There is also a small sink with a cold water tap, so you do not have to venture outside to make a cup of tea, and a small fridge keeps things like milk and bacon fresh. The owners provide ample cutlery and crockery, pots and pans, so you do not need to pack anything like the amount you would if you were camping - this is all but a proper 'self-catering' experience!
  • Outside, there is a barbecue area with a table and chairs so you can grill your fish if you have been successful on the River Teifi, or sizzle your sausages if not.
  • The pod has its own little private compost toilet adjacent and also has its own designated conventional toilet and gas shower in a nearby block.
  • More shared bathroom facilities are 150 metres away in The Old Dairy, where there are two shower rooms.
  • Parking next to the pod.

Additional Information: No smoking is allowed inside the Eco Pod. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability, and the Eco Pod can be booked together with some of the other accommodation at the Ceridwen Centre to accommodate groups of up to 60 people. One dog is welcome by prior arrangement with the owner. The Ceridwen Centre does not offer 'grand' but it works very hard to offer a very special holiday experience with environmental principles at its heart. You can buy local produce from the farm shop which is handy for forgotten provisions and pre-book a homegrown veg box in summer. There are also food nights (please refer to the owners website for more information), and it is also possible to book a local beauty therapist for some pampering to make your 'glamping' experience extra special - the owners are only too happy to help make your holiday as memorable as possible. The eco hot tub can be booked for exclusive use on a first come, first served basis at an additional cost of £65 per day (to cover wood and labour) via the owners. There is no WiFi in the pod but guests can use internet access in the farmyard if needed.
