Getting here by car:
Denmark Farm is situated 4 miles from Lampeter in Ceredigion, mid Wales. (Grid Reference SN586537). If you are travelling from Lampeter on the A485, look out for our brown tourist sign and take the turning left (after a stone bridge). Continue for 2 miles and Denmark Farm is located on the left hand side (look out for reversing mirror on right hand side, opposite the end of our track).
Alternatively if coming from the North on the A485, in the hamlet of Betws Bledrws, take a right turn opposite the chapel and the telephone box. Drive up the hill and along the level road until you reach a T-junction. Take a right at this junction and Denmark Farm is located 30 metres on the left hand side.
Look out for the reversing mirror opposite our track and the wooden ‘Denmark Farm Conservation Centre’ sign which is just at the entrance of our track. Please be warned that Sat Nav often takes drivers a mile or two past our site so do take note of these directions.

Getting here by public transport:
For information on public transport visit www.traveline-cymru.info
The nearest train stations are Carmarthen (25 miles south) and Aberystwyth (25 miles north west), with connecting buses to Lampeter.
A very economic way to travel to Lampeter from London is on the Megabus. However this service is not always convenient for connecting buses.
Local Buses (Service 588/688) from Lampeter to Aberystwyth stop in Betws Bledrws, from where it is a 1.2 mile walk uphill to Denmark Farm (follow the white sign opposite the church). The new Bwcabus Service connects with other bus services and can provide transport to the end of the our track. You must register with Bwcabus first and prebook your journey. Buses only run Monday to Saturday and not on Sundays or bank holidays.

Trail leaflets and an information board can be found in the Welcome Shelter in the car park.
The longest trail will take about an hour or more, but there is also a shorter trail for wheelchair users.
Two compost toilets are available at all times, with adisabled toilet available upon request during office hours (otherwise the training centre is only accessible to course participants or during public events).
What to See:
The self-guided trails will take you through a variety of habitats, and allow you to experience an amazing array of wildlife around our 40 acre site.
Why not visit the roundhouse shelter in the woods, or one of our beautiful wooden structures such as the lakeside shelter, or garden pergola? All made using traditional methods and sustainably sourced materials wherever possible and with the help of volunteers.
We also have a range of ideas for encouraging wildlife to your garden, from nest boxes and a barrel pond in the wildlife garden, to butterfly and bee borders filled with fragrance and colour, to our own insect hotel (if bugs could award a prize for buildings, this would be a winner!)
There are also many other wildlife-friendly and sustainable features to discover.
