Description

Enjoy a family-run, eco-friendly, award-winning campsite which has spectacular views of the Welsh countryside. Located on the edge of woodland on a 20 acre smallholding in Carmarthenshire, West Wales, just a 20 minute drive from the Cardigan Bay coastline.

The Mongolian Ger and Bentwood Yurt both sleep up to 4 people and each have their own 'space', separated by mature shrubs and trees and connected by hand-made stepping stones. Both are furnished with comfortable beds, colourful throws, plenty of blankets, a log burning stove and a 2 ring gas stove. All cooking equipment, crockery, plus a cool box with ice packs (replenished daily) is provided as well as a good supply of firewood.  

Outside you can relax by a glowing campfire by night, looking at an endless sky of stars and waking to the sound of birdsong. The woodland is dotted with some amazing carvings, a magical faery village for the little ones, hammocks and a labyrinth. 

For use by all guests is a log cabin with full-size Calor gas cooker with an oven, a wood-burning stove, low energy power for mobile phone charging, a sink, a central table and it has also been made cosy with lots of cushions to sit and chat to fellow guests. There are 2 hot showers, a tiled compost loo and a standard flush loo too. Children can enjoy the play area on the edge of the woodland and den-building is encouraged! 

If you are looking for a child-friendly, relaxed and sustainable alternative holiday, look no further. The entire campsite is run by alternative energy - wind and solar and water power. All cleaning products are environmentally friendly, and they supply eco-friendly shampoo, conditioner, soap and clothes washing products. There are also recycling facilities on site.

This is a quiet location, well away from busy roads and not far from both the Carmarthen Bay and the Cardigan Bay coastlines. Llangrannog Beach is a favourite and you can enjoy dolphin spotting in Newquay. Alternatively try your hand at horse riding on Llanllwni Mountain or visit the Iron Age Fort at Foel Drygarn, just over a 35 minute drive away.
