Cwmcarn Forest offers something for all the family. The visitor centre provides a place to stock up on refreshments and gifts as well as finding out about what you can do in the area. Why not treat the family to a unique fun day out along the seven miles of Cwmcarn Forest Drive. Explore by car, bike or foot the delights of this hidden wooded valley that culminates in a stunning sequence of views.
Sample our wide range of meals and snacks available at Ravens Cafe - with seating for 56 within the bright and airy interior or choose to eat outside on the impressive Decking area, which overlooks the Nantcarn Stream.
Nestling alongside the banks of the Nantcarn stream is the Visit Wales Four Star graded Cwmcarn Forest Campsite. A well-equipped caravan and camping park at the foot of the spectacular forest drive.
For 2012 we have increased the number of camping ‘Pods’, which could be described as a "wooden tent", on site. There are now three Standard pods (2 adults & 1 child) and seven Family pods available which provide spacious accommodation for up to four people. All have their own picnic table and BBQ facilities.
Accommodation is available for up to 16 caravans (6 hard standings) or tents with an additional 7 all weather tent pitches (installed 2010) all with electric hook up. Modern shower and toilet facilities (upgraded 2010), kitchen (upgraded 2011), laundry room, DDA compliant wet room (new 2011) & chemical waste disposal.
