Ffynnonwen Farm Wild Camping: Angel with Sooty in the lower paddock. Guest are welcome to feed the sheep

General

  • Eight-acre smallholding in peaceful countryside
  • A 20-minute drive from Aberaeron and 30 from Aberystwyth
  • Spectacular views towards the Cambrian mountains

Find your way to Ffynnonwen Farm Wild Camping for peaceful stays in Welsh countryside – a mere glimpse at the pics showing the spectacular setting of this quiet eight-acre smallholding with stunning views towards the Cambrian mountains may well encourage you to get moving right away…

As well as an outstanding outlook, this park in a lush valley has paddock areas for pitching and picnics along with plenty of space to laze about or roam; dog-friendly nature trails and walks are in and around this farm full of wildflower meadows, beech trees and a natural spring to wander around.

If lots of ambling is planned, aim for Llyn Eiddwen lake and Site of Special Scientific Interest, a pretty place for a stroll beside the rare local water and plant life and around half an hour on foot from Ffynonnwen. Local village Bontnewydd is also accessible on a walk as it’s about 25 minutes away (or five minutes’ drive if you’re feeling a little lazy).

Mosey on back to the park and make the most of the views by stoking up the barbecue – if it’s chilly, campfires are allowed on site as well. A supermarket in Lampeter is within half an hour’s drive, or stop by at Blaencamel Organic Farm (20 minutes’ drive) on your way to a local beach like Aberaeron with its pretty fishing village (around the same distance).

Charging facilities and chemical disposal are available at Ffynonnwen Farm Wild Camping.

    Lovely little farm just, in a beautiful remote area. Plenty of peace and quiet, with beautiful surrounding views. We shared our night in the field with sheep and pigmy goats for company. Had the best nights sleep 😴 as is was so quiet. Shower and toilet in the farmhouse. Lovely friendly owners.

Directions


To find the site, use the postcode rather than relying on the farm name alone. From the B4577, turn right onto the B4576. Take a slight right and stay on that road; do NOT turn right. Keep going slight left then a slight right and the farmhouse will be on your right in front of you. On the hill you will see the drive on your right and the black dog sign.

Local attractions

Ffynonnwen Farm is within easy reach of the Llŷn Peninsula and Ceredigion seaside as well as the watersports at Aberystwyth half an hour’s drive away. In fact, a whole of host of beaches can be visited in this part of Wales, including busier New Quay and the slightly quieter Tan Y Bwlch, both about half an hour’s drive away.

Borth beach takes 50 minutes to reach, and it's 40 minutes to Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre – where you might spot some of the dolphins who regularly make an appearance on these shores…

For a cultural detour inland, head to the National Trust’s 18th-century estate of Llanerchaeron with its walled garden and ornamental lake (25-minute drive) then make your way towards the riverside woodlands encircling the manor house (or shop for local farm produce at the on-site store).

Go north towards the dunes of Ynyslas (55 minutes up the coast) for a change of scenery and swing by the colourful cottages and pleasure pier of Aberystwyth as a scenic stopoff point along the way.

Must see

  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (8.7 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (9.6 miles)
