General

  • Small family-run fishery and site in scenic west Wales countryside
  • A five-minute drive to Bronant village and 15 to Tregaron market town
  • Two coarse fishing lakes and two fly fishing lakes

The owners of family-run Fron Farm Fishery reckon you need to be lucky to catch the crafty 40-pound carp that lives in one of its four large lakes… So if you think you have what it takes to reel him in, book a stay at this site in spectacular west Wales countryside a 20-minute drive from the Ceredigion coast.

As you might have guessed from the name, this park is ace for anglers: its bodies of water range from an acre in size up to two and a half, and include a couple of naturally spring-fed lakes replenished regularly with rainbow, blue and native brown trout. Also on the grounds are two other coarse lakes filled with smaller fish as well as carp (including that elusive 40-pounder…).

This peaceful and family-friendly park’s a first-rate spot for getting up close with other animals as well – it’s in a wildlife haven surrounded by hedgerows, with red kites often flying overhead and dragonflies skimming over the ponds. There’s ample room all around for impromptu games of cricket, and lots of trails in the lush local countryside mean even more green space to explore whether on walks or cycle rides.

Also at the park is a small shower block (heated to guard against chilly toes), and washing-up facilities are on hand too. The local shop and pub are in the village of Bronant, about a five-minute drive away. Please note that the ground here is a little uneven and slopes gently in places, so you may not have a completely flat pitch.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    Everything! Very peaceful, clean toilet facilities and portable firepit 🙌 beautiful scenery and lovely walk around lakes. We had 4G the entire time, so not completely internet less, but we'd have still loved it with no internet at all 😁 welcoming gentleman at reception. Can't wait to go again!!

    Absolutely nothing!

    Travelling as 3 motorcycle buddies, this was a very quiet and peaceful site. That said, we chose a spot way off in the top field which was pretty much empty anyway. Facilities are minimal but we didn't forget that this is a very cheap place to stay and also a fishery site. No complaints at all.

    Peaceful.
    Outlook of the fishing pond.
    Hand sanitisers readily available.

    Disliked: 

    Shower and toilet units. Very worn, based in an old porter cabin. Shower cubicles tiny. No where to place shampoos etc. Lack of hooks to hand clothing and towel. Very slow drainage and cracked shower tray in unisex shower.
    No phone signal (on EE), no WiFi. No connection with outside world though this may please some folk. This meant for me that I didn't dare go on a hike around the countryside incase I got lost or injured and unable to contact anyone for help, therefore nothing for me to do while husband fished.

Lovely peaceful site07/09/2020

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lovely quiet and peaceful site which is fairly remote but that adds to the charm. As a motorhome owner there is everything there that you would expect and whilst basic it is very clean with loads of hot water. There is a decent pub around 5 miles away and a number of places to eat. Lovely views over the fishing lakes and you can hear the fish jumping at night. There is no light pilution so you get fabulous views of the mikly way on a clear night. The owners are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble.

    Disliked: 

    Road leading up to the site is a little overgrown so we scratched the motorhome quite badly on branches.

From the manager...

We appreciate your lovely comments regarding the camping.
We do not have control over the road, it is normally cut twice a year, due to covid the spring cut didn't happen, hopefully autumn cut will go ahead

Local attractions

Mosey to the market at Tregaron (15 minutes' drive from the site), location of the 2020 Eisteddfod and a fine place to browse farm-fresh food or indulge your inner magpie at the Welsh Gold Centre; other settlements to spy hereabouts include Aberystwyth (half an hour) for its 13th-century castle ruins, busy harbour and townhouse-lined seafront, as well as a renowned art centre and the National Library of Wales.

This top town’s also the launching point for the Vale of Rheidol Railway, which whisks visitors over to Devils Bridge inland for the spectacular waterfalls. If you’d rather stay close to the seaside, try the beach at Llanrhystud (20 minutes) or roam further south-east towards Aberaeron (25 minutes) to follow sandy times at its shoreline with browsing the local craft shops.

Didn’t spot any red kites back at the park? Twitching is to be had at Cors Caron National Nature Reserve (20 minutes), where you can look out for the famed creatures while also attempting to sight some of the other 170 winged species that call this area home.

Must see

  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (9.7 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (9.9 miles)
