  • Excellently-kept village site 12 miles from Aberystwyth
  • A few minutes' walk from Devils Bridge Falls
  • In a walking, birdwatching and wildlife haven
Ever been to Devils Bridge Falls? If not, you really should, for they really are devilishly handsome. And a simple few minutes' stroll from the Falls is popular and immaculately-maintained Woodlands Caravan Park: use it as a waterfall pitstop, or as a base for seeing what else is on offer on the Ceredigion coastline and in west Wales (spoiler alert: quite a bit). Woodlands is in the hills in Devils Bridge village, in a walking haven with lots of walks leading directly from the site, and in a well-placed locale for fishing, mountain biking, golfing and birdwatching too (you'll often see a red kite or two soaring overhead). It's a few minutes' walk from the village pub and the Vale of Rheidol steam train, and four miles from the red kite feeding station at Bwlch Nant yr Arian's Forestry Centre. Aberystwyth is 12 miles away and has one of several sandy beaches to visit up and down the Ceredigion coast. The amenities block at Woodlands has very cleanly kept toilets and free showers. Also on site are a shop, tearooms, a laundry room, games room and a play area; a free wifi hotspot is maintained for the use of all guests.

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch (four person)

Liked: Facilities were amazing. WiFi was good. Really good base for what was a stunning area.

Disliked: Be aware that the non electric pitches are all on a slope. It didn’t seem to matter how I pitched I was on a slant. This meant I slept on a slant and kept feeling like I was sliding off my Matt. I come from the countryside so I expect country noises and although I myself found it charming being woken up by 100s of BAA’s at 8am was a rude awakening although very cute to see then following the farmer. Just something to be aware of. The cafe shuts at 4ish so don’t expect dinner. Although it did advertise takeout on a Friday. Such a shame as the food there was yummy.

Local attractions

The Devils Bridge Falls and the Three Bridges nature trail walk are only about a quarter of a mile from Woodlands Caravan Park and are – cleverly – the things most guests go for first. The Vale of Rheidol Steam Train and the Hafod Arms Hotel & Bar are both within the same distance away. Four miles away are four top west Wales attractions for all types: the daily red kite feeding at Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forestry Centre; its mountain bike trail; the guided walks and wooded landscape of the Hafod estate; and the Silver Mountain Experience, a day out among the old mines, streams and forests of the Cambrian mountains. The Elan Valley, 15 miles away, is an essential site for Welsh wildlife and is often called the Welsh Lake District: head here for the Elan Valley Reservoirs and the only purpose-built arts and crafts mini village in Wales. Or if you fancy the beach, the sands of Borth beach and the sand dunes of Ynys Las are within 15 and 17 miles. Another beach is at nearby Aberystwyth, along with its famed Constitution Hill, Camera Obscura and cliff railway, and the Magic of Life Butterfly House, with hundreds of butterflies, heaps of giant caterpillars, odd insects and walks (and more waterfalls) in the Rheidol Valley. If the kids like this, take them along too to Fantasy Farm Park, 19 miles away.
