Ffynnonwen: Nice and cosy winter glamping by the fire

General

  • Family-friendly stays in a wildflower meadow on a laidback site
  • A 10-minute drive from Llangrannog beach and the Wales Coast Path
  • Car- and radio-free policy for peace and quiet; chickens, hens on site

Is there a site in west Wales more ace than family-friendly Ffynnonwen? Book a stay at this smallholding in a peaceful part of Ceredigion and the coastal path wanders, salty swims and hammock snoozes among a wildflower meadow are sure to help you make up your mind…

A peaceful place, Ffynnonwen has hens and sheep as neighbours in a car-free area (eggs are available to buy on site and wheelbarrows are on hand to cart your stuff about), with a no-electronic music and radio policy to help keep the atmosphere serene.

The park is also less than 10 minutes’ drive from sandy Llangrannog beach and its foodie options from fish and chips to classic pub meals. If you’ll be cooking some meals on the barbecue back on base, stock up on supplies at the supermarket over in Brynhoffnant, less than a 10-minute drive away.

You can also easily set off from the grounds for ambles along the coastal path (about three miles away) where seals and dolphins can be spotted in the water… or stay closer to home to wander through the woods that are about 20 minutes away on foot (and maybe take a splash in a stream while you're there).

And if the beaches ever get boring? The area’s brimming with boat trips, watersports, theme parks, castles and botanical gardens too.

Quiet, peaceful site with fully equipped and comfortable Yurt07/11/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Yurt
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Lindsey and Lloyd were very welcoming and remained attentive to our needs throughout the stay. The Yurt was tucked away from the remaining pitch areas with its own outdoor table, seats, compost toilet, water bowser and fire pit. The inside of the Yurt was spacious and had everything that you may need. The stove keeps the Yurt really warm and comfortable, especially in the month of October!! Lindsey and Lloyd have equipped the Yurt well with quality items, for example, pans and cooking items, torches, outdoor folding chairs, hammock etc. We were also provided a lovely surprise on arrival - some eggs, bara brith and wine!! We had access to the site's additional wash facilities which included another composting toilet, wash room, shower and outdoor washing-up sink, as well as fridge and freezer. Recycling is encouraged with clear instructions provided in the Yurt. We were the only guests staying on the site in late October so cannot comment on what it would be like with more guests needing access to facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing disliked but a minor suggestion to make things even better - to cater for rainy conditions, perhaps overhead cover for the washing-up sink and for the outdoor seating at the Yurt.

    A lovely family run campsite in a great tranquil location - just 10 mins drive to Llangrannog offering sandy beaches, outstanding cliff walks and the best Fish & Chips! Campsite facilities were very clean and practical, and we especially liked the Eco set-up to include compost toilets. Tent pitches were a generous size and level and we liked how wild grass areas are used to divide pitches. The option to use a fire pit and purchase logs onsite was a nice touch too.

  • Bell tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Peaceful and spacious setting, really well equipped, helpful hosts and great location. I was so impressed with the site and bell tent at Ffynnonwen. The hosts Lindsey and Lloyd were really welcoming, suggesting places to eat and beaches to check out. The site is very pretty and quiet, with the bell tent set in a pasture of its own but still close to facilities. Lots of lovely touches like fresh flowers in the tent. Plenty of lights, cooking equipment and enough freezer blocks in the freezer (near the car parking) to switch ones over in the cool box. The best thing is the location - a short drive to the most wonderful beaches. The closest, Llangrannog, is stunning with calm water suitable for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding and some good places to eat.

    The site was perfect. Only a few pitches, no electronic music, nice owners, hot showers and lovely path in trees around site. The re-wilding is working well with so many different bugs, which is a relief to see! Really chilled out stay, and only 10 minutes drive from Llangranog beach and Penbryn beach was worth a visit. The composting toilets were easy to use, but remember to put the lid down. Yummy eggs, jam and cordial for sale. Freezer for ice blocks. Will definitely come back again.
