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, a supermarket for stocking up at is 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.

    Clean facilities
    Beautiful surroundings
    Convenient location for beaches
    Good size pitch
    Peace and tranquility

    The hosts were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The pitches are nicely secluded from neighbouring pitches and you can enjoy some beautiful walks without leaving the campsite. The nearby beaches are idyllic and there is plenty available within a short drive. It was my 3 year old sons first camping trip and he hasn’t stopped asking to go back since we left. I will definitely be staying again.

    Thank you so much.
