Looking over the main camping field

General

  • Family- and dog-friendly site 20 minutes’ drive from Cardigan Bay
  • A 15-minute drive from the Ceredigion Coast Path at New Quay
  • Folly Farm and Oakwood Theme Park both within an hour's drive

Coastal walks with your best (canine) pal, dolphin-spotting boat tours and lengthy beach days… might you fancy saying a big yes please to all that? At Gellie Liahona Campsite, a small family-run and family-friendly place just under a mile from the village of Plwmp in Ceredigion, West Wales, it’s all within easy reach.

Gellie Liahona is a top spot for anyone who wants to explore the Welsh coastline, with the Ceredigion Coast Path and its stunning views over Cardigan Bay passing less than 15 minutes’ drive from the site. If you’re not the walking type, you can see the coastline from a different angle with a boat trip around the bay (keep an eye out for dolphins), or stay active on site with a game of volleyball or a kickabout on the football pitch.

Barbecues and campfires are allowed at Gellie Liahona, so fire one up (stacked high with goodies from the shop less than five minutes away), or enjoy the spoils around the other; washing-up facilities are on site whichever you pick.

Prefer to take a break from cooking (and cleaning)? Plenty of restaurants to try are within 15 minutes of Gellie Liahona.

    We loved everything! The hospitality was great! So welcoming!
    We stayed just after the school holidays so were the only ones in our field. Peaceful location but a stones throw from local conviences. The facilities were all clean and such good value for the price we paid! Clean, tidy, great washing and recycling facilities.
    Sharon was extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We hired a fire and kindling easily.
    Overall, a great stay!

    Fabulously friendly site owners, well maintained grounds, cheapest rate we've come across, too! Good washing up facilities. Would recommend.

    Disliked: 

    We were warned that the hot water was acting up. My partner got two hot showers and I got two lukewarm ones! If the shower/loo block had a door on it it would be warmer. However the benefits of this site and the steal of a price still make it well worth a visit 👍

    Great price, very helpful staff and family run feel, good facilities. We travelled around wales staying at many campsites and this was by far the best value. Having a proper toilet and shower block at this price point is great!
    You’re made to feel welcome as soon as you check in and it’s run by a family. The children even run the tuck shop!

Local attractions

If beach days are what your dream hols are made of, then you’re going to have no problem getting to sleep at Gellie Liahona – you can swim on over to the spectacular sandy beaches of Cymtydu, Llangrannog and New Quay, all within 15 minutes’ drive of the site.

Your seaside excursions don’t have to stop at the water’s edge either… head to Aberaeron, 15 minutes away, to cast off on a dolphin-watching boat tour, or stick around a little longer in New Quay for windsurfing, paddleboarding, waterskiing and sailing with Cardigan Bay Watersports.

But what to do if the kids (or you) aren’t fans of the water? Never fear – the West Wales Museum of Childhood and the National Wool Museum are 20 minutes away, the Teifi Valley and Vale of Rheidol railways are both within 40 minutes’ drive, and Folly Farm Adventure Park and Oakwood Theme Park are both around an hour from the site.

Credit card still burning a hole in your pocket? High street shopping is a 25-minute drive away in Cardigan – come for the shopping, stay for the museums, galleries and the Welsh Wildlife Centre.
