Hardstanding with grass

General

  • Small family- and dog-friendly site with views over the Teifi valley
  • A five-minute drive from Newcastle Emlyn and 15 to Cenarth Falls
  • Poppit Sands, Llangrannog and Aberporth beaches reachable in 30 mins

Turn up in the Teifi valley for a Welsh welcome at Fron Rafel, a small family-run site spread over seven acres whose friendly vibes and helpful staff are as tiptop as the views of the countryside from the grounds.

As well as being in a lush rural area in west Wales, this dog-friendly place is less than 10 minutes’ drive to the popular settlement of Newcastle Emlyn and 35 minutes from the family-friendly beach of Poppit Sands (lifeguarded in summer), so you can switch between coastal and town times with ease.

Countryside explores are also prime around this park, with Cenarth Falls and its leaping salmon 15 minutes’ drive for waterfall hiking and sightseeing; for mountain biking and more walks, Brechfa Forest is within half an hour. Up for getting out on the water? A local adventure company can arrange canoe trips and other outdoor activities in the site's Carmarthenshire surroundings.

If you fancy browsing the shops in Cardigan and Carmarthen instead, both are about half an hour from the park. Restaurants are dotted around these market towns as well as closer by and a well-stocked supermarket is within a couple of miles for picking up ready meals to warm up in the microwave back on base.

Other amenities at the site include a newly restored piggery building with ladies’ and gents’ shower rooms and a family wetroom plus washing-up facilities and a toaster at one end of the block. The park also has your essentials sorted with a chemical disposal and two washing machines, free for guests to use.

Top rated site, with great facilities.05/08/2019

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    Definitely the best site I have stayed at, was met on arrival by the owner, who gave us a all the info we needed about the facilities, the hard standing pitch was very large and level, water and electric on all hard standings & large grass area next to your pitch. The toilet and shower block is built to a modern and high standard, it was a pleasure to use the shower and toilet, they were the cleanest I've seen of all the sites I've been to. Also on site you have use of a free washing machine and a wet room. Nothing was to much trouble for the owners, they provided the warmest of welcomes. The site is new, very well maintained and very clean.
    It's a great location for exploring west wales, what a gem of a site, can't wait to return again soon. Great to see a site with high standards that ticks all the boxes.
    Well done. 5*

Lovely well-maintained site in a great location, friendly staff :)03/08/2019

  • 2 bedroom static caravan
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved how well equipped the van was, with all the bits and bobs we could possibly need. The location is perfect - at the top of the site with good views, there are bushes to provide just enough privacy to ensure you are not overlooked, yet the site is open enough to have a nice friendly atmosphere. Very children friendly!
    Steve made sure that we were settled in, giving us a thorough run down of where everything was in the van. And a later follow up courtesy call to ensure we had no problems (which we didn't). The decking area is great for catching the evening sun (it stays in the sun all day long).
    Location wise, the site is within easy reach of fantastic beaches, good shops and plenty of things to do if the weather is not brilliant. Looking forward to returning!
