Fferm Gelli Camping: Camping field

General

  • Small dog-friendly and family-run farm site in the South Wales Valleys
  • A 15-minute drive from Sirhowy Valley Walk; 25 minutes to the Big Pit
  • Takeaway café with local Welsh produce for barbecues and a play field

In the South Wales Valleys, things like castles, country parks, coal mines (and of course, valleys) are never too far off. Among those splendid sloping landscapes is Fferm Gelli Camping, a family-run and Welsh themed site with a takeaway café that sells locally-sourced Welsh meats ready for your barbecues…

This small site is part of a Welsh farm with horses, chickens, goats and a sheep. The owners live on site and they’re a fan of dogs, which is why your four-legged friend is also welcome to come and stay. With a seating area, user-friendly wet room and a children’s play field, families and dog owners should feel right at home.

Equipment hire is also available at the site for things like tents, firepits and airbeds. Outside of the site, though, things are just as splendid… a few minutes' walk will get you to the local Pen-Y-Fan Pond, a green space which hosts activities such as trout fishing, canoeing and stand-up paddleboarding.

Blackwood town centre is just 10 minutes’ drive away for supermarkets, a cinema, leisure centre, takeaways and a golf course. If you'd also like to try horse riding, there’s a horse riding centre 10 minutes’ drive away.

Of course, this location is within reach of many more cool locations, including multiple castles within 25 to 45 minutes’ drive of the site. There are mountain biking trails in the Welsh hillsides, such as Tirpentwys Mountain Bike Trails 15 minutes’ drive away. Cardiff, the Welsh capital, is 45 minutes’ drive to the south and the Brecon Beacons National Park is 10 miles to the north for all things outdoorsy.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

Guests must bring their own duvets, pillows, sheets and towels when staying in rental accommodation. You will not be allowed to stay if you do not bring these items.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

A cable measuring at least 10 metres is needed for the electric hook-ups.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    Campsite is extremely small
    No regulation of noise- there were people drinking with loud music until gone 1:00am with bottles left by the shared fire pit.
    Power to the shower was shut off when we went to use in the early evening (7:00pm)

From the manager...

Thank you for this feedback.

We are so sorry you was kept awake by fellow campers- This really isn't on. We do have noise rules which every camper is given via email and on this occasion it seems the rules was ignored.

I'm not sure what happened with your shower as the power is kept on 24/7. Apologies for this, we will keep an eye on it in future.

    Lovely location and countryside and a really well thought out site. The pod was lovely and comfy too with a kettle and our own picnic bench, fire pit etc. Also one of the nicest toilets/showers I’ve seen at a campsite! We had breakfast from the cafe in the morning which was lush.

Directions

Local attractions

What of those Welsh fortresses that will remind you of the old times? Caerphilly Castle (25 minutes’ drive) is a medieval castle, Castell Coch (35 minutes) is from the 19th century and Cardiff Castle (45 minutes) has over 2000 years of history for you to uncover.

With the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park around 20 minutes’ drive to the north, mountain hikes are always an option. Otherwise, the Sirhowy Valley Walk (around 15 minutes) is certainly spectacular. The long-distance hike has miles of walking over farms, woodlands and mountain ridges in the Valleys landscapes, beginning or ending in Newport.

You may want to learn a little about the history of Welsh mining while you’re around these parts. If so, the Big Pit National Coal Museum (25 minutes) runs tours around a Welsh coal mine. Perhaps a visit to a cider farm too? Hallets Cider (15 minutes) runs cider tasting tours and food pairing sessions.

Must see

  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (5.6 miles)
  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (6.0 miles)
  • Blaenavon Ironworks (6.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Skenfrith Castle (20.0 miles)
