General

  • Small family site near the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
  • Within a 25 minute-drive of the award-winning Mwnt beach
  • Half an hour by car from Oakwood theme park

Castles, coast walks and cathedral cities... you can see the lot from this top spot. Blaencwm Cottages is a quiet family site on a four-acre smallholding a short drive away from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the pubs, shops, tearooms, theatre, cinema and leisure centre of Cardigan town.

Winner of awards, heaped with accolades by travel writers and simply loved by legions of visitors every year, the sheltered bay, soft sands and clear waters of Mwnt beach are a 25-minute drive away: bring binoculars and you might spot some of the dolphins, seals and porpoises who adopted it as their top spot a long time ago. If you want to get closer to the marine life, make the 40-minute trip to New Quay for a sea safari. but if you're more into wave-riding than nature watching it's about an hour to the surfers' hotspot on the Pembrokeshire coast, Newgale.

Back at base, Blaencwm is a hugely scenic spot to settle down in for a spell, with views of the Pembrokeshire countryside and the Preseli Hills, a duck pond and peaceful surroundings for wildlife watching, and free-roaming chickens to greet. All accommodation units come with their own showers and toilets.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

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

Outstanding facility 10/09/2018

  • Liked: 

    The whole experience from the arrival. Brief, layout, facilities available and the general knowledge of surrounding areas are explained in detail by Dave. The cake made by Ann is outstanding and the eggs produced by the chickens make the morning breakfast. The Pod as all amenities required and set in its own location on a hard standing close to a duck pond and chicken run.

    A fantastic log pod! Excellent bathroom, comfy bed, excellent cooking facilities. Lovely hosts. Excellent location for exploring the Cardigan area. Also had an electric heater for colder weather. Fantastic to have electricity in the pod. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Pod was also much larger than expected compared to previous pods we have stayed at.

Local attractions

Sand castles on the beach are all well and good but you can also bag a good half-dozen of the real thing round here: forbidding and forever swapping hands until it was finally abandoned in 1400, Cilgerran Castle is a 10-minute drive away, it's a quarter of an hour to the crackingly well-restored Cardigan Castle and 20 minutes to the enigmatic 13th-century ruins up at Newcastle Emlyn.

If you want to take yourself back in time a little further, make for Castell Henllys,15 minutes away, where you can experience Iron Age life in a replica roundhouse village. There's more recent history to explored and experienced at National Trust Llanerchaeron, 50 minutes away, where the elegant 18th-century villa and walled gardens are accompanied by a traditional working farm.

For thrill rides, high ropes and high-octane activities, topped off with pettable furry animals and exotic beasts, the family-friendly trio of Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo and Heatherton World of Activities are half an hour, 40 minutes and an hour away.

Quieter times can be had wandering the coastline, joining up with the Pembrokeshire Coast Path just north of Poppit Sands, 20 minutes away, or strolling the streets and cathedral of ancient St. Davids, officially the UK's smallest city (an hour).
