Tor Cefn Farm: Summer evening

General

  • Simple pitches at a Carmarthenshire farm, 10 minutes from Kidwelly
  • A 20-minute drive to Cefn Sidan beach; half an hour to Brecon Beacons
  • Award-winning licensed tearoom on site with homemade cakes

A campsite with its own tearoom – now doesn’t that sound like a fine idea? And not just any old tearoom, but an award-winning licensed tearoom in the lovely Carmarthenshire countryside…

This is exactly what guests will find when checking into Tor Cefn Farm, high up in the Gwendraeth area about 10 minutes’ drive from Kidwelly. The tearoom here is open from Thursday to Sunday, serving up breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and homemade cakes along with a good selection of teas, coffees, soft drinks, beers and wines. They open up for evenings on an ad hoc basis on summer weekends as well.

Of course, you’ll want to work up an appetite for all this tasty fare: and that’s easily done in this scenic part of the world. For starters there’s a little woodland walk on site (where you can sometimes spot buzzards and red kites), and you can take a good uphill walk to the top of Mynydd Llangyderyn in about 25 minutes. There are plenty of cycling routes around too, and you can get to the Wales Coast Path with a drive of about 20 minutes or the Brecon Beacons National Park in about half an hour.

Back on site, it’s not all about the tea and cake – there are also chickens, ducks, sheep and goats to meet, and you may have a visit from Freddy the inquisitive cat. Facilities at the camping field are fairly basic (just a composting toilet, drinking water tap, a chemical disposal point and washdown area) but there’s a washroom with proper flushing loo and hot water up at the tearoom (about a 250-metre walk from the pitches).

Please note

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Single-sex bookings of 4 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

At least one of the party members must be aged 22 or over.

Minimum spacing of 4 metres between pitches.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Reception is unmanned after 8 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

If making a fire, the fuel, logs and coal have to be purchased on site.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

    We had a great weekend at this site. It is really well located for visiting different parts of Wales. The owners are very friendly and will just pop round to check everyone is okay. There is a compost toilet on site, a septic tank for toilet waste and a drinking water tap. We visited Tenby area, Rhosilli (which is beautiful), and Burry Port over the three days. There is a tea room at the site which is unfortunately we didn't get to visit but other visitors said it was very good. We would definitely visit again and recommend to others

    Quiet, small site, friendly hosts, delicious cakes on site, animals and sandpit area for kids. Composting toilet and regular toilet kept clean clear instructions everywhere needed.

    Disliked: 

    Be aware to book ahead at the tea room - even for breakfast - as they were fully booked for the whole weekend for private functions when we were there.

    Also, not really anything owners can do about it, but beware of the possessed-sounding donkey in a neighbouring field that is extremely vocal during the night - especially around 3am!
