- Spectacular views of Cardigan Bay
- Basic but adequate facilities and a relaxed vibe
- Bordered by the Ceredigion Coast Path and a mile from Aberaeron
Trai-A-Llanw is at the edge of Aberarth village, a mile away from the town of Aberaeron. The site is bordered by the Ceredigion Coastal Path, with steps down to the shore. You can access the site either through the village or directly off the coast road.
The site offers basic but completely adequate facilities with fresh water supply and a portaloo. All tent sizes are welcome on site, as well as small campervans and caravans.
The campsite is secluded, but in no way isolated as Aberaeron is a 15-minute walk or a five-minute drive away.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

A whole range of excellent attractions and activities available on the doorstep of Trai-A-Llanw:
- Walking: the campsite is directly on the Ceredigion coastal path, making it an ideal stopover for backpackers. As well as the coastal path, there are walks around and beyond the village into deeply wooded valleys and moorland.
- Surfing: given the right conditions Aberarth has excellent surfing beaches. For those of you not wanting to get into the water, it proves to be an entertaining show.
- Boating/kayaking: there are facilities for launching fishing/day boats in Aberaeron Harbour. Trai-A-Lanw is ideal for launching kayaks with the steps providing access to the shore.
- Natural history: red kites are prolific here, the more observant may see chough, peregrine, stonechat, wheatear, flocks of goldfinch, on the shore there are oystercatcher, curlew and many other shoreline species. Seals are often seen quite close in and nearby Newquay is famous for dolphin spotting. Otters are known to live along the River. Although Aberarth beach isn't really a bathing beach, it has wonderful rockpooling, especially around the remains of the ancient Goredi fish traps at low tide
- Fishing: beachcasting can produce dogfish, huss and the occasional ray. Given the right conditions, spinning or plugging produces quality Bass. There is a good tackle shop in Aberaeron.
- Touring nearby: central located for exploring Ceredigion, visiting the 'hinterland' locations, the Cambrian mountains and the beaches of Newquay, Llangranog, Aberporth, Mwnt and Tresaith.
- Eating out: Aberaeron is famous for its restaurants and eateries and you are close enough to walk back.
