- Family-run farm in a wildlife haven
- Half a mile from Devil's Bridge Falls
- Peaceful garden and a site shop
What a busy time can be had in the gorge little corner of Ceredigion which houses Erwbarfe Farm Caravan Park – it’s bursting with attractions in all directions, including the famed waterfalls of Devil’s Bridge Falls half a mile away, the stupendous coastline of Cardigan Bay within 12 miles, and the upland wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains and their top peak Plynlimon.
Then there’s the fishing, horse riding, red kite spotting, mountain biking and mining history to plunge into too – it’s not surprising that guests have been returning to this family-run farm for over 40 years…
As might be expected among all this Welsh wonder, the views and facilities of Erwbarfe Farm will make hearts leap too… pitch up here for scenic sights in all directions, loads of room ready for play, and a peaceful park garden for picnics and nodding dreamily over a novel.
Amenities are well-kept and include two toilet blocks (one with loos and the other with loos and showers), a launderette and water taps flowing fresh Welsh mountain water sourced above the farm.
Source groceries, ice cream, Calor gas and other essentials in the site shop; other bits and bobs for sale as well as a bistro with takeaway are within a mile, and there are plenty of local pubs serving food (the park noticeboard has info on and menus of local eateries). A rich selection of restaurants is at Aberystwyth 20 minutes’ drive away – or land your own catch with a sea fishing trip along the coast.
With the walks all around, Erwbarfe Farm Caravan Park does accept dogs, but please keep them on leads while on site.

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.

From the Midlands, leave the A44 after passing Dyffryn Castell Hotel taking the B4343 and A4120 towards Devil's Bridge. Erwbarfe Farm Caravan Park is on the right-hand side, half way between Ponterwyd and Devil's Bridge on the A4120.
Fisherfolk from all over the country use Erwbarfe Farm as a base for some of the best casting off in Ceredigion and west Wales: the nearby Rheidol and Ystwyth rivers yield salmon and trout, while rainbow and brown trout can be landed in the local lakes.
If you’ve never dabbled in the art, ask the farm staff for a meet with their almost-resident fishing instructor David, who can give fly fishing lessons and advice on site, and/or pick up a free copy of the site’s Angling in the Heart of Pumlumon booklet in reception.
The reception information point on site has brochures and leaflets on all the other things to see and do locally: you'd have to read rapid-ly to get through them all, but should certainly include the fab falls of Devil’s Bridge, where visitors including Will Wordsworth have flowed to for many a year.
The 45-minute nature trail walk here passes the waterfalls through a wooded gorge in a Site of Special Scientific Interest and ends at a free telescope viewer to peer at the Gyfarllwyd Falls on the River Rheidol. (There’s a shorter 10-minute trail too, down to the river flowing upstream from the waterfalls).
Lucky devils might see a red kite or two from the nature trail’s telescope, but if not, guarantee a sighting at the Bwlch Nant yr Arian visitor centre in the Cambrian mountains and the spectacular sight of up to 150 kites flocking to daily feeding time all year round.
Bikes as well as birds are the highlight at this award-winning forest centre, with three trails for mountain biking making for a wonderful Welsh brake (bike hire is available if you haven’t brought your own).
Hill hiking is here too: the four walking trails at Bwlch Nant yr Arian include a Miners’ Trail along the leat that used to carry water to the valley lead mines below. But if you’d like to dig into Welsh mining history in style, travel two miles from Erwbarfe Farm to the Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine Museum for a guided tour. There be a dragon’s tail/tale also (Smaug?).
Numerous beaches including New Quay, Borth and Ynys Las (plus dunes) are within easy driving distance of Erwbarfe Farm, as is stunning Cardigan Bay 12 miles away and its award-winning beaches, walks on the Ceredigion Coast Path, smuggling the family into caves, and – with luck – spying the UK’s biggest pod of dolphins.
