General

  • Small family-run fishery and site in the Welsh countryside
  • Two coarse lakes with rainbow, blue and brown trout
  • Two coarse lakes with carp up to 40lb

Fron Farm Fishery is a small family-run fishery and campsite between Bontnewydd and Bronant in the spectacular Welsh countryside, in a peaceful place for relaxing family stays.

The site is in a wildlife haven surrounded by hedgerows and nature including red kites overhead and dragonflies skimming over the lakes. Excellent fishing is available on site, but the area is also popular for walking, cycling or exploring the countryside by car.

This is a small campsite, with a small shower block and washing-up facilities, but with lots of room to play and relax. The local shop and pub are in Bronant which is a mile and a half away.

There are four large lakes on site, ranging from one to two and a half acres in size. They include two naturally spring fed trout lakes are abundant with fish and are replenished regularly with rainbow, blue and native brown trout. In the two coarse lakes are a variety of smaller coarse fish and carp up to 40lb: although the carp in the 20lb range are caught regularly, the 40lb carp is older and wiser so does not get caught easily... come and try your luck.

Please note

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

Facilities/activities including fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    The camp site is set in a beautiful part of the country. The owners are really friendly and helpful. There are 3 lakes and the fishing looked good but didn't get a chance to put the rods out. Would definitely book again.

    Disliked: 

    Probably better for older children as there is no play area.
    Facilities are basic but all you need for a camping trip.

It's also the start of the Rheidol Railway to Devils Bridge and has a well-known art centre and the National Library of Wales.

Aberaeron is an old village with harbour and beach, and local craft shops. Lampeter is also a small town, with a university and a good range of shops. If you want to explore further afield, try New Quay, Cardigan and Carmarthen.
