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

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

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

    The very friendly owners and a beautiful site. Lovely touches to make your stay enjoyable. Very clean and the views are fantastic.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were lovely and hot but in the ladies it was difficult to shut the shower door and it needed a shelf. In the shared facility the shower cubicle was even harder to get in and was very flimsy, also needed a shelf or stool.
    But I have still given 5 stars overall because we loved the site and these are just observations.

We are a rural campsite, surrounded by nature, there is lots of room, you chose where you pitched. The toilet block might be basic but it has everything you needed.

    Always seen people on facebook doing wild camping and part of me quite fancied doing it , but I worry it might be roughing it a bit too much . Now then Fron Farm is the wild remote country part ( fantastic location , wildlife , lakes for fishing ) but with the luxury of electric hook up , showers etc .

Local attractions

When you're ready to explore all that Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay have to offer, the site is just six miles from Tregaron and the beach at Llanrhystud, and only 12 miles from Aberystwyth.

Visit the historic market town of Tregaron, home of the Welsh Gold Centre and its still busy market. The area is a popular destination for walkers with natural beauty all around and the Cors Caron Nature Reserve has over 170 species of birds for birdspotting opportunities: see if you can spot the famous red kite in flight.

You can also take in the sites of Aberystwyth a short drive away with its thirteenth century castle ruins, busy harbour and seafront.

Aberystwyth, Lampeter and Aberaeron are only half an hour away. Aberystwyth is a seaside and university town with an abundance of local stores, as well as the cliff railway. 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.

There are local golf courses, cycle routes and horse riding all within half an hour's drive.
