General

  • Excellently-kept village site 12 miles from Aberystwyth
  • A few minutes' walk from Devils Bridge Falls
  • In a walking, birdwatching and wildlife haven

Ever been to Devils Bridge Falls? The Pitchup.com pen flows forth on these a lot when writing about the top things to see in west Wales: they really are devilishly handsome.

And a simple few minutes' stroll from the Falls is popular and immaculately-maintained Woodlands Caravan Park: use it as a waterfall pitstop, or as a base for seeing what else is on offer on the Ceredigion coastline and in west Wales (spoiler alert: quite a bit).

Woodlands is in the hills in Devils Bridge village, in a walking haven with many walks leading directly from the site, and in a well-placed locale for fishing, mountain biking, golfing and birdwatching too (you'll often see a red kite or two soaring overhead).

It's a few minutes' walk from the village pub and the Vale of Rheidol steam train, and four miles from the red kite feeding station at Bwlch Nant yr Arian's Forestry Centre. Aberystwyth is 12 miles away and is one of several sandy beaches to visit up and down the Ceredigion coast.

The amenities block at Woodlands was newly built and added in 2014 and has very cleanly kept loos and (free) showers. Also on site is a shop, tearooms, a laundry room, games room and a children's play area; a free wifi hotspot is maintained for the use of all guests.

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.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    There was only one bin at the other side of the campsite wasn't much of a problem, but would of prefered a few more bins spread around the campsite.

  • Liked: 

    The pod was warm and comfortable. I slept really well, which is good for me as I rarely sleep well when in a new place. The toilet block was warm and clean. We only stayed for one as we were visiting Aberystwyth Uni. Would really consider coming here again with the rest of my family for a longer stay.

    What a lovely friendly place. We only booked it as a very last minute, spur of the moment Friday night treat. The site staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The site was immaculate. I can't even begin to describe how good the toilet, shower, laundry and washing up block is. What a fabulous place!

Directions


From Aberystwyth, take the A4120 towards Devils Bridge. Go through the village passing the Hafod Arms Hotel and Devils Bridge Waterfalls attraction. Continue for 200 yards and we are on the right-hand side.

From Newtown, take the A44 towards Aberystwyth. On entering the village of Ponterwyd turn left towards Devils Bridge. On entering the village we are on the left-hand side.

We are easily identified by the tearooms and a statue of a bronze horse at the entrance to our park.

Local attractions

The Devils Bridge Falls and the Three Bridges nature trail walk are only about a quarter of a mile from Woodlands Caravan Park and are – cleverly – what most guests go for first. The Vale of Rheidol Steam Train and the Hafod Arms Hotel & Bar are both within the same distance away.

Four miles away are four top west Wales attractions for all types: the daily red kite feeding at Bwlch Nant yr Arian Forestry Centre; its mountain bike trail; the guided walks and wooded landscape of the Hafod estate, and the Silver Mountain Experience, a day out among the old mines, streams and forests of the Cambrian mountains.

Those feeling more active than walks and mountain bike trails can provide could try Colossal Activities 11 miles from home, with a golf course, fishing lake, paintballing, kayaking and archery, or the Rheidol Riding Centre about 12 miles away.

The Elan Valley 15 miles away is an essential site for Welsh wiidife and is often called the Welsh Lake District: head here for the Elan Valley Reservoirs and the only purpose-built arts and crafts mini village in Wales. Or if you fancy the beach, the sands of Borth Beach and the sand dunes of Ynys Las are within 15 and 17 miles.

Another beach is at nearby Aberystwyth, along with its famed Constitution Hill, Camera Obscura and cliff railway, and the Magic of Life Butterfly House, with hundreds of butterflies, heaps of giant caterpillars, odd insects and walks (and more waterfalls) in the Rheidol Valley. If the kids like this, take them along too to Fantasy Farm Park 19 miles away.

Must see

  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (10.2 miles)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (14.7 miles)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (17.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines (23.5 miles)
