General

  • Roomy site half a mile from the town of Cardigan
  • Spectacular views over Cardigan Bay and the Preseli mountains
  • Bus stop right outside the park entrance

Get close to Cardigan with a visit to this pretty site: Cardigan Caravan & Camping Site is the only campsite in the area within easy walking distance of the town... and guests will be greeted by the resident ducks, hens, Welsh cobs and Arab horses as well as a rather stately-looking white peacock.

Surrounded by mature hedgerows and oak trees, this roomy, well-equipped site at Aelybryn Farm is best suited to more mature guest looking for a quiet getaway. Make yourself at home for top-notch views (and spectacular sunsets) over Cardigan Bay and the Preseli mountains.

There'll be no worrying about navigating down small country lanes here as this site is directly off the main road and there isn't a caravan site closer to the town of Cardigan (which is within walking distance of the park). Want to leave the car or camper on site for the day? No problem: for getting out and about, guests can catch a bus from right outside the park entrance.

    Simplicity: - quiet, no distractions

    Disliked: 

    Lack of attention to detail: eg - no soap in soap dispensers, no seat in ladies showers, no response to email enquiries and nobody on hand to ‘meet and greet’ on arrival

    Easy to find and access just outside Cardigan. Walk into town and Tesco's okay going down but uphill on the way back. Taxi from town was only £5 though ...as we were carrying shopping. The facilities were very clean with the site consisting of just a large field which holds a small number of hardstanding and grass pitches. There are some beautiful beaches nearby especially the National Trust beach at Mwnt…..good car park great swimming and a café!

    Disliked: 

    We're used to someone being there to meet and greet but there was just a telephone number on the gate. Later someone did come and made sure we were okay though.

From the manager...

There is a cycle path opposite the campsite that takes you into Cardigan town and then joins up to other cycle paths. There is a also pavement opposite the campsite and a small country lane that takes you to Mwnt beach and the coastal path.

    Great camp site, relaxed, peaceful and tranquil with good clean facilities and a bus stop outside the entrance. We walked to pippin sands, and travelled to aberaeron and new quay via bus on our 6 night stay.
    Good 4G phone signal (Vodafone) for internet access.

    Disliked: 

    Slightly windy at times, but that’s the British weather for you!

Directions


Take the A487 north from Cardigan, the site is half a mile outside the town on your right, opposite Caemorgan Road. The site is signposted Cardigan Caravan and Camping at Aelybryn.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The ancient market town of Cardigan is only half a mile from the park (the bus in stops right outside the entrance) and has good shopping, drinking and eating as well as a cinema, theatre and swimming pool. It’s a place with a lengthy history too: check out Cardigan Castle, St Dogmael's Abbey, and the Guildhall building, which now houses the town’s market.

Beach buffs rejoice: a 10-minute drive will take you to the sands of Mwnt and Aberporth, and a few minutes further away you’ll find masses more of the golden stuff at Poppit, Tresaith, Newport and Penbryn (all these can also be reached by bus too).

In addition to the thousands of rare sea birds to be found on this stretch of coast, animal fans can spot Atlantic grey seals and bottle-nosed dolphins in Cardigan Bay, visit the Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park, or flit amongst the butterflies at the Felinwynt Rainforest Centre.

The equestrian-inclined will enjoy horsing around at Cardigan's Barley Saturday (end of April), the Agricultural Show (July), and nearby Aberaeron’s Festival of Welsh Ponies and Cobs (August). Autumn visitors can see the dramatic spectacle of salmon and sea trout leaping up the cascading waterfalls at Cenarth Falls.

A good range of golf courses, horse riding, river and sea fishing are on hand for athletic types, as well as kayaking and canoeing in the pretty Cilgerran Gorge.

For adventure seekers, this area is renowned for coasteering (high impact climbing, scrambling, canyoning, swimming, jumping and diving along the rocky coastline); alternatively, the Ceredigion coastal path is the place for a more relaxed meander past coves and beaches, via further wildlife and birdwatching.
