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 and enjoy 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.

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.

Please be aware this site does not have any facilities for children or teenagers: it is a quiet site more suitable for mature couples.

Basic site only really suitable for summer use. 28/11/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Alison B. Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Good views of the hills and the animals (ponies, chickens & ducks) would be great for children in the summer.

    Disliked: 

    The site is fairly basic, certainly for winter use. The shower block is not that warm and just doesn’t smell nice although the water did flow hot from the shower when tested.
    No one was there to meet us or to tell us which pitch to use. The mobile number was switched off !!. As a result of reading other reviews I realised that others had experienced this & just helped themselves so thats what we did too. Someone did finally come & say hello at the field gate but didnt seem to know about us coming.
    There is nothing at the site and its a way to walk into Cardigan so be prepared to drive anywhere (or possibly catch the bus although we didnt try this) you want to go.
    There is also some road noise at night.

    Ease of access to Cardigan from site. Clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Shower block likely to be cold in winter months as heating not the best. No reception and did not see owners during stay; seems that you just turn up and take any pitch. Traffic noise from road.

    Proximity to Cardigan and other places of interest

    Disliked: 

    Nobody on site to allocate a pitch we had to phone them .We were told to take whichever pitch we wanted so we told them the number we took. Went out for the day came back late afternoon and someone else had taken our pitch so we had to move to another one. Not really the way to run a site a little bit of interaction with guests would be courteous.

  • Electric hardstanding touring pitch

  • Liked: 

    its a nice tidy camp with lots of room for the caravan and car to move around in, the shower blocks was clean and tidy as well. its a nice quite place if you just want to chill, there was a tesco's store just down the road 2min in the car. cant tell you what the owner were like cos we never saw them.

    Disliked: 

    not much to dislike apart from water in shower blocks could of been hotter, the water in the bucket with the mop in didn't smell the best when you mop the floor, and driving in off the main road you have to drive slow cos of the pot holes as u come in. apart from that i would come again.

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 offers good shopping, drinking and eating, as well as a cinema, theatre and swimming pool. It’s a place with a fascinating history, too: check out Cardigan Castle, St Dogmael's Abbey, and the beautiful Guildhall building, which now houses the town’s market.

Beach lovers, rejoice: a 10-minute drive will take you to the sands of Mwnt and Aberport, 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, but obviously it takes a bit longer).

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.



Athletic types will find a good range of golf courses, horse riding, river and sea fishing on hand, as well as kayaking and canoeing in the picturesque 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 offers a more relaxed meander past tranquil coves and breathtaking beaches, plus further wildlife and birdwatching opportunities.
 


Families will also enjoy the Oakwood Theme Park and the Folly Farm adventure park and zoo.
