General

  • Campsite adjacent to Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park: free entry
  • On a scenic headland with sea views
  • Friendly farm animals and a llama, emu and wallaby on site

If you'd like to go nature spotting in Wales, consider Cardigan Bay and the nature reserve Cardigan Island. And if you'd like to stay in the Cardigan Island vicinity, go to Cardigan Island Coastal Farm Park, a campsite adjacent to the popular and family-run farm park of the same name, set on a scenic headland with views of Cardigan Island and the dolphins below.

Cardigan Island, 200 yards offshore and visible from the campsite, has thousands of nesting seabirds to see, a flock of wild Soay sheep (originally from the Scottish Isle of Soay, south of Skye) and a colony of grey Atlantic seals breeding in the many caves below the farm park cliffs (you and the kids should be able to see them every day of your stay). The bay's bottlenose dolphins also frequent these waters, particularly on calm days when they swim closer to the shore and can be seen from the farm park.

On site, there's a variety of friendly animals to meet including pigs, sheep, goats, rarebreed cattle, ponies, chickens, rabbits, ducks, geese and a donkey, and a llama, emu and wallaby representing non-natives. There's also an adventure playground and sandpit for the kids, and a large visitor centre (open daily from 10am to 6pm) with a café, gift shop and plenty of play equipment.

The campsite itself is on a gentle slope with spectacular views over the farm park and out to sea, and has showers, loos and dishwashing facilities on site. Other loos and a baby changing area are in the visitor centre when it's open.

And yet another cracking thing about staying at this Cardigan Island campsite? Entrance to the farm park is free for guests.

Please note

A charge of 50p applies for the use of shower.

    Disliked: 

    Campers were let in a 10pm by the owners
    Proceeded to have a BBQ at 11:30pm additional members of the same group continued to arrive up until 2:30am and pitched their tent with music playing from their car and headlights on full beam until 3:30am
    Complained to owners wife the following morning who gave little sympathy; she was more concerned about getting payment from the people who arrived in the middle of the night instead of addressing issues raised. No refund given for night we were kept awake and no action taken so we left a night early and were abruptly asked to ensure we left by 12pm.

    The veiws where beautiful, great facilities and activities for the kids, clean warm showers.

    Disliked: 

    Being told off like a child by the woman at the front desk in front of other guests, when going to pay for my pitch. Totally unprofessional and embarrassing. A member of our group turned up in the early hours after having to work late (9:30pm) and traveling 4 hours from the midlands as he was really looking forward to the trip. Another guest complained about us saying we where loud, playing music and having a full on party. We wheren't being loud, their wasn't any music and we had children asleep in the tent next to us who slept soundly all night. No other guests complained and considering we where a big group, it was a Friday night and we where on holiday we where very considerate to the other other guests. Would have respected the lady a lot more if she came and spoke to us like adults, rather than every time a different member of our group went in being attacked.

    Bery clean and quiet campsite. All what you would need for your camping holiday. Fantastic views, lovely walk through the park to see the animals also dolphins and sea lions at the end. Small walk to the pub, for good good, with again fab views.

    Disliked: 

    had to pay an additional 50p for each shower. Only a small fee, however, when already paid for the site, don't expect an additional fee.

Local attractions

After a day at the farm park, several cracking and family-friendly beaches are in the area: have days at Mwnt (and the Church of the Holy Cross), Aberporth, Tresaith, Penbryn, Llangrannog, Newquay and Poppit Sands for smashingly scenic sands.

Shoppers, pubbers and restaurant goers will find plenty of picks in Cardigan town, as well as a golf club, swimming pool, the Theatre Mwldan and the Custom House shop and gallery. Then lace up the walking boots, as both the Ceredigion Coast Path and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path are accessible from Cardigan: take either path to Amroth about nine miles away for more spectacular scenery of Cardigan Bay.

Cardigan Bay stayers could also check out some Welsh history at St Dogmaels Abbey, Cilgerran Castle and the National Wool Museum, splash around Cenarth Falls and the National Coracle Centre, and see yet more animals at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, with nature trails, willow maze, water buffalo and giant willow badger.

Must see

  • National Wool Museum (13.7 miles)
  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (20.3 miles)
  • St Davids Cathedral (29.6 miles)
