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.

    Being asked every day if we were staying on site so we didn't have to pay entrance fee maybe a pass should be given to everyone staying on the site to avoid this

    The location of this site was stunning. We woke up to a lovely view of the bay. Staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming.
    We only stayed for 1 night but we managed to walk around the farm twice and even saw a seal.
    The facilities were very clean and well kept.
    Pitches are on a gentle slope but this was not an issue for us.
    We would love to visit here again.

    Disliked: 

    The site was great but the hotels/restaurants within walking distance were a bit expensive and very busy.

    Location. Beautiful site overlooking the sea. The farm is on site which includes a lovely walk to a seal viewing point. On top of seeing the cutest piglets and lambs at the farm, We saw seals, oyster catchers, cormorants and a couple of sparrowhawks during the walk. An absolute wildlife haven!

    Disliked: 

    We did not see any restaurants or shops in walking distance of farm. Cardigan which is beautiful is approx 10 minute drive. Plenty of restaurants and shops there.
    Pitches are not level so remember your blocks! Worth it though!!!

    A great location and facility. Worth a visit even if you’re not camping there.
    Staff really friendly and go out of their way to help.
    The shower and toilet block are some of the cleanest I’ve seen.
    Activities for the kids both inside and out great.
    The sampling food in the cafe is a must.

    Disliked: 

    The site needs some hard standing pitches, even if it’s just for larger motor homes. Feilds are on a slope and do get wet. We got a little stuck on the way into the top feild.
    (Minor gripe) Although very clean the shower and toilet block do spoil the view from the camping fields :-)

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)
