General

  • Family-run park between Aberystwyth and Swansea
  • Four miles from the beach at Aberporth
  • Pool, bar, clubhouse, amusement arcade and play area

Pilbach Holiday Park is a family-run holiday park welcoming families for traditional holidays among Welsh countryside, seaside and towns, set between the busy towns of Aberystwyth less than an hour away and Swansea within 30 minutes' south.

Each section of the park, from the spotless amenities blocks to the well-maintained pitches to the sunbathing area around the pool, is naturally secluded by well-pruned hedges blooming with bright laburnum. The many facilities on site include a heated outdoor pool with paddling area, a bar and a clubhouse, along with an amusement arcade and a playing field with swings and climbing frames. Activities including quizzes, bingo and swimming pool games are run by the site to keep all ages entertained.

After a lazy lie in, you don't need to venture any further than the convenient little onsite shop for your hearty (or healthy) brekkie goods, to set you up for a day exploring the area or kicking back and relaxing on site.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/05 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Electricity is metered onsite at £0.14/kWh and must be paid at the campsite.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately we pitched next to the caravan toilet disposal and cleaning area so was not always pleasant as it is exposed and the odd smell drifted over , if they where to put a fence around it to shelter it from others be much better

    Very friendly. Spacious pitches. Lovely heated pool. Facilities Ok.

    For us the drive to get there. Small country lanes not great when towing. This wouldn't be a problem for everyone though and it's a beautiful picturesque drive.

Overall a good site but there are issues but minor ones 29/05/2018

    The caravan park is lovely and the site is beautiful, quite small but not cramped. We stayed in the tent field with 2 pitches, for my friend and her 2 boys and myself and 2 teenagers. We were met by a lovely lady who directed us to our pitch where a gentleman was waiting for us. We questioned the use of electricity as I have to be on a breathing machine overnight continuously and was told that the £5 token that I had bought would be ample. The pool was beautiful and so was the weather (apart from one night). We did eat in the restaurant and the prices were reasonable.

    Disliked: 

    The facilities such as the toilets/shower block a bit far away from the tent field especially if you are arthritic like me and struggled each time to walk to the toilet, ended up taking the car! No bins around the site or on the outside sun terrace outside the restaurant or by the pool. There was no availability of hot drinks at the bar as the machine was not working, also the soft drinks pump produced flat coke. The toilets had not been seen to on Sunday morning before 1030 and there was no loo paper available. There were a few other issues but will email campsite direct.

Directions

From Swansea:

Local attractions

History fiends, outdoor adventurers, seafarers, explorers, or just anyone who enjoys a good round of golf will find most of what they want within easy access of the park.

For beaches and spectacular scenery, start off at the sands and safe bathing waters of splendid Cardigan Bay, a top spot too for sailing and other watersports if you prefer to be on the water rather than in it. Amble into the village of Aberporth at the southern tip of the bay for another spectacular beach as well as a nosy at the bottlenose dolphins that live in its waters.

Other nearby beaches include Penbryn, Tresaith, Mwnt, New Quay (once home to Dylan Thomas), Llangranno (make sure to visit the trad pub overlooking the sea) and Aberporth, ten minutes northwest of Pilbach and with sandy rockpooling areas and a frequent lifeguard service. Snap shots at any of these for social media boasting, or trek six miles from Pilbach for more smashing photos at Cenarth Falls.

The busier holiday towns of Tenby, Saundersfoot and Fishguard (with ferries to Rosslare) are within an hour of Pilbach Holiday Park, or for a shopping fix, the university town of Aberystwyth is just under an hour to the north and Swansea is around 30 minutes to the south.

Exercise your hobbies including tennis, canoeing, golf and fishing around here too (the River Teifi’s salmon and trout make for a great catch or two), or take avid young Horrible History fans to brush up on their knowledge of yesteryear at the area’s castles, religious ruins, mines and woollen mills.
