Blaencwm Cottages: Double bed

General

  • Glamping pod near the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
  • Within a 25 minute-drive of award-winning Mwnt beach
  • Four-acre smallholding half an hour's drive from Oakwood Theme Park

Castles, coast walks and cathedral cities… you can see the lot from this top spot. Blaencwm Cottages has a single glamping pod on a four-acre smallholding a short drive away from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and the pubs, shops, tearooms, theatre, cinema and leisure centre of Cardigan.

Winner of awards, heaped with accolades by travel writers and simply loved by legions of visitors every year, the sheltered bay, soft sands and clear waters of Mwnt beach are a 25-minute drive away: bring binoculars and you might spot some of the dolphins, seals and porpoises who adopted it as their top spot a long time ago. If you want to get closer to the marine life, make the 40-minute trip to New Quay for a sea safari, but if you're more into wave riding than nature watching it's about an hour to the surfers' hotspot on the Pembrokeshire coast, Newgale.

Back at base, Blaencwm is a hugely scenic spot to settle down in for a spell, with views of the Pembrokeshire countryside and the Preseli Hills, a duck pond and peaceful surroundings for wildlife watching, and free-roaming chickens to greet.

The pod has its own shower and toilet, along with a barbecue and mini kitchen (with kettle, microwave and toaster) but please note that bed linen and duvet is only provided for the double bed (if you want to use the sofa bed you'll need to bring extras).

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

The site caters for families (immediate members) and couples only - bookings from all other forms of groups are not accepted.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Arrived to be greeting by Dave and Ann who's hospitality was fantastic. With two young children this location was perfect given the close interaction with the Ducks, Rabbits and of course our favourite the 3 very entertaining Geese. When we entered the pod Ann had baked 4 slices of delicious home made cake :-) which of course went down very well with the children. The pod was clean and tidy with pretty much everything we required covered. Would highly recommend the pod and we'll most certainly be retuning in the near future. Thank You Dave and Ann for making our stay a very memorable one. 10/10

    The grounds were beautifully maintained and a pleasure to arrive at. All the animals were clean and well cared for and provided entertainment for the children through out. The surrounding area had so many family friendly activities to offer that we had lots of choice of activities. The pod was also very well equipped and rainy weather was not a problem.

    Absolutely wonderful long weekend stay in the glamping pod. As a single parent with 2 children I was naturally nervous taking the kids away on my own. However Dave and Ann made us feel very welcome and safe from the start, they even took time out of their day to show the children the farm animals and advised on places to visit. They were genuinely just wonderful, friendly hosts. The pod was fantastic, clean and catering for every need, beautiful views and surprisingly warm at night. We even got homemade cake on arrival. I would highly recommend a stay here and will hopefully be back again. The children didn't want to leave!!!

Local attractions

Building sandy castles on the beach is all well and good, but you can also bag a good half-dozen of the real thing round here: forever swapping hands until it was finally abandoned in 1400, Cilgerran Castle is a 10-minute drive away; it's 15 minutes to the crackingly well-restored Cardigan Castle, and 20 to the 13th-century ruins up at Newcastle Emlyn.

If you want to take yourself back in time a little further, make for Castell Henllys, 15 minutes away, where you can experience Iron Age life in a replica roundhouse village. There's more recent history to be explored and experienced at National Trust Llanerchaeron 50 minutes away, where the 18th-century villa and walled gardens are accompanied by a traditional working farm.

For thrill rides, high ropes and high-octane activities topped off with pettable furry animals and exotic beasts, the family-friendly trio of Oakwood Theme Park, Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo and Heatherton World of Activities are half an hour, 40 minutes and an hour away.

Quieter times can be had wandering the coastline, joining up with the Pembrokeshire Coast Path just north of Poppit Sands 20 minutes away, or strolling the streets and cathedral of ancient St. Davids, officially the UK's smallest city and an hour from the site.

Must see

  • National Wool Museum (10.2 miles)
