Capel Tygwydd Camping and Caravans: Pitches with a view

General

  • Small campsite with views of the Preseli Hills in rural Ceredigion
  • A 15-minute drive to Cardigan, with several beaches 20 minutes away
  • Working farm site with a communal kitchen; shops and pubs close by

A small and friendly wild campsite on a working farm, Capel Tygwydd Camping and Caravans has truly spectacular views across the Preseli Hills. Families, dogs and kids – all are welcome at owner Farmer Gordon’s rural site in Ceredigion, with horses, donkeys (they love carrots) and cattle grazing peacefully in neighbouring fields.

With plenty of room up on that hilltop, you’ll never feel crowded, and with no defined pitches, you can pick a spot that works for you. With parking by your pitch, you have no need to lug stuff across fields, and there’s a wifi connection too, so you can keep in touch with folks back home.

Simple on-site amenities include a shower and loo block, plus washing-up facilities and a no-frills communal kitchen decked out with a fridge and microwave, where you can rustle up snacks and hot drinks.

Pick up bits and pieces in Newcastle Emlyn (five minutes’ drive) or head off to Cardigan (15 minutes) for a bigger choice of shops. And while you’re there, stop a while to explore the Norman castle, have a stroll along the Teifi river and sink a pint in a pub – there are handy takeaways as well, serving pizzas, tacos or curries for a treat back at the camping field.

The site is a 40-minute walk from the Cenarth Falls beauty spot, and you can keep the mutts happy with bracing walks along dog-friendly Aberporth or Poppit Sands beaches, both less than half an hour away.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

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

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Location had fantastic views of the Prescelli Hills.
    Ground was relatively flat with only a slight slope.
    The owner of the campsite was really friendly and was regularly going round to check everyone was OK.
    On site Donkey and Horse were lovely, the kids loved feeding them carrots and they were very friendly.
    The site was quiet.
    Toilets and showers were very clean and being electric, showers had constant hot water.

    Disliked: 

    Very little, the nature of the hills around there means that there was a lot of mist overnight and every morning the tent was sopping wet even though it hadn't rained. This made it harder to pack up dry on the day we left.

Local attractions

It’s an easy job keeping the kids entertained on fabulous beaches at Aberporth (15 minutes’ drive), Poppit Sands (20 minutes) and Traeth Mwnt (25 minutes), and there’s plenty more for them to do as well. Book them a beastie hunt at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, and keep your eyes peeled for otters and herons on walks at Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve (both 20 minutes).

Get the low down on local Ceredigion produce with tours and tastings at Caws Cenarth Cheese (15 minutes), or sample the organic gin flavoured with seaweed at Dà Mhìle Distillery (20 minutes) before you buy. Along with gorgeous textiles at the National Wool Museum (15 minutes), there are loads of foodie events and cocktail masterclasses (book ahead of time).

As well as the long-distance Wales Coast Path (15 minutes), you can try gentler strolls around the shrubberies and orchards at eco-friendly Forest Garden Wales (five minutes) and round off an action-filled day with a relaxing chug through wooded countryside on the Teifi Valley Railway (15 minutes).
