Woodland Rise Camping and Caravanning: Aerial view of Blaenycoed

General

  • Family-run site with plenty of nearby walks
  • Dog friendly
  • Newly-built amenities cabin with hot showers

Woodland Rise Camping and Caravanning is a place for west Wales walkies. It's a family-run farm in the Carmarthenshire countryside, with plenty of space for dogs to stretch their legs and with local woodland trails where they can investigate All The Smells. And it's close to bluebell woods, and less than half an hour from magnificent coastal walks along the headlands of Carmarthenshire and Cardigan...

Woodland Rise is in a meadow location on the farm of Fferm Fach in the quiet village of Blaen-y-coed, a peacefully rural location with west Wales views by day and starry skies by night. It has a newly-built and cosy amenities cabin with well-maintained toilets, two additional separate toilets, hot showers and washing-up facilities; a chemical disposal point and gas sales. Wifi is available for an extra fee, but please note that the rural location imposes limits on the wifi speed.

The nearest place for supplies is Carmarthen about six miles away; nearby restaurants include the Blue Bell Inn Chinese restaurant (two miles) and the Nag's Head (ten miles). Barbecues are allowed on site.

Please note

    We loved the site. It is in a stunning location with views that you can watch for hours. It has toilets, showers and a kitchen area for washing up. The camp fridge was a surprise and blessing during the heatwave and Trevor sells a variety of ice lollies at very reasonable prices!

    We took our dog with us and he was spoiled by the site as Trevor has mowed the edges of three empty fields away from the main site and these can be walked in peace and off-lead.

    The location sets you at the heart of many places to visit, incredible places to eat and among a community that is friendly and welcoming. We are definitely coming back!! Thank you for such a lovely stay.

    Disliked: 

    Being very picky but with young children I didn't like that ball games wasn't allowed, there is big fields right next to you that they can play in but that means you have to go and watch them which when you're busy can be a pain, also with young kids showering we felt like we flooded the place

From the manager...

Thank you for leaving your review of Woodland Rise. We have in the past fielded complaints from clients who dislike balls inadvertently hitting their tents or their vehicles. Consequently, we made available an additional area where this will not cause a problem and we provide cones to use as goalposts for the more team-oriented games. The position with the showers draining is one of which we are aware and will endeavour to attend to as part of our regular maintenance during the winter months but this does not usually cause a problem with adult use.

    There was no electric option when we arrived and had no access until the day we left. Also ordered a fire pit and paid extra and was not offered the pit.

From the manager...

Thank you for leaving your review of Woodland Rise. All of our pitches have electrical hookup available and connected. Due to my ill health on the day of your arrival, I was not able to point out this to you individually at the time as I would usually, however you found the hookup yourself. Likewise, due to my ill health, I did not provide you with a firepit. for which I apologise. If you contact me by phone then I will arrange for you to be refunded the cost of the firepit hire.

Local attractions

Feel free to wander around the Woodland Rise meadow grounds if you fancy a stroll very close to home; a short walk away from site is a bluebell wood recommended by the farm team for morning meanders.

The 600 acres of countryside, formal gardens and a nature reserve of the National Botanic Gardens of Wales are 15 miles or about half an hour's drive away and are a ripping option for a day out (although be aware that you won't be allowed in if you do have your dog on holiday with you).

The Dylan Thomas Boathouse, where the writer spent the last four years of his life, is about 15 miles away at Laugharne and has lyrically good views of the Taf Estuary and a tearoom noted as one of the top ten places in the UK for afternoon tea (soup, snacks, light lunches, homemade Welsh cakes and bara beith are also available).

The 11h-century castle of Kidwelly 17 miles away is a must-see for history buffs in the region, still surviving after Owain Glyndwr’s attempts to destroy it (naughty);. If you fancy more of the same, Kidwelly is one of 12 castles in Carmarthenshire.

A bit further afield at 24 miles but well worth the drive is the Colby Woodland Garden in Pembrokeshire, managed by the National Trust: come here to build dens, use the rope swings, amble along on a wildlife walk or join in the regular activities like campfire building.

About six miles from Woodland Rise Camping and Caravanning, the Gwili Steam Railway company runs a preserved service from Bronwydd along a section of the old Carmarthen-Aberstwyth line.

Must see

  • National Wool Museum (11.7 kilometres)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (19.5 kilometres)
  • Aberglasney Gardens (23.5 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Aberdeunant (28.0 kilometres)
  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines (33.8 kilometres)
