Fron Rafel: Hardstanding with grass

General

  • Small family- and dog-friendly site with views over the Teifi valley
  • A five-minute drive from Newcastle Emlyn and 15 to Cenarth Falls
  • Poppit Sands, Llangrannog and Aberporth beaches reachable in 30 mins

Turn up in the Teifi valley for a Welsh welcome at Fron Rafel, a small family-run site spread over seven acres whose friendly vibes and helpful staff are as tiptop as the views of the countryside from the grounds.

As well as being in a lush rural area in west Wales, this dog-friendly place is less than 10 minutes’ drive to the popular settlement of Newcastle Emlyn and 35 minutes from the family-friendly beach of Poppit Sands (lifeguarded in summer), so you can switch between coastal and town times with ease.

Countryside explores are also prime around this park, with Cenarth Falls and its leaping salmon 15 minutes’ drive for waterfall hiking and sightseeing; for mountain biking and more walks, Brechfa Forest is within half an hour. Up for getting out on the water? A local adventure company can arrange canoe trips and other outdoor activities in the site's Carmarthenshire surroundings.

If you fancy browsing the shops in Cardigan and Carmarthen instead, both are about half an hour from the park. Restaurants are dotted around these market towns as well as closer by and a well-stocked supermarket is within a couple of miles for picking up ready meals to warm up in the microwave back on base.

Other amenities at the site include a newly restored piggery building with ladies’ and gents’ shower rooms and a family wetroom plus washing-up facilities and a toaster at one end of the block. The park also has your essentials sorted with a chemical disposal and two washing machines, free for guests to use.

    All the facilities are clean, you can find in the kitchen anything you need, you have water and electricity by the tent. It's a quiet and peaceful place, with birds singing the whole day, surrounded by flowers and trees. All green and fresh, like a litthe heaven.And Steve, the owner, is the most helpful and friendly owner I've ever met. If you have a problem, Steve will solve it no doubt. We can't thank you enough Steve for your hospitality. We recommend the place with all our heart. Thank you Steven

    Absolutely loved our stay in the Hobbit Yurt. Cathy and Steve are a lovely friendly couple who made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. They really have thought of everything you need to have a relaxing enjoyable stay. Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable throughout our stay
    Beautiful peaceful location, great for exploring nearby coast and countryside. Cathy and Steve were on hand with local knowledge of places to visit.
    This really is a little gem of a campsite and I would definitely recommend.

    We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the static caravan and throughly enjoyed ourselves.
    The caravan is really well equipped and incredibly comfortable with 'proper' sofas to relax on in the evenings. There is a lovely decked area outside with a BBQ and seating area.
    The site itself is small and quiet and Steve the owner was wonderfully friendly and welcoming.

    What a fantastic place !
    We had the usual concerns having 2 young children [1&5] as well as our [14&12] year olds.. Security and Cleanliness, and Fron Rafel absolutely delivered on both ...
    Secure and spotlessly clean, The grounds are immaculate kept, Kitchen | Wet Room | Showers | Toilets all immaculate.
    This was our first time camping and I have to say we had an unbelievable few days here, kids can’t wait to go back Neither can I ....
    If carsberg did camp sites this would be it
