Looking towards Carningli

General

  • Peaceful, basic pitches at a well-established eco community
  • A half-hour footpath walk to Newport; 20 minutes' drive to Cardigan
  • In the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park at the foot of Carningli

Brithdir Mawr Wild and Eco Camping is a quiet site in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, at the foot of Carningli, two miles from the sea and about five minutes’ drive from Newport (that’s the Pembrokeshire Newport, not the one in south Wales…)

Stays here are in a designated field that’s part of a well-established eco community set up in 1994 on an 80-acre restored farm. The whole place is off-grid for electricity and uses water from mountain springs; recycling even stretches to toilet waste, which is composted to feed the site’s fruit trees.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of self-sufficiency or community living, this is the place to find out a bit more – over their 25 years they’ve learnt a thing or few and are happy to share the knowledge with those who’d like to take a tour, volunteer or join a training course.

Pitches here are similarly off-grid and basic: you can pitch wherever you wish in the field, and you’ll have access to new compost toilets, a washing-up sink, a handwashing sink and a bucket shower (where you heat the water to fill the bucket, hoist it up and enjoy a warm outdoor shower in a private cubicle). Also provided is a firepit, along with a sack of wood to get you started (if you need more, that will need to be bought on site).

For foodie needs, take a wander down to Newport: a footpath leads down there for a good clutch of cafés, restaurant and pubs, plus shops and an excellent butcher for your barbecue bits.

    I liked the fact that the site was in a fairly remote place, with good access to the Pembrokeshire coastline walking trails, via a small “mountain” With views of the surrounding area.. beautiful!
    The campsite was clean, and exactly as advised. I stayed two night and will certainly be going again! Oh and not to mention the night sky.... amazing!!
