Sunny days at Dolbryn

General

  • Peaceful family site in a Teifi valley wildlife haven
  • A five-minute drive from Newcastle Emlyn and the River Teifi
  • Fishing pond; cosy bar; shop and arts, crafts and farm activities

Sick of wrestling the X-box from your little monkeys’ paws and chasing them out into the fresh air? Take them to talk to the animals at this fab and family-friendly south Wales farm site instead. Or go along with your other half for some rural relaxation – the owners of quiet and secluded Dolbryn Caravan and Camping, near Newcastle Emlyn in Carmarthenshire, know what make all sorts tick.

For grown-up concerns, Dolbryn has a small fishing pond on site for a couple of hours’ chilling, or you could just wander around site and spy some species: this is a wildlife haven site, with birds, fruit and flowers spottable around the valley, stream, ponds and hedgerows.

Small people have plenty laid on to keep them entertained, including arts and crafts events, helping to feed the chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, pigs and goats every morning, and the Sticky Club for an hour on Sunday mornings in high season (under-eights must be accompanied by an adult).

The amenities at Dolbryn are well thought out: original and refurbished farm buildings with separate heated wash facilities for ladies and gents; a family room with disabled access, a large fridge freezer for guests’ use and a laundry room with two washing machines.

Another barn has been turned into a cosy family-friendly bar that's open at weekends and evenings in high season, and there's also a small shop with a range of locally reared meat and baked goodies as well as everyday essentials.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review - we're glad you enjoyed the site.
We also think it's a shame there aren't any footpaths nearby - we're working hard to increase our walk library of local walking routes to try and counteract this. Thanks very much for the feedback.
Hope to see you another time,

    Absolutely lovely site. Staff were friendly from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Plenty to do on site from the newly built playground, to the steam, to the walk around the vineyards, to fishing, little onset barn bar (only open on certain days) to the benches at the top of the site to view the sunset. Facilities were exceptionally clean. Theres a teenagers room with a few basic things in. Animal feeding during holiday time (pigs, chickens, rabbits and a guinea pig).

    Disliked: 

    My only one little grumble is the lack of heating in the toilet and shower blocks during our stay because it was very cold in the early mornings. Don't let this put you off though. The positives out way the negatives by 100 to 1.

From the manager...

Thanks so much for writing a review - very much appreciated. We're thrilled you loved the site, and it was great to meet you all.
Thanks too for your comment about the toilet and shower block heating, we have taken it on board. And we do appreciate that although they are clean, the washroom facilities are quite rustic! We are looking to upgrade and renovate them in the next 1-2 years, so we're hoping to install a more efficient heating system then.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you all another time :)

    EVERYTHING.

    Lovely campsite. Toilets and showers spotless.
    Lovely spacious pitches
    Owners are a lovely couple.
    Bonus for us was the dog walking field as the first 7 days it rained nonstop so we didnt really get out much.we have 2 little pugs who loved the field...
    I was recuperating from an illness so the peaceful and lovely quiet campsite was perfect. Just what a campsite should be.
    If there was 10 stars this campsite would of got them.
    Never enjoyed a campsite as much as this even if the wind and rain was horrendous. we have been to lots of campsites but this is the only one that as ticked all our boxes..
    Thanks Sioned for a lovely stay.
    See you next year

Directions


Turn south off the A484 in Newcastle Emlyn towards Capel Iwan. After the leisure centre turn left and follow the signs for two miles. The site is on the right after Bronygarn garage.

If you are using a GPS system please ensure that you go to Newcastle Emlyn and then to Dolbryn. Do not go via Capel Iwan (the village) as the route is very narrow.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Dolbryn's location is among award-winning beaches, coastal walks, fishing and more wildlife spotting, as well as waterfalls, steam railways, theme parks and family days out (the Welsh Chocolate Farm should be a sweet hit with anyone).

Start off on the doorstep at the market town of Newcastle Emlyn, on the River Teifi two miles from Dolbryn and with castle ruin, farmers’ market, shops and cafés; a leisure centre with indoor pool is nearby too.

The village of Cenarth, a few miles away on the borders of Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire, is famed for its small waterfall Cenarth Falls and for its salmon fishing. The National Coracle Centre, a museum devoted to the small traditional boats, overlooks the falls along with the old flour grinder Cenarth Mill.

Heading coastwards for half an hour or so, the coastal paths and beaches around west Wales could be combed for weeks: try the beaches of Newport Bay, Fishguard and Aberporth, porpoise and dolphin spotting around Cardigan Bay, home of one of only two pods of bottlenose dolphins in the UK.

Must see

  • National Wool Museum (5.7 kilometers)
  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (28.3 kilometers)
