General

  • Family run for over 40 years
  • Less than two miles from beaches
  • Heated indoor pool, paddling pool and clubhouse

Want to pitch up in splendid New Quay on the Ceredigion coast, former home of Dylan Thomas and 20 minutes’ drive from rubbernecking at the bottlenose dolphins of Cardigan Bay? Pitch up at Pencnwc Holiday Park.

It’s less than two miles from New Quay’s safe beaches and harbour walls, five miles from the sands at Ceredigion and 20 from the university town of Aberystwyth; Cardigan is the same distance to the south. The site has been family-run for over 40 years so knows what’s what in making sure it has a stonking amount to do on site for pitchuppers of all sizes and inclinations.

After your warm Welsh welcome at reception, let the small sorts roam: they can take their pick from two on-site play areas, an amusingly big amusement arcade, splashing around in the heated indoor pool with adjacent paddling pool, or getting crafty making art, jewellery, sport and games at the free kids’ club. The entertainment runs into the evening in Merlyn’s Den, one of the two bars in the clubhouse, and is suitable for all sizes.

Seeking a slightly more sedate or grownup time? Hide yourself away in Pencnwc’s second pub Smugglers Bar for a coffee, newspaper or catching up with what’s happening in the world of sport on the bar’s numerous tellies; fish and chips, pies and other seaside snacks available from the Smugglers takeaway can be taken into the entertainment bar and the Smugglers bar serves sit-down meals. Or take munchies to the on-site fishing lake, where acres of space abound for quiet contemplation and no-one nicking your chips.

Small sorts probably won’t be too fussed about the onsite facilities, but grownups should be chuffed with the amenities on offer including loo and shower blocks with free hot water, a modern launderette and a washing-up area all kept in sparkingly good order among the flowers, shrubbery and well-maintained grounds.

There’s no food shop on site, but you’ll find two at the nearby village of Cross Inn, a few minutes’ walk from the site entrance.

    when we got there we were greeted by extremely friendly reception staff. The site was clean and tidy, toilets well maintained and clean.Good sized pitches. Fish and shop prives were quite reasonable, gravy was outstanding.

    Disliked: 

    Water tasted awful but not the sites fault. The chips tasted awful and looked undercooked. The amusement arcade was out of date and very small. although the pool was nice it was tiny. The hardstanding for the caravan/motorhome was brilliant, however, the area for the awnings is terrible, kept having to move the pegs as they constantly came loose

    Spotlessly clean, well kept large site, toilets and showers lovely. Particularly liked the free shuttle service to and from New Quay (lovely place). Would love to visit again with my grandson as they have a great club with entertainment and outdoor play area for kids but it was a 4 hour drive for us.

    Absolutely worth a visit and one of the best holiday parks on my list!

    No shop on site but one down the road.
