Pencnwc Holiday Park: Clubhouse with outdoor deck

General

  • Family run for over 40 years, two miles from the beach at New Quay
  • Fishing lake surrounded by acres of peaceful space
  • Pool, play areas, arcade, kids' club and clubhouse with two bars

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 it knows what’s what in making sure it has a stonking amount to do on site for guests 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 on-site 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 spankingly 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 away.

Directions


The M6 from the north links with the westbound M56 towards Chester. Take the A483 to Newtown then the A44 to Aberystwyth. New Quay is just 20 miles south on the A487.

From the Midlands, the A44 is the most direct route to Aberystwyth, then travel south to New Quay.

For people journeying from the south and south-east, the M4 links to Carmarthen from where you travel north on the A484 signposted to Newcastle Emlyn. At Llangelar, take a right turn on the A486 for New Quay.

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

The traditional fishing village of New Quay, two miles away, is, of course, a fine place for fishing – such boat trips bob out from the harbour here, as do dolphin-spotting outings. There's a fine population of the marine mammals nearby but for a cast-iron guarantee of wildlife sightings you may like to drop in at the town's Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre.

The market town of Cardigan (a hub for active pursuits) and the university town of Aberystwyth are both 20 miles away. Top local beaches are at Aberaeron (15 minutes' drive), and Llangrannog (20 minutes).

Must see

  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (5.7 miles)
  • National Wool Museum (11.4 miles)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (19.2 miles)

National Trust
