Capel Tygwydd Camping and Caravans: Pitches with a view

General

  • Small campsite with views of the Preseli Hills in rural Ceredigion
  • A 15-minute drive to Cardigan, with several beaches 20 minutes away
  • Working farm site with a communal kitchen; shops and pubs close by

A small and friendly wild campsite on a working farm, Capel Tygwydd Camping and Caravans has truly spectacular views across the Preseli Hills. Families, dogs and kids – all are welcome at owner Farmer Gordon’s rural site in Ceredigion, with horses, donkeys (they love carrots) and cattle grazing peacefully in neighbouring fields.

With plenty of room up on that hilltop, you’ll never feel crowded, and with no defined pitches, you can pick a spot that works for you. With parking by your pitch, you have no need to lug stuff across fields, and there’s a wifi connection too, so you can keep in touch with folks back home.

Simple on-site amenities include a shower and loo block, plus washing-up facilities and a no-frills communal kitchen decked out with a fridge and microwave, where you can rustle up snacks and hot drinks.

Pick up bits and pieces in Newcastle Emlyn (five minutes’ drive) or head off to Cardigan (15 minutes) for a bigger choice of shops. And while you’re there, stop a while to explore the Norman castle, have a stroll along the Teifi river and sink a pint in a pub – there are handy takeaways as well, serving pizzas, tacos or curries for a treat back at the camping field.

The site is a 40-minute walk from the Cenarth Falls beauty spot, and you can keep the mutts happy with bracing walks along dog-friendly Aberporth or Poppit Sands beaches, both less than half an hour away.

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Nice quiet rural location for a peaceful nights stay. Farmer Gordon was friendly and welcoming on my arrival after a long day driving and exploring. Annie the border collie was also very friendly and kept me company by letting me playing fetch with her, she didn't even mind my terrible throwing.

    Gordon is very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. He gave great local advice, a friendly chat and obviously has a passion for his site. Large pitches, toilets and showers were spotless. Added bonus of the microwave and fridges. Beautiful views, very dog friendly. We will be back here that’s for sure.

Local attractions

It’s an easy job keeping the kids entertained on fabulous beaches at Aberporth (15 minutes’ drive), Poppit Sands (20 minutes) and Traeth Mwnt (25 minutes), and there’s plenty more for them to do as well. Book them a beastie hunt at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, and keep your eyes peeled for otters and herons on walks at Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve (both 20 minutes).

Get the low down on local Ceredigion produce with tours and tastings at Caws Cenarth Cheese (15 minutes), or sample the organic gin flavoured with seaweed at Dà Mhìle Distillery (20 minutes) before you buy. Along with gorgeous textiles at the National Wool Museum (15 minutes), there are loads of foodie events and cocktail masterclasses (book ahead of time).

As well as the long-distance Wales Coast Path (15 minutes), you can try gentler strolls around the shrubberies and orchards at eco-friendly Forest Garden Wales (five minutes) and round off an action-filled day with a relaxing chug through wooded countryside on the Teifi Valley Railway (15 minutes).
