Fron Rafel: Seating outside yurt

General

  • Small family- and dog-friendly site with views over the Teifi valley
  • A five-minute drive from Newcastle Emlyn and 15 to Cenarth Falls
  • Poppit Sands, Llangrannog and Aberporth beaches reachable in 30 mins

Turn up in the Teifi valley for a Welsh welcome at Fron Rafel, a small family-run site spread over seven acres whose friendly vibes and helpful staff are as tiptop as the views of the countryside from the grounds.

As well as being in a lush rural area in west Wales, this dog-friendly place is less than 10 minutes’ drive to the popular settlement of Newcastle Emlyn and 35 minutes from the family-friendly beach of Poppit Sands (lifeguarded in summer), so you can switch between coastal and town times with ease.

Countryside explores are also prime around this park, with Cenarth Falls and its leaping salmon 15 minutes’ drive for waterfall hiking and sightseeing; for mountain biking and more walks, Brechfa Forest is within half an hour. Up for getting out on the water? A local adventure company can arrange canoe trips and other outdoor activities in the site's Carmarthenshire surroundings.

If you fancy browsing the shops in Cardigan and Carmarthen instead, both are about half an hour from the park. Restaurants are dotted around these market towns as well as closer by and a well-stocked supermarket is within a couple of miles for picking up ready meals to warm up in the microwave back on base.

Other amenities at the site include a newly restored piggery building with ladies’ and gents’ shower rooms and a family wetroom plus washing-up facilities and a toaster at one end of the block. The park also has your essentials sorted with a chemical disposal and two washing machines, free for guests to use.

    Steve (the owner) is attentive and helpful without being overbearing; giving us tips for putting up our awning etc.. as new caravanners and checking that everything was OK..
    Pitches had individual water, so no trekking miles to collect.
    Dogs welcome
    Also offer a caravan which is set up ready for people to try or could be used for friends/family without a tent/caravan wishing to join you....there is also a yurt and static caravan available..

    Will definitely be going back !!

    Lovely small & quiet site in a great location.
    Pitches were flat and each had it's own water tap.
    The whole site was well kept and cared for.
    The facilities were clean and showers/bathrooms like home from home.
    We had a personal text from Steve the owner on the morning of arrival telling us where to pitch which was a really nice touch. When we arrived and parked up Steve came and welcomed us to the site and came around each day to say a friendly hello and check all was ok.
    We've found a little gem here and will be back - Highly recommend.

    5* for peace, calmness and friendliness. Steve the owner is very welcoming. Even helped setting up as it was our first ever trip. Lots of advise was greatly received.

    There is everything you need ( kitchen, washroom).

    The site is perfect, well maintained and has a dog field.

    The area is so calming. And a great base if you want to go and explore.

    We’ve actually been back three times this month & have another two weekend breaks booked.

    A small, friendly, dog friendly, calming, peaceful, in a beautiful setting place to stay.
