Fron Rafel: Hardstanding with grass

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.

    There is no doubt that Fron Rafel deserves a 5 star rating as it has everything you could wish for - an excellent welcome from Steve the owner, sound advice on manoeuvring onto the pitch, water and electric connections pitch side and super facilities. Match that with wonderful views, abundant bird life but a quiet off main road location so no disturbances - it makes for a splendid combination. The site is conveniently located near to Newcastle Emlyn for shops, bars and restaurants and near enough to Cardigan Bay for beaches and coastal walking. the site even offers a refurbished static caravan, a double axle caravan for newbies to try caravanning, a Yurt and a Shepherd's Hut - you will be spoilt for choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay and have no reservation in recommending the site to others.

    Our only recommendations for other tourers would be firstly, to ensure you have levelling blocks as the top pitches have a slight gradient and you will need to raise the side facing downhill and secondly, follow Steve's route directions to stay on the A484 from Carmarthen until Pentrecagal and not get distracted by the many other signs to the National Wool Museum like we did and had a tight squeeze and steep gradients in some places. Our mistake!

From the manager...

Thankyou both for your review it is very detailed and thorough. We have tried our best with pitches and we are on a slight slope but all pitches appear to be level. I wonder if your level was slightly out as we have only ever had good reviews for how level pitches are. Have just checked top pitches and can't find any slope on those pitches and the pitch you were on. Kind regards Steve & Cathy
