General

  • Wildlife haven and birdwatching site 12 miles from Aberystwyth
  • Watch the resident red kites at feeding time each day
  • Friendly owners, free wifi and modern clean amenities

Ever been to the Aeron Valley near Aberystwyth? It's really rather lush – so much so that local lyricist Dylan Thomas named his daughter Aeronwy after the river here (what a poetic parent).

The valley is also a birdwatching haven that amateur ornithologists scramble to, although you won't have to stir far from your pitch or static to see local flyers if you stay at small family-run Aeron View Camping… the park has its own resident red kites which swoop down at feeding time every day. (Yes, of course you should bring the means to take pics.)

Owners Nick and Dina took over Aeron View Camping in 2015 and have given it a full facelift as well as adding lots of little extras all around, like an honesty box for the launderette and showers instead of coin operation, a dedicated dog walking area (with free biodegradable bags available at reception to pick up any canine deposits), a small shop open daily, and free wifi access throughout. A communal campers' fridge is in the laundry room.

The newly renovated shower and loo block has a new hot water system and family and disabled-friendly facilities; Nick and Dina have also added a new reception, site furniture and two large pre-erected gazebos for use on rainy days. The site is licensed to sell beer, wine and spirits.

Dogs are very welcome at Aeron View Camping, but please keep them on leads apart from when in the dog walk area.

Please note

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

Local attractions

What lovely land this is… in a river valley close to the coast and full of options for walks, wildlife and birdwatching, coarse and game fishing and heaps of Welsh history…

If you're here for nature, start off at Cors Caron, a nearby reserve on 2000 acres of bog built up from thousands of years' worth of peat layers. It's well known for its wildlife, especially winter migrating birds, grassland birds and adders, and otters around the River Teifi, which runs at various points in and around the reserve.

For walks (and cycling, canoeing and more birdwatching), the valley landscape of the Strata Florida is about eight miles away – we recommend seeing abbey ruins too. Nick and Dina can also give details of the popular walks organised by their local guide.

Welsh history? Four miles to Aeron View Camping's south-west lies the thirteenth century market town of Tregaron and home of the Welsh Gold Centre (if you're around in summer, get into town for the Tregaron 'Trotian' event – horse trotting and carriage racing). The Dolaucothi Gold Mines, first delved into by the Romans, are within 15 miles.

Finally, make time for at least a day in excellent Aberystwyth 12 miles to the north west from Aeron View, for at least one trip on the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway to the top of Constitution Hill for a fab vista of Cardigan Bay.

Time must also be made for looks around the Aberystwyth Arts Centre and the National Library of Wales, and for another steam-based trip on the Vale of Rheidol Railway to the waterfalls of Devils Bridge.

Must see

  • Llanerchaeron - National Trust (15.9 kilometres)
  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (17.8 kilometres)
  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines - National Trust (24.0 kilometres)
