General

  • Family-run farm half a mile from Devil's Bridge Falls
  • Wildlife haven a 20-minute drive from Aberystwyth
  • Peaceful garden and a site shop; bistro takeaway within a mile

What a busy time can be had in the gorge little corner of Ceredigion that houses Erwbarfe Farm Caravan Park – it’s bursting with attractions in all directions, including the famed waterfalls of Devil’s Bridge Falls half a mile away, the stupendous coastline of Cardigan Bay within 12 miles, and the upland wilderness of the Cambrian Mountains and their top peak Plynlimon.

Then there’s the fishing, horse riding, red kite spotting, mountain biking and mining history to plunge into too – it’s not surprising that guests have been returning to this family-run farm for over 40 years…

As might be expected among all this, the views and facilities of Erwbarfe Farm will make hearts leap too… pitch up here for scenic sights in all directions, loads of room ready for play, and a peaceful park garden for picnics and nodding dreamily over a novel.

Amenities are well-kept and include two blocks (one with toilets and the other with toilets and showers), a launderette and water taps flowing fresh Welsh mountain water sourced above the farm.

Source groceries, ice cream, Calor gas and other essentials in the site shop; other bits and bobs for sale as well as a bistro with takeaway are within a mile, and there are plenty of local pubs serving food (the park noticeboard has info on and menus of local eateries). A rich selection of restaurants is at Aberystwyth, 20 minutes’ drive away – or land your own catch with a sea fishing trip along the coast.

  • Liked: 

    It is a clean, well kept friendly site with free showers. It's quiet and dog friendly with probably the best shower and toilet block I've seen on a campsite. The owner and spouse were super helpful.

    Disliked: 

    The piped music in the showers gets a bit monotonous after a while and the showers although fine for me have no temperature control which might be an issue if you have small children. Not a big deal.

Lovely site but more suitable for caravans than tents08/30/2019

  • Liked: 

    The tent pitch was lovely and had lovely views. The toilet/shower block and washing up area was clean and well maintained. The owner was very friendly and you could tell she cared about everyone.

    Disliked: 

    The tent pitch area was quite small so did feel a little cramped and like we were encroaching on other people's space. The showers had no temperature control and the pressure coming out of the shower wasn't brilliant. The music played in the toilet/shower blocks, was a bit loud and sounded like something that would normally be played in a church for a funeral! In the ladies toilets, there were no sanitary bins for sanitary items, just a communal bin by the sinks/hand dryers which I don't really find very hygenic

From the manager...

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave your comments. Really kind of you to mention about us as we do try and make sure everyone is happy! Sorry about the temperature control in the toilets - it is set at a recommended level and kept at that for ease of maintenance really.

Also sorry that you didn't like the music in the toilets - it is my husband's local male voice choir to be honest, singing both traditional and modern songs in Welsh and English. We decided on that as it's a part of our heritage and hoped our customers might appreciate a bit of local culture instead of pop songs playing.
Hope we might see you again though x

Local attractions

Fisherfolk from all over the country use Erwbarfe Farm as a base for some of the best casting off in west Wales: the nearby Rheidol and Ystwyth rivers yield salmon and trout, while rainbow and brown trout can be landed in the local lakes.

If you’ve never dabbled in the art, ask the farm staff for a meet with their almost-resident fishing instructor David, who can give fly fishing lessons and advice on site, and/or pick up a free copy of the site’s Angling in the Heart of Pumlumon booklet in reception.

The reception information point on site has brochures and leaflets on all the other things to see and do locally: you'd have to read rapid-ly to get through them all, but should certainly include the fab falls of Devil’s Bridge, where visitors including Will Wordsworth have flowed to for many a year.

Numerous beaches including New Quay, Borth and Ynys Las (plus dunes) are within easy driving distance of Erwbarfe Farm, as is stunning Cardigan Bay 12 miles away and its award-winning beaches, walks on the Ceredigion Coast Path, smuggling the family into caves, and – with luck – spying the UK’s biggest pod of dolphins.

Must see

  • Vale of Rheidol Railway (Aberystwyth) (16.5 kilometres)
  • MOMA Wales - Y Tabernacl (22.6 kilometres)
  • Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway (27.4 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Dolaucothi Gold Mines (39.0 kilometres)
