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.

Quiet site with well spaced out flat pitches.10/20/2020

    Lovely quiet site, zero road noise.
    Lovely flat pitches that are well spread out, toilet block is modern and clean. A nice addition is the wet room, it allows you to get out of a sandy wetsuit without getting sand everywhere.
    Owner is a very personable guy, who went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed.

Great place to relax, clean facilities and a friendly site manager.09/29/2020

  • Liked: 

    The site was very quiet as it was away from any traffic. It was great to be able to see the stars whilst walking the dog along the lane. The site manager walked through the site each day, stopped to chat and check everything was alright with everyone. Well laid out, great facilities and an area to walk to dog if you did want to walk the lane. We pitched a tent next to the van as the weather was nice enough, although there were signs the typical Welsh weather (wet) had been a few weeks previous!

Lovely site very very clean, the owners are very nice and helpful.09/14/2020

  • Electric asphalt touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    A very small nice clean site, the pitches are all with water and electric either with grass or full gravel. The owners are very very nice and very very helpful and came out and guided us in to the site. The toilet block is kept immaculate all the time.
    Plenty of Wildlife to here and see.

    Disliked: 

    The only fault I could point out was signage to the site off the main road there was none. This could be rectified easily. All other sites had signage off the main road.
