The term 'hidden gem' is often used, but I can say without question this is a hidden gem.

It is situated about 2 miles outside Newcastle Emlyn, access road is a bit narrow in places, but when you get there you will not be disappointed.

There are 3 fields with pitches, 2 of which have electrical hook ups. Mainly grass pitches, but my heavy Motorhome had no problems getting on or off.

Spectacular views across the welsh hills. Lovely walks in and around site. Dog friendly.

The toilet blocks are good and spotlessly clean with abundant hot water.

Within easy reach of several beautiful sandy beaches.

Well worth a visit, recommended.

What a lovely camp site. We really enjoyed our weekend here. It was the medieval weekend with lots of activities for all ages, from long bow to knight school. My children enjoyed flag painting and the bbq train! Birds of prey were also lovely to see and were able to stroke some of the owl's.

The campsite animals are a pleasure to see and feed, we were greeted every morning by the cat also. All the toilets and showers were excellent and always clean and tidy.

(We didn't leave the site so I can't comment on surrounding areas)

We loved the barn bar in the evenings and a nice walk to see the vineyard and pond. Its a lovely site and will be visiting again over the summer holidays hopefully.

Thanks for a fantastic weekend! :)

Just returned from a fantastic family weekend at Dolbryn with our 3 children & 2 grandchildren in a mix of caravan, motor home and tents. The owner, Dave, was so friendly & helpful & let us have the pick of pitches in The Pines field. We had 4 units in total and he ensured we were all together, each pitch was huge! We were next to the park which was ideal for us with our 2 grandsons aged 7 & 10. The park is also home to chickens, rabbits and guinea pigs and Dave would feed them every morning at 9 with a group of children helping out! The site is absolutely beautiful, with lovely hidden walks and secret hideaways. There is a fishing lake which we spent a good few hours at, we didn't bring any equipment but we could hire them for 2 a day. We caught 10 fish between us, the kids thought the fishing was brilliant! We also visited the Mountain View field where we played football and cricket and flew some kites. There are also a few friendly pigs and a goat near this field. The bar, which is in the old barn, was great, very quirky and so cheap (2. 40 for 2 glasses of decent wine!), it's really not worth taking your own, bar is only open Friday & Saturday out of season though. The showers & toilets are immaculate and seemed to be cleaned several times a day. The showers are hot and powerful too. There is a 'teen room' with table football and a small pool table. Children are allowed in the bar and it is stocked with books and board games. On the Saturday, Dave invited the guests to the bar area where he was having a bbq for his mother's birthday, unfortunately we had already booked a meal at The Bunch of Grapes in Newcastle Emlyn (worth a visit, the food is very good) but on returning we visited the bar for a drink and really enjoyed. We loved it so much we stayed an extra day and will definitely return!

A lovely quiet family campsite in a beautiful part of the country, no road noise or light pollution. The owners, Bev and Dave, are nice and relaxed and made us feel welcome and comfortable.

The old stone farm buildings have been nicely converted to house the toilets/showers etc which makes a pleasant change from the usual concrete blocks. There is a separate and spacious 'family room' containing a toilet, changing table and shower to make life a bit easier. Depending on the pitch you have, you could be some distance from the toilet block, which is at the bottom of the site, so worth considering if you have small ones. The pitches themselves were nice, very little slope and not too rocky and very reasonably priced.

There is a good playground and plenty of space to run around, kick balls etc. , woods and streams to explore and the various farm and domestic animals were definitely a big hit with the kids, unfortunately I didn't take my fishing gear so we didn't try out the on site fishing (but will do next time).

Newcastle Emlyn should have everything you need to keep you going and there are plenty of coastal, river and woodland walks, beaches and castles nearby. If the weather does turn awful, Tenby's Folly Farm, Bluestone and Swansea's LC2 are only just over an hour away or if you just fancy some thrills, Oakwood is under an hour's drive.

We booked a return visit before we left and I have recccomended the site to a few friends

What a Wonderful Campsite - On arrival we were greeted by the owner and made to feel more than welcome. He showed us all what we needed to know, had our kitchen box ready and had even sorted the heating in the Pod so it was warm for us. The other owner come along a little later to introduce herself and to make sure everything was fine. The pod was clean, comfortable and warm. The Toilet/wash/shower rooms were well stocked and clean too. Everything was easy to find and not a hike to get to. Everyone was very welcoming and the Bar was a delight. We have already planned to go back in the spring and then back again in the summer with our 8 year old little girl as there is so much for kids too.

Lovely site with a ton of things to do. For. Little ones. Loved the pond and surrounding walks. The craft club on Saturdays was fab too. The owners are super helpful and gave me cream for a wasp sting my boy got, and a lollipop. The bar is sweet and very welcoming even with kids. Facilities good especially the family shower room. Short car ride to most beaches on the spectacular Welsh coast. Newcastle Ellyn has lots of shops and cafes and the castle ruin is well worth a visit. One tiny issue is that the campsite playback doesn't open until 9am (ish) which can be a problem if your kids wake up full of beans at 8am. Other than that the place is fantastic and definitely worth a visit.
