This site has no faults at all. We came here because of the lovely reviews that we'd read and we were definitely not disappointed. The site has a very friendly feel to it, very personal, and we feel that this tone is set by the owners Bev and Dave.

All the families camping there were friendly, relaxed and mixed with each other. Our children immediately went off to play, especially in the afternoon or on an evening after all the families had come back from a day out. As soon as we got back the kids headed off out to find each other. Also all the families looked out for one another. We've never been to a site quite like it - really made our holiday.

The family led activities provided by the owners on designated days were another plus. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, such as cleaning the toilet blocks around you. I could go on but needless to say we will be returning.

If you want to relax in beautiful countryside and like to mix with fellow campers then this is the site for you.

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 spent two days at dolbryns medieval weekend and had the most wonderful time. Haven't been camping for about thirty years, so was quite apprehensive. Needn't have worried!the facilities are excellent, toilets spotlessly clean water for whatever the use(pot washing or showering etc always HOT)Our hosts Dave and Bev give 110% and work so hard, but are always ready for a chat and nothing seems too much trouble. Oh, and their small bar, called The Old Barn is a delight. A hub of social activity in the evening. Anyway we will definitely be returning.

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!

Can reiterate the phrase hidden gem, having been here a few times I can say we always have a brilliant time.

Hidden away in rural Wales this site is just idyllic, Dave and Bev are two of the nicest people and nothing is too much trouble for them.

The site itself is open and spacious with two separate fields one for families and one for those who prefer a quieter life. The facilities are always immaculate and the little bar is just a perfect way to end the day.

Bev does daily feeding of the animals with the children and is conscious of making sure everyone is involved, they also run various activities for the children while we were there they included raft making and floating on the fishing lake, a teddy bears picnic, quiz night and bingo.

Some lovely places to go and see while you're there we recommend Caws cheese umm delicious, Mwnt and Cenarth falls, but to be honest chilling out and letting the kids be children building dens, dams and exploring is the best holiday.

Newcastle Emlyn town has all you need regarding shops and eateries and only 2 mins drive down the road.
