Reviewer: Lazychu 4 reviews from this member

Just returned from a very relaxing 8 nights at this site and would have loved to stay longer. We will definitely go back. The site is run by a very relaxed and friendly couple who speak both Welsh and English, they also run an on site shop for a few hours a day selling some essentials plus they will freeze your ice blocks in a shop freezer if you ask.

One thing we weren't expecting was a kitchen area in the launderette/dishwash area. Although we didn't use it, it was very popular, especially as we had a couple of windy days. Sone people found it was too windy to cook outdoors so the hob was great for them. While we were there they installed 3 picnic benches outside so you could cook in the kitchen area and then eat outside on the picnic benches. Great for walkers or those who like to pack light.

The children didn't seem too bothered about the lack of wifi or phone signal. If you really need to get in touch with anyone, there is a payphone by the disabled toilet and a BT hotspot by the shop.

The toilets are clean but it was high season and everyone seemed to be on the beach all day so there was a little sand on the floor at times. Not too much and nothing to worry about but you might want to pack flip flops for the shower.

The children loved feeding the piglets, playing on the playground and being on Mwnt beach. You can either walk to the beach (check the map first) or drive. The car park is national trust so if you are a member you get to park for free. There are also toilets near the carpark and a little shop that sells tea, coffee, ice lollies and things for the beach. It is a fair few steps to the beach so not for those who struggle with steps but definitely worth it if you can make it. The Telegraph reckon it's one of the top ten beaches in the world.

After a slight 'detour' (look carefully at the signs for the site) down the narrow, winding roads (something we're used to, so we didn't find these a problem) we arrived at a great looking little site. We were not to be disappointed. The children were excited to be camping again and the sight of a lovely park increased the excitement. The view from the site was beautiful, especially the sunsets we witnessed.

We were greeted promptly and shown to our pitches which were spacious and clearly marked out. Our electric hook up was easily accessed and plenty of water taps around the site meant we didn't have to walk too far at all. It is an open site with no trees/hedges between pitches, but unlike some people have mentioned, I actually quite liked this as it meant we could see the park clearly while the children played. The grounds were kept lovely and tidy, with the grass maintained daily, and although there were plenty of dogs on site I did not come across any fouling at all.

The toilet block was kept lovely and clean, with free hot showers, and being a small site meant it wasn't too far to go with small children on the many toilet trips. The shop stocked basic items which was all we needed and only being open for a couple of hours in the morning and again in the evening was actually a bonus as the children couldn't keep asking to go and spend more money. Also, Tesco is only a short drive away in the lovely market town of Cardigan. We visited Aberaeron as we so often drive through this beautiful little town, and a stop off in New Quay was well worth the great chips. We had a fabulous trip to Castell Henllys - thoroughly enjoyed by all of us.

The children enjoyed having a walk down to see the pigs and goats on the site, and loved being able to play their ball games etc as there was plenty of open space available. We also had a little walk around the site and found many of the people in the static caravans extremely friendly and informative about the area and the best beaches to go to etc. Unfortunately we didn't get to check out any of these as the weather wasn't the best for a day at the beach.

The website states you can purchase wifi, but the owner did explain that it wasn't a very good one due to the location - only really ok for checking Emails etc not for downloading, so we didn't bother and this wasn't a problem for us. Some might think otherwise (namely my 14 year old son) but he just got on with it.

All in all, this is a fabulous little site. Thank you.

Beautiful! Eleri couldn't have been much more helpful. Really nice lady.

Loved our stay. Really clean and well maintained facilities. Would recommend to anyone. They had an on site shop which the kids loved as they spent their pocket money on sweets. Play area was great, well looked after and the kids had a great time on it.

Just returned from spending a fantastic, relaxing 10 stay at this wonderful location. In two minds whether to post a review, because selfishly would love to keep this wonderful place a secret, but the owners hard work deserves recognition.

From the minute we arrived (very late - no problem at all)nothing was too much trouble. Shown to our pitch, asked if we required anything, and that tomorrow would be fine to sort out any money matters !

Our electric cable was faulty and within minutes the owner had given us a new one to lend for the duration of our stay, free of charge. For a campsite to run this smoothly and efficiently obviously requires a lot of hard work, but the owners friendly and attentive attitude ensures that your stay is the best it possibly can be.

The site was busy whilst we were there, but not packed and never did we have to queue for any of the facilities, which were always so clean. Great showers, with plenty of free hot water - no fussing with tokens etc. There are great facilities for campers in a kitchen area, which has a microwave, kettle, toaster and a hob. This is open 24hrs and even has somewhere for you to sit to have a meal - great for when it was wet.

Small shop, open twice daily, sells all the essentials, does newspapers to order and stocks the best beef burgers and steak from their own farm. Sitting out, bbqing, watching a stunning sunset over the sea will be a memory I will cherish for a long time.

Blaenwaun is down a narrow raod, but more than manageable. This is an open, coastal site, so do expect a breeze from time to time. Some have commented that they would like more screening, but with having children we found that we could see them at all times, whether they we're on the play area, chasing each other around on bikes, or when they joined in what seemed a whole campsite game of cricket.

You are a 20 -25 minute walk from Mwnt beach which you can get to either on a bridle path that leaves the site (not suitable for a buggy)or by road. There is a NT carpark at the beach which was about 3 per day.

There are so many fantastic beaches within a 20 minute car journey from Blaenwaun. Poppit sands was a big favourite with us. Plenty of room, dunes and rock pools which the kids loved exploring.

Cardigan town is 4 miles or 10 minutes by car. Lovely little market town with many independent shops, interesting indoor market, and the Castle is now open after major restoration work.

A wonderful place to recharge your batteries and to get away from the stresses of life. The owners really have created something special !

Absolutely lovely site. Very well looked after with nice short grass. Very big pitches and owners are very relaxed about how you pitch. We put a gazebo up for our party of 4 tents and they didn't mind at all. Toilets were always spotless and even when the site was full you never had to wait.

Well stocked site shop and some superb steaks from the owner's own cattle. Yum!

We had some bad weather including high winds and rain and the owner had to rescue some tents while campers were out. He used his van and vehicles to block the wind and hold the tents up. He even lent one family a caravan when their tent blew down.

The park was really good for the children and was a great meeting place for them. Lots of open grass to play ball games too.

A nice walk down to the local beach at Mwnt or a short drive.

I would highly recommend this site and will be definitely going back!

Very friendly, well run campsite, with views - a little distant and with fixed caravans in foreground - of the sea at Mwnt.

All the pluses: loo block kept beautifully clean, showers had good hot water, unlimited at all times of day and night and were that nice simple push button kind that you don't have to fiddle with. Laundry/kitchen room: wonder of wonders! Campers had free use of an electric kettle, a microwave and a small fridge. Amazing what ease a cheap electric kettle brings to campers as quick alternative to boiling up on your campergaz. And the convenience of putting your milk in a fridge! Washing machines but slightly strangely nowhere to do hand laundry (I improvised when having shower). Helpful provision of leaflets, and camp owner ran a second hand book exchange in shop to raise funds for lifeboats too. Shop small but could get milk and emergency chocolate. We enjoyed the farm-produced steak and big juicy burgers.

Downside: maybe we hit a bad fortnight but this campsite (and the area I think judging by the dwarfed lopsided trees) can be seriously windy so bring extra guy ropes and peg it all in strongly. Two tents had broken poles whilst we were there. Some people moved to an open field over the road, no sea view but apparently more sheltered. Pitches? Basically the campsite is a big square field. Grass is kept well shorn but, a slight downside, it's one of those sites without trees or hedges and with tents and standing and touring caravans all in full view of each other.

Not ideal but pluses outweigh this. We were camping with a teenager but could appreciate that playground was ideal for younger children who all roamed about and could practice their social interactions and leave parents to a bit of quiet. We'd have appreciated that when we were camping with three boys a decade ago. We gather that when the weather is better, you can borrow bricks from the camp owners and can set up fires. That would have been very pleasant to sit round but weather too bad for anyone to indulge in that this year. We were really cold! Temperatures 14 to 18 degrees generally in late July/August so we were huddled in blankets by 9pm.

Campsite could get sociably noisy I could imagine but owners seem to have policy of children quieted in tents by 9pm and as their house is on the premises keep an eye/ear out and manage noise.

General area: absolutely lovely. Walk down to Mwnt beach. You can do a loop via footpath alongside right of campsite and back up the road (or drive down). Our favourite beaches: top scorer, LLancrannog absolutely perfect. Aberporth a close second with two beaches to chose from. You can reach other almost private beaches from both by walking along the coastal beaches. Saw seals (twice), dolphins (twice), swam (bring bodyboards), kayaked (first time trying out inflatable kayaks) or just walk. Two topscoring coffee places. Lovely little visitor centre/community centre at St Dogmael's Abbey (went three times) and place in Cardigan offering sour dough bread light lunches with decor in that right on drift wood arty style. (went twice) Very nice indeed. And liked Cardigan as pleasant, full of charity/junk/art gallery shops too.

NB: couldn't get mobile connection at all on site. Wifi 15 per week or pay by the day/hour but BEWARE, this is on one device only so choose carefully when you log in to set up.

Not 10/10 throughout because of slight openness of site (prefer a bit of compartmentalisation and trees to help with washing lines and bit of privacy) and the way caravans block the best views. But yes, would revisit - and gather from social laundry chats that may people return again and again.
