We’ve just returned from spending 11 nights staying at Brynawelon and what an absolute gem of a site.
Warmly welcomed by Paul who showed us where everything was and then taken to the field with All Weather Pitches (AWP). We chose a pitch in the bottom corner against the hedges. It is next to the road but, to be honest, we got used to the sound of tractors and the sound of the sheep in the field opposite. There’s an electric pylon in the corner but never heard any humming.
As campers we always take an interest in the facilities on-site and have to say, at Brynawelon they’re top notch. Toilets and showers are modern and spotlessly clean. We particularly liked the two cubicles with showers which were, in effect, like having facilities all to oneself. Each has a sink, a shower cubicle and toilet. Indeed, given the site was quiet during our stay, we had them all to ourselves every morning. Marvellous.
The utility room is probably the most comprehensive we’ve come across. Three sinks, one larder fridge, one larder freezer and one fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, small oven, microwave, iron and ironing board. All free of charge. What a joy for campers. There are also washing and dryer facilities at a reasonable charge. Last but not least, a free to use clothes spinner; a boon for soaked walking gear or towels.
Co-owner Liz was also really nice. Always interested in how we’re enjoying the stay and what we’d been up to. We really enjoyed our chats.
The site is five minutes’ drive to the A487 at Sarnau. Turning right there’s a well-stocked Londis store in Brynhoffnant. Turn left and there’s a farm shop outside of Sarnau and each petrol station on the way to Cardigan has a mini-mart attached. There’s a Tesco and Aldi on the outskirts of Cardigan and a Co-op in Cardigan itself. Note that the cheapest fuel prices we saw en-route to Cardigan were two filling stations at Penparc. Both were 3p per diesel litre cheaper than Tesco in Cardigan.
We could have stayed on and on quite happily at Brynawelon but unfortunately, holidays do have to come to an end. We both take away very fond memories of Brynawelon as we enjoyed our stay immensely. The site is a credit to both Paul and Liz. Thanks both.
Having already stayed at this site twice before, we were due to go camping over Easter with a group of friends and suggested this site because we had already had two excellent holidays here.
Overall, the site is very impressive. The ground is level and there are all weather pitches available with an ample supply of electric hook up's. The toilet blocks are clean, well equipped, and very nicely maintained. And the showers are free! Plus there is also a separate large disabled/family toilet/shower room, also maintained to the same high standards.
The dishwashing area is housed within a really well equipped log cabin, so no standing out in cold draughts to do the dreaded washing up. Two sinks, both with plenty of running hot water, a microwave, two kettles, a toaster, a mini oven, fridge and freezer are all available for use free of charge, plus there is a washing machine and tumble dryer (pay per use) and also a spin dryer.
The list of facilities goes on. An outdoor play area which all of the kids on the site seem to love (our own daughter included), and for when the typical British weather kicks in, there is also an indoor playroom with a TV, books etc. And for the grown up's, there is even a sauna on site.
The owners are really friendly and always happy to help. This is a family run site and it is totally obvious that they care greatly about giving holiday makers the best experience possible. Nothing is too much trouble. The reception area has a good array of leaflets promoting local attractions and giving some really good ideas of places to visit during your stay.
There are plenty of lovely beaches and towns to visit, all only a short drive away. There's a local store a couple of miles up the road, and a large Tesco about 9 miles away, so all really convenient.
All of this and very reasonably priced too. Roll on the summer and our next visit to this great site. Top marks all round from us.
Just returned from 3 night easter break and had a fab time, first time out with our new Trailer Tent! Owners very welcoming and regularly walked round the site to make sure everyone was ok. Very clean facilities, well maintained.
Really well kitted out kitchen, all free to use. You do need to pay for the laundry facilities (as normal), although there is a spin dryer which is free to use for really wet clothes.
Games room has tv, table football and a couple of other games plus a decent book collection that you can borrow from or take (donate to honesty box), or donate/swap your own unwanted books.
Site has wi-fi which I think was £3 a day, can't comment on how good it was as we didn't need it.
Kids enjoyed the playground immensely which was handy when we were getting stressed trying to pack everything away! Spoilt for choice for nearby beaches, Tresaith, Aberporth, Aberaeron (go there for the honey ice cream). We also met up with family for Sunday Lunch and can definitely recommend The Ferry Inn at St Dogmaels, it's about a 12 mile drive from the campsite but well worth it (dogs and muddy boots welcome says the sign outside).
Will definitely return one day, maybe next Easter for more free sweets off the owners!
Just returned from a 6 night stay. Greeting by owners who were friendly. Shown to large size pitch which was on gravel. This was the first time we had used such pitch and found it comfortable enough with ground sheets.
Great facilities with games room which has TV and other games. Washing up area with 2 sinks, free use of microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge/freezer's which were very useful.
Separates men's and woman's toilets and shower block which is kept clean and tidy.
3 toilets and 3 showers in men's and same for woman's. Also there is a family shower/toilet room with disabled access, walk-in-shower and drop down toilet rails. Only criticism I have with the toilet block is that the frosted windows don't provide enough privacy and feel that curtains/blinds may have helped.
The site is in the country and as you would expect you hear the local animals near by especially cows in the mornings. We once heard the cockerel however, this was very distant.
One recommendation, is to make sure you have fully sewn in ground sheets as we and other campers had a run in with local rodents which was not at all pleasant.
This was our first stay ay Brynawelon and certainly won't be our last. We received a warm welcome on our arrival from the Park Owners Liz and Paul who provided us with a quick tour of the superb facilities at the park. These included family/disabled shower room, games room, reception area complete with comprehensive tourist information and maps of the area, kitchen area which provided free use of toaster, kettle and microwave. There was a washing machine, tumble drier which were reasonably priced. Beautifully clean bathroom facilities, park for the children (my children aged 12 and 5 both were always on it!) and huge pitches!
The site was clean and very well maintained.
The children had a wonderful time, as did our dog who was made very welcome. An area was provided for doggy toileting and the local beaches, especially poppit sands were fabulous for tiring him out. And the children!
Large supermarket near Cardigan and local farm shop a few minutes drive away. Great army surplus store too!
We would recommend a visit to Cwmtydu (although the lanes aren't for the faint hearted! ) which is beautiful. Llangranog is lovely too, the chip shop was rather nice!
Thanks Liz and Paul, we will definitely be back next year!
The owner was very helpful and friendly on arrival. We booked this site because of the family shower room and were very impressed with the immaculate toilet facilities. The night we stayed had torrential rain and so the kitchen was brilliant as it meant we could heat our baby's milk in the microwave and make coffee in the morning with the kettle as it was impossible for us to put up our gas cooker! Allocated pitches which are well spaced. The simple playground kept our 2 and 5 year old entertained whilst putting up the tent. We will return if in the area again for the clean and well equipped kitchen and toilet facilities.
