 Lovely peaceful site with magnificent views. There is a friendly welcome and well kept hard pitches.

Facilities other than waste disposal were not open due to Covid. There were no tents here for that reason.

The walk to Hay is quite overgrown in places so no shorts and unsuitable for young children. When you get there, there is a pub on your left just over the bridge with a sheltered outside area. Useful fuel station towards Hay for essentials.

Chip shop open in Hay. Queue up outside. Hergest Croft Gardens is lovely.

Black Hill climb is spectacular but a nightmare of tiny lanes to get there. Stick to larger roads if possible.

 We planned to stop here over night but when we pulled in weren’t so sure as it was not obvious where the carpark finished and the campsite started!

We pulled in to a good sized gravel carpark and went in to enquire about stopping the night. Unfortunately the pitches, which were over a fence/through another field, were in need of mowing and due to the wet weather conditions unavailable to park on, however the owner very kindly said we could pitch up in the carpark so before we knew it we were staying the night.

We struggled to level the van so in the end left it and took the dogs for a walk around the nature trail that the owners have made around the site, it didn’t take very long so we walked then around again and then shut ourselves in the van for the rest of the day.

I had an idea that I would go and look around the Museum the following morning as there seemed to be a lot of old interesting stuff but to be honest I found the old dolls and set up a bit creepy so didn’t bother. There were toilet and shower facilities accessible overnight which was very handy but they looked like they could do with a little bit of TLC. There is also a café at the museum which had a couple of customers on the day we arrived but was generally a bit quiet.

I think on a sunny day we may have seen this site in a completely different light but unfortunately the weather was grey and dull, the camping field was overgrown and a little bit unloved and we left having found it all just a little bit odd.

 Stopped here for one night off the back of the previous reviews; couldn't say I agree with them.

The certified site looks nice and sheltered, however on our visit we were told to park in 'Cosy Corner' as they didn't want the grass churned up as it'd been raining. The grass was also very long in the 'proper' site so no doubt there would have been some slippage. 'Cosy Corner' sounded nice enough, until after paying, they explained this was a far from level corner of the gravel museum car park. The facilities were the museum and café facilities; these were clean enough but a little rough around the edges. There was a small field which could be used for exercising the dogs, which was handy.

Didn't go in to the museum as just found the place creepy. I usually like the small certified type sites and their little quirks, but unfortunately not this one and I certainly wouldn't return here.

 This has to be one of, if not the friendliest sites we've visited. The paddock with the 5 pitches looked beautiful but after a months rain was too soft for our unit. We were pitched on a hardstanding next to the paddock with the same extensive views and close enough to the electric hookup. The toilets, which were shared with the museum, were very clean. The campsite has exclusive use of the toilets and showers from when the cafe and museum close at 5pm to 10am. There is free WiFi in the cafe (and toilets after closing) The walks around the site are interesting as it is a hotspot for rare butterflies. Ideal site if you have a dog. Campers get a reduced rate for the museum. It is worth visiting the site just to see the museum, which is amazing, however there are loads of towns and places of interest locally. Will definitely call in again.

 Well located in the Teifi gorge, which is stunning and wild. It's easy to drive to the coast from here; we went to New Quay, and saw dolphins and the pub where Richard Burton drank with Dylan Thomas. We also went to Cardigan which is a vibrant and interesting town. The closest sizeable town is Newcastle Emlyn, a proper market town, with lots of traditional foodie shops and a romantic tumbledown castle.

The site itself is absorbing. You'll definitely want to visit the museum of childhood, to see all of the toys that you forgot were special to you as a child. There are nature walks on the site and an ancient well (not the falling down kind, it's more of a spring in a lovely tranquil grove)

The tea shop is handy if you want a simple lunch, and the folks who run the place are excellent company.

There are showers, toilets and water all next to the museum. (You share the toilets with the museum when it's open)
