Why stay here ...

Why not stay at Glyn Abbey Golf Club with your own caravan or motorhome? You don’t have to be a golfer. You might wish to stay down to watch the racing at Ffos Las Racecourse just across the road or to enjoy the local walks, cycling, fishing or just the beauty and peace of the Gwendraeth Valley. There is a network of footpaths through the golf course, so you can enjoy the beauty of our course whether you play or not.

Pembrey Country Park and Cefn Sidan beach, both multiple award winners, are just 5 miles away. Easily reached by car or bike, these make great days out for the family. Why not visit the town of Kidwelly and it's Castle, just 4 miles away? Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales, can be reached in 20 minutes. Of course with everything available at Glyn Abbey you may just wish to stay on site! Our parkland course, with mature woodland and fabulous countryside views, is truly beautiful and you are able to walk all around it. There is also a footpath along the old mineral railway running along the bottom of the Course that stretches from Pontnewydd to Pontyates.

There are 5 pitches on the Fforest Fach site, just steps away from all the facilities of the Clubhouse, but in a quiet, secluded area surrounded by mature trees.

Fforest Fach is immediately below our 9 hole pitch and putt Course, so perfect for the family to go straight out to use this. If staying with us you can purchase anytime use of this facility for just a few pounds and rent clubs as well, so you can go back and forth as you wish without having to come to reception. Golfers will of course appreciate the 18 hole Abbey Course, designed by Dr Martin Hawtree.

There is a dedicated entrance for the caravan park, which is a very gentle slope designed specifically for caravans. The central roadway is 5 metres wide to make parking easy, and each bay is a minimum 10 metres long and 12 metres wide, half hard standing and half grass, so the largest units can be easily accommodated together with any awnings and even your car – or you could leave it in the car park just a few steps away.

Every pitch has its own electric hook up naturally, and there is a dedicated water supply and chemical disposal point. Users are welcome to use the toilet and shower facilities in the main clubhouse at any time during our normal opening hours.

Enjoy a pint of real ale in our bar or on the patio overlooking the course. Sundays are just made for our Chef Carol's spectacular carvery.

With an 18 hole golf course, a 9 hole pitch and putt course, a driving range, a fantastically well equipped gym, a bar (with free wifi) and a great restaurant all on site, there is plenty on offer for the whole family.

I note the other reviews regarding the upkeep of the site. We booked beforehand and arrived after 7pm but had no problems getting set up. We needed an overnight and this was ideal. The site was very quiet, out motorhome pitch was very level and the EHU worked without issue. Although we are sure there is more to see the trees provided excellent shelter. For us it was hassle free, tranquil and had plenty of space. It was a welcome oasis after the noise of Pembrey Motor Racing Circuit. We managed to empty the toilet but couldn't see the "drive over waste disposal" so I have removed a point.
