A wonderful place to be

Glangwenlais
My first outing in my campervan since March and my first stay at a CL. It was wonderful. The valley is so peaceful. A warm and friendly welcome from Carolynne, and directions to the bins, water point and waste point, as well as pointing me in the right direction for some great walks. The weather was stunning, which no doubt helped, but I am sure even on a rainy day this site would be a lovely place to be if you are seeking wonderful views, peace and immediate access to amazing walks. There are so many options for walks directly from the farm my dog and I were spoilt for choice. It is a working farm so there was no option for my dog to be off his lead but wasn't a problem, he certainly got his exercise, as did I, on our many walks. I had no phone or internet signal from the campsite but a short walk up the nearby hill allowed me to connect to 4G. It was actually rather refreshing to be disconnected for a few days. I needed leveling blocks on the site as it is slightly sloping towards the back where most vans were positioned. I would definitely return to Glangwenlais Farm.

Heavenly retreat away from the coastal crowds

Glangwenlais
At the price of £12 July 2020 it was just the excellent value we would hope from a CL. We had a wonderful restful 5-night break For the first time away since March with all the Covid restrictions. The campsite is in a large field on the right as you enter the farm driveway with 2 main electric outlet posts (enough for 5 caravans on a CL) at the top of the field . The drinking water tap is positioned near one of the electric points halfway down the field and the waste point pipe is flush with the ground at the bottom end of the field (No need to lift tanks up as in so many places and easy to empty :) ) Rubbish is collected in 2 bins near one of the barns at the farm. Hand sanitiser is placed at all 3 locations. The farm yard itself is clean and tidy. Carolyn and her husband were very helpful and we even brought some Texel Blue and Zwartbles sheep's fleece from them for crafting. Llyn Brianne reservoir is well worth a visit and you can walk around the reservoir on a maintained service roadway from the car park. It would be possible to cycle on this if you lifted your bike over the locked vehicle gate. RSPB Gwenffrwd-dinas) which is even closer is a must to walk along the river’s edge in places and there is a lovely board walk there as well (board walk has some steps but Ok for pushchairs but not wheel chairs). For those who want to do the full circular walk it is a about 75 minutes, with an additional branch off to see the cave of Twm Siôn Cati - the Welsh Robin Hood character. The car park is small and there is an honesty box for payment for non RSPB members - £1 on the faded sign. Cwm Rhaeadr Forest – (Welsh for Valley of the Waterfall) This is even closer still just down the road. It has many walks including a ¾ mile walk accessible for wheelchairs, 2.5 mile moderate walk to a waterfall and a 6.7 Km grade rad mountain bike trail. Sadly during July the forest was closed for logging work. The beautiful rural setting with its splendid views over the countryside makes this a place we will certainly visit again!

Visiting daughter in Lampeter

Glangwenlais
Others have said this site is on a slope.  I would say it is more uneven.  This is a beautiful part of the world and the views from our van were quite stunning.  The site is very basic, hook up, toilet with no light or sink, chemical disposal and water from a standpipe. However for £9/night I am certainly not complaining. The owners were lovely, easy going and have a gorgeous well kept farm with lots of friendly chickens.  There are some wonderful walks right up into the mountains and although we didn't make it this time the pub in the near by village (walking distance) has great reviews.  We came here to visit our daughter who is at University  in Lampeter  which is half an hours drive through some lovely countryside.  We had a marvelous relaxed time, however a word of caution, the field was quite soft and marshy near the back and at times of heavy rain I imagine that it could get quite boggy but please don't let that put you off as it is a delight.

Unbelievably beautiful!

Glangwenlais

Wow, is all that I need to say,  but If you like quiet and if you like beautiful sceanery  and love the odd chicken or duck to come tapping on your door, then you are in for a real treat. Mr & Mrs Davies were so welcoming and had so much information about the area for us., there was everything we needed to chill out and relax, we had to drag ourselves away to come back home! The village is charming and the food in the village pub was unbelievably tasty and top quality. We are definitely coming back :)
