Why stay here ...
Maudland Farm House Certificated Location is a restful site, situated on a small working farm in rural West Wales, with sheep, chickens, ducks and Cerys the pony. Children are welcome, under supervision, to collect eggs, feed the cats and count the sheep (either to encourage sleep or check that the sheep have not strayed!).
We also run our own assault course, gym, boot camps, archery courses and personal training. Our son, who lives on site, is a qualified sport masseur and lower back pain specialist.
The site is in a 0.75 acre field with 3 hardstanding, which have their own electric, water and waste water points. There is space for an awning beside each pitch. There is also space for pitches on the grass, conditions permitting. Our entrance is over 20 feet wide, with easy access off a double lane 'B' road. As we are on the top of a hill, the views are impressive, with Snowdon visible in the distance on a clear day.
The toilets and shower are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Our £12 per night includes 8kw hours of electricity, anything over will be charged at 15p per kw. Extra cars are charged at £1 per night.
We are situated very centrally for the Ceredigion coast with its many small bays; Pembrokeshire with its National Park, its many attractions and the coastal path; and Carmarthenshire with its various gardens, the Dylan Thomas attractions at Laughne and the wetlands centre for avid bird watchers. The site often has Red Kites and Buzzards overhead and the Cuckoo can be heard from 23 April until July.
The towns of New Quay, Aberaeron, Cardigan, Carmarthen, Llanelli and Swansea are all less than an hours' drive away. Although rural, there are restaurants, pubs and shops within 5 miles.
Dogs and cats are welcome, with the ususal CL rules applying.
We try to make all our visitors feel at home and all feedback and new ideas are welcome.
We look forward to meeting you when you choose to visit West Wales.

This has to be one of the better CL we have stayed at. Very friendly and helpful family, amenities are brilliant with the addition of your very own water supply!! Small play area for the children and all very safe and secure, free range eggs available to buy a little added bonus!
"Explore Wales" is the current banner for the Club's website. Well, you couldn't be in a better place. Maudland House Farm is a delightful CL with stunning views across the hills and valleys of Carmarthenshire. Paul and Sandra are exceptionally friendly, welcoming and helpful with very good knowledge of the area. We had no problem at all with the hardstanding and levelling, in our 7.3 metres cararvan. As is the case in many country areas, you do have to drive a little to places of interest but there's a huge variety on offer. In 3 days we visited the utterly sublime beach of Mwnt and walked some of the coastal path, other beaches such as Aberporth and Llangranog; Cardigan, which is an interesting town with a castle, the National Woollen Museum in the local village (10 minutes away) - well worth a visit, if only for a coffee and bara brith or Welsh cake! Also 'Sculptureheaven', an absolutely amazing sculpture garden is about a 15 minute drive and then south to Laugharne, of Dylan Thomas fame, about 40 minutes. The toilet and shower are quite compact but perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean. I would thoroughly recommend Maudland Farm House Farm. I wish I was there right now!
Certainly agree with other reviewers that the welcome is second to none and the views very good. However as also mentioned, the hardstanding area is not level and they needed to have been extended right to the tap/electric point to avoid grass and mud being brought into the van. We have a motorhome and it was not possible to use the drain system (not sure how caravan users coped as it was a length of pipe sticking up out of the ground). The drain which might have been suitable for motorhomes had not had the cover lifted for years. We don't need electricity or WC/shower and would prefer to pay less. The CL was quite handy for excursions although exiting was tricky on occasions and we only have a small van. Traffic noise was minimal. Toilet emptying was a challenge as the gravel was difficult to wheel the cassette over and then the area surrounding the emptying point becomes wet and muddy.
