Why stay here ...

Good Life is tucked away on an idyllic 8 acre coastal smallholding located next to National Trust land, we are positioned between Nanternis & Cwmtydu near New Quay on the coast of Cardigan Bay in Ceredigion.

A footpath runs from the caravan site to the secret smuggler’s beaches and the famous Ceredigion Coastal Path, sea views, raw nature and the countryside surrounding us, all within walking distance and that's the only way you will find them, there’s not much traffic here!

None of the hustle and bustle here, this area is surrounded by a mix of sandy coves and beaches and deep and rocky inlets, grassy headlands with an abundance of rare wildflowers and stunning surrounding landscapes! You can discover the quiet local award winning beaches, the ancient woodlands with waterfalls, some amazing walks along the Ceredigion coast path, a great place to go bird watching or even dolphin spotting and see the seals. You can swim in the sea if you’re brave enough or just breathe enjoy the peace, quiet and tranquillity, wind down, chill out and have a real break from it all, this is a holiday location you’ll remember.

If you want to travel just a little further you can discover so much more if you want it. Llangrannog is the next coastal village towards Cardigan, with 2 pubs, the Pentre Arms and The Ship. If you want something more lively then New Quay where you can have a drink and eat fish and chips from The Lime Crab on the harbour pier.

A good time

First of all follow the directions from the handbook and not your sat nav we made that mistake. As for the site as it says peaceful and lovely walks on the coastal path . We walked into New Quay which took us 1 hour and 45 mins. Roger was great and organised a BBQ on our last evening for all serving up home produced sausages. Will look to return Guy and June

Well placed but difficult access

We stayed here for a week in August 2018. The site is in a beautiful area but access to the site with a large car and caravan was really not good. Directions from the main road were fine and we found the entrance with no problem but turning off of the single track lane into the narrow rutted approach track with a solid wall on the left hand side was just too tight a turn to make with our people carrier and 8 metre caravan - even taking it as wide as we could. We had to unhitch and use the motor mover to make the turn. The track is lined by a stoney bank and overhanging branches which scraped along the side of the 'van windows as we inched along it. We had a warm welcome from Mr Pead who gave us the choice of where to pitch in the pleasant paddock and gave us friendly advice on the local area. We enjoyed the local beach with the two seals who bobbed about there all day most days. It was ideal for launching our kayaks and the children enjoyed swimming too. There are lots of lovely walks from the site and it is a beautiful coastline. We were treated to several displays by the (almost) resident dolphins off the harbour wall at nearby New Quay. Most mornings on site the owners dogs would be seen wandering around the caravan field and leaving deposits behind. I resorted to picking it up to dispose of several times to avoid anyone treading in it (or our own dog being blamed for it.) In fairness to the owners, they may have been unaware as we didn't raise the issue with them. Part way through the week we were challenged by Mrs Pead (who we hadn't previously met) over the small pop-up beach gazebo we had up next to our caravan, alongside our half length awning. We use the gazebo to store the kayaks and related paraphernalia as the awning is not big enough (being half length). Mr Pead had seen the gazebo up several times prior to this during the week but Mrs Pead seemed to think we were using it as a tent to house extra people? Our caravan is a 6 berth and we are a family of 6. She did relent when I showed her the contents of the gazebo but whilst I appreciate that CL owners have to comply with C&MH rules, the way it was approached made us feel quite uncomfortable. Wifi signal was poor. It was only possible to get enough signal if you stood near the bins which were behind the owner's house through the hedge. This wasn't a major issue for us as we don't spend much time at the caravan when we are on holiday, but the site is advertised as having wifi and it may be an issue for others. Our teenagers were less happy than us! We had some heavy rain during our stay which left the approach track muddy but we had no problem getting the caravan off the pitch when we came to leave. We had to reverse the procedure of using the motor-mover to get our unit out of the track onto the lane. All in all - a lovely area which we'd like to explore more but this particular site is more suited to smaller units or motorhomes.

Just perfect

We stayed here for 2 nights Whitsun week 2018 on a tour of mid Wales and I wish we could have stayed longer. The site is very pretty with farm animals around. As there is only room for 5 motorhomes / tourers it was so quiet which was just what we needed after visiting some very busy, noisy sites that week. We had the best of welcomes from the owners, we had no problem driving our 8metre motorhome onto the site and the walks from the site down through the waterfalls to the coves are definitely worth a visit. We will definitely return.

Fantastic holiday here

Just had a fantastic week at this lovely site. Fay and Roger were most welcoming and helpful, giving us maps and information for walking in the area. We met some lovely people during our stay and saw red kites and buzzards flying around. We saw some beautiful sunsets too. We had no trouble finding this great site and had a lovely relaxing week.
