Why stay here ...

Here at Rhydhalen we are extremely lucky to be in a very convenient location, from which to access all that this lovely area has to offer. It is only a very short walk to the village which has a well stocked grocery store, a pub which also serves food, and a lovely little shop that sells homemade cakes and savouries, fruit & veg. etc along with daily papers and more. There is also a bus service passing through the village, and during the main summer season we also have the "Cardi Bach" which is a small bus which picks up and drops off, at smaller locations along the coast, and is much appreciated by walkers who may wish to walk a section of the coastal path, and then return by bus.

New Quay is only about 2 miles away, and with its blue flag beach, small fishing fleet and pleasure boats, it is often referred to as the "jewel in the crown" of beautiful West Wales. From the pier it is often possible to see the bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoise and seals which all reside in Cardigan Bay. There are also a number of other lovely beaches and bays to visit along this Marine Heritage Coastline, and also many small towns to explore. The nearest of these is Aberaeron which is approximately 8 miles away. It is a stunning Georgian Town with brightly coloured houses and shops, and a pretty harbour, it is always popular with locals and visitors alike. Should you visit, I recommend you try a honey ice cream from the Hive on the Quay - delicious.

The National Trust property "Llanechaeron" is just a few miles inland from Aberaeron and is well worth a visit.

Throughout the year the area hosts a number of diverse festivals, and agricultural shows, which are always very popular; and for those we enjoy the Theatre, we have 2 excellent venues, one in Cardigan and the other in Aberystwyth. They both have a full programme throughout the year.

Also available at Rhydhalen, Static Caravan (regret no children under 12 yrs.) and small Holiday Cottage at our other farm, also in the village of Cross Inn. Please enquire.

You will always receive a warm welcome from the Rees family here at Rhydalen, and we have the pleasure of seeing many people return year after year.

Dogs welcome but a maximum of 3 dogs per unit only please.

Easy access and very handy for New Quay

Access is easy. Good A road to Cross Inn village then 300 yards down minor road which (unlike most in the area) is 2-vehicle width most of its length to the CL entrance. CL access gate is angled so that even the largest outfits can drive straight in. Mrs Rees is very welcoming and came to speak several times telling us about good walks in the area. Cross Inn has a couple of well stocked general stores and being an A road has a bus service. The pub is at the crossroads only 300 yards away, the nearest shop just yards further. For walkers there is a network of minor roads starting from the CL and several public footpaths nearby though most head for the coast and the excellent Welsh coastal path. We booked mid-September for a mid-October stay. At the time of booking Mrs Rees said that sometimes she has to close during October because the ground is too wet. There had been two other bookings for when we were there but both cancelled, so we had the CL to ourselves. Mrs Rees decided to close the day we left. We had a lot of rain overnight one night. Pitch 2 was squelchy throughout our stay. We chose pitch 5 furthest from the gate and had no problems at all. It’s a very peaceful site. It was the hedge cutting period and the only noise we had was from a contractor cutting the hedges near the CL. He’d actually started on the hedge next to the CL before we’d arrived, but Mrs Rees had stopped him and sent him away because she didn’t want bits of wood all over the CL. She then collected the wood that had landed in the CL. This is a sheltered CL which means no sea views. It can be windy in this part of the world in October which is why we chose this one. It was our first visit to New Quay. What a charming place. We visited it three times during our stay. Unlike most seaside towns which close down after the summer holiday this was busy even mid-October. There are several carparks. Some charge a day-rate, others per hour. There is limited street parking. We were able to street park on two visits. We saw harbour porpoise during our first visit, seal on our second and dolphins on our third. Aberaeron is well work a visit as is Llangrannog.

A Wonderful CL and Warm Welsh Welcome

Booking this CL was easy by email, prompt replies and booking confirmation emailed. The CL is a level grass field with easy access. Plenty of space and views of the horses in the field. Facilities very good, clean and tidy, toilet available in the farm yard if required, also small information hut. Warm welcome from Gill who is around most days for a chat. Wildlife a plenty saw Red Kites, Buzzards, rabbits and bats in the evening. The lanes are fairly quiet and ok for dog walks. The village is a short, easy 5 minute walk away, dog friendly pub, and a couple of shops and bus stops. New Quay is lovely and we had sightings Dolphins in the harbour. ☺ We visited Bwlch Nant Yr Arian visitor centre to see the Red Kites being fed, wonderful. Can recommend a visit to the Welsh Wildlife Centre near Cardigan and NT Llanerchaeron. Also try The Moody Cow Farm Shop on the way to Aberaeron. This a lovely CL, one we hope to return to as still lots left to do.
