Why stay here ...

Our CL occupies a sheltered site on the very edge of the Preseli Mountains in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. A real treasure is the small gate from the site which opens directly on to the mountains and thousands of acres of open moorland. This is a delight for serious walkers but equally for those taking an evening stroll with the dog. Children love exploring and playing in the little streams.

The locality is rich in history. The famous burial stones of Pentre Ifan dating back to 3500 BC are 3 miles away. An equally important but smaller site is just a 400 yard walk from the site’s back gate. From here you can see in the distance, the remains of a huge hill fort and the outcrop of rocks where the Preseli blue stones were taken to form the inner circle of Stone Henge. Our children loved the lovely castle at Cilgerran (8 miles).

What to do

  • Walking – North Pembrokeshire is a mecca for walkers from the serious to the stroller. The Pembrokeshire coastal path has 195 miles of footpaths with spectacular views.
  • Beaches – There are a host of beaches to explore, from wide sandy ones at Newport (6 miles) and Poppit (9 miles) to small coves like the ones at Mwnt and Cym yr Eglywys.
  • Sailing, canoeing – It is possible to launch a sailing dingy from the harbour at Parrog (6 miles) for sailing in Newport Bay. Canoes can also use the River Teifi which is navigable from Cenarth through the Cilgerran Gorge and Cardigan Town to the estuary at Poppit Sands. Canoe hire is available.
  • Horse Riding – The Crosswell Horse agency (3 miles) is run by Carolyn Morgan who is a wonderful riding teacher for all ages and abilities. She taught all our children and is now teaching our grandchildren.
  • Fishing – Sea fishing and coarse fishing on the Rosebush reservoir (5 miles).
  • Golf – Beautiful links courses at Newport (8 miles) and Gwbert (12 miles).
  • Shopping – A convenience shop is available at the petrol station 2.4 miles away where you can also buy gas. The village of Newport (6 miles) has a range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Cardigan Town (8 miles) has a wider range of shops with a Tesco supermarket.
  • Group Bookings - We can give exclusive use of the site if you book for between 3-5 units. You can have fun and games and even a camp fire without disturbing others.

We have owned Bryncelyn for nearly forty years and, as teachers, were able to spend most school holidays here with our family. Ten years ago we moved here permanently. Our five grandchildren are now frequent visitors. It is very special to our family and we very much hope you will feel the same way about our home when you visit.

Very peaceful saty

Stayed here for 5 days in June and had a great time, thank you to Peter who was a brilliant host with a lovely site. Excellently positioned for touring West Wales with beautiful views - we shared the field with birds and bats, through the field gate lies a walking area that goes on and on forever. Lots of freedom for our little dog so she also had a magical time. What more could you want for a relaxing stay.

We have just spent 4 lovely nights here. What a great site. Peter the owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The site is beautifully kept and has fantastic access through a gate on the site, to the most wonderful peaceful walks and hills. The site is next to a main road and can be a little busy at times but it wasn't too bad and it certainly wouldn't stop me going back so don't be put off by it. Great places to cycle although you may need electric bikes as it is very hilly. Thank you Peter.

Chose this site for a short break with our dogs.Lovely welcome from Peter, the owner on arrival and a charming location. Ideal central location for many enjoyable walks in varied scenery. Adjacent to wonderful views of the Preseli hills via the gate on the site. Looking forward to a return trip very soon. Linda and Gerald

Hidden Gem

Bryncelyn
We originally booked this site for a week having never been to the area before. When we found there was just so much to see and do on our doorstep and being blessed by great weather we extended our booking for another week. Amazingly Peter had space for us. Can't understand why this CL isn't full all year-with extensive views, a friendly welcome, and access to places of interest and the coast, what's not to like? Peter was chatty and was always on hand to deal with queries and offer advice on places to visit. Hand sanitiser was freely available and there were even bins for food waste. There was plenty of space, and even a picnic bench available for each pitch so no worries about unpacking chairs etc, and there were two water points. Some pitches were slightly sloping but this was not an issue. The CL is surrounded by beautiful countryside and it was a feature of our stay to be wowed by amazing sunsets behind the hills opposite. It is easily accessed from a B road so no having to negotiate narrow lanes with caravans or motorhomes and hoping not to meet anyone coming the other way. We would highly recommend this CL and will definitely be back.
