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.

Hidden Gem

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.

Perfection so highly recommend

Totally agree with other reviews, five stars all the way. Particularly appreciated Peter's local knowledge. One example being his helpfulness in finding a great kayaking location, even provided a printed map. One Step Beyond - well done.

A piece of heaven in North Pembrokeshire

From booking to on site trouble free. Welcomed by Peter and made to feel at home this site is truly a piece of heaven with view of the Preseli hills and direct access to thousands of acres of National parkland and the hills. Benches are provide for each pitch and 10 Amp supply, along with water and a clean chemical disposal point makes for the ideal set-up. Even thought we had exception rainfall the site remained well drained and mud free. Looking forward to our next visit.

Welcoming and beautifully located site

Peter was a warm and welcoming host who has clearly put some thought and effort into the set up of the site. Water points are clean, well maintained and easily accessed with hand gel dispensers on each tap. The chemical disposal point is easily accessed with cleaning wipes, fresh water and hand gel available. Easily marked and located recycling. We loved our stay and would not hesitate to return. We enjoy peace and tranquility which this site gives. By exiting through the back gate you have direct access to the Preseli hills which provide breathtaking views and miles of walking. Don’t forget to look up at the night sky! Easy road access and within driving distance of the coast and its hosts of attractions. Thanks Peter and we look forward to our return.
