Why stay here ...

Our CL sits on a plateau at the eastern end of the magical Preseli Hills which lie in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The area was part of the Celtic Rainforest – a temperate rainforest and subset of the West Atlantic woodlands.

The gently sloping site experiences fabulous sunrises, sunsets and rainbows. On a migratory route for birds heading north in spring, south in autumn, Artic and northern European birds overwinter here. Watch starling murmurations and Red Kite hunting above. Lapwings, starlings and snipe feed in the forest garden and sedge warblers trill from the reeds around the wild pond. Stroll through the field and round the pond. Remember, this is a wild landscape where the ground is uneven and, often, boggy.

Terraced hard-standing with EHU. Ideally placed for exploring magnificent blue flag beaches and the coastal path. Otherwise, relax, pull up a comfy chair, lie back and watch the open skies and wildlife.

Crymych (0.9 mile) has a petrol station, general store and bakery, butcher, café, chemist, health food store and gift/book shops. The farmers’ cooperative and CK’s supermarket sell gas.

Narberth provides independent shops, cafes, galleries and an excellent antique/collectibles centre.
Newport (A487) for crafts, cafes and restaurants. Cardigan (9 miles) has many independent shops, cafes, crafts and galleries with Tesco and Aldi outside town.

What to do:

  • Beaches: Enjoy wide, sandy beaches like Newgale, Newport and Poppit. Explore many fascinating small coves such as Ceibwr, Mwnt, Gwbert and Cym yr Eglywys.
  • Walking: Breath-taking views from the 195 mile-long Pembrokeshire coastal path. The Preseli Hills are scattered with historic burial sites, such as the remarkable Pentre Ifan, which dates back to 3500 BC. Hike past standing stones, remains of a large hill fort and the rock outcrop from where Preseli blue stones were removed to form part of Stone Henge.
  • Cycling: Off-road over bridleways, forest tracks and trails. Try the Celtic Trail West and Lon Teifi Trail. Follow the coastline for spectacular vistas and wild landscapes.
  • Fishing: Pembrokeshire is famous for bass fishing. Mackerel fishing trips from Tenby, Saundersfoot, Dale or St David’s. There are still water and coarse fisheries throughout Pembrokeshire. Game fishing mostly on the Teifi, Eastern and Western Cleddau rivers. Most angling clubs have visitor day permits.
  • Golf: Newport links (13.2 miles). Gwbert Cardigan Gold Club (13.4 miles).
  • Sailing, canoeing: Sailing is concentrated around Milford Haven. You may launch dinghies at Newport Parrog to enjoy Newport Bay. Canoe along the Teifi from Cenarth, through Cilgerran Gorge, past Cardigan to Poppit Sands.
  • Horse Riding: Pony trek in the Preseli Hills over moorland, past craggy rocks, stone circles and wild ponies.
  • Castles: Local favourite, Cilgerran, overlooks Cilgerran Gorge – where the meandering Teifi opens through the nature reserve towards Cardigan castle.

a fascinating and developing site

Willow Garden at Llysaeron
We stayed here for three nights in order to visit some of north Pembrokeshire. This is the first year this site has been open, so dont expect a pristine site. Robert and Jacqui are very welcoming and have lots of ideas about how they want to develop the site. The field is sloping with flat hard standing pitches cut into the grass. We did not need levelling blocks. All the facilities are new and very clean - water tap, loo disposal, recycling. Rob & Jacqui are currently in the process of adding water to each pitch (grey water into the hedge). The views over the hills are wonderful. There is a little road noise during the day, but that disappears in the evening and is absolutely quiet at night. The prevailing sound is that of the birds. The site is surrounded by a willow hedge, and exploring the adjacent willow copse will bring you to the lake! The site is easy to find and the local village of Crymych will supply your everyday needs. The village fuel station was the cheapest we saw all holiday!! There is a lot to do in the area; we liked Fishguard lower town, St Dogmaels ruined abbey and flour mill (lots of different flours and breads to buy) and Cardigan. We would return to this site if in the area.

A peaceful stay in the Welsh Countryside

Willow Garden at Llysaeron
A gem of a site with lovely views of the Preseli Hills. We were given a warm welcome by Rob and Jacqui and were delighted by the stunning sunsets. That and the evening birdsong made for a memorable stay. We will definitely be back !
