Nantgwynfaen is an organic working farm that provides facilities for campers, tourers, glampers and motorhomes. Located within the small village of Croeslan it is centrally located for visiting Llandysul, Carmarthen and Cardigan.
There are only 5 camping pitches at Nantgwynfaen. When does a handful of pitches become a campsite? Each unique camping pitch set is in its own private space, there are no sprawling camping fields here. It is a quiet family-friendly site ideal for families and couples who just love the great outdoors. BBQs and campfires are permitted and dogs are welcome. It is a campsite for the discerning camper who likes things nice and simple. There is no electric hook up, but there is free hot water and a flushing toilet.
Sun Of A Pitch (max 4) - Camp on a grassy hilltop with views over a wild meadow and the valley beyond. An ideal place to enjoy a campfire at sunset overlooking a dramatic steep valley with a stream at the bottom which is lined with ancient trees. A place to be in the moment, to watch buzzards gliding along the treetops at eye-level, breathe the fresh air, whilst savouring the view which drops away to the River Teifi and the hills in the distance. A very peaceful pitch, with fantastic views suitable for a medium-size tent or two small tents –a long pitch stretching along a sheltered hedge line, which is 4.5m wide with no camping neighbours within view. West-facing to make the most of the evening sunset at its best, and sheltered from the morning sun. Note, there is a steep slope adjacent to the pitch. Located 100m from the toilet and shower block. There is car parking nearby and walks in all directions. Approximate dimensions: 5x15m.
Pitch Perfect (max 4) - Just off a quiet farm track, tucked into the bank on two sides, perfect for enjoying the morning sun, with easy access to the toilets, suitable for a small caravan, small motor home, camper van or small tent with the convenience of parking on a hard standing next to the pitch. Also suitable for a medium-sized tent stretching across the hardstanding and grass. There is a fire bowl and lovely views of the meadow in front, a grassy field to the side and larger trees which are teeming with birds beyond. This pitch is unsuitable for campervans longer than 5m and large caravans as there is a sloped yard on the approach. Please contact us if you would like to discuss other options.
