You won't run out of interesting things to do around here...
This has to be at the top of the list of activities. You can walk down from the campsite to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. The beach is visited by dolphins most days in the summer. It’s literally the reason we moved here and decided to offer camping.
It’s perfect for swimming, there are shallow areas for kids to paddle and there’s a national trust kiosk for ice creams, snacks, coffees and the loos.
You can follow the coastal path in either direction for some impressive cliff top walks.
You could see dolphins at Mwnt Beach...
The more adventurous can kayak or paddleboard out to get an even closer look at the dolphins. It's really a special moment at the beach when the dolphins appear in the bay, which happens most days in the summer.
More Great Local Trips:
An off the beaten track sandy beach with caves and a great cafe for ice creams and more, lots of space to explore, especially at low tide. Popular with sunbathers and for picnics.
A beautiful sandy beach with rockpools, popular with surfers and beach bums. Very good ice creams and food available at the outlet next to the car park.
Not to be confused with Newquay in Cornwall, this stunningly scenic coastal resort is a mecca for fish and chip lovers, as well as being home to dolphins all year around. While you can often spot them from the beach and harbour, this is the place to take a dolphin watching boat trip if you want to get even closer (book in advance as it gets popular).
Just three miles from the campsite is the county town of Cardigan. With a traditional collection of shops in the historic town centre, there are also two supermarkets, a castle, great pubs, dining options of all kinds, theaters and scenic riverside walks.
St Dogmaels Abbey
Even if you’re not the sort of person who generally likes old ruins, it’s hard not to like this one. Just have a wander around, you’ll soon find yourself wondering what it was like to be there back in those days. The cafe is also a lovely spot for a coffee, cake or light lunch. Check out the duckpond and mill next door, where you can purchase artisan bread and flour.
Whether you are a total beginner or experienced enough to go it alone, there are some great options for kayaking trips nearby, including places that provide all the gear and guided tours. We have only tried going solo from Llechryd to Poppit Sands, and it was manageable for total beginners, with some shallow areas for paddling, lots of fish to spot and the exciting views as you pass through Cardigan town and down to the mouth of the estuary towards the sea.
Yes you can surf here, we do, and we can give you the low down on most of the spots in the area. There are often small waves in the summer, ideal for learners, while bigger swells typically arrive from September onwards.
There are loads of great walks here, from the coast path to riversides and waterfalls to hill walking in the Preselis. We'll tell you some of our favourites to get you started when you're here...
