Beach Trips...
Mwnt Beach


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.

The 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. 


You can follow the coastal path in either direction for some impressive cliff top walks.

Here are a few pics of our favourite local trips including New Quay (year round dolphin watching), Poppit Sands for surfing and summer vibes, Aberporth, good for fishing, beach fun and fish and chips, Cwm Yr Eglwys, another hidden gem, the list goes on and we'll be glad to help you choose a spot when you're here.



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, a cinema, two 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. For rivers, we have tried going 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...



For beginners you can book sea fishing trips up the road in New Quay, or if you're more experienced, there are lots of great fishing spots near Mwnt Camping. Catches mainly feature mackerel, bass, plaice, dogfish, pollack and whiting. If you have a kayak, you can't beat a day out at sea, with your rod and a friend.

Eating out and nights out...


We can guide you to our favourite fish and chip spots, and there are plenty of great places to go for dinner nearby.

Cardigan has a vibrant live music scene and there is no shortage of pubs to suit all tastes within easy reach.
