Awel yr Awen Campsite
A secluded eco campsite, a short distance from the coast, near the Cambrian Mountains and the beautiful beaches of Cardigan Bay.
About: Set in 72 acres of organic meadow and woodland, on a beautiful and hidden estate in the Aeron valley, Awel yr Awen Campsite is a brand new eco retreat, for all those looking to relax and unwind in the beauty of nature. With just five pitches, well away from roads and towns, it's an oasis of peace and quiet.
Each pitch has its own campfire for evenings spent stargazing and relaxing after a day at the beach, walking the coastal path or visiting one of the many beautiful places in Ceredigion. The five spacious pitches are spread out in an historic meadow, which is soon to be re-wilded to become more of a natural woodland. Red kites, buzzards, swallows, herons and a host of other birds are regular visitors. Foxes, owls and badgers can also be spotted at night.
Bring your own tent(s) or stay in our luxury bell-tent where mattresses and bedding are provided. All pitches have their own private eco-toilet.
The camping field is a car-free zone once you have finished unloading, with parking available in the nearby farmyard.
Awel yr Awen means ‘breeze of the muse’; in the 1940s, poet Dylan Thomas lived at Gelly, the farm where Awel yr Awen is situated. Locals remember how he used to sit under the great western red cedar near the house, drinking a mug of fresh milk straight from the milking parlour, every morning.
Owned by Rolanda and her family since 1980, the house is a family home and a refuge for all who care to visit.
Worth Noting: Sorry but due to free-ranging poultry in the farmyard we are unable to accept dogs. Spring water is supplied but there is no hot water available on site. Private eco toilets and campfires are provided on all pitches. USB camping showers are provided.
Number of Pitches: 5, including one glamping bell tent.
Open: April to October
Site Owners: Rolanda
Address: Gelly, Talsarn, Lampeter, Ceredigion, SA48 8RB
