I’m only sharing this review out of respect to the owners of the site, Kevin & Claire... otherwise I’d keep this gem to myself! A lovely intimate and secluded site in small glade in Abercastle. We stayed in the Beachcomber yurt which was a delight. We cooked on the open fire most nights and only made use of the comfy yurt to sleep in (the beds are glorious and heavy duvets most welcome even at the end of a hot day...) Our two boys (6&4) loved it, and we were within striking distance of 3 great beaches for bodyboarding, sandcastles etc... and Abercastle itself is on a fantastic stretch of the coastal path. We walked to Porthgain for fish and chips at the Shed, and enjoyed the stunning coastline whilst burning off the great food. We’ll be going back.
As a family of 5 we spent a week in one of Trellyn's eco-domes. The set up is sympathetic and well-organised within the camping site - not overlooked and with a real sense of having our own space. The dome itself fit us all in comfortably and a 'real' bed at the end of a day hiking, kayaking, swimming or coasteering was a welcome treat (yes, I'm a lightweight camper!!). The outdoor kitchen and bonfire area worked perfectly and we spent most evenings playing board games and looking at the stars. Pizza night is a real treat and my most favourite activity of the trip - chopping wood! Who knew that could be so much fun!? The area has so much to offer - coasteering with Celtic Quest was a highlight for the kids and we all loved the walks and exploring St David's. Kevin and Claire make you feel most welcome but are not in your face or pushy with anything - they've been doing this a long time and have obviously worked hard to find that perfect balance! We would highly recommend this holiday to anyone looking for back-to-basics experience but with still a few creature comforts! Oh, and let's not forget the lobsters!!!…
We had a MAGICAL 4 days walking sections of the PCP with the help of Kevin and Claire. Beautiful lodge, great fun with the firewood, lobsters straight off of the beach and onto the BBQ. Could not recommend enough as a glamping site with a lot of character. Thank you!
We have had 2 wonderful stays at Trellyn in the last 2 years and are coming back for our third in 2018 (next week in fact). Here my 3 kids got into kayaking, which is great fun down at Abercastle. Having a bonfire every night and sitting around with the family, toasting marshmallows, without an electronic device in sight, and just chatting, is worth its weight in gold (or whatever heavy thing you hold as precious). Pizza night is a great get together and having a competition with your own family to make the best pizza is good fun. Kevin and Claire are great hosts and nothing is too much for them. If you can find a vacancy, take it, as you will want to keep coming back.
The site is in a great spot, with the coast a couple of minutes walk away. It’s a huge, wooded site, so birdsong surrounds you, & wild flowers abound. The pitches are few in number & each is huge, & separate from the others. Having a compass loo, & covered shelter with picnic table & campfire spot made it easier, while still being camping! The one wet day made me appreciate these ‘extras’ all the more. Toilet block is always clean, with hot water all the time. Think if the structures as well as tent pitches are all full, there may be a queue for the 2 showers. Claire & Kev are friendly, (but not intrusive), helpfull hosts & do a great pizza night. What more can I say: pity everyone is so enthusiastic about it: going to get even more difficult to book!!
