We've just returned from a May bank holiday camping experience at this lovely small site, hosted by Marilyn and Nick, who just could not do enough for us. We were a party of 13, with a VW campervan and numerous tents, 6 adults, 7 kids and a dog, and were given a relatively sheltered spot in the trees on what turned out to be a very blowy weekend. Marilyn brought everyone on arrival a hot brew, much appreciated, and was eager to share her local knowledge, best walks, nicest pubs, etc. The views across the fields to Porthgain and to the sea were great, the sky at night was lit up with stars, our own campfire kept us snug and happy. The kids enjoyed playing football on the field, swinging on the giant punchbag, stroking the goats and generally exploring and going a bit feral! The adults fared similarly! We all had a fab bbq on our first night, enjoyed a lovely coastal walk to Abereiddy and round to Porthgain, the kids took on the locals on the football pitch at Porthgain while the grown-ups enjoyed a local ale in the sun and browsed the crafts shops and art galleries. We walked back to Porthgain for a great meal at the Sloop Inn (book in advance if big group) - Marilyn was kind enough to dog sit our friends' young dog while we did so, which was really going above and beyond. The whole ambience of the site was friendly, laid back and peaceful. Facilities are ace, two power showers and three loos in a warm and beautifully made outdoor facility close to all tents, and there's also the luxury indoor bathroom with power shower and toilet. There's a brill cwtch, a whole site firepit; there were personal firepits available last year but they've all been stolen by campers - some people really have no concept of shared benefits! We took our own as it happens but the cwtch looked like a great communal facility. It was well worth the journey from the Midlands. People like Marilyn and Nick, who go out of their way to be welcoming, accommodating and kind, really do deserve support - highly recommended.
