Wernmill Camping is a small and quiet campsite sitting on the banks of the River Gido, a short distance from the popular seaside town of New Quay. The park is open from April until September every year, and welcomes guests with tents, motorhomes, and caravans. Electric hook-ups are available at Wernmill Camping, while facilities offered to guests include toilet and shower blocks. Dogs are welcome to stay at the park and there's plenty of space around the site for walking and exercising your dogs.
Although the site itself is very basic, with no shop or bar, the nearby local amenities provide everything guests need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. There is a pub and a convenience store on the road into New Quay, The Sea Horse Inn in Margaret Street, while in the town itself there is a good collection of shops, in addition to some more pubs and excellent restaurants. Try The Bluebell Inn at The Pier or Wellington Inn in Wellington Place. Church Street has The Dolau Inn and Queens Hotel. Celebrated Welsh poet Dylan Thomas used to drink in the Black Lion. In 1944 he spent a winter in New Quay and wrote several poems, such as Quite Early One Morning. New Quay residents believe that their town was the inspiration for the village of Llareggub in his most famous play, Under Milk Wood.
New Quay overlooks Cardigan Bay, and is a popular place to visit for guests at the park owing to its great location but also as it is less busy than most of the other towns found along the coast, as it is relatively remote and not situated directly on the main west coast road.
New Quay has a great sandy beach that is perfect for families looking to relax, whether you wish to play on the sand or enjoy paddling and swimming in the water. From the campsite you can walk to the beach and then if the tide is low walk along the beach into New Quay. The harbour area of the town is exceptional, too, and is even home to a population of bottlenose dolphins, which you should be able to spot during your holiday. Seals often pop up here, too. SeaMor Dolphin Watching Boat Trips (Quay Side Gifts, South John Street, New Quay, 07795 242445) can help you make the most of this dolphin-watching and seal-spotting opportunity.
There is plenty to see around the town, and as it is a relatively small place it’s easy to walk around and take in most of New Quay in a day. Among the attractions there is a heritage centre chronicling the history of the area, and a marine wildlife centre that has a diverse collection of species to view.
The town is home to a thriving sea fishing economy, so tourists can often find themselves with the opportunity to enjoy freshly caught seafood in the town’s cafés and restaurants, or to buy it to take back to the site and cook for themselves.
Just outside town is the New Quay Honey Farm, which is the largest bee farm in the country, hosting live bee exhibitions as well as selling fresh honey, beeswax, and various other products.
Nine Oaks Angling and Holiday Centre (01545 580482) is a little further inland and offers trout pools and coarse fishing lakes at Oakford, near New Quay.
