Cenarth Falls Holiday Park Newcastle Emlyn, Ceredigion, Wales, SA38 9JS (Location map)
1st March to 15th November
Cenarth Falls Holiday Park in Ceredigion could be the perfect place to spend your holidays in Wales. Nestled in the rural beauty of the Teifi Valley, it's a small site, but one with great amenities.
There are just 29 pitches here spread across a two-acre field, which accommodate touring caravans, campervans, motorhomes, trailer tents and tents. All are shingle, hardstanding pitches and all have 16A electric hook-ups. Those bringing tents should remember to pack a mallet and some heavy duty tent pegs (the park sells these), plus camping mats.
The park also has caravan holiday homes and character cottages for hire (these are about a mile from the Park) and there is also a number of caravan holiday homes for sale too.
The amenities block has toilets, basins and showers, while there's also a washing up area and chemical disposal points. The parks laundrette has washing machines, tumble dryers, spin dryers and ironing facilities.
Cenarth Falls Holiday Park is also a dog friendly campsite. Please keep dogs on a short lead at all times and under control, and remember to clean up after them.
If you're looking to tire the kids out at this family friendly park, send them to the play area (which has slides, swings and more) and games room, or the outdoor swimming pool which is open from the spring bank holiday, right through summer until the start of September. You'll also be pleased to hear that these areas are located away from the main touring area, so the peaceful nature of this park is preserved.
Mobile phone reception isn't too good on site, however visitors can jump on the parks Wi-Fi (for a small fee).
Fancy something a little different from your caravan holidays in Wales? The good news is that at Cenarth Falls Holiday Park you don't need your own caravan as there are holiday caravan homes for hire. These spacious and modern holiday homes sleep four – or more if you use the pull-out bed in the lounge. Each caravan has a well kitted out kitchen with a gas oven and hob, a fridge and freezer, a kettle, a toaster, a microwave, a cafetiere and all the cutlery and crockery you could need. There's also a flatscreen TV with Freeview. Please bring your own tea towels and bathroom towels. There's an £8/bed fee for bed linen, or you can bring your own.
And there's more. Coracles Health and Country Club is in the grounds of this campsite and there's plenty to do, whether you wish to pamper yourself or burn some calories. There's an indoor heated swimming pool with a jacuzzi, steam rooms, a sauna and a gym. Then why not finish your day in the lounge bar with your favourite drink? There's also entertainment during the year.

You're also just a 15- or 20-minute drive from the ancient town of Cardigan, which is well worth your time. Visit the Welsh Wildlife Centre, head to the Dyfed Shire Horse Farm in Eglwyswrw, 20 minutes from site, or have a day out at New Quay Honey Farm, about half an hour north of this park.
So if you're looking to spend your motorhome tours and camping and caravan holidays in south west Wales, Cenarth Falls Holiday Park is a small and quiet park that also boasts an impressive range of facilities.
Cenarth Falls is a beautiful spot in which to enjoy all that is best about Wales. We're just a short stroll from the famous Falls where the salmon can be seen leaping, and there's a beautiful riverside walk through the village, an ideal way to enjoy a summer's evening.
The market towns of Cardigan and Newcastle Emlyn are both within easy reach. Cardigan has a diverse cultural past that will eventually be displayed in the Castle which is currently undergoing a large restoration project following many years of neglect. Newcastle Emlyn is also home to a castle ruin but is probably more interesting for its varied range of individual little shops - a great place to wander.
Other favorite visits include Mwnt Beach, Poppit Sands, Welsh Wildlife Centre at Teifi Marshes-Cilgerran, Llanerchaeron Estate (National Trust), Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort, National Botanic Garden of Wales and Folly Farm (great rain or shine).
A short distance from the Park are numerous safe sandy beaches offering something for all ages from secluded coves and rock pools to areas for birdwatching, walking or even keeping a lookout for the dolphins of Cardigan Bay! Golfers and Fishermen will be spoilt for choice.
