Erwlon Caravan & Camping is a family run campsite in Wales with excellent facilities and a warm welcome. Within easy walking distance of the ancient borough of Llandovery and at the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, Erwlon is an ideal base for touring, walking or cycling in south west Wales.
You can get to all the primary attractions and coastal resorts of south and west Wales within a comfortable drive between an hour to one and a half hours, or you can take in a number of circular tours that you can follow to take in the beautiful countryside on your way.
Erwlon Caravan & Camping prides itself on providing a friendly welcome (in Welsh if you wish). The family has been running the park alongside its dairy farm for three generations now and has invested significantly in the campsite in the past few years, resulting in many awards – it has featured in the Top 100 Sites Guide complied by Practical Caravan, Practical Motorhome and this website, Caravan Sitefinder, which lists the best campsites in the UK. This site welcomes touring caravans, tents and motorhomes and now offers deluxe camping pods with full en suite facilities.
Particularly popular with young families, Erwlon caters for all and includes facilities for disabled visitors and parents with babies. Within the heated amenity block are free showers, hairdryers and shaving points, family rooms that include a shower, WC, washbasin and a baby changing table, plus there's a laundry room and a place for dishwashing. There is also a motorhome service point with black and grey waste discharge, a separate chemical WC disposal and a battery charging point.
This attractively landscaped campsite, which includes "Adults only" and "Family Friendly" sections, children's playground, riverside glamping and "super pitches" incl. hardstanding with individual services to each pitch. Wi-Fi is available across the park. However, the park remains a quiet retreat without the bustle of a clubhouse.
On site, relax outside and watch the red kites fly overhead, spot the kingfisher along the riverbank or even catch a glimpse of a wild mink. If you're feeling athletic, take in a little golf, hire a bike or go fishing – they are all available close by or you can simply take a stroll into Llandovery in the evening for a drink and meal. Visit the local heritage centre and find out about the Bank of the Black Ox, "Twm Sion Cati" or the tales of the old "Drovers" (which explains why Llandovery used to have so many pubs). There are plenty of quaint rural villages to explore too, even if it's simply for a pint in a nearby pub!
For those with children why not take a tour down the "Big Pit" and go below ground again at the Showcaves at Dan-yr-ogof or even look for gold with a guided tour of the National Trust's Dolaucothi Gold Mines? If the little ones want more excitement, take a thrilling ride at the Oakwood theme park or take a jet boat around the islands off Pembrokeshire. However, if you really want to tire them out, let them go pony trekking or mountain biking instead! There are excellent off-road cycling centres within the vicinity, including Coed Trallwn, set amidst a privately owned forest, as well as several riding centres within 20 miles of the campsite.
