Things To Do

Pembrokeshire has so much to offer with its stunning coastline, rugged Preseli Mountains, and bustling market towns and villages. A healthy tourist industry means there are plenty of organised activities on offer, including coasteering, kayaking, rock climbing and surfing. Boat trips from a host of different ports offer a different view of the coastline and a chance to see dolphins, seals and puffins, depending on the time of year.

Within 1km of Bryncoed Camping:

Nevern

Bryncoed Camping is a short walk from Nevern, a pretty little village nestled in the valley below Carningli (Angel Mountain). It has its own church, St Brynach’s, The Trewern Arms serving food and local ales, a Village Hall, and a river running through it. It even has its own castle ruins! Several circular walks start in Nevern.

 

Historical Sites

This part of Pembrokeshire is known in Welsh as Gwlad Hud a Lledrith, meaning Land of Magic and Enchantment.

The following places are all within 10 minutes of the campsite:

Pentre Ifan

Look back towards the campsite and the sea from this neolithic burial chamber, which has attracted pilgrims for millenia.

Castell Henllys

Reconstructed iron age round houses, furnished with replica artifacts. Reinactment events and celtic workshops take place throughout the year.

Carningli

Mynydd Carningli is the closest of the Preseli Hills to Nevern and Bryncoed Camping. It was formed as an ancient volcano (no chance of a modern day eruption, don’t worry!) and has visible remains of both Iron Age and Bronze Age settlements. The 360 degree views on a clear day are well worth the walk up to the top.

St Brynach’s Church, Nevern

As well as being a very charming church, other points of interest are the Vitialanus Stone with 5th or 6th Century Ogham Script, bleeding Yew tree, and 10th century Celtic Cross.

Shops, Eateries and Nights Out

Ten minutes drive from the campsite is the beachside town of Newport. A Spar and wholefood shop, a butcher, many pubs and cafés, a post office, pharmacy and doctor’s surgery can be found here. A street market with food produce and local artisan stalls happens on Mondays 9am-1pm.

Cardigan is 15 minutes from Bryncoed Camping, a larger market town with a Tesco, Asda, cinema, two theatres, many independent shops, cafés and pubs.

For your organic fruit and veg, and sourdough bread, Glebelands market garden in St Dogmael’s is highly recommended.

Across the main road, on the slopes of Carningli, Bluestone Brewing Co. has regular live music events, and sells its own beer on site.
