|Plas-y-Wern is an old Welsh stone farmhouse and three cottages, which have been converted from the original stone and slate farm buildings. These are set in a private courtyard and seven acres of grounds, on a coastal hillside overlooking the Marine Heritage Coast of Cardigan Bay in West Wales.
The emphasis here is on a peaceful country holiday. You can enjoy the lovely panoramic country and sea views all year round. In summer you can sit out in your garden and watch the sun set over the bay.
We welcome tourers, motorcaravans and campers and are listed as a certificated site in The Camping and Caravanning Club. Please ask for details.
B&B accommodation is available in The Studio (a self contained annexe which sleeps 4 + cot if required). It has a double bed, double sofabed, en-suite shower room, colour TV, DVD player, tea/coffee making facilities and a sea view.

Plas-y-Wern is situated 8 miles north of Cardigan, half a mile off the West Wales coast road to Aberystwyth. The blue flag beaches of Tresaith and Aberporth are within 3 miles and nearby are the three National Trust beaches of Penbryn, Mwnt and Cwmtudu. Most of these beaches are sheltered, sandy coves and many are connected by spectacular cliff top walks.
Cardigan Bay was the UK’s first Marine Heritage Coast sheltering some of the rarest birds and marine life and is home to bottlenose dolphins, porpoises and grey seals. These are regularly spotted from the shore and boat trips are available from New Quay and Aberaeron to see them close up.
Plas-y-Wern is centrally situated for touring and walking. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path and Preseli hills are situated to the south, with the mountains of Snowdonia National Park to the North. The Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains are to the East, and if you want to go West, why not have a day trip to Ireland and see Dublin?!
Winding down is easy here with the leisurely lifestyle and laid-back atmosphere. However, the opportunities are endless to join in the pursuits of walking spectacular paths, cycling, sailing, surfing, sea fishing, bird-watching, pony trekking or golf.
