Set at the foot of the iconic Foel Drygarn, the most eastern of the Preseli Hills, and at the source of the Eastern Cleddau river, Caraway Meadows is a gem of a site. Within the Pembrokeshire National Park, it’s located at the end of a long, unmade track, offering pin-drop quiet, pitch-black star-studded night skies and a true feeling of being immersed in a wild landscape.
Our 75 acre farm, Blaen Cleddau, is a mix of wildflower meadows, marsh and pasture, all of which we manage for wildlife and biodiversity. Amongst the bird, insect and plant life are rare species such as Whorled Caraway, the Marsh Fritillary butterfly and Southern Damselfly. We have mown paths through our traditional hay meadows so you can get up close to the abundance of bees and flowers.
The bridleway that runs through the farm leads to the summit of Foel Drygarn where you’ll have breath-taking views across the Preseli hills and over to the coast at Newport and Dinas Head. It also leads to the start of the famous Golden Road, an exhilarating seven mile walk that runs along the Preseli ridge. This takes in many cairns, rocky tors and ancient monuments such as the Bedd Arthur stone ring marking King Arthur’s legendary burial site, and Carn Menyn once thought to have been the source of the Stonehenge bluestones. The walk ends at the snug Tafarn Sinc (Zinc Tavern) where you can sample the popular home brew!
A twenty minute drive away is the world class Pembrokeshire coast offering a profusion of white sandy beaches, stunning estuaries and dramatic cliffs. Enjoy restaurants and cafes in Newport and Cardigan or seek out wilder spots such as the nature reserve at Camaes Head and the Witches’ Cauldron near Ceibwr Bay.
The site is at the end of an unmade 600m track. We advise you to proceed slowly.
Revenue from the campsite helps to fund our continuing protection of the site and the existing habitats. This is a sensitive environment and we ask that you stick to the paths provided.
