Meadow Pitch 3

UK Wales South Wales Carmarthenshire Pembrey Cynefin Eco Camping

  • Pet Friendly
Pitch up in our wonderfully spacious meadow, with full access to 2 LPG shower pods and 3 waterless toilets.

The Owner Says

Each pitch is priced at £28 a night for  a maximum of 6 people per pitch. If you need to bring more than 6 people on your holiday you will need to book more than one of our pitches. (minimum of 2 nights).  Dogs are welcome on our pitches as long as owners are responsible.
Our site has 5 acres of old Welsh woodland containing mostly mature oaks, blackthorn, hawthorn, rowan and hazel and 5 acres of wildflower meadows which we manage to encourage wildlife.   They really are the ideal place for a spot of tranquil off grid camping.   Peace, tranquillity and plenty of space - we don't like camping where you trip over guy ropes and hear the person next door snoring!  We mow as little as possible so that you can enjoy the beauty of the meadows, with circles cut into the meadows to pitch the tents, with mown walkways to the amenities.  Bring your deckchair and listen to the quiet of the countryside, apart from the birds of course.  Children will be free to romp and explore nature as well as build a den in the children's woodland area.   We provide tarps, old tyres and long hazel poles by the barn for the adventurous.   
Our pitches allow you to bring your own tent and all your own camping equipment.  You will have  access to 2 LPG shower pods and 3 waterless toilets nearby.  Evening fires are positively encouraged as long as it is in the fire bowl provided free for each tent.  Logs and firewood are readily available (your first trug is free and then each trug of logs costs £3). 
We try to be as green and sustainable as possible but realize that each family booking will include one car.  The train and bus links are quite difficult to access from the campsite.  But if we could discourage all our campers from bringing more than one car per pitch that would be fantastic.  We have limited amounts of hard standing for parking.  If you just have to bring more than one car per pitch there will be an extra charge of £5 a night for the second vehicle.  Please ring and discuss if this is a problem.
A woodland trail begins near your tent and there is a right of way adjacent to Cynefin, on the site of an old carriage way, where you can walk to Ffrwd Fen National Nature Reserve on public footpaths and quiet lanes.  Within a short distance there is also one of the best beaches in Wales - Cefn Sidan, a 7-8 mile stretch of wild, unspoilt beach where it is possible to find your own space away from the crowds.
Within 10 minutes of Cynefin there are two very good farm shops. Our particular favourite is Burns Farm Shop at Parc y Bocs Farm, Kidwelly which offers home grown vegetables, eggs and meat from their ancient Cattle of Wales herd.

Our Best Price Guarantee

We guarantee our prices at Cool Camping are the same, or lower, than booking elsewhere. If not, tell us, and we’ll match it or beat it. Click here to read the full terms

About Cynefin Eco Camping

Suitable For

Yes to Glampers, tent campers, groups and people with a love of nature as well as a sense of fun. Sorry but no to campervans or caravans –  we do not have enough hard standing or chemical toilet disposal.


The fabulous beaches of Carmarthenshire are within easy driving distance, including 8-mile-long Cefn Sidan Beach (Blue Flag) less than 2 miles from site, along with Llanelli Beach, Burry Port Beach and Pendine. The historic harbour of Burry Port is well worth wandering around, particularly at high tide. Cyclists should try the 13-mile-long Millennium Coastal Path along the waterfront, while walkers can follow the same route or, from the campsite, stroll up Pembrey Mountain or explore the local SSSI (Ffrwd Farm Mire; 10 minutes' walk from the campsite) and 500-acre Pembrey Country Park (great for family picnics and access to the beach with lifeguards on standby).

Food & Drink

Burry Port has a small selection of shops for everyday needs, including local butchers and bakers. Llanelli (5 miles away) has a large shopping centre with supermarkets (Tesco, Asda, Morrisons). Llanelli and Carmarthen both have indoor covered market selling local produce. Burns Farm Shop (01554 892724) at Park Y Bocs Farm, Kidwelly is an excellent farm shop with a children’s play area and very nice café-restaurant. For a good local pub, you can't go far wrong with the Pembrey Country Inn (01554 834530), in Randell Square, Pembrey. They have good pub grub, some live music and the locals are friendly. Other pubs in the area include the Coasting Pilot (01554 833520) and Pemberton Arms (01554 832129). The golf club (01554 744888) in Machynys, Llanelli is also a top place for a drink or meal with a spectacular view of the estuary.

Getting There

From the east, leave the M4 at junction 48 and head to Llanelli on the A4138. Join the A484 at the traffic lights at Pemberton and follow the road through the centre of the town, following signs for Carmarthen. Drive through Pwll, Burry Port and on to Pembrey. In Pembrey, pass the church on your left and carry on until you reach the old pub on the right hand side (now an Indian restaurant called Nazs Rasoi; 01554 891083). Turn right onto the B4317, over a hump backed bridge, past a row of old cottages on the left and round a tight left-hand bend with a cottage on the left. Go up the hill until you reach the ranch fencing and metal gateway of Cynefin. If you pass Fairview Farm on the left you have gone too far. The nearest train station is Pembrey and Burry Port railway station, in the centre of Burry Port village, 3½ miles from the campsite.
