The Owner Says

Cost - £70 a night for 2 adults and 2 children for a minimum of 3 nights.  All camping equipment supplied.
Our 2 Bell Tents  sit on their own in our Bell Tent Meadow, a small but beautiful wild flower meadow surrounded by oak, hazel and willow trees. Each of the 5m bell tents is fitted with a comfortable double bed plus  2 small single beds for children, complete with all bedding.  The living area is furnished with cushions, throws and rugs to create a cosy inside space.   At the edge of the meadow  is a large kitchen shelter fully fitted with all the equipment you will need, including a gas stove, for a great camping holiday.  Although the kitchen shelter is shared by both bell tents each tent has its own private space and equipment.  You do not need to share.    Evening fires are positively encouraged as long as it is in the  fire bowl provided for each tent.  Logs and firewood are readily available (your first trug is free and then each trug of logs costs £3). Each tent has a  large picnic bench to enjoy those outside picnics or an evening around the campfire.  Solar pendant lights  are provided for each tent. 
Our bell tents are perfect for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) but a further lilo and sleeping bag can be provided for a 3rd child if necessary at an extra cost of £5 a night.    Why not come with second family and book both bell tents? A perfect place for the adults to sit and relax while the children go off and play in the woods or in the den building area.
The meadow has an abundance of flowers.  Some seasons, these can include snakeshead fritillary,  purple loosestrife,  rosebay willowherb,  birdsfoot trefoil,  fat hen as well as the more common primrose, snowdrop, bluebells, and yellow flag iris.  They really are the ideal place for a spot of tranquil off grid camping.  We mow as little as possible so that you can enjoy the beauty of the meadows with circles cut  out for the tents with mown walkways to the amenities.
Waterless toilets are available nearby as well as 2 LPG gas shower pods. 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 through our own private woodland 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.  A short distance away is one of the best beaches in Wales - Cefn Sidan which is approximately 7-8 miles of wild, empty pristine Blue Flag Beach.  It does become busy at the entrance to Pembrey Country Park but mostly you can get away from the crowds and find that little bit of perfect empty space in the sun.
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.

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.
