A perfect spot close to the coast of Wales for campers who don't want the hassle of, well, camping!

Perfectly situated for the beaches of Wales' beautiful west coast, there's arguably no better place to escape the rat-race than this Cardigan Bay campsite, which has two Ready Camp tents just waiting to be occupied by glamping enthusiasts or those who want to camp but just don't want the hassle of, well, camping. 

The site itself has excellent facilities, with hot showers, well-kept toilets, a laundry and a dishwashing area, along with a children's play area and ample space for a ball games, and the Ready Camp tents offer the best kind of balance between home comforts and outdoor living and are equipped with everything you need for a fully-fledged family holiday. 

There are two bedrooms with proper beds (the tents can comfortably sleep four adults or a family of six), a fully stocked kitchenette and an extending living area with an outside verandah from which you take in the views and plan your days – from coves and beaches for surfing, swimming and seal and dolphin-spotting to the delights and unforgettable scenery of the nearby Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire Coastal Paths. 

The town of Cardigan itself is only around 15 miles away, and is packed full of shops, galleries, cafés and restaurants, while just a couple of miles to the north, New Quay is popular seaside resort with a busy fishing harbour and access to some lovely sandy beaches. 



Cardigan Bay is a well-equipped site with plenty of amenities, including hot showers, well-kept toilets, a laundry and a dishwashing area, along with a children's play area and ample space for a ball-games and other activities.


There's lots to see and do in this corner of Ceredigion, much of it nature-related. Three miles from the campsite, Cwmtydu Beach, with its smugglers' caves and rocky outcrops, is a beautiful spot to enjoy coastal scenery and wildlife, from dolphins and seals to porpoises and red kites. The seaside town of New Quay is not only a pleasant resort and fishing harbour but also the place to head for if you fancy getting out on the water – sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and powerboating are all available in New Quay with Cardigan Bay Watersports (01545 561257). You can also take a wildlife-spotting boat trip or a family-friendly canoe excursion up the Teifi Gorge with Cardigan Bay Active (01239 612133), or take a ride on the Vale of Rheidol steam railway (01970 625819), which regularly makes its twisting way through the woodlands into the majestic Cambrian mountains. Finally there's the town of Cardigan itself, 15 or so miles to the southwest on the mouth of the Teifi river, which has more great beaches nearby  – for example Mwnt –Cardigan Castle (01239 623678) and shops, restaurants, galleries and more.     

Food & Drink

Perhaps the closest pub to the site is the Penrhiwgaled Arms, in Cross Inn (01545 560238), a cosy, seventeenth-century hostelry that serves wide-ranging pub grub menu, including excellent homemade curries. In New Quay you should really eat fish, and the best place to do it is the Lime Crab (01545 561400), right on the quayside, whose seafood boxes and freshly cooked fish and chips, best eaten sitting on the harbour wall, are fantastic. In Cardigan, try Food for Thought (01239 621863), a busy café which does excellent tea, coffee, cakes and lunches, the wood-fired pizzas at Pizza Tipi (01239 612259), right by the castle, or the Ferry Inn (01239 61517), overlooking the river just outside the centre of town, where the food is good and the views sublime.

The Owner Says

Your time spent…where it matters

Time away with family & friends is great, but let’s be honest - it can sometimes be hectic to even think about!

Ready Camp takes away some of the stresses and hassles of camping - having a pre-erected, canvas-wrapped haven with real beds, a kitchen and dining area. There’s no need to fill the car rammed to the rafters with an endless supply of ‘just in cases’. We give you back the time to do the fun things together with your friends and family.

Pack your bedding & a sense of adventure

Walk into a comfortable haven with cosy furnishings and oodles of little luxuries.  With two bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area where you can wine and dine to your hearts content or put your feet up on the comfy settee after a long day’s adventure.

The Kitchen area includes a fridge, microwave and hob, along with basic cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. (We’ve even supplied the corkscrew!)

When it comes to light’s out…we’ve even included a torch for those midnight toilet trips, or just to make funny shadows on the tent!
