Awel yr Awen Campsite
Awel yr Awen Campsite
• Bell Tent

Awel yr Awen is a new campsite, located at Gelli, the country house and farm where poet Dylan Thomas sat under the great Cedar tree drinking fresh, warm milk from the dairy in the 1940s.

Owned by the Thorpe family sice 1980, the historic organic farm is now a thriving home to bees, chickens, geese, ducks and ponies, as well as providing organic grazing for Welsh Black bulls and sheep, and a vibrant and sustainable vegetable garden, Gelli's hushed atmosphere is a solace to all who come here. Where the 17th century farmhouse stands, there was once a monastic sanctuary with some connection to Strata Florida Abbey. It is likely that the cob walled-garden and the old stone walls marking the fields and farm track go back to those times. The name Awel yr Awen, or ‘Breeze of the Muse’ is apt because it really seems as though poetic inspiration can be found here: as well as Dylan Thomas’s fame, the place has been an inspiration to several other poets, artists and composers.

Home to a wide variety of wildlife, this special place deserves a special camping experience, and here you will find just eight secluded pitches, each with its own campfire not only permitted but encouraged, and its very own private area of wilderness.

Situated only six miles from the coast, there are many beautiful beaches within an easy drive; South of Aberystwyth and North of Cardigan, Awel yr Awen is ideally located for exploring any part of West Wales; alternatively, it is possible that you won’t want to explore at all but just stay put, let the children roam free, soak in the peace and quiet and bask in the rural idyll that Awel yr Awen provides.

This is a peaceful, quiet campsite for the enjoyment of nature. We do not allow radios, stereos or other sound systems and only quiet talking is permitted after 10:00pm.
