Wild Camping at Cefn Coed
'There can be few things that gladden the soul on a late spring morning more than dusting off the tent and heading out into our globally warmed countryside with a jaunty tune playing on pouted lips. The comforting rustle of a night breeze on the fly-sheet, that pleasing "thuk" as the tent peg bursts through the grass into the soil below, the scuffle of early morning rabbits playing around the guy ropes, there's just nothing like camping for getting away from it all and getting back to nature.’
Minimising the impact
Shifting the odd stone from your pitch is forgivable, but avoid heavy landscaping and always replace any rocks you do move. Creepy crawlies need homes too, and they were there first. Digging drainage ditches is a no-no (you should choose a better drained site in the first place). All rubbish should be packed out, including fruit peel, and toilet arrangements should be carefully considered. Please do not pitch, camp or enter any fields with animals, including sheep. These fields are for Cefn Coed's farm purposes only and make up around 5 acres of the 75 acres available to you. That leaves you with 70 Acres of pure adventure land...
Popular Camping Locations
This map illustrates where camping is permitted on the land surrounding Cefn Coed. The areas inside the boxes are offered to Wild Campers as pitching locations.
The boxed location at the top of the map is the most popular with our Wild Campers due to it's close vicinity to the Cefn Coed River and Mawddach Estuary- enabling easy access to running water.
The area across the A493 is dense with forest, ideal for shelter but not necessarily suited to the less experienced Wild Camper.
Toilets and Parking can be found at the Cefn Coed main site. The clearance of fields in the centre are used for farm land and horses and therefore not available for camping.
