Morfa Buchan, Aberystwyth, Ceredigion [Wales]

Aberystwyth (English: Mouth of the River Ystwyth) is a historic market town, administrative centre and holiday resort within the Ceredigion region in Wales. Often colloquially known as Aber, it is located where the river Ystwyth meets the Rheidol.

We met up with family on the Morfa Bychan camp site in Llanfarian, not far from Aberystwyth and right from the start it rained…….

The camp site is set in an enviable location, bounded on 3 sides by sheep pastures and surrounded by agricultural land for as far as the eye can see and with spectacular sea views over Cardigan Bay to the West. It has a heated outdoor pool, an activity play area for the kids and a social room with pool tables, table tennis, computer games and a TV. There’s a little fenced-off area at the bottom of the field to exercise the dogs [who had to be on leads otherwise] not far from where we parked & hooked up the van. We weren’t lucky with the weather – in fact this was the first (and worst) of many wet weekends – and so just about managed to set up the drive away awning. We were even more unlucky during the 1st night as [cough] *we* had to get up at 1am to take down the awning for fear of taking off [I say *we* but I guess, technically, I mean *Mr B*].

Still…..we braved the elements and spent the next day getting wet out’n about.

And didn’t you just know it….when we got up on Sunday morning, ready to go home, the sun came out and the site looked fabulous!!!

I think we paid £21 per night (expensive for vans). You can’t fault the site (clean, excellent facilities, well laid out, well run) but for us there was just a little *je ne sais quois* missing. The location is superb though and we have already been back – Mr. B’s cousin has a super fancy static there and so we intend to return on a regular basis ^-^
