  • special bylaws prohibit camping on National Trust land 
  • farmers and other landowners may give permission to camp on enclosed land for which there maybe a fee 
  • there are a number of camping sites that may appeal to the "wild country camper" and a leaflet listing them is available from National Park Information Centres.
General Information:

Campsite and Caravan parking facilities vary greatly from site to site from  a farmers field to offering onsite swimming pools. As a general guide the camping facilities on this page are more informal whereas the larger commercial sites with more extensive facilities are listed on the Caravan Sites web page. But this is not always the case so please check with the camping or caravan site for full details of their charges and facilities before booking. If you think that any particular site should be listed on the Caravan Site then please let us know.

This listing is does not constitute in any way an endorsement of the quality or otherwise of the establishment concerned.  Contact the establishment for further details. Where websites have been established a link is offered. On arrival in Wales Mid and West Wales Tourism have a useful free accommodation help line Tel: 0800-273747.  Tourist Information Centres in Wales.
