Introduction

Fferm Llwynifan Farm – South Wales Touring Park strives to ensure that all guests and visitors can enjoy the facilities and surroundings within the park. Our aim is to help in any way we can and if you require any assistance during your stay or whilst planning your visit we will be delighted to offer our services.

As the farm diversified into tourism, the park was developed on the farm land, we are at the top of the hill. The park itself is set on a slight slope; however, this doesn’t prove too difficult for those with a disability, wheelchairs or other mobility vehicles.

We are happy to accept queries by email, textphone Hywel and Cathrin always accept Type Talk calls.

Pitch information – Our Park offers touring caravan and motor-home pitches. Standard pitches no 17 and 1, and serviced pitches 6, 11 and 7 are the pitches within close proximity to our amenity block, there is a gradual gradient to all these pitches from our facilities. Pitches are allocated on booking and we are happy to advise on the location and suitability for your requirements. Requests can be made for pitches close to facilities – please do so at time of booking.

Each pitch has a grassed area, which is closely mown, before each arrival the pitch gravel areas are raked. Cars can be parked at the side of each serviced pitch, and behind the van on all the standard pitches.  Awnings must be put up on the hard standing area, to prevent the grass from dying.

Serviced pitches – All our Serviced pitches have Electric hook up, extra-large hard standing area, a cold drinking water tap, grey waste drain, free Wi-Fi, a courtesy light and a picnic table.

Standard Pitches – Our standard pitches have electric hook up, free Wi-Fi, and a hard standing area.  There are two main water taps, one is on the same level as the standard pitches, the other is near the shower block.
