Reviews what our campers and glampers think of us
Wonderful and windy!!
We stayed here with our three young children during one of this summers storms. But the wet and windy weather didn't spoil our fun! The kids loved playing in the den building/swing area and exploring the beautiful woods. Even the many wheelbarrow rides to set up/put down the camp were part of the adventure, they didn't stop smiling the whole trip. We will be back soon to enjoy some more, Thank you.

Beautiful and fun
We loved it - cooking on the fire pit every day, the kids (5, 5 and 7 years-old) had so much fun in the woodland play area making friends. Wonderful beach nearby at the Pembrey Country Park, highly recommend that for a visit. A beautiful, peaceful, clean, and friendly place to stay - really recommend staying at Cynefin.

Amazing Natural Beauty & Super eco-ness
Thank you so much Kay & Judith, I learned so much by talking to you, we loved the beautiful meadow plants and pollinators. The children loved exploring the woods. Thank you for all your cleaning & care at this difficult time. It was so wonderful to escape the inside of our house and be with our friends in the outdoors. I loved hearing and seeing the robins & hearing the nuthatches & love all the work you’ve done in making the habitats for animals.

Excellent eco-camping experience and very welcoming - definitely recommended.
We had a fantastic 2 night stay in the orchard pitch and were immediately made welcome upon arrival with a tour of the facilities by the owner. We were lucky enough to have the orchard to ourselves, giving us the feel of a secluded camping experience (all the while knowing that facilities are close by!) The campsite is in a great location, a short drive away from the Gower, a little walk away from Pembrey Beach (which is beautiful!) and with easy access to the coastal cycle route too. We would definitely recommend a bike trip to St Elli's Bay cafe for lunch. The campsite is lovely, surrounded by trees and wildflowers, and nothing is wasted as the water from the showers and sink runs off into the wildflowers and toilet waste is composted. The toilets and showers are kept impeccably clean. Overall, we had a great camping experience and would definitely recommend Cynefin campsite. Thank you Kay for a lovely stay!

Eco camping heaven
What a find! This campsite is a hidden gem. A very special place with love and thought gone into every aspect. Beautifully set out with large pitches and also very friendly. The kids in the meadow field all clubbed together to play in the woods and do den building, they ran around in a safe but fun environment that prompted contact with nature and learning about wildlife. The night time bat walk was a memorable bonus that our daughter loved, provided by Judith and Kay. The moth trap, bat detectors and head torches made for so much excitement our 5 year old and 7 other children demanded another walk the next night (provided by some willing parents!!) Great compost loos, careful recycling, firepits provided and a relaxed approach made this all feel like eco camping at its best. Watch the stars, listen to the peace and feel yourself unwind. I can't wait to go back next year... thank you.

Grandparents #makingmemories Fabulous outdoor weekend with family
Just returned from a long weekend at this fabulous site. Warm welcome and tour from the hosts, fab facilities which are very well maintained, peaceful and beautiful surroundings. My boys enjoyed playing cricket in the field with neighbours, making dens in the equipped den making area, exploring the safe woodland trails, playing on all the rope swings, spotting bugs, dragonflies and bats and listening for badgers as well as cooking on the campfire. Easy short drive to miles of golden sandy beaches, castles to explore, fish and chips, boat spotting in the harbour and loads more. Would VERY highly recommend for anyone with kids to spend some time at this beautiful place.

Peaceful, easy going, close to the best beach
We loved our stay at Cynefin. We felt peaceful and close to nature. The site has everything you need - compost loos, showers, hand washing, washing up point, fresh water supply, fire pits. Everything was clean and well maintained. Kay was on hand to greet us and make sure we were ok throughout the stay. The pitches are a generous size. It is very quiet at night. Burry Port is less than ten minutes away. It has the most beautiful sandy beach. The beach is huge so there's plenty of space for everyone. Also there is Pembray Country Park a short drive away where you can hire bikes to cycle along the Millennium Trail. Cynefin is a tranquil little haven. It is an ideal break from the real world! We would definitely stay here again.

A real find
Loved this place from the minute we arrived and were warmly greeted by Kay. There were only two other tents and the owners own tipi in the field so lots of space / privacy. The fire pit was an added bonus and foraging in the woods for free twigs / firewood was a great idea. The use of complimentary organic shampoo and shower gel was a lovely idea, and very happy to support as a way of living. Shower with hot water, and a couple of compost toilets .... actually pretty sweet smelling! Quiet, and location was good. We did take a drive out to spend the day at Rosilli Bay, well worth a visit, and breakfast at Hillend campsite where we parked for the great price of £4 all day and lunch at Kings Head are both well worth a visit! Cynefin is lovely and a great place to get away from it all, quiet and you have your own space. Thanks Kay, we hope to be back, Ali & Howard

Fabulous site - don't need to change anything. We loved it! Loved the wood/firepit, shower and loos good, loved the free products to use. You have made a great site, good price, and location. The weather has been fantastic too. Ali Williams (Aug 2019)
Had a lovely stay in the wild birds bell tent. Great site, lots of space, comfy, warm, welcoming. We will come again for sure. Debbie and boys 3/08/19
We had a fabulous time at your campsite this weekend and only wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for all the COVID-19 precautions taken, we felt very safe and well cared for. Magda, Malcolm and Ada 12/08/20
We were made to feel so welcome and it was a good base from which to explore the nearby woodlands and beaches. The children explored the woodland on site and the den building area, picking wild blackberries and making their own jam. Hours of fun around the campfire. So much space. A brilliant 4 days. Katalind and family August '20
What a fantastic stay at Cynefin. A wonderful welcome with everything we needed for a tranquil and relaxing break. Our first experience of compost toilets didn't disappoint and were pretty straight forward. Beaut showers! Loved it. Fire pit lit every night. Samantha 31.07.20
We are pretty seasoned campers and Cynefin is easily one of our favourite sites. Beautiful, spacious pitches and clean facilities. Kay and Judith are warm, welcoming yet unobtrusive hosts. They were diligent and conscientious about Coronavirus restrictions, enabling us to relax and feel safe. Definitely bring bikes or hire some - the local cycle paths are so good you could be in Holland!

What a fantastic 10 day holiday! Such a great find - so very 'green' and incredibly clean. We have been made to feel so welcome, everyone here is so friendly. The location has been perfect for exploring this part of Wales- we have had some lovely days out on the Gower, The Beacons, Pembrokeshire etc. We have made some lovely memories.

We've had the best time , loved this place and what you have done to the red ribbon woods. Keep up the good work. Eva 2/08/19
We have had a ball, thank you so much! Aside from the idyllic location, we have loved the night nature walk with the head torches, bat detectors and moth traps. We've hung out in the hide at dusk looking for owls and badgers, we've picked blackberries, built a den, swung on the woodland tree swings and enjoyed every bit of wildlife and nature which was here for us.

We absolutely loved living in the bell tents! They were incredibly cosy and comfortable. The open plan kitchen was amazing. We spent a lot of time chilling and cooking there. Sanjani, Abhi, Snelly and Darshan August 2018
Wow, what a gorgeous place! It was such a treat to stay in this peaceful idyll amongst the wild flowers and butterflies. Everything was beautifully designed and to be so close to the amazing beach and excellent cycling paths was a bonus. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Sarah from Brighton July '18
Fantastic stay in the Wolf Tipi. We really enjoyed the lovely sheltered spot and amazingly well-equipped kitchen - Kay and Judith have thought of everything you could possibly need! The site is obviously a labour of love and we would love to come back to see how it evolves. Louise 26/07/19
Beautiful campsite in a perfect location - lovely beaches, woods and views nearby. Loved being able to have a fire, listen to birds and just chill out in nature. Great facilities too, everything you need for a comfortable stay. Katherine Murphy 2018
It has been a pleasure to stay in this beautiful campsite. We love its natural feel and sleeping amongst the meadow flowers and wildlife(including the resident Buzzard and Pipestrelle bats) Great facilities, lovely hot shower, and built-in kitchens! Kay and Judith are very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Sarah and Pauline 30/07/19
We had a lovely stay here - very peaceful and lots to keep the children entertained. Best nights sleep for all of us in a long time! Even the toddler slept well. Sophee and Pryse. 28/07/19
