Alan Rogers Review

There's very much a water-themed aspect to Shawsmead Caravan and Motorhome Club site as its close proximity to the coast and quaint little bays means swimming and water sports will be filling up much of your holiday time here. A peaceful meadowland site, you'll feel positively tiny amongst the vast open areas and wondrous views towards the coast. The site has 48 mainly hardstanding pitches (some seasonal) all with 16 amp electricity.

Shawsmead site, situated next to the lovely village of Derwen-Gam, is also close to the Heritage Coastal Paths - a memorable experience as is the fishing and bird watching available. Along the coast, there are plenty of beaches and little coves to explore. Four golf courses nearby and the local craft centres will keep the senses stimulated. The site is close to Aberaeron, an old-fashioned small town with a sleepy harbour, pebbled beach and Regency cottages painted in pastel shades. New Quay will resonate with the artist within you with a backdrop that comes straight out of an oil painting. It's better known as a traditional fishing village where fish, lobsters and crab are part of the daily catch.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

From North: turn left off A487 (Aberaeron - Llanarth) just before Llanarth into the road signposted Ystrad Aeron. Do not turn onto any other road signposted Oakford. In 0.5 mile at the crossroads continue straight ahead. The site is on right in 1.25 miles. From South: turn right off the A487 (signposted Ystrad Aeron) to crossroads; then as from North. From East: turn left off A482 (Lampeter - Aberaeron) in Aberaeron onto A487 (Cardigan); then as from North. Do not turn left off A482 before Aberaeron town centre. Recommended route on leaving with caravan/motorhome, turn left out of site, in about 1.25 miles at crossroads (caution required) continue straight ahead onto A487.
