Our campsite re-opened on Monday 29th March for self-contained holiday-makers travelling from within Wales only. We began welcoming guests from England from the 12th April. Our shared facilities re-opened as per Welsh Government guidance, on Monday 17th May.

Our farm attraction re-opened for the 2021 season on Thursday 29th April – please check our opening times here.

We would like to thank all of our supporters and visitors for your your continued support during these most challenging of times. The Lewis family arrived at Carnhuan in 1849 and it will take more than Covid-19 to knock us off balance.

Croeso, Welcome, Willkommen, Bienvenue!
