Explore and Eat, West Wales is Bwydiful!

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

Nestled within a heavenly section of the map of West Wales, a part of the country abundant in untamed wildlife and gorgeous, idyllic scenery, Penrhos Park provides guests with both the time to relax and the option to explore the surrounding areas.

Wales is known for its interesting and deep history but it’s also known for other aspects: rugby, the country’s language (yn Gymraeg) and The Mabinogion (some of the earliest British prose stories) are just a few of these important characteristics. One other alluring reason to visit us in Penrhos Park is the different and delicious food options that imbibe the area! The seafood which is sourced from Cardigan Bay, the fish from the Teifi river and Cambrian Mountain lamb are incredible additions to any menu. These and fruit, herbs and interesting foraged food are just some of the quality food and drink produced in Ceredigion. Not only can you buy the best beef, pork and dairy produce locally - often direct from the producer, but Ceredigion has great places to eat out too, with menus prepared with care by chefs passionate about local ingredients – including our chef at our caravan park in West Wales.

The authentic quality and taste of the produce available at farmers’ markets in Ceredigion, farm shops, local butchers, cafés, pubs and restaurants is ensured through the dedication and skill that farmers and producers have applied over the centuries. Farming has an important history within West Wales and the agricultural processes have been passed down for generations.

If you want to explore the area, there are plenty of places to pique your interest. You could visit the 18th century farm estate at Llanerchaeron, which is still managed self-sufficiently. Welsh Black cattle, Welsh pigs and Llanwenog sheep are bred here, while the on-site shop home sells reared beef, pork and lamb, beef and pork as well as fruit and vegetables.

Head to the New Quay Honey Farm and learn about honeybees, honey and mead! There are beekeepers and gardens you can visit too. You can also learn about beekeeping, wild foods and natural remedies in Ceredigion. After your learning experience is done, you can then head back to your caravan park in West Wales, put your feet up and enjoy some mead.

Visit one of the Ceredigion food festivals that specialise in fish and seafood and discover new tastes. You'll have a great opportunity to chat and question well known and talented chefs while enjoying amazing produce, all sourced locally.

You can see the cheesemaking process on farms in the Teifi valley area - Caws Cenarth at Glyneithinog farm near Cenarth and Glynhynod farm near Llandysul where Caws Teifi is produced. The cheese produced at these places is outstanding and full of flavour – cheese like no other!

Make the memories last as long as possible during your stay at Penrhos Park by taking Ceredigion food and drink home with you as gifts, for a picnic or a special celebration. Take a piece of West Wales home with you, until you decide to come and visit us again. Welcome to Penrhos Park | Holiday Park West Wales
