Candleston is an excellent location which is available to hire exclusively to anyone. Our 100 acre site is located in Merthyr Mawr, South Wales. Adjoining the site is the 900 acre Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve fronting over a kilometre of sandy beach, part of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Adjacent to the site is Candleston Castle; an atmospheric, ruined 14th century fortified manor house with a large walled courtyard. The campsite, Nature Reserve, Castle, woodland, and surrounding land offer a huge variety of landscape features, and together form part of Merthyr Mawr Estate

 

The site is available to be booked for most of the year, and includes a number of camping areas with excellent facilities including toilets, showers, washrooms, hot water and a large central building with a fully equipped catering kitchen and a generator.

The camping areas are situated in woodland glades with a capacity to comfortably accommodate groups of 100 -300 people, more if vehicles are parked separately.

 

Around the camping area and adjoining woodland are a series of features to enhance your visit and can be used by anyone that hires the site. These include a fort, a pirate ship, a mead hall and a competition pit. Together with the natural features such as mounds, hollows, large trees, and big open glades, the site offers the ideal environment for a wide range of hobby based activities or a great family holiday.

 

The site lies on very sandy, free draining soil and is therefore usable in all weathers with no danger of waterlogged vehicles or ground too hard for the tent pegs.
