- Please download the map of the farmyard & campers notes from our website prior to your arrival and read it carefully, so that you can familiarise yourself with the farm layout, Cae Gwyn camping rules, and the whereabouts of the facilities for campers.

- As Cae Gwyn camping fields are part of a working sheep farm, please respect the working of the farm and farm conditions i.e. cars not always allowed in camping fields especially in wet conditions.

- Please do not throw away used gas canisters in the bins, and take home large unwanted/broken items i.e. chairs/ tables/ barbecues/ inflatable beds etc. as you will otherwise be charged for safe disposal.

- You are welcome to use portable and reusable barbeques with stand, but please ensure that they are approximately 20cm off the ground to avoid scorching the grass.Please do not bring disposable barbecues, to help reduce the volume of refuse. We usually have some BBQs available to use, please ask.
