Andrea and Dave's Hideaway

​A caravan holiday at Cardigan Bay Holiday Park,

Poppit Sands, St Dogmaels​, Pembrokeshire


Welcome to our Site

A few years ago we visited Poppit Sands and fell in love with the area.  We decided to purchase a caravan on the nearby Cardigan Bay Holiday Park. The Park is perfect for those families with small children or couples looking for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. The surrounding area offers both beautiful scenery and a quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

St Dogmaels and the surrounding area will provide you with a sense of adventure where you can enjoy multiple water activities all available in the local area. Alternatively you can relax with a good book and drink on the beach at Poppit Sands.

About our Holiday Home

Welcome to Andrea & Dave's Hideaway, our privately owned three bedroom caravan which has been used by ourselves for our own family holidays, so everything required for an enjoyable but relaxing time has been made available for your stay.

Our caravan is 8 years old but is well looked after and measures 37' x 12', with 3 bedrooms (1 double and 2 twin bed rooms) sleeping 6 in total. It has gas central heating and is double glazed throughout. The kitchen is well equipped and hosts a gas cooker, microwave together with other kitchen appliances including a slow cooker, Bosch Tassimo Suny coffee machine and George Foreman grill, Breville sandwich toaster, food blender.

In a spacious lounge area there is a free standing dining table and chairs for six people. 

The lounge also contains 2 separate sofas with additional bench window seating and also contains a 42” LG TV with access to Freeview channels, Samsung DVD, XBOX 360 & Wii consoles together with CD/Radio. To make life even easier there are also a variety of DVD’s, computer games, books and board games provided to keep the family entertained.

The main bathroom includes a wash basin, toilet and good sized shower cubicle with the added bonus of an additional toilet and wash basin making this an ideal caravan for families.

There is a double bedroom with plenty of storage space whilst the other two bedrooms each contain two single beds and some hanging and cupboard space for the children. Duvets, and pillows for all bedrooms are included in the price.

Please note: We are happy to provide a Linen Pack for your stay. The cost is £10 per person and includes duvet covers, bed sheets, pillowcases and one bath towel, 2 bath mats & 2 hand towels for the WC & WC/shower cubicle and two tea towels.

Whilst there is free WIFI available in the Reception & Bar areas, there is also WIFI available throughout the camp at an additional cost. This can be purchased from Reception on arrival.

The caravan has a small patio area with picnic table, and recliner deck chairs are available for your comfort when spending time outside.

A small kettle BBQ is also available for outdoor dining.

Carry cots, high chairs and door gates can be hired from the park reception office.

On-site parking is available.

The site gets fully booked very quickly year after year with many being return guests so please book early to avoid any disappointment.

What's Included

Gas and electric costs are included in the price, and we provide duvets and pillows for all bedrooms.  

Also the caravan is equipped with most facilities you would normally expect including, 42" TV, DVD, XBOX 360 & Wii games consoles, games, DVD library, microwave, coffee machine, George Foreman grill, slow cooker, patio chairs, small kettle BBQ, iron, portable ironing board & hairdryer

What to Bring

We would suggest a mixed wardrobe as it has been known to rain in Wales, even in the Summer!  If you enjoy walking / hiking a good pair of walking boots is essential and don't forget the bikes. If the beach is your thing then we can also let you use our beach chairs and windbreaker if that helps.  Buckets and spades are also included so all in all there shouldn't be too much more to bring.

Optional Extras

We are happy to provide a Linen Pack for your stay. The cost is £10 per person and includes duvet covers, bed sheets, pillowcases and one bath towel, 2 bath mats & 2 hand towels for the WC & WC/shower cubicle and two tea towels.

Whilst there is free WIFI available in the Reception & Bar areas, there is also WIFI available throughout the camp at an additional cost. This can be purchased from Reception on arrival. 

St Dogmaels Abbey

Situated right in the centre of St Dogmaels are the ruins of a Tironensian Order Abbey. 

If ecclesiastical buildings and ruins are of interest, then the Abbey is well worth a visit. Housed in the Coach House Cafe is the Abbey Museum where you can find many artefacts discovered in the ruins of the Abbey. 

A Day with the Dolphins

There are several companies that provide great days out to watch the Dolphins playing in the Bay. You might be lucky enough to see them by just standing on the beach, but for a fantastic day out and best chance of seeing these fantastic mammals- a boat trip is the best way.  The closest company is "A Bay to Remember" and boats depart from there or alternatively Poppit Sands or Gwbert. Please see the website at www.baytoremember.co.uk

Cardigan Town

Cardigan provides a cultural centre for local residents and visitors to West Wales. In the Town there are traditional Butchers, Bakers and Grocery shops plus specialist local arts and crafts, sports and fishing shops.  Tesco’s, Aldi and Morrison’s can all be found in the town of Cardigan.

We will not be responsible for any personal loss or injury, however caused or sustained to any person or vehicle (including any persons under age 18 years of age).

The hirer is responsible for the conduct of all persons listed on the booking form.

No same sex groups, e.g. hen or stag groups, permitted as the holiday park is a quiet family site and not suitable for such parties.

Please note: We are happy to provide a Linen Pack for your stay. The cost is £10 per person and includes duvet covers, bed sheets, pillowcases and one bath towel, 2 bath mats & 2 hand towels for the WC & WC/shower cubicle and two tea towels.

If you request to cancel your holiday after full payment of the balance has been received we may consider a partial refund provided you have a valid reason why you cannot attend and you are able to provide evidence to support this. This condition is also dependent on us being able to let the week you had booked at the full price. We would therefore recommend that you have holiday cancellation insurance in place at the time of booking your holiday with us. The security bond will however be refunded in full.

We reserve the right to refuse any booking without any obligation to provide a reason

Smoking (including vaping) is NOT permitted in our holiday home

Gas (provided by external gas bottles) and electricity are included within the cost of your holiday.

Provisional bookings will only be held for 7 days. If the deposit hasn't been received then your requested dates will be made available to book once again.

We require a £100 per week NON REFUNDABLE deposit to secure your booking with the balance to be paid 6 weeks prior to arrival. We also ask for an additional £100 refundable security bond payable at the same time as the holiday balance.

In the event that you make late payment of the remaining holiday balance please note that this could result in your dates becoming available to book and you would lose your holiday and deposit.

The security bond will be returned via cheque / bank transfer within 14 days after the end of your holiday providing our terms and conditions have been met and there is no damage / loss etc. to the caravan and you have left it as clean and tidy as it was on your arrival. In the event any additional cleaning is required a further charge of £30 will be deducted from your security bond. 

Out of courtesy, please report to us any damages or breakages as soon as possible. We are obviously aware that accidents happen and therefore we do not intend to enforce the security bond against minor accidental damage, but by reporting these we are then able to replace items for future guests.
