Candleston Campsite PDF Print E-mail

Candleston Campsite is a large site ideally suited to live role play, re-enactment, and other activity groups.
Our site is located within 100 acres of woodland 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 lies on very sandy, free draining soil and is therefore usable in all weathers!
