I'd heard about Fforest over a year ago, but couldn't get the dates I needed on a previous holiday. Imagine how excited I was to be able to get the dates I needed this year...
We arrived in Cardigan after a long trip down from Scotland (and a ferry ride from Northern Ireland!) and, following the directions in the email, very quickly found the camp. The only real problem we encountered was right at the start... We didn't know where to go or what to do!
After a bit of detective work, we were sorted out by Louie, who quickly gave us the tour and brought us to our Threepi. For it being a big tent, it was very comfortable. The camp beds are a very high quality set up, I had hurt my back prior to the trip... But the bed wasn't an issue, it was actually quite therapeutic.
The wood burner in the tent was simple to use and quickly heated up the area. The kitchen area and decking are perfect for relaxing and cooking up some good scram. Everything is easily accessible. The showers and toilets are close by (even in the dead of night!) and the on site pub is within staggering distance. Very handy!
The included breakfast is a community deal. Cereal, eggs, toast and a selection of preserves and spreads are available.
The staff are brilliant, and the other guests are quickly part if your holiday (like minded folks always seem to get along!) making it a brilliant experience!
We'd planned more than we could fit in, so didn't take part in the many activities available, but there's plenty that can be joined in to if you want!
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday or an adventure, Fforest is your spot!
