Ferry-friendly camping close to Fishguard Bay, with campfires, glamping accommodation and excellent views down the Goodwick Valley

If you’re catching the ferry to Ireland, Tregroes Caravan, Camping and Glamping Park has you covered. From the elevated position of the grassy camping meadow, you can see the ferries as they arch their way into Fishguard Bay, one mile away. You can drive from campsite to port in under five minutes. Or drive from the campsite to anywhere, for that matter; the beach, the chippy, the dinghy-dotted old harbour or the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path that wiggles its way along the cliff-tops to Strumble Head.

Set over six acres, family-run Tregroes welcomes campers of all stripes, with electricity for caravans and campervans and a spread of grassy tent pitches with views down the Goodwick Valley. More recently, amicable owners Colin and Sam have also added a clutch of glamping options – yurts and a pod, each with their own private kitchen cabin. The result is a campsite with a real live-and-let-live atmosphere. Campfire smoke wafts through the evening air and kids kick a ball about by the goal posts. When the sunset comes, it casts an orange glow across the valley, the sun disappearing over the high ground that blocks Strumble Head Lighthouse (six miles away) from view.

The campsite has ample facilities for the 30-odd pitches available and the small shop, from which free WiFi is beamed, is well stocked with everything from charcoal and marshmallows to local artwork, model tractors and Tregroes waffles. For anything else, the various delicatessens of Fishguard will have what you need, with Mannings Grocers stocking the most local of local produce. Buses run regularly through Fishguard’s main square in summer, meaning you can ditch the car and go for long one-way walks along the coastal path with ease. Heading west to Strumble Head is rightfully popular, with seals frequenting the bays, while sea kayaking groups often choose to bob in a westerly direction, taking in the tiny, rocky coves on the way to Pwllgwaelod Beach.

Back at base, another Stena Line ferry can be spotted invading the bay, signalling the arrival of the 18:10 from Rosslare and a couple more campers hoping to pitch their tent for the night. It’s the peacetime version of an invasion at least. For it was here, in 1797, that Britain saw its last ever invasion, when the French landed just west of Fishguard in a two-day skirmish that ended by treaty in the market square. The strip-beamed Royal Oak pub, where it was signed, has a plaque in commemoration and there’s a Bayeux–style tapestry in the town hall. There’s no sign of the campsite stitched into the latter but maybe camping wasn’t a big thing back then.

Nearby

Walk the 20 minutes into Fishguard, with local shops for your day to day needs. Sea kayaking and sailing can be arranged in the lower town (as well as crabbing with a bucket, line and net) and you can arrange wildlife-watching boat trips, too, though the campsite is just a mile or so from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Path, where you can walk and see much of the wildlife from the shore – the route to Strumble Head is good for seal spotting and, if you're very lucky, you may see dolphins. Use the number 404 'Strumble Shuttle' bus if you want to leave the car and travel further afield whilst still using Tregroes as a central base. Plenty of breathtaking beaches nearby (around 15–30 mins drive for most). The nearest, Goodwick Sands, is a family-friendly town beach which is only a 5-minute drive or 40-minute walk away. There's also the spectacular sandy stretch at Newport Sands (locally known as Traeth Mawr or Big Beach) and Whitesands further along towards St Davids – the UK's smallest city and home to the magnificent cathedral that gives it such status.

Food & Drink

With Fishguard within walking distance, there are loads of options – ask Colin and Sam for their up-to-date recommendations. Among them are the view-tastic BarFive, overlooking the harbour – a place for a quiet G&T or cocktail  and JT at 3 Main Street a fine dining restaurant. The recently refurnished Royal Oak is good for bar meals  and a notable plaque commemorating the defeat of a bizarre french raid in 1797 (the peace treaty was signed in the pub), while daytime bites are found in Gourmet Pig (the best coffee in the village). For fish and chips and homemade ice-cream Hooked@31 is the one. When the weather's at its best, though, it's well worth the 15-minute drive to Pwllgwaelod Beach for the very last views of the evening sun at the characterful Old Sailors (best to book @01348 811491) – a classic, quiet smugglers pub dating from 1593, with views from the garden across Fishguard Bay to the ferry port and local seafood aplenty on the menu.

Opening Times

Getting There

The campsite is 300 yards off the A40 as you approach Fishguard from Haverfordwest (on the left) or as you leave Fishguard towards Haverfordwest (on the right). On the A40, look for a brown tourist sign with the camping symbols (it says '300yrds') and a sign to Manorowen 1½. Turn here and, after 300 yards, you will arrive at Tregroes Caravan, Camping & Glamping Park.
