A seven-pitch campsite on a farm with views of the Preseli Hills and Pembrokeshire coast

“It’s camping like it’s meant to be,” says Edward, the man behind Coedfryn Farm. “Or at least camping like I think it’s meant to be, anyway,” he adds. Luckily, we agree. It’s camping in a field, on a farm with simple facilities and campfires allowed. But there are a few big bonuses to this back-to-basics set up. There are the little things that proper campers will appreciate, such as a picnic bench at each pitch and complimentary firewood for your stay. And then there are the bigger things: the mountains, the sea, and the night-time stars that light up this location in the Pembrokeshire National Park.

A ten-minute drive from the nearest beach at Newport, between Fishguard and Cardigan, is where you’ll find Coedfryn Farm. The difference between here and some of the more commercial campsites on the coast is immediately apparent when you realise there’s just seven pitches in a nine-acre field. That’s more than spacious; it’s vast. Admittedly, pitches are not spread among this expansive grassland evenly but, instead, are sensibly spaced at the sheltered end, near the farm’s wooded edges. Tent campers make up the still-tiny majority here, with six out of seven pitches for canvas and just one allocated for campervans or touring caravans. All are off grid.

Each pitch has a stone-circled fire pit with a barbecue grill, a picnic bench and a little sheltered kitchen stand that's good for protecting your camping stove flame in wet or windy weather. There are a couple of showers, open-air washing up sinks, and flushing loos that are allocated one per pitch. Kids will love the farm animals in the surrounding paddocks and fields: alpacas and their little friends – a Shetland pony, pygmy goats and molly lambs.

The view is all green with Mynydd Carningli, a 1,000-foot mountain at the edge of the Preselis, as a constant backdrop. But where’s that sea we promised? Walk to the higher end of the field, and look west for that. There are a couple of extra picnic benches and fire pits here, making it a great spot to watch the sun set and to remember that the Pembrokeshire coast and its walking, wildlife, watersports and world-class beaches are just a few miles away.

Details

Facilities

Each pitch has its own campfire, BBQ, picnic table and sheltered kitchen area. There is a large barn with a gas BBQ and lots of space for eating under cover and food preparation.

Suitable For

 Away from busy roads and towns it is ideal for families wanting peace and quiet and a place for the kids to roam safely. Nature lovers can spot Red Kites and buzzards soaring high in the sky and a host of other visitors in the surrounding mature woodlands.

Coedfryn Farm Camping is a haven for walkers of all abilities with public footpaths linking us to a couple of great places to stop for a drink and the 186 mile-long Pembrokeshire Coastal Path nearby taking an astonishing 35,000 feet of ascents and descents

For Cyclists, there's no better way to explore Pembrokeshire than on two wheels, the cycle trails are quite spectacular and suitable for all ages, abilities and interests with routes hugging the Pembrokeshire coastline revealing wide-open expanses of beach and towering cliffs at every turn.

Nearby

Here in Pembrokeshire we are blessed with beaches that are among the best in the UK, maybe even the world, with Newport Sands being our favourite with its long sweeping sands and rockpools at one end. Nearby, we can go sea kayaking from Fishguard or Seal and Dolphin spotting in Cardigan. We are blessed with Beautiful scenery which can be so easily explored on foot.

Food & Drink

The Yacht Club Cafe overlooking a pretty little harbour in Lower Town Fishguard. Beautiful scenery and very accommodating. Delicious lobster salad and crab sandwiches, but the grilled mackerel steals the show! Delicious.
Cat Rock Cafe, Just a 3 minute walk from Newport’s expansive beach and with uninterrupted views across Cardigan Bay and the Preseli Hills, one of the best places in the country for a beer with a view.

Open

May–September.

The Owner Says

Starlight camping hidden in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

Coedfryn Farm is a small farm site, 10 minutes drive from the town of Newport in Pembrokeshire. All pitches have their own firepit and dining area with firewood supplied. You’ll have some friendly neighbours to get acquainted with during your stay in the form of alpacas, a couple of molly lambs, some pygmy goats and a little shetland pony!

When you roll up in this sheltered woodland valley at the foot of the Preseli Hills, you’ll be able to admire the views of the Mynydd Carningli mountain and Newport bay. By night, turn your gaze skyward for some starry skies (barbecue sizzling away and firepit roaring in the background, of course).

You’ll be surrounded by hills, mountains, wooded valleys and streams, so it’s a real walkers and cyclists paradise, and there’s a public footpath running through the site which links to the village of Nevern (10 minutes walk), where there’s a picturesque 16th century inn serving great beer and hearty meals. The local beaches, which are a plenty, start about 5 minutes drive away.

Getting There

From the A487 about two miles east of Newport (Pembrokeshire) turn on to the B4582, signposted towards Nevern. Coedfryn Farm Camping will be on the left after another two miles.

The closest train station is at Fishguard (10 miles away) or Haverfordwest (20 miles away). Both are linked via the T5 bus route which connects with train services six days a week. Ask for the Temple Bar stop near Nevern from where it’s a 30-minute walk to site. It’s not a reliable option for Sundays so do check timetables before travel.
