Knock-out sea views, direct access onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a beach within reach

This campsite will have you dancing a little jig of joy as soon as you’ve stepped foot on its delightful ground. Nuzzling the shores of the Irish Sea, the gaping National Trust land on which the farm and campsite reside offers knock-out views along the coast as well as direct access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and a sheltered swimming cove.

Owner Ian is a softly spoken guy who greets campers with warmth and ease. He and his wife Judy opened the site back in 1992 with just a tiny green corner of grass for campers. Since then he’s added a flat terrace with electrical hook-ups, situated even closer to the coast, for families and, because two is never a crowd, a third field – huge, undulating and guarded by a magnificent army of hawthorn bushes – has also been cleared for camping. The farm’s evolution didn’t stop there; its diminishing outbuildings have also been transformed into an impressive facilities block, while barns have become year-round holiday accommodation, activity and dining spaces, or cosy, ivy-clad bunk houses. The camping meadows have almost become a footnote to the rest of the farm’s great holiday offerings, albeit the sort of footnote that you’ll instantly remember and will return to again and again and again.

Testament to the site’s allure are the tales of grumpy teenagers who arrive in a sulk at the lack of mobile-phone signal, but who after a week of outdoor activities, campfires and barbecues, become tearful when it comes to going home. One or two Cool Camping authors may even confess to having felt the same way on packing up their tents…

Details

Facilities

We are a rustic family-run open field campsite that fully supports diversification, so we deal with individuals, families, and larger groups - all we ask is for you to respect your fellow campers and understand that whilst you may have come away to meet up with family and friends there are others have also come away for a bit of peace and quiet.  You should not have to be told to keep the noise down - you should be respectful to others on site.    We have 3 spacious camping fields, all with electric hook-up (at an extra cost) around all fields and amazing coastal views - so there is something to suit everyone.  We also have several satellite camping fields that allow you to break away from the main camping areas.  There is a flat enclosed family field, with two other larger external fields that have plenty of space for groups. Fires are allowed providing they are off the ground: fire-pits can be borrowed but these are limited so we advise you to bring your own. We have 2 main wash/toilet blocks servicing both the North and South sites – both have lovely warm showers, rows of loos and sinks, which are cleaned daily.  Additionally, to support the vast numbers of campers wanting to get away, we have hired in extra portaloos to ensure there are toilet facilities in every field along with extra external washing up sinks.  There is also a more rudimentary shower and toilet block, close to the family field with baby changing facilities and disabled access.

Inside our two converted barns, we provide you with amazing sea views, these are ideal for dining in. Both barns have external and internal washing-up sinks. There is an external drying room to accommodate wet suit buoyancy aids etc. We also have a large range of bunkhouses and normal accommodation available on-site.   WiFi is provided free of charge and whilst we cannot cover the whole site it is accessible around the buildings.  We have also provided washing machines and driers for emergency used- NB these are not there for you to do your weekly wash and they are a shared facility for all campers.   We are a coastal site and with amazing views, it can be windy, so you need to ensure to have the correct camping equipment to withstand our coastal weather if it changes.

Suitable For

We allow everything on-site from tents,  trailer tents, campervans, caravans and motorhomes including well-behaved dogs (and owners). Any type of group is welcome, however, we would ask that Stag and Hen groups refrain from coming here during the main camping periods, as we are a family-orientated site.   So if you are a first-time camper or a seasoned camper we are sure that the site you provide you with everything you need. 

Please though remember, we are a coastal campsite and with amazing sea views and open space, we can be subjected to windy weather.  To that end, campers need to ensure that arrive here with the correct camping equipment and knowledgeable in not only how to erect their tents but also the functionality of their camping vehicles' caravans or campervans. 

Please understand that if you are looking for a Caravan Camping Club type site, then that is not what we provide - we are open field, rustic camping that has been enjoyed by thousands of people over the years.   Additionally, we do not allocate individual pitches  - our ethos has very much been down to your as individuals to find a pitch that suite you and your requirements rather than being forced into a site that is not suitable for you and your camping needs - clearly when the site is full then you have to go with what is available - but we have loads of room, so there is space on site for everyone.

Included in the price are the use of communal fridges and freezers plus washing machines and tumble driers.  Please note these are there for everyone's use and should not be hogged.   Additionally, we have provided WiFi across site  - and whilst is it limited to the building areas it is enough for you to pick up emails etc and social media.  However, if you are looking to download films with massive data then this is not what we have provided it for.  Besides, there are 186 miles of Pembrokeshire coastal path there for you to enjoy, we also have loads of amazing beaches for you to explore and get away from those mobile screens. 😎👍

Nearby

The pebble beach is a 10-minute walk away – just off the coast path. It’s small but has rockpools and is good for swimming. Or ramble along the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path for just over 30 minutes towards Abereiddi’s famous Blue Lagoon. For the activities, we use external providers and you are welcome to book directly with them. Here are a few companies that we work with:  Man Up UK - 07855 954702  CELTIC QUEST COASTEERING - 01348 837337 TYF ADVENTURE  - 01437 721 611 ADVENTURE BEYOND - 01239 612133 - 07787123761

They all have pretty amazing websites and offer a fantastic service. We can also put you in touch with a local boat company (Voyages of Discovery - 01437 721911) that runs fantastic trips around our islands and just offshore.

Food & Drink

There are lots of places that you can visit locally and whilst we are slightly remote taxis are not a problem. There is also a local bus service that runs infrequently up and down the coast road. St Davids, which is 4 miles away, has a number of really good pubs The Bishops and The Farmers Arms, along with some cracking hotel restaurants; St Davids Cross Hotel and The Grove Hotel.

In the other direction, Porthgain, which is a tiny fishing village with a famous pub called "The Sloop"; which serves fine ales and very good food and is set in a beautiful location. Also in Porthgain, you can also find the fabulous fish restaurant 'The Shed' which serves up delicious fish and chips and freshly caught fish specials.

If you are looking for breakfast you can either eat here on-site, (when we are open) or venture into St Davids where you will find The Mill cafe and Pilgrims Cafe at Oriel y Prac but if you are looking for something different there is the amazing restaurant The Really Wild Emporium.

There is also CK's NISA convenience store and supermarket which provides just about all your needs  - this is situated 4 miles away in St Davids.  For those who need a little more both Tescos and Morrison drop off on-site.

Farm machinery and the on site pond (although this is ringed by a fence) to be mindful of, and you’re on a cliff-top.

Getting There

Remember if you are coming in from the south of the county  - follow the A487 coast road all the way into St Davids - NB - SatNav will try and take you across country before Solva and bring you in via all of the back farm lanes - whilst technically this is the shortest route it can be a nightmare this time of year as the farmers are pulling in their harvests. Once in St Davids follow the one-way circuit until you depart toward Fishguard - remaining on the A487 - as soon as you leave St Davids turn left immediately before the Rugby Club and follow that back road for 4 miles until you see the Celtic Camping sign on the left-hand side.

If you are coming from North of the county  - head down the A487 from Fishguard toward St Davids -  when you arrive in the village of Croes-goch, you will see the Farm Store on the right-hand side - just after the store, take the next right down Abereiddy Road and follow this road for 1.5 miles until you reach a road junction - to left at the junction and follow this road for 1.5 miles through the very small village of Berea, until you see the Celtic Camping sign - you should have the sea on your right hand should - turn right down the farm track to the car park. 

Once you arrive at the car park, you will see the reception and portacabin office on the right-hand side

Take a train to Haverfordwest and from the bus station there hop on the Puffin Shuttle (no. 400) to St David’s, then the Strumble Shuttle (no.404), which will drop you off near the site on request. Celtic Camping is 4 miles from St David’s.
