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 have 3 spacious camping fields, all with electric hook-up (at an extra cost) and amazing coastal views, so there is something to suit everyone. 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. 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.  There is also a more rudimentary shower and toilet block, close to the family field with baby changing facilities and disabled access. We have two converted barns with amazing sea views that are supported by two commercial kitchens, 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. Bushcraft courses available, on which you’ll be trained in how to cut down logs and make a fire or go down to the field by the pond to build rafts.  We also have some pigs on the farm.

Suitable For

Tents, well-behaved dogs (and owners), campervans, caravans – yes. Any type of group welcome – Celtic Camping offers Stag and Hen weekends filled with BBQs and outdoor/sea activities galore.

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. Don wetsuits, buoyancy aids and helmets to fling yourselves off the cliffs there and shute down waterfalls: recently awarded Best Visitor Experience in Wales by the national tourist board, cracking enjoyment for around 2½ hours.

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.

Opening Times

All year.

Family Friendly

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.

Set in 250 acres of open farmland, you can enjoy knockout ocean views, our own little beach of ‘Aber Pwll’, easy access to the ‘Pembrokeshire Coastal Path’, which runs directly through the farm and a wealth of stunning local activities. 
For businesses in Wales, the Welsh government announced that from the 25th July campsites across Wales are allowed to fully re-open with the use of shared facilities (toilets, showers etc).
