Budget accommodation and camping on a magnificent stretch of the Pembrokeshire coast.

Celtic Camping & Bunkhouse

Pwll Caerog Farm St Davids Pembrokshire SA62 6DG 01348 837 405

We say

As our colleagues at Cool Camping say, this campsite and hostel, just four miles north of St Davids on the Pembrokeshire Coast, will have you dancing a little jig of joy as soon as you’ve arrived, with stunning views across the sea from what is by any standards a spectacular clifftop location.

Situated on a National Trust-owned farm, it's run by the softly-spoken Ian Griffiths, who with his wife Judy opened the site back in 1992, with just a small field. Since then he has expanded the camping into further fields and converted some of the old stone barns to bunkhouses. The camping is deliberately simple with no minimum stay and campfires permitted, and there are three cosy bunkhouses – a big one made up of three eight-bed dorms and two private rooms, a smaller one with two six-bed dorms, and Ivy Lodge, which has a six-bed dorm and an eight-bed dorm. Each has kitchen facilities and communal bathrooms, a sitting room, and crockery, bedding and everything else you might need. Everything is also spotless, pricing is simple and you can either rent on a bed-and-breakfast basis or self-cater.

It's fabulous for groups, who can take over an entire bunkhouse for themselves, and great for those who want to take advantage of the outdoor activities the coast offers here, with bushcraft and survival skills available on-site and coasteering, surfing, sea kayaking and more available nearby, followed by a hog roast supper or surf-and-turf barbecue at the end of the day. There's also a sheltered swimming cove down below, Whitesands and Newgale beaches are nearby, and you couldn't be better placed for this magnificent stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coast, with the coastal path on your doorstep. We reckon there's no better value place from which to enjoy it all.
