Campsite and bunkhouses that are perfectly placed to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast

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.

The Owner Says

At Celtic Camping you have space to breathe, space to play and space to relax on our Pembrokeshire camping site. 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).
"Please do not travel to the campsite if you or anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms. Please also show consideration for everyone in the local community. We also urge everyone to respect social distance in and around the campsite plus whilst you are out in the local area and maintain good hand sanitation - very masks and face-covering where appropriate".

What’s special about our place?

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.

What’s special about our area?

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.

Best local places to eat and 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.

Why stay with us?

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.
