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.

Our favourite spot

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.

The local 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, bouyancy aids and helmets to fling yourselves off the cliffs there and shute down waterfalls: Celtic Quest Coasteering (01348 837337), recently awarded Best Visitor Experience in Wales by the national tourist board, are based in Abereiddi and will take you out for around 2½ hours.

Best local places to eat and drink

You can pre-order brekkies (which feature the farm’s home-produced sausages and bacon), packed lunches and evening meals (when available). Amble along the coastal path to the famous Sloop Inn (01348 831449) at Porthgain harbour. As well as your standard meal times they offer an hour of Bacon Sarnies from 11a.m. till noon and an afternoon menu from 3–5p.m. so you’ll never go hungry.

Why stay with us?

3 camping fields, with something to suit everyone: the flat family field has hook-ups while the third field has plenty of space for groups. Fires are allowed off the ground: firepits can be borrowed. 2 wash blocks – the main one has super-hot showers and rows of loos; the other block is more rudimentary, but close to the family field. Family room and disabled-access room. Plans for another facilities block are also pending. Barn with covered picnic benches and washing-up sinks. Drying room. Bunkhouse accommodation also available on-site. Bushcraft courses available, on which you’ll be trained in how to cut down logs and make fire or go down to the field by the pond to build rafts. Ponies and pigs on the farm.

Pitches

Open, 'free-range' camping pitches, plus a handful of more formal, electricity-supplied spots. Bunkhouses also available.
