6 cool campsites with cracking coastal views

Fancy a campsite next to the beach in an idyllic location?

Pembrokeshire is well known for it's range of campsites, here are just a few of our cracking coastal sites...

Celtic Camping & Bunkhouses in Berea, St Davids

Situated a stones throw from the Coast Path, Abereiddy and the magical Blue Lagoon and only 4 miles outside of St Davids, this campsite's location is hard to beat. With views across the open sea, its the perfect spot to sit back, relax and just take it all in. The site can cater for many with fabulous group accommodation, we're talking big groups, 200-300 people! or smaller bunkhouses idea for groups of friends or large families. And if its just you and your tent, you'll easily find a pitch with those to die for views.

Meadow Farm Campsite in Tenby

Right at the end of The Croft in Tenby is a great little campsite for tents, caravans and camper vans. It probably has the best views of all the campsites around Tenby stretching across the bay to Caldey Island. Facilities are limited but with views like this, who needs a bar or clubhouse? It’s easy walking distance to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Tenby North Beach, the harbour and the town. A nearby alternative is Windmills Campsite accessed via New Hedges. There are several bigger campsites around Tenby with a full list of facilities if you prefer.

Ty Canol, Newport

Right on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and overlooking Newport Bay, this is a great site for tents, caravans and camper vans. Spread over three fields, there’s plenty of room even in the height of summer. There’s even a tiny bunk room in the farm for over-nighting Coast Path walkers. Facilities are limited but there is an undercover area for cooking if it’s raining. A short walk on the Coast Path brings you to Newport Parrog, one of the most idyllic locations on the planet! Alternatives are Conifers campsite on the adjacent farm or Morawelon on the Parrog.

Fishguard Bay Caravan and Camping Park

Perched on the cliff top just east of Fishguard itself, this mixed site has static caravans for hire and a camp site for tents, touring caravans and camper vans. A little exposed if the weather is wild but stupendous views when it’s not! This site has some indoor facilities with a games room and TV lounge. A half hour walk along the coast path takes you to a tiny secret beach at Aberbach.

Upper Portclew Farm at Freshwater East

A slightly sloping field overlooking the spectacular Freshwater East beach. Views extend right round the bay to Caldey Island. Facilities are limited again but there’s a bar/restaurant at Trewent Park at the bottom of the hill and a decent pub in the village at the top. The Caravan Club site is nearby and has superior facilities but it doesn’t have the views. 

Caerfai Farm Campsite in St Davids

On the edge of St Davids is one of the most eco-friendly farms you could hope to find: Organic, powered by renewable sources and they make great cheeses from their own herd of cows. The best part, however, is the location. It’s right above the fantastic Caerfai Bay beach. Campsite facilities are good, the fields fairly flat and you get direct access onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. In 2013 they also started providing yurts that you can hire. Caerfai Bay Caravan & Tent Park or Glan y Mor campsites are in the same location.
