Staying at Caerfai Bay provides a stunning memorable backdrop to your holiday where you can enjoy unrivalled views of St Brides Bay. We have pitches to suit all campers and tourers arriving at our Park and pitches are allocated to suit your requirements. Designated pitches mean you can enjoy your own plot of Pembrokeshire with space to relax, unwind and breathe.
Caerfai Bay, only a 5 minute walk, is accessed via a designated concrete footpath ending in a few steps to the pebbly foreshore. At low tide it has a beautiful broad extent of sand with rock pools and caves at either side for explorers young and old to venture and discover. Caerfai is a brilliant family bathing beach at mid and low tide, at high tide it’s an angler’s paradise – or you could always fish off the “points” at Caerfai. Caerfai beach is dog friendly and dogs are permitted on the beach year-round. Tent fields have dog friendly and non-dog areas.

Accessibility Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park is located just south of St Davids and accessed by a single track road with passing places. The road is wide enough for motor homes and minibuses but not suitable for full length buses or coaches. Most people travelling to Caerfai have their own transport. Those relying on public transport will use the train to Fishguard or Haverfordwest and connecting bus to St Davids. From St Davids it is just under a mile walk to Caerfai or taxi services are available, but the only wheelchair accessible taxi service at present is the “Whitesands Bay” taxi service which can be contacted on 01437 720987, or mobiles 07836 780194 (Vodafone) 07817 003457 (Orange). Email: email@example.com. City of St Davids Taxi Service (Frank John) also provide a very helpful service; tel 01437 721731, mobile 07974 391522, email: firstname.lastname@example.org website: www.stdavidstaxis.co.uk Pembrokeshire Coastal Bus Services are designed to access the Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail without having to use a car. The “Celtic Coaster” bus service takes you to the St Davids Peninsula and can carry wheelchairs. The 14 seater minibus runs from St Davids to Porth Clais, St Justinians and Whitesands. Cars can be parked alongside tents and caravans for alighting and embarkation. The private roads on site are very narrow and there are several small speed ramps which are marked. Access to individual pitches is over grass land. Hearing Impaired Visitors When the Park Office has several people booking in, it may be difficult for those persons who are hard of hearing (including staff) to understand. Either a quieter time/room can be arranged, or there are facilities for visitors to give/take written instructions. There is a fax machine which can be made available to visitors on request. Visually Impaired Visitors Such is the nature of the Caravan and Tent Park that it is more suited to accompanied visually impaired visitors. There are wide open spaces, which cannot be railed off, and much is uneven. Where there are steps these are highlighted in white paint, and drops in the landscape indicated with white painted stones. This is a small business and we do not have Braille facilities, but large print information can be produced on request. Mobility Impaired Visitors Parking is available next to the office, but there are no specifically allocated disabled bays. The access to the office is a low gradient ramp with close metal spar rail on one side and raised level on the other. The main desk is at high level, but wheelchair users can use the lower desk in the front office, which is located immediately before the main desk. There is a wheelchair which can be loaned, or more specialised wheelchairs and aids can be hired from PIPPA (Physically Impaired People of Pembrokeshire Association) tel: 01437 760999 The disabled shower/toilet can also be accessed from the same ramp as the office, however, the laundry, dishwash and information rooms which are also accessible are not designed for wheelchair use. At present we do not have any wheelchair accessible caravans, but there are plans to develop this facility in future. Attractions: Unfortunately Caerfai Beach itself is not accessible for wheelchairs, however there are some local places such as Whitesands, which is a popular and accessible beach that sees a lot of activity in summer. At Abereiddy a few miles further north there is a wheelchair friendly coastal path that starts from the beach car park and continues to the “Blue Lagoon”. The St Davids Cathedral has parking in the grounds and most of the building is accessible.
