6 Great campsites in Pembrokeshire!

I have been researching campsites in Wales, particularly Pembrokeshire.  Turns out there are a clutch of really rather great campsites. Pembrokeshire offers wild coast lines, hidden coves, huge sandy beaches, very little light pollution and far fewer crowds than many areas of Cornwall.

Here are some of my top finds (of course they are all campfire campsites!):

Hillfort Tipis

‘Our unspoiled land is situated in a beautiful part of Pembrokeshire and our land includes a small mountain with remains of Iron Age hillfort.

We have 12 camping pitches plus a bell tent and trailer tent in peaceful and quiet but stunning location. Each pitch has a firepit – just ask us for firewood £5.00 per net for relaxing evenings round the campfire with friends or family.’ Hillfort Tipis website

Spectacular views over the wild headland of Strumble Head. Just 12 pitches and the magnificent tipis, plus an ironage fort on the site.

Trellyn Camping

‘There are just 5 secluded pitches here at Trellyn, each with their own covered campfire area,a picnic table and grill. You can really enjoy the peace and tranquility of your own space in the countryside, confident that when you return from the day out, you’ll be on your own pitch without new neighbours. This what we are all about, a space of your own just yards from the sea to chill out and relax.’ Trellyn Woodland Camping website.

Ty Parke Farm

‘What makes us a bit different from many other campsites is that we only ever take a maximum of 10 camping bookings (plus three yurt bookings) at a time, on a site that could easily accommodate one hundred or more tents. And because you need to be pre-booked to stay, it makes for a very friendly, personal and safe holiday environment.’ Ty Parke Farm Website

Arymwny

‘Come for a short stay or stay longer. Bring your own shelter. See the starts and hear the sea. Leave the tarmac behind and feel the earth. Walk the old ways. Strip away those outer layers and feel the breeze of freedom. Be a little wild! Come alone, come together. Space and time for yourself, your family, your friends.Light your fire and mull it over, or go and roam for a while…

You many be walking on the nearby coastpath and want to pitch up somewhere without losing that zest, or perhaps you just want somewhere to park up and explore the network of footpaths and those little coves and sandy beaches, knowing you can settle down at night under wide open skies.’ Arymwny – Camping Wild Wales website.

This wild, little site with sea views looks well worth a visit.

Celtic Camping

‘As our name suggests Camping is very close to our hearts. Enjoy knockout ocean views and enjoy the great facilities next to the ‘Pembrokeshire Coastal Path’ and explore our very own little beach of ‘Aber Pwll’ at the foot of the farm.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs directly through the farm giving easy access to some the finest scenery in the UK’s only coastal National Park. At the foot of the farm lies a small sheltered bay of ‘Aber Pwll’ where seals can be found during most of the year.’ Celtic Camping website

More amazing sea views plus great new shower block. Click here for my personal review.

Walton West Campsite

‘A camping holiday field within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park within walking distance to the beautiful beaches of Little Haven and Broad haven.
We offer a basic but beautifully located family campsite in a hidden wildlife rich location.

Our 4 acre organic camping field is set less than a mile back from the coast and hidden from view up a windy track past our duck pond and woods, surrounded by hedgerows, meadow and wildlife scrubland with views of pasture farmland, St David’s head and glimpses of the sea.’ Walton West website

A lovely basic campsite with good access to the beach.

Wow, what a selection.  So many campsites – so little time!

    I love Pembrokeshire so much! Had many happy holidays as a child in this area. We are going for two weeks in July- but in a cottage with friends. Would love to camp there at some point though. We just had a beautiful weekend camping in Dorset, at this place http://www.burnbake.com, have you ever been there? Was a great site with ropes swings and campfires gallore! Was fairly busy though- I think everyone had the same idea! But a lovely atmosphere.

      Thanks for that Emily, always good to hear of good campsites! I do know of Burnbake although I haven’t been there. as far as I can make out campfires are permitted off the ground and you need to bring your own brazier as they don’t hire them. Is that right? Would love to hear the situation from someone who’s been there!

      • emilymv says:

        Yes, fires are permitted as long as they are off the ground. Most people had them in various different metal containers. You can actually hire a fire pit, kind of a circular one with three legs, for £3/4 pounds. I would definitely recommend the site but if you can go at a quieter time that would be best.

    Ah, thanks Emily, this is excellent news! I will def be adding Burnbake to the long list of campsites I need to visit! I love that area of the country.

    • emilymv says:

      Thanks to you too Hazel, your blog has inspired me to get out there and go camping! And to look out for those more wild campsites and campfires! x

    Aww, that’s lovely to hear thanks! I am currently being thwarted in my camping by my eldest daughter’s social life – no camping last weekend or next, despite good weather. Very frustrating.
