- Peaceful site with sea views, 15 minutes from Carmarthen Bay
- A few minutes' walk from the beach, a castle and a village pub
- Half a mile from trains to the Gower Peninsula and Cardiff
You can see the sea from Ferryside Farm Caravan Park and Campsite. But pack the bucket and spade and then an extra one or two, for within a mere 15-minute drive of this peaceful south Wales getaway you’ll also reach Carmarthen Bay beaches famed the world over: the full seven sandy miles of secluded and silky Cefn Sidan, beaut Amroth Bay, and the sands and surf of Rhossili, regularly voted as one of the best beaches on the planet by baskers, view fans and board boffins.
Keep the car or take the train from here: Ferryside is only a few miles off the A484 between Carmarthen and Kidwelly with quick access to both towns as well as Swansea and Llanelli, and half a mile from Ferryside Rail Station where you can steam ahead to the Gower Peninsula, Milford Haven, Tenby, Pembrokeshire and Cardiff or on to Crewe, London and Manchester.
And that sea you can see from the farm? It and Ferryside Beach (and a castle; it is Wales after all) are a few minutes’ walk away, where you’ll also find a village pub and the Ferry Cabin, ‘where locals like to eat’. Kidwelly, the nearest village after Ferryside, has another pub, a restaurant, an off-licence and a newsagents.
Facilities at Ferryside include a shower and toilet block. Guests can pick their own pitches, and dog guests are welcome too.
No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

On approaching the first roundabout in Carmarthen turn left onto the A484 for Kidwelly. After about 500 metres you will pass Morrisons on the left-hand side. Go through the village of Idole (careful - there is a speed camera!) and continue for another three miles passing the Star Forge Garage on the right. A mile down a hill, take the turning for Ferryside located on the right-hand side (opposite the turning for Llandyfaelog). As you're approaching the village, turn right immediately before the humpback bridge. Ferryside Farm is the first property on the right.
From London, Bristol, Cardiff, or Swansea: the village of Ferryside can be reached via Arriva and First Great Western. Please check times before travelling. On arrival head down through the village passing the school on your right. After about 1.5 miles you will cross over a humpback bridge where the property can be accessed turning left into a no through road and then right into the driveway.
Absolutely naturally, the beaches – and the castles – are first: take a walk after a lie on Ferryside beach to see twelfth century Llansteffan Castle, overlooking the sand and the River Tywi flowing into Carmarthen Bay. It’s not much of a surprise to find out that this perch has been protected since at least Iron Age times – there was once an Iron Age fort here built by savvy ancestors protecting their section of bay from invaders.
Access to Llansteffan these days is by a public footpath and lane; climb up from the estuary car park 800m away. (Rumours that a secret passageway runs from the castle to nearby Plas Bay are so far unfounded – prizes for any holidaymaker who proves the point).
A fine collection of other castles are in the vicinity – again, it is Wales after all: 12th-century Kidwelly Castle and 11th-century Carmarthen Castle are the closest, but Laughherne is within 17 miles, Oystermouth 27, Emlyn 28 and Carew 36.
Legend lovers may also like to know that the old market town of Carmarthen is where Merlin is said to have born: the remains of Merlin’s Oak, a tree said to predict the ‘drowning’ of the town if it was ever removed, are now in the foyer of St. Peter’s Civic Hall. Wizard.
Once (or before) the castles are conquered, Carmarthen Bay, the Gower Peninsula and neighbouring Pembrokeshire have so many award-winning beaches you are hereby challenged to get around them in one trip.
If you then fancy something inland, get to Colby Woods and Gardens from Amroth Bay or Pembrey County Park from Cefn Sands, which has a dry ski slope, eight wildlife trails, horse-riding and the longest toboggan run in Wales (something you surely might not expect near seven miles of beach).
Two types of racing are within 15 minutes of Ferryside: motor at Pembrey Racing Circuit and horse at Ffos Las Racecourse, and if you feel like speeding a little further away, the Brecon Beacons National Park and the tiny city of St Davids are to the east and north-west.
