Camping area

General

  • Peaceful site with sea views, 15 minutes from Carmarthen Bay
  • A few minutes' walk from a 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 15-minute drive of this peaceful south Wales getaway you’ll also reach beaches famed the world over. The full seven sandy miles of secluded and silky Cefn Sidan, for example, as well as stunning Amroth Bay, and the sands and surf of Rhossili, regularly voted as one of the best beaches on the planet.

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; 'tis 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.

Please note this is a quiet, peaceful site: no radios/music are to be played after 10pm and if you wish to party this isn't the site for you.

    Ferryside Farm Caravan and Campsite is fantastic!!

    This campsite is great for people who enjoy the peace and quiet. Making your own fun and getting away from all the mod cons. We went fishing, picking cockles, walking, swimming in the sea, visited to a castle, took the ferry to Lansteffan. Swing ball by the tent and many games of cards..

    The facilities are very clean.

    The owner is extremely friendly and helpful.

    Will definitely be visiting again..

    The view was amazing, the walk to the village was lovely and we walked back via the salt marsh, it was all very pretty while watching the sun set. The manager Phil was great, very welcoming and gave us ideas of walks and things to do locally. The toilet blocks were clean and tidy. All round it was great.

    Location - beautiful view of the hills and beach/water, and local rail line. Short walk to the centre of Ferryside, most of which is on pathway. Easy site to reach, as not too far from the major roads.
    Cleanliness of site and toilet block. Fresh flowers in the female toilet block a nice touch.
    Although the site is a little hilly, the camping pitches are well spaced and spread out. If the land was flat you wouldn't get the views!
    As with many other reviewers, I have to agree that both Phil and Graham made us feel very welcome
    Noise 'off' by 10pm!

    Disliked: 

    Yes, you did have to pay to use the showers, but this is almost a 'like' as it actually helped in that people used them quickly and sparingly, and we never had to wait to use a unit. Add in the cost of the pitch and it is still one of the cheapest places we've camped for the quality.

Directions


By car:
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.

By train:
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.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Naturally, the beaches – and the castles – are first: after a paddle on Ferryside beach take a walk to see 12th-century Llansteffan Castle, overlooking the sands of 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.

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 Laugharne is within 17 miles, Oystermouth 27, Newcastle Emlyn 28 and Carew 36.

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 or Pembrey Country Park, which has a dry ski slope, wildlife trails, horse riding and the longest toboggan run in Wales.

Two types of racing are within 15 minutes of Ferryside: motor at Pembrey Racing Circuit and horse at Ffos Las Racecourse.

Must see

  • Pembrey Country Park (6.8 miles)
  • National Botanic Garden of Wales (10.2 miles)
  • National Wetland Centre Wales (12.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Rhossili Visitor Centre and Shop (14.5 miles)
  • Tudor Merchant's House (16.1 miles)
