Space to relax

General

  • Peaceful 10-acre site two miles from Solva harbour
  • Within 15 minutes' drive of St Davids and Newgale beach
  • Campfires welcome, with firepits provided and wood for sale

Stretched across 10 acres, with open space all around and within easy striking distance of St Davids and Solva... Ffynnonddewi’s a super spot for a break in pretty Pembrokeshire.

‘Back to basics camping as it used to be – but with better bathrooms’ is how the folk here see their site. Stargazing around the campfire is one of their fave pursuits, so they’ve kitted the place out with firepits and will happily sell you some wood to stack up in them. Barbecues are welcome too, with supplies to be sourced from the delis of St Davids or the bigger supermarkets 15 minutes away in Haverfordwest.

There aren’t any leisure facilities on site, but frankly who needs them with all sorts of beaches, coastal walks and outdoorsy antics to be had so close by? Nippers with energy to spare have plenty of space to run about and play games on site, and there’s a separate six acres next door where dogs can be liberated from the lead for some dashing about.

And those bathrooms? They’re far from basic, with proper toilets and hot showers to hose off the sand after a beachy outing. There’s also a washing-up area for easy post-dinner cleanups and wifi to keep track of what the rest of the world’s up to.

    Everything.
    The pitches are level and amply spaced and limited to only 15 - giving you great privacy.
    Gareth and Luci showed genuine interest in making sure everyone enjoyed their stay. The facilities were clean and well maintained. Our hosts have put a lot of thought into the site and consequently we enjoyed:
    . Free WiFi
    . Breakfast rolls/baguettes delivered to your tent
    . Free firepits - with onsite log purchases ( delivered to your tent)
    . Phone charging stations
    . Large playing area for kids to run around
    . Well lit and maintained toilet/shower block
    . Ample rubbish disposal and recycling facilities
    . Ample parking
    And, most importantly; a quiet, brilliant campsite with welcoming hosts.
    We highly recommend pitching up here and look forward to the improvements planned for next year!

From the manager...

Glad you guys enjoyed your stay.

I think just about every site could do with extra facilities over the Bank Holiday weekend, we have set our selves up with a third more toilets and twice as many showers as is recommended for site licensing. It is difficult to get the balance right between peak time requirements and the rest of the season.
We will probably have a composting loo or two next year which should take some of the pressure off of the other facilities.

    WiFi a bit on and off but that might actually be a good thing too (to keep kids off tablets)

From the manager...

Thanks for the lovely review, was great to meet you guys and particularly enjoyed the gin.
Hopefully we will see you guys again soon.

Wi-Fi is always going to be an issue for us, we already spend a small fortune providing wi-fi across our site.
The internet comes in through a remote wi-fi network and runs at around 30 Mbps which is a fantastic speed for such a rural location(BT line runs at at below 1 Mbps), however it can't cope with the amount of streaming being demanded of it, nowadays, when we are full.
It is more than adequate for browsing the internet and sending the odd email and we do make this clear in our handout. We are looking for a solution for next year.

  • Liked: 

    We had a wonderful time with Gareth and Luci at Ffynnonddewi. We loved the remoteness of the location and met some lovely campers whilst on the site. The kids loved congregating in the middle for a knock around with the site football or just playing games and enjoying the open air and space. Beautiful space to sit of an evening and enjoy one of the firepits provided. We enjoyed the nearby beaches of Whitesands and Widemouth Bay and excursions to St Davids, Fishguard and Tenby. Overall, the overarching beauty of Pembrokeshire and the friendliness of Gareth and Lucy as hosts. The vegi breakfast roll on our day of departure was scrumptious and Gareth was always on hand if you needed anything. Great site to which we will definitely return and would highly recommend.

Hi Luke

    Peaceful site with laid back, friendly hosts. Some nice touches like solar panel charging and freezers to refreeze your own packs. (A donation to the air ambulance is appreciated). Breakfast brought to your tent for a good price. Free firepit. Good location for the beaches. Would highly recommend and we will be back.

Local attractions

Pembrokeshire’s famed for its beaches – and rightly so, for they are many and varied. Stride forth on foot from Ffynnonddewi and you’ll get to the nearest little beach in about half an hour; for something somewhat more massive, it’s a 10-minute drive to the two miles of splendid sands at Newgale, or 20 minutes to Whitesands. Both are popular surf hangouts too, with kit hire and guidance to be had.

In between the beaches, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs along all 186 miles of the county’s coastline and makes for some cracking days of sea-view strolling. Should you be hankering after something more energetic, activity centres 15 minutes away in St Davids can hook you up with days of kayaking, paddleboarding, coasteering and climbing.

It’s worth sticking around in St Davids for a while too, to take a wander around the cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, and grab a bite in one of its independent restaurants or pubs. It’s also the place to sign up for boat trips to Ramsey Island, home to Wales’s most sizeable grey seal colony.

Must see

  • St Davids Cathedral (4.5 miles)
  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (15.7 miles)
  • Pembroke Castle (17.5 miles)

National Trust

  • St David's Visitor Centre and Shop (4.8 miles)
  • Stackpole Estate (20.4 miles)
