Featuring incredible views of St Brides Bay as far as Ramsey Island to the north west, Skomer and Skokholm islands to the south west and Newgale to the East, Caerfai Bay Caravan and Tent Park has just over 100 pitches, spread over 3 fields, divided between touring caravans, motorhomes and tent pitches. Motorhomes can also be pitched on the caravan field on hardstanding or grass touring caravan pitches. The park itself has uninterrupted views of the sea. Perimeter hedges separate it from coastal vegetation and organic farm land before sloping down to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – which has now become part of the 870-mile Wales Coast Path. Truly this is a walker’s paradise.

The park has 28 hard-standings for caravans and motorhomes, all with electric hook ups, and a further 26 electric hook ups on grass pitches. The park has a natural slope, which is used to full advantage so you always have a beautiful sea view. Where pitches had a gentle slope efforts have been made to level these areas though levelling blocks may, on occasion, be of use. Please note that dogs are not permitted in the camping fields during school summer holidays. Sections of the caravan field are also allocated to static caravans, nine of which are for hire. All static caravans are painted in environmental green colours to have minimal impact on the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park.

Amenities refurbished for 2017 include free hot showers, modern toilet blocks with shaver points and hairdryers. The amenity block near the office, with underfloor heating, houses the laundry, dish wash sinks, kitchen, information area and internet computer. The additional amenity block in the tent field has dish wash sinks, grooming/vanity area, kitchen and wetsuit wash alongside refurbished family rooms, free hot showers and toilet facilities. There are several lockable charging facilities for phones, tablets and laptops and a freezer pack service available from reception.

The access road to the site is via a single track lane with passing places so larger units will need to take care on approach. The owners do recommend on the final approach, between the organic farm shop and just before the beach car park, guests drive slowly and let any pedestrians/cyclists pass before continuing down the road.

From the Pembrokeshire Coast path, Caerfai Bay 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. It is a good bathing beach at mid and low tide.

Caerfai farm shop open in high season only, sells organic and other produce during the high season; milk and cheese are always available (please ask in reception). Shops in St Davids (Britain’s smallest city) are a 15-20 minute walk from the park entrance, and range from a small supermarket to clothes, shoes, souvenir shops and outdoor centres. Here you can book boat trips around the islands to see the grey seals, dolphins, sea birds and the occasional whale!

Senior citizen discounts, low season, on touring caravan tariff.

Local attractions

St Davids Cathedral lies in the valley and you can just see the top of its tower from the High Street. It is a fascinating, mainly Norman, building which also serves as the parish church. Alongside is the newly restored cloisters and refectory in St Mary’s College. At spring half term the Cathedral is the focus of the St Davids Music festival. Just the other side of the river Alun, two minutes’ walk away, are the ruins of the Bishops Palace.

Three miles to the east is Solva – a little harbour village. Old lime kilns line the edge of the picturesque harbour, a scenic place to picnic or visit one of the numerous cafes or pubs. To the west of Caerfai is the tiny harbour of Porthclais, and further along you can visit the lifeboat station at St Justinians. To the north of St Davids lies Whitesands Bay – a superb stretch of sand, sea and surf – a must for one of the best places to enjoy a Pembrokeshire sunset. It has a small café, shop and plenty of car parking spaces.

Whitesands and Newgale are the surfing beaches of north Pembrokeshire. Along the northern St Davids peninsula there are further little harbours and beaches. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park visitor centre lies at the entrance to St Davids, called Oriel y Parc – which translates as the ‘Gallery of the Park’, which houses a first class gallery, featuring exhibitions which change every four months. For further information on the area, see www.orielyparc.co.uk
