Ferryside Farm Caravan Park and Campsite: Ferryside Farm

General

  • Peaceful site with sea views, 15 minutes from Carmarthen Bay
  • A 10-minute walk from a beach 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 are 10 minutes’ walk away, as are a village pub and a couple of eateries. A kids' play area is five minutes' walk away behind the rugby club. Kidwelly, the nearest village after Ferryside, has another pub, Indian and Chinese takeaways, 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.

    The campsite was amazing!!! We absolutely loved staying here and we were blown away by how nice it was. We felt extremely welcome and well looked after, the view was fabulous, and the facilities were perfect for us — showers and loos were remarkably clean and great sinks for washing dishes. Missing the site now that we’re home and hope we are lucky enough to return one day, thank you for having us!!!

    A lovely site in a great location. Short walk to pubs and shop. The train station is about a mile away very handy if you want to abandon the car. The pitches were a decent size and well spaced. The views were great and we had a lovely, relaxing break. Great value for money. We will be returning.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside was lack of changing area within shower space.

    Loved being able to choose our own pitch. Stunning views. Short drives to many beautiful places to visit. Shower/toilet blocks well maintained and clean. Phil is so welcoming, friendly and amenable. Very laid back camping unlike some places.

    Disliked: 

    Paying for showers (40p for 2 minutes £1 for 7 minutes) Not a criticism as I understand the reasonings behind coin operated showers but I have very long and curly hair that takes a lot of time to wash sand out of it. 😊

Local attractions

Naturally, the beaches – and the castles – are first: a paddle on Ferryside beach gives you a chance to see 12th-century Llansteffan Castle, on the other side of the Towy Estuary. 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. If you want to pop over for a look (as you should), it's a half-hour drive to get there.

A fine collection of other castles are in the vicinity – 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)
