Pencarnan Farm Caravan and Camping Site: Overlooking Porthsele beach

General

  • Family-run site situated on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path
  • Direct access to Porthsele beach; a mile from Whitesands
  • Farm shop, coffee hut, bar and pizzas available in high season

Fancy a stay on a family-run farm… with direct access to a beach below? Make your way to Pencarnan Farm Caravan and Camping Site, a 96-acre farm overlooking Porthsele beach on the Pembrokeshire coast. The site is on the most western tip of Pembrokeshire, with views of St Georges Channel connecting the Irish and Celtic seas.

You'll be in good company with a stay here: generations of the same family have been running the site since the mid-1950s, a holiday spot for guests who return year after year – some with their kids and grandkids now in tow. This place is just the ticket for outdoor adventures too, as it's set directly above Porthsele beach (with private vehicle access so you can cart all your kit along with you).

The sea and bay are safe for swimming and kayaking, and there are plenty of rockpools to explore at low tide. If you haven’t got your fill of sea breeze, surfing beach Whitesands is a one-mile walk along the coastal path or, if you’re feeling adventurous, a half-mile swim or kayak from Porthsele.

Sorting supplies is easy at the farm too: in the high season, a site shop is on hand with camping and food supplies, wetsuits and logs for beach fires, and a coffee hut opens every day. A bar and pizzas are also available at peak times.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Excellent site with some of the best views and so quiet.25/05/2022

    This site is so far from main roads that you really do get absolute silence, which is exactly what we wanted.
    5 minutes down to a beautiful cove and also great for coastal walks.
    The courtyard is a lovely addition but we only used it once for pizza. Great when you've travelled hours and just want a quick bite to eat.

    The real views are on the lower fields. If we went again we'd go off grid for the views and proximity to the sea.

    Loved the cat Tod and dog who came to visit us daily!

    Disliked: 

    We visited at a quiet time so I can imagine the toilets and showers getting pretty busy as there is only one block for the whole site.

    Be prepared to be open to the elements - it's westerly facing- not a dislike as we were well prepared but it's on top of and close to the coast so expect the weather conditions that come with this.

    Beautiful relaxed site. Easy walk but not easy access to some wonderful Atlantic beaches. The site staff were super helpful and friendly. There is a well stocked shop on site if you have forgotten any essentials.
    There was a lot of space and the way they had managed the pitches you could be close to other humans but not on top of each other.

    Warm welcome from Hal and Todd... you will see if you visit.

    All the showers, toilets and washing up areas were spotless.

    I liked the fact that there weren't any kids or rowdy groups around. When you are on your own and looking for peace and quiet and rest from a hectic life that's not what you need 😃

    Disliked: 

    Not much ...

    The only weird thing was that I arrived a good hour before last check in no one answered any of the mobile numbers and I watched a girl walk past the ringing phone and when I called out she disappeared into another room. No call back to the messages, no text acknowledgement of my arrival.

    It's a good job I had the confidence to just go and find a spot to set up others might have turned around and left 😉

    Great location just a stones throw from the beach and the beautiful Pembrokeshire costal walkway. It's a short walk to St David's from the site which is the UK's smallest city.
    If you own a dog it's paradise for them. The owners of site have a very relaxed approach to dogs and within reason, you can let your dog roam freely. Sometimes the owners' dogs come and join you for a walk down to the beach which is also dog friendly.
    Some of the washing facilities were being upgraded while we were there so it's unfair to comment about them. It was early in the season and some of the hospitality facilities like a Pizza Oven and a Bar were closed although a Cafe was open. A shop on site sells groceries too.
    I'd certainly recommend this site.

    Disliked: 

    WiFi was poor or non existent on the pitch area but ok in the hospitality area. Anyway who cares we were on holiday and needed a rest from the internet.

Local attractions

This is heaven for beach buffs: Porthsele and Whitesands beaches are both within walking distance of Pencarnan. At Porthsele, take your pick from kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding from its sandy shore; if fishing's more your bag you can fish for mackerel, pollock and seabass from the beach and from certain points on the cliff around Pencarnan's land.

There are also a few marked climbing spots around the cliffs on the land and some good entry points for coasteering or a coastal swim back to Porthsele beach… followed back at base with a sunset beach fire or barbecue to end the day. The famed surfing centre of Whitesands, a mile away on the coast path from Pencarnan, has a café, deckchairs and wetsuit hire, plus lifeguards in the summer months.

Heading south, St Justinian’s (under a mile away along the coast path) is home to RNLI St Davids Lifeboat Station and a departure point for boat trips around, onto and beyond Ramsey Island to spy seals, seabirds, porpoises, whales, dolphins and sharks. Make time too for a trip to the tiny city of St Davids, to browse its shops and galleries and take a look at sixth-century St Davids Cathedral.

  • Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (20.2 miles)
